Alien: Covenant (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 122 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

It was visually spectacular, but full of dumb men ignoring the advice of the women, slimy aliens, and backstabbing androids. A friend on Facebook said "it's like Alien's plot with Aliens' action in Prometheus's setting."

Yeah, okay.

The Fate of the Furious (2017)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 136 min

They've been promoting this as being "darker".  Vin Diesel even said "We had to go darker."  Riiight.  This is SO MUCH FUN. A high-budget grindhouse feature with Kurt Russell providing the grindhouse cred.  Johnson and Statham's one-up jibes and threats at each other are so hilarious that, at one point, THEY crack up.

There's one or two downers along the way, but a Guy Richie-type plot twist and tons of stupid ridiculous and WAY entertaining action makes up for it.

My favorite movie franchise did not disappoint.
