  • Alien: Resurrection

    Alien: Resurrection 1997

    ★★★★ Added

    Compared to Alien 3 this looks like the Godfather. Compared to Aliens this is like the Grease sequel.
    As a standalone it's perfectly ok, adequate, fun, fine. It was always going to suffer by the inevitable comparison of the first two movies.
    The third best in the series, with Alien and Aliens being several leagues above the others. Good effort Joss Whedon, who managed to offer something different to the saga.

    Take Shelter 2011

    ★★½ Watched 21 Apr, 2016

    This film is slow. Michael Shannon not only displays he is limited to just three faces in his acting arsenal:
    1. Miserable
    2. Miserable and teary eyed
    3. Miserable and enraged
    but he also manages to take three times longer than any normal person to deliver a line. Get on with it.

    A.K.A - Batman ft. Superman: The Rush to Justice League

    So this was the second time seeing this. I wanted to wait to let my mind process the film. I must say the first experience wasn't too great. I wasn't really paying attention for the last 30 minutes as I was too angry from the fight scene. I came out of that with a ★★

    The second showing was actually better ★★★
    A few of the set-ups (Lex Luthor especially)…
