    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★

    “This is not going to go the way you think!”

    You were right, Luke.  It didn’t.

    I’m just gonna be straight up, I thought this movie was just pretty alright. Maybe my expectations were too high (they were astronomically high) but I just wasn’t a huge fan of this movie. Sure, there were quite a few curveballs so I was kept on my toes about what was gonna happen next, but that doesn’t automatically create a great movie. For every…

    ★★★★★

    This science-fiction epic just might provide a better glimpse into humanity than any character-driven story could.

    The pacing was extremely slow.  Much too slow.  The CGI was passable at best, but usually pretty awful, which is simply inexcusable, especially…

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★½

    "Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair."

    This was a very good science fiction film.  It suffered from the same slow pacing in the first act as did the original Alien, but quickly picked up during the second act and culminated well in the final act.  I can say with complete certainty that you need to have seen Prometheus to fully enjoy this movie.  Which is to be expected, as Ridley Scott has already said many times that Covenant
