Thanks for the trailer to The Irishman, @Stuart.T
Don't know how I missed it.

John Wick 3: 6/10

I liked it but it felt rushed and cobbled together.

Finally got around to watching Alien: Covenant. I found it less shit than I feared and than others reported. Not great by any means, a bit by the numbers, but a nice continuation of the origin story and decent amalgamation of elements from both Prometheus and the the OG movies.

It was definitely better than Prometheus which isn’t saying much. My biggest complaint was the lack of character development. With the original films you connected with the characters. With Prometheus and Covenant Ridley created disposable characters that you didn’t care for. I’m nitpicking though as I’m prone to do with the Alien franchise

TOY STORY 4: 38' in. Not looking forward to the inevitable kick in the stomach that's about to follow...

Rewatched Starship Troopers and man, this film has not aged well. And it goes without saying that the parallels to Aliens are pretty bad.

I know what you mean, luckily it is still funny and effective as satire.

I watched Aladdin last night, expecting to hate it. It was not bad overall, with some genuinely good Bollywood influenced visuals, though I would not recommend going out of your way to see it.

Pet Semetary remake: meh

I'm over films that rely on jump scares. Very lazy storytelling imo

Starship Troopers is an excellent novel though.

Really enjoyed Lincoln Lawyer.
Think it, be it.

Brightburn: 7/10

For a low budget horror/hero film it's not that bad. I know some of you loathe the superhero genre but this one takes already established themes and flips them. They didn't hold back on the gore either. There were some loose plot holes that I could dissect but overall it was well done imo.

I dislike horror movies, so I never watched it, but I saw a trailer and thought it was an interesting premise.  Good to hear it worked, more or less.

Midsommar;  holy fuck what did I just watch (in a good way)....super intriguing, disturbing, uncomfortable, and one of the most unique movies I've ever seen.  Can feel a bit slow in the beginning and it's not exactly a short movie but stick with it till the end. I highly recommend. You may not know whether you actually liked it or not when it's over but it's an experience.

Just rewatched green book yesterday. Wow. One of my favourites this year.

Joker. Great. Watched it twice.

Looking forward to Terminator: Dark Fate. I am not expecting much. Hoping for a nice cinema evening with lot´s of action and one of my favourite childhood stars. Get to the choppah!!!
