So, I caught this on Netflix last weekend. I had been wanting to watch this for some time and finally I had the chance. This was such a good movie and on every level. Excellent story, excellent acting and fantastic directing. This was the "pick-me-up" I needed to reignite my faith in movies after watching the disappointing and expensive Valerian at the theater a few weeks back. Thank you Weinsteins for this terrific movie.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Where do I begin. I went to see it last night and although I was not bored or looking at my watch for the over 2 hours of impressive sets and special effects, I came away a bit empty. It was like eating rice cakes. Flavorless, tasteless and having the texture of styrofoam. This is nowhere as good as "The Fifth Element", which was a mind-blowing spectacle that broke all kinds of barriers for the sci-fi genre. Think of this as a lite, a very lite version of that movie from 20 years ago. Remember that Wendy's commercial from the 1980's - Where's the beef?

Much better than I thought it would be. I was a teenage kid when Lynda Carter starred as the original Wonder Woman back in the mid 70s. I wasn't planning on seeing this, because for me it was always Lynda Carter, but my wife dragged me out to see it and I'm glad I did. The story was very good as were the choreographed fight sequences. Chris Pine is really good, too as are all the Amazon women. Definitely worth the cost of admission.

Alien: Covenant

This movie should have been titled "David's Revenge". It starts with him and it ends with him. I had some pretty high expectations after being disappointed by Prometheus, but I guess I set myself up for a letdown. This movie is okay and as far as meatfest gore it gets a passing grade. There just isn't much development here and the best parts of the movie are the tete-a-tete between Walter and David. There are a few disturbing scenes in the movies, so I would advise taking children under 10. Genocide is not a topic for very, young minds.
