    The Space Between Us (2017)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3922818/



    A good premise wasted!

    On the first manned mission to colonize Mars, 2 months into the journey, the mission commander discovers she is pregnant.

    She gives birth and the baby grows up on Mars.

    When he turns 16 years old, he wants to go to Earth to see where he came from.

    If you can look past the plot holes and scientific goofs that were in the movie up to now, you can still enjoy this movie but no, because the screenwriters decided to turn it into a predictable cliched and stupid teenage love story, not even a good one at that.

    This movie should be retitled to The Space Between The Ears of the idiots who wrote and produced this movie because that's all there is there and not one brain among them.

    Want to know how bad this film is? To rate this movie Mediocre is being generous.

    Diabolique (1996)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116095/



    Predictable, dreadful, devoid of any life and soul, boring, totally unsuspenseful and unthrilling.

    Appearance wise, Sharon Stone looks like a drug junkie. She also comes across the screen as she doesn't want to be in this film but hey, a paycheck is a paycheck, right?

    The other female lead, critically acclaimed French actress Isabelle Adjani looks like a fish out of the water trying to recite her English language speaking lines - maybe they should had gotten a French actress who have had more experience in English speaking roles prior to this film.

    The pacing was so slow! Oh so so very slow, you'd think you aged 10 years by the time you've finish watching this very painful remake of the 1955 French psychological thriller masterpiece!!

    Do yourself a favor and stick with the original:

    The Secret Of My Succe$s (1987)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093936/

    In my opinion, this movie is one of three films that quintessentially portrayed the 1980's and defined and created the big worldwide financial mess we are still in, 30 years later: greed, big corporation, over spending, the love of the excess, Reaganomics.

    The other 2 films are Wall Street and Working Girl.

    Helen Slater is incredibly beautiful in this film. It's too bad her attempt at creating a big screen celluloid Super Girl franchise failed.

    Becoming Bond (2017)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6110504/

    *

    I have always wondered where the Bond films will be today if Lazenby did his 7 films, including On Her Majesty's Secret Service (OHMSS), and Sir Roger Moore never did Bond.

    Moore would had been too old by the time Lazenby finished his 7 pictures run around the early 80's.

    Will Dalton had more than 2 films if he had taken over the role sooner than 1987 and not end up being compared to Moore?

    OHMSS is still IMO one of the Best Bond films ever made and I know I am not the only one who think so.

    At the end, the reason Mr. Lazenby gave for turning down a 7 Bond films deal was not any of the reasons we've heard over the years: he didn't get along with Broccoli and Saltzman or he was fired or his agent advised him wrong and told him to quit the role after only one film (that's written on WIKI) or that he was just a dumb ass or a fool.

    The reason he gave was he wanted to live his life by his own expectations: not by someone else's and not by how people perceived him. He wanted to live his life as George Lazenby and not as a fictional character named James Bond.

    Unfortunately the one Bond film was also the cause of him losing out on a life with his first and only one true love: Belinda Fingleton.

    That part of the movie was bittersweet and sad at the same time.

    Nevertheless, even if Lazenby did miss out on fame and fortune, he said he was happy with his decision and his life still turned out well: he got married twice, had kids and he didn't have to deal with his life being put under a microscope and the public scrutiny of Becoming Bond.

    Crossplot (1969)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064193/



    An modeling agency talent scout (Roger Moore) unwittingly gets involved with a girl on the lam from a group of dangerous killers after she overhears an assassination plot.



    Made 4 years before Moore stars in his first James Bond film, Crossplot plays out like an over-long The Saint Episode mixed with a movie featuring a James Bond wannabe character.

    Free Fire (2016)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4158096/



    Boston, 1978. In an abandoned factory, several IRA members meet a group of Americans to buy machine guns that they plan to ship back to Ireland to use against the British.

    Easy Peasy!! What could go wrong, right?

    There is a disagreement and misunderstanding over something, everyone is carrying a gun, everyone is on macho adrenaline rush.

