The final trailer for Dark Phoenix was released a few hours ago, and it looks pretty good. The problem is this isn’t the first trailer and it’s a little late for redemption. And besides, I have seen other movies in the Fox X-Men series, and they’re for the most part mediocre, at best (and X-Men: […]
Initially I thought that an idea of a series of short films based within the Alien universe was a great idea. That is, till I saw Alien: Containment and came to–in hindsight a hasty conclusion–that maybe it’s not such a bad idea that the Alien franchise maybe takes a bit of a break. As I […]
