I think Alien Covenant would work better as a Blade Runner movie about a rogue skinjob going off world to play God. Get rid of the Engineers and their homeworld, make it a human colony. Get rid of the Xeno's but keep the white alien thingys. I find David a fascinating character and the concept of a replicant wanting to create his own life pretty cool.

Tying it into the Alien mythos completely hampers it.

Marvel's casting department probably made the right call when they chose Chris Pratt to play Star Lord (at least from a commercial perspective), but I would have preferred they went with Glen Howerton. He auditioned and I think he would have done a better job.

What would make him work better in the role?

He is a really good actor with great comedic chops, moreso than Pratt. I think Pratt works well in the role but seeing Dennis Reynolds side by side with Iron Man would have been awesome.

I didn't know that. Glen is awesome.

I don't find Requiem For a Dream to be disturbing. I think it's a depressing movie though. I guess living in a neighborhood where it's easy to find used syringes on the ground leaves me a bit desensitized to the movie's subject matter.

I liked Jared Leto's Joker. I just hope he gets better material and gets to do more next time, if there is a next time. His manic joy when Batman is on top of his car was pure comic book or cartoon Joker.

I honestly can't tell if I liked him or not, as he was literally in the movie for about 3-4 min total. Some scenes were about 30 sec long. I think he looks terrible, tough. I wasn't a huge fan of SS. Started off fun, and then it just dragged.

Soooooo, I dunno?

I think it was Honest Trailers that pointed out that he sounds a lot like Ace Ventura. He could've been a good Joker, but he clearly was in the wrong movie.

I loved Leto's Joker but hated Margot's Harley.

I enjoyed The Golden Circle as much if not more than the Secret Service, flaws and all.
