During my trip to the States, I got to watch a few things on the plane flights over and back:
Alien Covenant: 7/10 - Gorgeous visuals, but a clutching at straws to try and make some high-brow bullshit about where the Alien comes from (I DON’T FUCKING CARE! It’s a perfect creature, it doesn’t need to be explained, just exist).
Baywatch: 8/10 - What the hell, this was much better than I expected. Undeniably sexist, but they know it and have a dig at themselves over it too. Got some good laughs throughout.
Fist Fight: 6/10 - Got some giggles out of it from the sheer “what the fuck is going on!?” moments. Ice Cube is a good laugh in it, playing to conventional stereotypes, but the other main character was pretty good too. A fun mindless laugh.
Fast and Furious 8: 6/10 - They’re pushing the envelope on how bat-shit crazy they can get with this franchise and there are still 2 more films to be made before they wrap it up. They’re dumb, they’re fun, what more do you need?
Marvels: The Defenders: 7/10 (so far) - Only 4 episodes in, but they’ve done a good job on putting the characters together and managed to make Iron Fist less of an annoying twat!
