Wonder Woman (2017)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 141 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

Supposedly Joss Whedon wrote a Wonder Woman script, but Warner shot it down because Whedon would have come up with something fun and likable, which is strictly forbidden in DC movies. So instead we get a World War 1-era opus that feels like it's longer than the Twin Peaks revival. Still, all of it is good, especially the advancing the front scene. And there are moments that somehow slipped by the DC anti-fun censors.

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.
