On the topic, Alien vs Aliens what's everyone's thoughts (the correct answer is Alien)
Alien, it is an absolute classic.

Saw The Mummy on Friday. A boring Tom Cruise flick that focuses on setting up Universal's Dark Universe instead of being even a passable standalone film.

I hope this whole shared universe trend dies off soon, I really do.

Also when Dr Jekyll shows up, and turns into Mr Hyde. I don't think I've seen an audience look so confused in my life.

So it's not as good as the Brendan Fraser one then.

Pretty much everything Tom Cruise is in is boring. The man himself always seems so full of himself and is a giant pain in the angel delight.

Why would you watch The Mummy. Looks awful from the trailers.

Also hey, most of the Mission Impossible films are decent.

They were certainly a mixed bag, the first was an interesting slow burn whodunnit, the second was total crap, the third was a fun actioner, the fourth was particularly memorable for it's Dubai stunt (and is my favourite of the series), and i found the fifth to lacking a certain something that i could never really put my finger on.

In preparation for it's sequel (The Golden Circle) Iv'e just seen Kingsman: The Secret Service.

It's like James Bonds earlier outings mixed with...Stormbreaker? I don't know how else to describe it, but it was fun and, especially in the final act, off the gooseberry fool wall.

Went to see Wonder Woman earlier, gooseberry fool brilliant tbh

Probably the best superhero film I've watched, nice concise opening which sets up the film's mythology without bogging it down, Diana's entry to the wider world was handled well (some funny moments but never descends into the kind of goofiness you get with Thor etc), kind of lulled in the middle but more than made up for by the no-man's land scene (ALL THE gooseberry fool HYPE) and basically everything else afterwards. The end fight gets a bit ridiculous but it's the good kind of ridiculous, I know other people haven't been fans of all the CGI but I was just enjoying the ride at that point.
One thing I liked was the moment of "it's not just the Germans, it's all of you!" after the gas attack, kind of wished they'd gone further with it since it's a nice change from the usual Germany = bad guys, Allies = good guys dichotomy.
Also liked Steve's death, knew it was curtains for him as soon as the romance element kicked in but it still made me care in the end.
So yeah overall fantastic film, definitely worth seeing even if DC's other efforts have put you off, if they do half as well with Justice League as they have with this then the DCEU might still be saved.

Just watched The Lego Batman Movie. What can I say, other than it's pure joy in film form, even more so than The Lego Movie. I don't think I've laughed as hard as I have done watching any other movie before!