    Someone pulls a gun first and shoots another.

    Then the whole thing turns into a big shootout with everyone shooting at everyone else.

    Oh, there is a woman too. She came in with the buyers.

    So what's wrong with this movie?

    Everything!!

    It's a waste of talent: Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Noah Taylor, Michael Smiley, etc.

    The producers could had saved some money and gotten a bunch of nameless actors because all that talent couldn't save this movie from it's paper thin plot, cardboard characters, and moronic dialogue.

    There was a few instances where I wanted to shoot all the characters myself just to see the movie end:

    at only 1 hour and 30 minutes running time, it was still 40 minutes too long. That is how tedious it was to watch this.

    Wonder Woman (2017)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0451279/




    Now this is how a movie adaptation of a Superhero[ine] comic book series should be!

    Not that repetitive junk we have been subjected to the past 10+ years: Dark Knight Trilogy, Captain America, Avengers, Iron Man, Non Fantastic Four, X-Men, etc etc

    Gal Gadot is beautiful, intelligent, charismatic and she has a strong on screen presence and persona.

    She TRULY IS Wonder Woman!!


    I can't think of any other actresses working right now that could had been a better choice than Gal Gadot.

    I wish her a long and prosperous movie career as both Wonder Woman and any other roles she chooses to take in the future and I hope she will never become a victim of typecasting.

    Prime Risk (1985)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087942/





    This movie just looks dumb now - the girl uses an ATARI 400 or 800 something to hack an ATM.

    I am sure that was high tech in 1985 but not now.

    The girl, actress Toni Hudson, is cute!

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0399981/



    Back during the early to mid 80's when I was in my teens to my early 20's, I watched just about every movie and kept up with every cute actress but I've never heard of Toni.

    The Eiger Sanction (1975)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072926/



    In this long forgotten thriller about a government assassin called back out of retirement to do one final job, Clint Eastwood directs, stars and performs his own white-knuckle mountain climbing scenes and stunts including really hanging over a 4,000 feet precipice (no SFX, no CGI, no Blue and Green screens), cutting his main rope and dropping a 1,000 feet before being held by a second rope.



    Featuring a great cast including George Kennedy, Jack Cassidy, Thayer David, Gregory Walcott, and Vonetta McGee and a rousing thrilling score by legendary composer John Williams, this is one chiller that you shouldn't miss!

    K-19: The Widowmaker (2002)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0267626/



    Depiction of the events of the K-19 Soviet Submarine near nuclear reactor meltdown disaster of July 1961, directed by Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty.

    The entire crew was sworn to secrecy for 28 years after the accident and the subsequent new crews that served on it afterward from 1961 until 1990 were never told of the prior near nuclear disaster that happened on the submarine.

    The K-19 was hurried through construction and commission at the time to keep up with the American technological advances in nuclear Submarines warfare.

    Over 10 construction workers died during its construction and the K-19 was considered cursed right from the beginning when during its christening, the champagne bottle thrown against its hull by a Man instead of a Woman, failed to break.

    It was also sent on its first operational mission with minimum sea trials, no back up cooling system to the on board Nuclear reactor, no suitable radiation suits and no anti radiation drugs for the crew.

    Them Russians sure like to cut corners and do everything the hard way, don't they - as long as it's Duty and Party and the Motherland!

    I see that Duty and Motherland and Party sure helped them win the Cold War, NOT!

    King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1972591/



    $175 million to make plus $100 million in total marketing costs and a total domestic and worldwide box office of $137 million giving it a projected loss of about $150 million.

    This was supposed to be the first of 6 King Arthur films by Guy Ritchie and Thank the maker that won't happen now.

    This film was a mess. No!! Let me rephrase that!!

    This film was a Hot Mess!

