|40 T5||Alien: Covenant (2017) - May 18, 2017
"Long-time Alien franchise fan. Unlike many, I liked Prometheus. This was okay, but I haven't seen Prometheus since it came out and I was left a bit confused as to how it all fits into the timeline and the intricacies of the plot, as Ridley Scott assumes you've memorized Prometheus going in. Also there is a twist that I saw coming miles and miles ahead which was more distracting than anything. Walking out of the theatre I enjoyed it. But just a few hours later...it was kind of forgettable."
|80 T9||The Handmaid's Tale (2017) - May 09, 2017
"The first two episodes...I was underwhelmed. But that THIRD episode was incredible! I think why it did it for me was because it helped link the future dystopia to the present day, and that allowed me to relate more with the dark future it presented. It's the best episode of anything I've seen so far this year and I can't wait for the next episode!"
|100 T10||Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - May 05, 2017
"Walking out I thought to myself: "How could that have been better?" I couldn't think of anything. I mean, if you're paying to see a PG-rated sci-fi action adventure comedy...what the hell more could you ask for?? I laughed quite a bit, and when I wasn't, I found I had a wide grin on my face. It highly emphasized the comedy. I wasn't the only film goer enjoying it, the whole theatre was eating it up! Not only do I think it's better than the original, it's one of my top-8 films of the last decade!"
|80 T9||Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992 (2017) - May 04, 2017
"Great documentary, my favourite movie of the year so far (along with "Logan"). Very informative, a lot of different perspectives and contexts. Very informational and affecting. It really explodes myths and your impressions of the events that are probably ingrained in your memory through whichever side of the racial divide you related to at the time."
|60 T7||The Lost City of Z (2016) - Apr 28, 2017
"I liked this film and it kept my interest until the very end. If the subject matter interests you (true story of an early 20th century British expedition to the jungles of the Amazon), then you very well might too. Just be advised that it's not an Indiana Jones action packed thriller. Even still, it doesn't barely crawl along like Scorsese's recent "Silence", for example. I'd gladly see it again and am now interested in checking out the book it's based on."
|60 T7||The Barbarian Invasions (2003) - Apr 24, 2017
"Enjoyable academic chit chat by a dying man and his friends."
|60 T7||Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) - Apr 20, 2017
"Pretty good. Some darkness to it which was appreciated for this older viewer. Enjoyable adventure film with plenty of action."
|60 T7||T2 Trainspotting (2017) - Apr 18, 2017
"Was good fun seeing the gang again, but started to stall and lose momentum in the final third."
|60 T7||A Fistful of Dollars (1964) - Apr 17, 2017
"There is some definite bad-assery to be found here. Despite the whirlwind of flying bullets and dying men, I found the lack of blood distracting and at times comical. Looking forward to the 2 sequels!"
|40 T5||Beauty and the Beast (2017) - Apr 04, 2017
"I didn't really like it, but then again I didn't enjoy the original as a kid either. Romance doesn't cut it for me. Just as the only thing I liked about "Les Miserables" was the "Master of the House" song, the only thing I really liked about this was the "No One ____s like Gaston" song. If there's a song, make it funny or I tune out. My biggest problem with the film other than that was Lumierre. He was a great character in the original, but in non-cartoon form he lacked expression."
