The effects are great, the gore is well done, and those goddamn face huggers are still suckering people in long after they should know better. Alien: Covenant is a well-shot thriller for a franchise that is waiting for Young CGI Ripley to conclude Riley Scott’s work.
Assassin’s Creed is a pure waste in every sense of the word. They waste an entire video game franchise, they waste an arsenal of heavyweight actors by giving them nothing to work with, they waste 125 million dollars paying all these people to be in the movie, and they waste one actually decent chase/action sequence on this poorly written junk.
X-Men: Apocalypse is a jumbled mess of a movie where you will find yourself questioning many creative decisions that went into this film. Characters motivations are pretty poorly explained or are not explained at all. The film doesn’t even bother to explain how the powers of the heroes and the villains make a lick of sense.
