In another world
Wonder Woman.
A bit slow in some parts IMO. I guess I was tired.

DC is trying to come up with their own Marvel-esque intro ha!

Belko Experiment



Battle Royale meets Office Space in b-movie format.
Bloody, cheesy and entertaining. Nothing that will go down in any top 10 list, but mindless fun.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

If you enjoy Guy Ritchie style of filming, then you'll enjoy this one (I hope!).

I found it entertaining - I like the storytelling format, action was good, Charlie Hunnam was good as Arthur and Jude Law was good as the evil uncle.....

7/10 - soundtrack that went with the film was nice too!

The Autopsy of Jane Doe
Yup, it's not bad. Hard to find decent horror (i.e. REAL horror=supernatural stuff, not slasher-gore crap pretending to be 'horror' nonsense) nowadays.

King Arthur was actually very enjoyable and it gave another pov of the fable. If you ever studied a film course you'd appreciate it especially the camera work.

Alien Covenant was good even though i hate those creatures.

Lost City of Z was exceptional if you are a historian like me, i's a historical documentary/drama.

Vampire Cleanup Department.
Haven't seen a decent Chinese vampire flick in years. And they add in a very cute Lin Ming-Chen in the mix.

I don't get people who hated the Alien the Covenant. I was a great movie and a good continuation of Prometheous! On IMDB it seems at least half of the reviewers gave it 1-star. They either didn't watch it, or just don't have any brains to think. These last 2 Alien movies are not horror. They are sci-fi thrillers and as such They were both simply amazing, providing so much background info on how it all began

Alien - 8/10
Mummy - 6.7/10 - not bad, just an action movie and better than the previous one which made me walk away as it was boring!
Transformers 6.9/10 - Meh, some good action with pop corn. Not the best of them, but worth the $7 I paid to sit in a reclined leather sofa for 2.5 hours @ Imagine Cinemas lol
Wonder Woman - 7.6/10 - Nice,but I am not into female superheroes...
King Arthur - 10/10 Wow, so much action, great story.
Power Rangers - lol... 6.5/10 - I am not understanding the hate for this movie. Did those people watch the tv show??!! The TV show was cheesy. There was soooo much cheese that a cheese factory would be proud lol. The movie was better than the TV show. I grew up watching the dumb Power Rangers tv show and did not have a lot of expectations. It was better than the show!
Security - 6.7/10 Good little action movie with Mr. Banderas. Wouldn't watch it twice,but a nice 1-time movie.

Based on your ratings for those films, it looks like I'm really going to hate Alien Covenant. Anyone who thinks transformers was that good likely doesn't have the same criteria in films as I do.

Well, The difference between me and possibly you are expectations. When I go to see a comedy - I expect to laugh. When I go see an action movie, I expect to see fights or shootings. When I want to see a thriller, I expect to be on the edge. Unfortunately, a lot of people when they want to see an action movie, they expect a script to win an Oscar, they expect the best actors money can buy and billions spend on budget, a great comedy script and all that. I don't call that all reasonable expectations.

Transformers was a sold movie for action. I got exactly what I wanted from it - firefight + some story to go along with it. The 3.1 points loss would go directly to story.

But yes, if you didn't like Prometheus, you will not like the Alien as it is just a continuation of it and many expected nonstop horror killings and it's not what it was designed to do. The movie is amazing,but requires some thinking and a lot of people for some reason don't want to do that...
ps. I didn't like the original Alien movies. I found them pointless, predictable and just stupid.
