Movie Review: Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant is a wonderfully balanced blend of science fiction and horror, with intelligent dialogue and plenty of medicinal CG for the sci-fi soul. (Alien drool not included.) Watched Alien: Covenant last night and was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I've never been a huge fan of the franchise in general, although I did see Prometheus in theatres and remember liking it, albeit, not as much as I liked Alien: Covenant.

The Survivor: A Tale From The Nearscape: a sci-fi indie short film set in a post-apocalyptic future where a young boy with a twisted father and ailing mother faces dystopian dangers to retrieve much needed supplies for his family. The Good: Impressive cinematography, sound, lighting, colors, music, backdrops, decor, props, CG, so on and so forth, for a 12-minute-long indie science fiction production. The Bad: Disregarding that which can be regarded as trivial, such as elements that could have been better with fewer budgetary restrictions, more believeable dialogue/reciting of that dialogue, or better quality acting during non-integral scenes, the biggest mark that was missed was the film's e

As an author living in this digital age, Search Engines and Amazon can be a few of your best friends. Digital advertising for indie authors can seem especially daunting, but today, I'm going to share some awesome tips with you that will hopefully remove that shroud of intimidation, and arm you with the confidence you need to build your very own search engine or amazon marketing services campaign.
