Transformers: The Last Knight

Tranformers: The Last Knight is a conundrum of excess and a lack of care. This is a corporate product made to sell toys and make money from product placement. It has no soul, there was no love for it from the people who made it, and watching it made me feel dead on the inside.

Wonder Woman

Folks, this movie is just so good. It’s everything a DC movie should be… bright, colorful, inspirational, and true to the characters we’ve been reading for years. We need more of this and less of asshole Superman. Less tattooed Joker and more pure characters.

Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant is a dumpster fire. A long, tedious, uninteresting and completely scareless movie that takes what should be simple survival horror and mixes it with psychological double-talk that is supposed to elevate it to philosophy, but really does nothing more than shove the movie’s head up its own ass so that it can sniff its own farts and convince itself that it’s some sort of designer perfume.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract

This is not a bad movie… not in the least bit, but it has been done before and it’s been done better than this. I’m sure that, if you’ve never watched Teen Titans, you’d find this a perfectly fine movie and have none of the qualms that I did, but to me, it’s like watching an imperfect clone of something that was already imperfect.

Ghost in the Shell

I’m not an idiot, I knew from the start that there would be changes between the anime and this movie, but what I don’t understand is why Hollywood will remake something without improving it in some way. Sure, you can argue that they were bringing Ghost in the Shell to a larger audience that perhaps haven’t heard of it before, but this version is so underwhelming, you almost have to ask why they even bothered with that.

Power Rangers

It’s an origin story and you all know how much I love superhero origin stories (I don’t). In this case, since it’s a story we haven’t seen properly told before, I gave it a pass for that, but it did fall into the superhero origin trap of holding off on all superhero action until the final act and thus, “Power Rangers” becomes more along of the lines of “Five Teenagers Bonding Featuring a Cameo by the Power Rangers.” It’s so frustrating that these movies do that to us so much.
