It's goofy, but it's also not the worst idea for a late-in-the-game Star Trek movie. It is fun to see Tom Hardy in such an early role in his career.
Alien is a slow burner but a gripping tale indeed. Alien's biggest strength is that, once revealed, the xenomorph is even worse than any viewer could've imagined. It's a true classic in every sense of the word. Whether Alien or Aliens is the better film is really more a matter of personal preference than it is a matter of which film is objectively better crafted, written, or produced.
DaCosta crafts an eerie cinematic world that is anchored by a deeply harrowing and sorrowful performance by Abdul-Mateen II. DaCosta's camerawork and eye for the unsettling create an entertaining new product. If you want to say “Candyman” five times, go ahead. I think I’ll stop at four just to play it safe.
