I've watched 13 NEW movies this year



In my "Best Everything of 2016" list entry, I lamented the fact that I only watched 10 new movies last year and that I was going to try harder to watch more movies this year.

Well, so far this year I've watch 13 new movies and I regret nothing...well, actually I do kind of regret seeing "Beauty and The Beast" and "Aftermath", but whatever.


So what were these movies and what did I think of them?


"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is one of my favorites of the year so far and I love it. Oddly enough, I just watched the first "Guardians" this past January and I watch the second on a late Thursday night showing.


"Life" is a pretty good sci-fi horror movie and while I noticed the similarities at the time after re-watching all the Alien movies this past month I really noticed how similar "Alien" and "Life" are.


"The Lego Batman Movie" is a lot of fun.


"Kong: Skull Island" and "Power Rangers" are fine summer blockbusters.


"The Great Wall", "Alien: Covenant", and "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" are all OK films.


"Silence" is better made and "smarter" than all the above films, but I don't prefer it to any of the above.


While, I thought it was good the first time around I really think I need to re-watch "Split" to form a solid opinion on it.


It's not a great movie, but I enjoyed "Megan Leavey" a lot. Definitely more than I thought I would.



And after all that I still need to watch "Logan" and "Wonder Woman", and there are still some movies coming up that I'm really looking forward to ("Dunkirk", "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets", "The Last Jedi"). We'll see what happens.
