I thought Covenant was a great movie, but at best a so-so addition to the Alien universe.

I miss the likes of Alien and Aliens, but those are also two of the best sci-fi movies in existence so I've accepted that they'll never hit those highs again.

Michael Fassbender is an incredible actor, and he did not disappoint in Covenant.

Concur. 

There are 3 more planned for the Alien franchise with Scott directing with a loop back to the original 1979 Alien movie, linking Prometheus, Covenant, .... to Alien.  

Looking forward to that and to pay homage to the original, the trailer for the 1979 Alien...

Prometheus, Covenant, 3 more to follow with a lead in to Alien.  So far, so good.

First two were entertaining, but not watered down and insulting.  Given modern CGI, it's plain to see that the only thing that could fuck it all up is shitty middle school writing and a raging merchandising boner.  Gawddayum I really wish Lucas would have sold Star Wars to Disney BEFORE that Roger Rabbit Phantom Menace abortion got started.

Watched War Machine on Netflix.  

It was painfully familiar while being totally fake.  Worth my time.

Baywatch was absolutely hilarious. It didn't take itself seriously at all, and I thought everyone in the movie played their part well. If you're going to see it expecting a developed plot or serious movie, save your money. It also helped that Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach (who are top tier to begin with) are in the Baywatch standard-issue uniforms the whole time.

Watched it last night.  Wasn't as impressed with it, although I thought Farmer Ted did a good job in his role...

Do not see The Mummy. I wasn't terribly impressed by the trailer, but I followed the wife to it skeptically. The first 20 minutes is military-centric and is so ridiculously implausible that it ruined the rest of the movie. F- , zero points, I want my money back.

The Mummy without Brendan Fraser? WTF were they thinking?

not a movie BUT did anyone see the new documentary on Amelia Earhart?  It featured former fighter pilot/author Dan Hampton. I thought it was pretty good - I always take history channel documentaries with a grain of salt though.

If anybody was considering, stay away from the Beguiled. The previews made it out to be a 19th century Misery-esque horror movie. It turned to be a mind numbingly boring steaming pile of shit with no point and zero redeeming qualities. The movie ended with a cut to black and I literally yelled out loud, "Are you ing kidding me?!"

The dick-in-the-popcorn technique works best if she's into the movie.

Who's got the skinny on Dunkirk?

Dunkirk is good.  Character development and dialogue are pretty lacking, but the tension is amazingly well done.
Definitely worth watching on a big screen.
