I watched this with my wife last night and she liked it! I think all things Wolverine was best in an R format.

Watched "Nocturnal Animals" last night, I liked it. Not horror, but dark noir with a few heady Lynchian moments.

Not sure if the new Alien met Fox's expectations or not. But I don't think it's doing as bad as that article states. I love the adjectives the author uses, "brutal", "burned", "sunk", "punished." Lol.

it's way too close to 'Monty Python and The Holy Grail'. Good actors being made to look like bad actors. At the risk of being struck by lightning, Guy Ritchie's King Arthur blows Excalibur out of the water, it's more entertaining and kicks way more ass.
THO is shocked. Shocked! Excalibur is quality 80's cheese. And it's hard to beat 80's cheese. I'm in a summer blockbuster pool where we pick the top 20 movies of the summer. I didn't pick King Arthur to be in the top 20. Good thing, cuz it's tanking faster than Lancelot trying to tread water in full armor. Now go wax THO's horns. That's your penance. Wax on, wax off.

More of an adventure type movie but the monsters were cool. Rent The Great Wall for a bit of fun and sonic indulgence!

THO: Don't touch the horns. (Doing his best/worst Godfather impression).. I respect your loyalty and I know you respect mine but do not touch the horns. You may wonder, you may ponder, but do not touch the horns..

I'm curious about Ritchie's Arthur, though it's hard for me to imagine it being better than Excalibur or Holy Grail. Maybe it'll be another sleeper hit on home vid like The Great Wall?

Found this over on The Atlantic website, I mostly agree with author. Read it and see what you think.

Why Prometheus Deserves to Be Taken Seriously

Ridley Scott’s last sci-fi epic was called an unsatisfying Alien prequel on release, but it’s far smarter, and bleaker, than many might remember.
