That's certainly a strange looking creature.

You haven't ever seen Alien??? mmmmmmmmmm



Spoiler Alert

It's cute and cuddly and gives you a special gift while hugging you.  It implants an egg in your chest.  When that hatches, it rips out through your ribcage (you die).  The initial "chestbuster" stage grows quickly into an adult alien (7-9 feet tall) which kills or captures people.  Those captured get their very own facehuggers.

No, I haven't seen Alien. I'm deciding if I'll see a new movie here called "The Nun". I don't like scary movies.

Next Gen (2018)

Serviceable B list Big Hero 6 knock-off, and you wouldn't know it was from a Chinese studio unless you spotted the telltales or were weirded out by the Wang Nima cameo. Written and directed by US people tho, and overall kind of bland. No real personality. That said, the final boss battle is impressive. Almost worth it.

Why Did Netflix Pay $30 Million At Cannes For The Chinese Animated Film ‘Next Gen’?

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

Definitely a Star Wars story - long, populated by lots of people we don't know or care about, and presenting a story so thinly realised you can't not help but observe how conservative these producers have become in maintaining their properties.

 awawawawaw


Also, Emilia Clarke. She seems like a very nice person irl, but she is the septic arm of franchise death.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018)

In my opinion, softgore hardware and tactics porn. Not really a story. Mostly just sequences of trained men advancing upon targets. (There's a peculiar glorification these days in movies of a particular assault tactic, the squads of men who stack up, aggress around corners, move as a unit *toward* gunfire, shooting as they go... the prevalence of that kind of scene in movies these days is - well, it isn't cliche yet because it's still exciting, but I guess it's on the way.)

Anyway, movie is almost saved by Benicio del Toro's ability to make Alejandro Gillick an almost-hero in the traditional mold, the driven man who accepts suffering in order to achieve moral goals. But he's not operating in a human environment. The entire backdrop is one of American militarised might.

Or, to put it another way, it's like the first movie but not as sophisticated.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

For a beloved classic, that sure is one creepy movie.

La Haine (1995)

French. The original banlieue movie. During the shootings, bombing, austerity, and rioting of 1995 Paris, three young guys try to make it through a day with nothing much to do.

Kind of innocent in retrospect. Worth watching though. Astonishingly funky soundtrack too, which doesn't really become apparent until you listen to the tracks separately from the film.

It makes a little more sense if one knows ET was originally a horror movie, but even so....

Partly it's suspension of disbelief. The ET creature just is not attractive. There's no way a collection of kids are bypassing how freakish the thing looks. But more often it's how the creature resembles a penis. The neck stiffening and the head rising into the air? That's a no right there. What was even the story function of that?!

But anyway... I fast-forwarded a lot because it was boring. Might not be in the best position to critique.
