Movie Reviews: Memory: The Origins Of Alien + Tommy

Memory: The Origins Of Alien (2019)

A documentary about Ridley Soctt's franchise and its origins. This was okay.

Tommy (1975)

The Who's rock opera is a visually striking movie. It's just not a very good movie. Oliver Reed, Roger Daltrey, Tina Turner, Ann-Margaret, Jack Nicholson, Elton John and Robert Powell are among the cast.

There are many songs. Ken Russell directed this. A faithless wife (Ann-Margaret) has her husband (Powell) murdered by her man (Reed). This leads to terrible consequences for her son who grows up to be Daltrey, who could pass for Michael Fassbender's older brother – in a very dim light.

Reed looks sinister. Ugly clothes are worn. Random arbitary events happen in this negligible film. Pinball is played. Unlikely events happen in this derisory but distinctive looking film. This was a mad vision of horrific events. This is wearying extravagant imagery. This was diabolical. This fashions its own narrative. This was meandering.

Best Line:

“You won't be a boy no more.”
