may 8


May has come to a close and so have the reviews for the month. I’ve been through aliens, two guys making a show in their parents’ basement, and a couple of gunslingers. I’d call it a busy month. Here are the rankings of all I have judged this past thirty-one days.

may 1

#10- “Alien: Resurrection”
29%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: Very few good scenes and credit for completing a film.
Cons: Awful acting, terrible directing style, I didn’t care for a single thing going on, the final alien creation looked like something off of “Mr. Meaty,” and many things made no sense.

#9- “Alien 3”
57%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: Directing was fine, good color tones, and okay acting.
Cons: Outdated in terms of special effects, sloppy story, hollow, beginning made no sense, and cheap dialogue.

#7- “Legend”
65%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: Great acting, Tom Hardy is fantastic, some good scenes, and great setting.
Cons: The plot was rather empty, with nothing really happening.

#7- “Wyatt Earp”
65%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: Good setting, great cinematography, some redeemable scenes, and Dennis Quaid as Doc Holiday is great.
Cons: The story is empty and flat, I didn’t care for many of the characters (including Wyatt Earp), the acting wasn’t that good, and it was slow.

#6- “High Plains Drifter”
82%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Good acting, great action, Clint Eastwood is awesome, beautiful location, and great ending.
Cons: Story felt loose and some things felt like filler.

Juicy Hall of Fame Inductee“Alien”
97%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Fresh story, good acting, suspenseful, great concept, and good special effects for its time.
Cons: Ash’s character development felt randomly thrown in and the story was predictable.

And yet another Movie of the Month is crowned. May has picked “Aliens” to go up against “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” “Sicario,” “The Martian,” “Batman Begins,” “9,” and the other months come January 2017 in order to decide who will become the next Movie of the Year!!
