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!

Baby Driver - superb, fantastic, awesome. Edgar Wright has done it again, making another great, action packed and funny film that everyone has to see.

And of course, the soundtrack is excellent, intricately blended with sound and image to create a truly rhythmic film that I tapped my feet along with it.

The only negative I would say is that it certainly isn't as laugh-out-loud as Wright's other films. In comparison to, say, the Cornetto Trilogy, those films are outright goofy compared to Baby Driver, but that no means detracts from the film's own humour, style and charm.

I smiled nonstop throughout, and everyone should definitely see it.

Agreed, it's brilliant. Saw it last night knowing very little about it, other than it being Edgar Wright. Was not disappointed.

Spider-Man Homecoming: Another great, solid Marvel movie and a good comeback for the character after the short and not very good Amazing Spider-Man films. Wonderful humour, fantastic performances, and a nice little coming-of-age story, if a little underdeveloped. Tom Holland embodies the teenage Peter Parker dealing with school and his superpowers a kid his age would, he is close to perfect. Michael Keaton as the Vulture is also a brilliant casting choice, as he really becomes quite a threatening scary dude.

Here's the thing though: I don't feel it pushes through past the solid, all-round type of Marvel movie. It certainly sets itself apart from the likes of the Iron Man, Captain America and Thor movies, but there's still something that just doesn't really make it stand out (which I can't quite put my finger on). Not like how Ant-Man and Doctor Strange did at least.

Plus, and this may be slight nostalgia and the fact that it was really the first successful Marvel film, the first Sam Raimi Spider-Man still holds first ranking in terms of all Spider-Man movies. Homecoming is still great, but I don't think it can quite beat the first big film iteration.

Just saw it also - really enjoyed it. My main complaint is that I don't think the final fight is that great - I didn't have a clue what was going on half the the time. Other than that a really enjoyable film, and I think Tom Holland is really perfect as Spiderman. The younger age setting served the film well also.
Ever since joining the original ONM I've been a huge Nintendo fan (specifically Zelda) and am looking forward to some great discussions. I was previously known as Lego Master

Best Spiderman film in ages. One of the funniest films I've seen for a while too, they really went all out on the humour for it and I thought it was all for the better. Especially the interactions between Peter and "Karen".
Also the Vulture turning out to be the father of the girl Peter was dating was a nice twist
Hopefully Marvel Studios will do future Spiderman films although Peter turning down the invitation to join the Avengers at the end of the film makes me doubt he would appear in an Avengers 3 film

He's already confirmed to be in Infinity War. There's a video marking the start of filming featuring Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr, and Chris Pratt.

Saw Wonder Woman on Friday. The final fight was utter pants, but it was still a great film, overall.

In related news, I am now in love with Gal Gadot.

Spider-Man Homecoming was very fun and had a good villain along with a highly realistic feeling of New York and high school, I think the first 2 Raimi films were better but still enjoyed it a lot.

Just got home from seeing Baby Driver and it really was something else, tonnes of action combined with a great soundtrack while also having a lot of real substance to it. Love it, best movie of 2017 so far and I think I like it more than Kingsman.

Gonna see War for the Planet of the Apes tomorrow with my friends and I can't wait

Saw Spider-man Homecoming last night and I enjoyed it a lot. Tom Holland is an excellent Spider-man with some really nice references to the previous Marvel films. Also Karen is hilarious! That said, I'm not really a fan of his supporting school mates. I found them dull and not much like their comic book selves.

Spider-Man: Homecoming was a nice little film, far funnier than I was expecting. Film of the summer so far is still Wonder Woman, for me. Great stuff.

Literally everyone will be in Infinity War part 1 and 2. Plus they've announced a second film already with more looking to the future too.

Kong: Skull Island. Although I do like the build up in suspense to Kong's appearance in the last one, I can't complain about how this film got straight to the point and didn't really divert from that.
And the post-credit scene, good lord that was more tantalising to me than any MCU cliffhanger. Can't wait to see how Kong gets pitted against Godzilla.
