    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★½

    Overall, a pretty great movie with some glaring faults. First, the good: the last fourty minutes or so are a bloodbath that will not be soon forgotten. Also, acting was spot on with Fassbender making a wonderful cyborg. But, that being said, Alien: Covenant took way too long to get started, and the first two acts dragged on way too long with unnecessary extra story. My only other complaint is that Ridley got a little too crazy with the obvious CGI.

    Overall, a great movie but maybe wait for the cheap seats or blu-ray release.

    ★★½

    Pretty good aesthetically. But not much beyond that. The entire documentary just presents the opinions of actors trying out for parts in a dramatization of JonBenet Ramsey's murder. No facts are presented.

    The point of a documentary is to inform, and I learned nothing from this.

    If you want to watch a really pretty documentary/dramatization with no real substance, then look no further. You found it.

    Suicide Squad

    ★★★

    An extremely well shot and stylized movie that lacks in the plot and editing departments. My biggest issue with Suicide Squad is that it unfolds like an unhinged fan's super-edit of three other DC movies. The story has three distinct arcs that don't seem to mesh very well. The first being the Suicide Squad itself, the second is Harley Quinn and Joker's relationship, and the third being The Enchantress and Dr' Moone's storyline. I'm pretty sure that David Ayer filmed…

    House of 1000 Corpses

    ★★★★★

    A perfect 70s style horror flick! Rob Zombie's best film to date in my opinion. Reminicient of Texas Chainsaw Massacre in style (not subject matter). Definitely one of my favorite movies. I honestly see no way to improve this masterpiece of horror film. Also, hands down one of the best special features ever (Tiny Fucked a Stump)!
