8 out of the 10 episodes of the upcoming X-Files season will be stand-alones?! That's excellent news because the mythology episodes from last season were just terrible.

Not going to lie but a movie titled Cowboy Ninja Viking starring Chris Pratt as an assassin who masters all of the skills referenced in the title is probably going to be my favorite flick ever haha

Still trying to recover from my mind being blown for 3 hours by Hans Zimmer & his band/orchestra on Sunday. Btw, forgot how batshit insane/epically awesome that Amazing Spider-Man 2 score was

I still have goosebumps from The Lion King portion of the show. Also, CRIMSON TIDE!

If you're planning on establishing a shared cinematic universe (btw, please don't. Enough already. I'm looking at you Dark Universe and rumored James Bond universe), please use Iron Man and not Iron Man 2 as your influence. Have a really solid stand-alone narrative story that establishes a character and then near the end (or in the credits), slip in a team-up scene à la ''Nick Fury in Tony Stark'S house''. Don't shoe-horn it in the middle of a movie and have it take over the plot for the remainder of the movie like in tHe Mummy.

Had a double-feature at the multiplex this weekend. First, really enjoyed Spider-Man: Homecoming. Afterwards..The Mummy happened. I was surprisingly really liking it for the first hour. Then, Russel crowe showed up and this movie just went off the rails. Too many typed of movies (horror, action/adventure, comedy) mixed together badly and a desperately forcefed ''shared unvierse'' plot-line. Add to it some bad gc and some annoying characters and you get this terribly underwhelming & disapointing mess of a bad movie. It's a shame really because if you remove the dreadful Jekyll/Hyde as Nick Fury part of the movie, you could've had a really solid globe-trotting action-adventure franchise for Cruise. Ah, well. Good luck, Dark Universe. You'll need it

James "Wolverine" Howlett would approach of your meal complementing his movie.

Alien: Covenant was...decent. I dug (most of) the xenomorphs & the look/design of the movie but it suffers from the same problems as Prometheus: a stacked cast that is grossly underused by playing boring/bland characters, said characters making truly idiotic decisions & a mythology/origin story that is way too convoluted & got out of hand of the screenwriters/creators (similar to what happened in the later seasons of X-Files). JohnLocke, I totally get what you mean with the ''midichlorians scene in Phantom Menace'' comparison. Also, some of the David/Walter scenes were just downright annoyingly pretentious. That being said, it had a really good pace & kept me entertained for the entire 2 hours. Wasn't as bad a lot of people said but wasn't as good as a lot of people said. Just kind of ok.

Alien: Covenant does suffer from plot holes, predictable developments, and stupid moments. However, as you indicate, there are things to like in the movie too.

The pacing was great and I was never once bored (the opening 40'minutes or so were fantastic and I was all on board before it started falling apart). It's definitely not a HORRIBLE movie and there are a lot of things to like (the david themes, creationism and the sci-fi elements) but maaaaan the weaker elements are BAD. The finale seemed rushed and half assed, the mythology stuff was absurd (now you get my midichlorian comparison haha) and the characters were awful. I mean completely forgettable and even dumber than you'd imagine (don't even get me started on how the face hugger gets its host...).

It's just super frustrating because the stuff I was most excited to see (mainly the xenomorph and how the ending of Prometheus tied in) were maybe the weakest elements and such a letdown. Overall it's between a 5 and a 6 for me.

Yeah, the final battle just seemed WAY too easy/lazy. No real challenge/threat seemed apparent. The plan of attack just pretty much worked with very few obstacles.

The facehugger scene will probably replace the ''why didn't he just run slightly to the left to avoid the giant wheel'' sequence in Prometheus as dumbest character moment in these movies haha

I was really looking forward to this one but have to give it a soft 6. Maybe it'll get better with additional viewings later on

Got some birthday money so blind-bought Logan (still don't get how I missed this in theaters) AND Cowboy Bebop, which I'm very excited to check out. My girlfriend's a huge fan of it and has been telling me to watch it ever since Legend of Korra finished airing.

Haha I was hoping to get your attention because I had a CB related question: is the movie worth checking out? Does it need to be watched before or after the series?

Weapon X
Weapon X at 06:04 PM May 23

The fun thing about the series is that most episodes can be viewed independently of each other, and the movie is very similar. It can be used either as a primer or even a post-finale epilogue, but chronologically it takes place after episode 22 ("Cowboy Funk") and there are specific parallels between the two despite the vastly different tones.

Day off here in Canada so I'll take advantage of it with a trip to the multiplex to check out Alien: Covenant!

Oh man brotha I really hope you like it more than I did. The first 40 minutes really hooked me but then it just falls apart before a shit show of a finale with no tension or patience. At its core there's some really interesting stuff being said but it's surrounded by a bunch of underwhelming aspects.

ENJOY IT THO. PLEASE LIKE IT MORE THAN ME. haha

There are only 3 episodes of The Leftovers left & I have no freakin clue as to what is going to happen and I'm 100% ok with that!
ericodarko updated his STATUS: 4 months ago

The X-Files is coming back for a 10-episode run! Yeah, the last ''season'' was a bit of a letdown (mainly the Chris Carter penned episodes) but ten episodes is perfect. Gives it more room to bring back beloved writers and gives the mythology a little more room to breathe...because it definitely needs it at this point haha!
ericodarko updated his STATUS: 5 months ago

Got back into HBO's The Leftovers since season is replaying before season 3 starts and, after two episodes, I'm glad I jumped back in.