    Urban Dictionary defines Hot Mess as:

    A state of disarray so chaotic that it's dizzying to look at. A mess that is beyond the normal range of disarray. A Hot Mess distinguishes itself from an above-average train wreck. Train Wreck is defined as: a total ducking disaster ...the kind that makes you want to shake your head.
    Rotten Tomatoes gave it 28% out of 202 votes and it's easy to see why:

    the main reason this movie sucks is because it has no identity.

    It wants to be a medieval movie, it wants to be a sword and sorcery movie, it wants to be a fantasy movie, it wants to be a Matrix movie, it wants to be a Lord of the Rings movie, it wants to be every movie ever made in the past 17 years since Gladiator and it just doesn't achieve one nor the other.

    In other words it doesn't know what it wants to be and that's what makes it such a big Sucking Hot Mess of a movie!!

    Alien: Covenant (2017)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2316204/



    Alien: Covenant is set 10 years after the events of Prometheus - which in itself is about 30 some odd years before the events of Alien 1979.

    Here is my take on this latest Alien movie:

    1. It doesn't answer some of the questions left unanswered in Prometheus.
    2. It doesn't bring much new to the Alien Franchise or give it much of a push in a new direction, even if this film is considered part of the Alien Prequel Series and not part of the Alien Film Series that started in 1979 with Alien.
    3. Ridley Scott said there will be 2 more entries in this Alien Prequel Series before it comes full circle to connect with Alien 1979.
    4. Some of the scenes in Alien: Covenant felt rehashed from the other 4 Alien films and from Prometheus.
    5. The ending of Alien: Covenant left it open.

    Will the next Alien film continue from where Covenant ended or it will jump many years again? Guess we won't know until 2019.

    4/5

    p.s.

    A Final Thought:

    The USCSS Prometheus in Prometheus, The USCSS Covenant in Alien: Covenant, the USCSS Nostromo in Alien 1979, they are all owned by Weyland-Yutani Corporation.

    Same corporation seen in the events before Prometheus in Alien Vs. Predator and Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem.

    Now as I've said above, there are 30 odd years between the events of Prometheus and Alien 1979 with 2 more films to come showing more events during those 30 years.

    Now you'd think by Alien 1979, people will know not to work for Weyland-Yutani.

    If you work for Weyland-Yutani, you are signing your own death execution.

    The Beguiled (1971)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066819/



    From IMDB Trivia:

    Director Don Siegel said that the film was commercially a failure because Universal Studios released it with advertisements that suggested it was an action movie. And the result disappointed the die-hard fans of Clint Eastwood's usual films. Siegel also said that this film should have been shown in local theaters in NYC, and then could have probably been a moderate success instead of a total failure at the box office.
    This is a good movie with good acting from Eastwood and from all the actresses, including the youngest one who was 12 at the time.

    I will have to assume this film's commercial box office failure caused it to be overlooked and passed on at the Academy Awards of 1972.

    The stars in this film deserved to be nominated.

    Eastwood is wounded Union soldier, John McBurney, who is saved by an all girls school headmistress and her students.

    Everyone is creepy in here: Eastwood character is trying to charm everyone at the all girls school, including the youngest one who was 13.

    WTF?

    There are even 2 scenes where he tells the 13 year old girl that she is old enough to be kissed and he kisses her on her mouth.

    WTF AGAIN????

    All the girls are competing with each other to get McBurney's attention and affection, including the 13 year old one.

    TRIPLE WTF???????

    Then there is the plot twist and the subsequent ending which I won't give away:

    4/5

    p.s.

    I doubt the new version by Sofia Coppola will be this risque considering the attitude of the world today regarding sex and anything out of the ordinary is not PC.

    The Mummy (2017)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2345759/

    *

    A Mummy movie this is not!

    The Brendan Fraser's Mummy films were Mummy movies.

    This could had been just another Mission Impossible movie with Ethan Hunt playing a weekend Tomb Raider searching for long lost artifacts and fighting ancient curses.

    Furthermore, both actresses were wasted. Once again as always in any film starring Tom Cruise, the focus is on him.

    They left the ending open for a sequel.....

    .....Please Don't!

    Once is painful enough!!
