Rating History

Alien: Covenant
3 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Once again, in the service of using viral-cum-god-complex allegory to reveal a scant mystery, hilariously ill-trained "experts" vie against a cosmic horror whose fate becomes more perfunctory the closer it gets to its inevitability, the antithesis of the original film's surprising nature. Scott seems determined to remake A L I E N S.

Go
Go (1999)

The energy on display and lack of linear focus mirror the mindset of this cast of wayward tweenties, struggling through what must be a typical day before the next typical day.

Jumper
Jumper (2008)

Mainly inconsequential, and obviously a franchise jumping point (pun tintended and copyrighted), but its kineticism and approachable characters are enough to carry the viewer to a satisfying end. Also, it's a blast to see Mace Windu get his vicarious revenge on Anakin!

Big Hero 6
Big Hero 6 (2014)

Childish logic, limited mystery, timid yet managable stakes (in which no one really "dies" or, in the film's PG vernacular, "is gone"), an alarming absence of acrophobia (because 3D), and the need to science the shit out of everything, along with a plethora of Family Guy Awkward Pauses, cause this lightweight superheroic origin tale to sail as breezily and haphazardly as the deflatable vinyl balloon that is the robotic sidekick, Baymax. Strains of Disney's "STORY ACT STRUCTURE: INITIATED" coding might as well count as "Hero #7" of the empowered sextet.

Underworld
Underworld (2003)

½

Beckinsale lithely wages war with smash edits and cliches in the kind of serial-number-filing worldbuilding whose tropes and archetypes have been overdone many times better, which can only appeal to those who pay no heed to Lord of the Rings or Dune.
