Alien Covenant

Going to the movies these days is a different experience-- reserved seating, reclining seats, so civilized.  The theater where we saw Alien Covenant even has a liquor license and a full bar.  Drew ordered pretzel nuggets, and they brought his order to our seats.


Drew keeps reminding me that he took me to see the original Alien back in 1979.   So of course we had to let Ridley Scott scare the living daylights out of us again.

And yes, he did scare us.  

A sleeper ship headed for a colony planet experiences technical issues, causing the crew to wake prematurely.  The captain discovers what appears to be a habitable planet close by.  There they find David, the artificial life form from Prometheus.  Terror ensues. 

Thoroughly enjoyable.

We saw the movie in the late afternoon, then headed to our favorite seafood place, Southside Fish and Clam, for dinner -- I had a mini crab cake appetizer and Parmesan-crusted tilapia, Drew had lobster bisque and mini lobster tails over linguini.

And home in time for Dr. Who.

Our town here the movie theater was bought including most of the block is sitting in a remodel shambles.
Now the couple is getting a divorce and who know how it will end up.
Coffee is on
