    Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    ★★★

    Why was 60% of Colin Firth's role in this movie running from robot dogs that seem to target him and only him specifically?

    This tried to amp things up that worked in the first film but flopped, a la Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but worse, in my opinion.

    It still has its moments but is extremely predictable and the action felt very meh for the most part.  What made the first one so great was its unpredictable yet familiar…

    "GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!!"

    One of the best movies of 2017?  Yes.  Amazing performance from Jennifer Lawrence?  Yes, and everyone else too.  Insanely controversial subject material and execution by Aronofsky?  Hell yes.

    ★★★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
