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.

The Fate Of The Furious

Watched it tonight, and it was actually pretty good surprisingly. I am not a huge fan of the series, but this one had a different tone to it obviously with Dom going rogue and that.

Watched Alien Convenant and enjoyed it more than Prometheus....

Still some glaring plot holes but found it better than the previous movie.....

But alas, it felt kinda like the same stuff over and over again - nothing beats the refreshing original movie of Alien and Aliens. Might be a little unfair but guess the bar was raised too high perhaps....

Tour De Pharmacy lol. This was a nice comedy, especially if you watch it with friends who are into bicycles.

Enjoyed Lau Ching-Wan in "Dealer/Healer”, a retelling of real life gangster/drug dealer/druggie turned reformed pastor helping drug addicts kick the habit. There was another movie based on the life of Chan Shun-Chi which I also recommend. Both are great films. The 90s version had the better soundtrack.

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.
I found it OK.
The same formula was used in other movies, though.

whiplash. if i had just read the description i would have skipped it. the 94% score on RT convinced me to check it out. definitely lived up to it's billing. must see if you haven't caught it yet.

The Killing



What an awesome movie!
I couldn't believe that a film made in the 50s was so gripping and intense - even by today's standards.
This is the first film Kubrick wrote, and for fans of suspenseful, intricate and smart crime movies, I highly recommend this.

Oh and for lovers of Terminator 2, you'll notice one scene in particular that Cameron took from this classic.

Transformers The Last Knight, pretty good. Good to see some characters from previous films.
