    For a sequel, I really like it. The ALIEN and ALIENS movies are one of my top favourite movies. And their sequels were kinda bad, the latest ones. After prometheus things got a bit better, but this is the first one (Thanks Ridley Scott) that scored over a 6 with me. Actually it's close to an 8 out of 10 (for a sequel).

    Talking about aliens, I have watched this really bad movie 'Area 51' on Netflix.

    This is a documentary style movie. With actual aliens in it. They find them (spoiler alert) but the movie is so bad I almost didn't want to even tell people. I expected it to be bad, and I was in a broken heart mood and needed something completely different to watch. This is a 5 out of 10, but there are some crazy moments in them that hold up. I would almost give it a 5,5 out of 10.

    Emma her played character - her mental character that is - is all over the place, and this is what made me want to watch The Circle.

    Tom Hanks has some intense acting in the last few years, but I heard his role is somewhat on the background in The Circle, and with all the NSA/Snowden stuff and how we see the government and big corps like Apple these days, this is a mix of all those situations and it has that cutie Emma in it, I just had to watch it. Emma did a great job making you feel for her, and then make you doubt her intentions, etc. This movie scored a 7 out of 10 on my list. I enjoyed Jurassic Park and The Matrix from back in the day a lot more. But this wasn't a bad movie.

    Then there's the movie 2.22 (that's a time, 2.22 pm) which is a modern (take on) Groundhog Day - it is, and it isn't. I can't explain it.

    It's about this guy that sees patterns and has a hard time figuring out what's going on, but he feels something's not right when he recognizes he finds this person he feels a super strong connection to. Her ex boyfriend, and Central Park train station, and everything around him seems to have a reason to be drawing him in. He finds out it's about him and her, their death in a previous life, and all sorts of things. He goes through these events until he figures it out. It's a fun movie to watch. It's not so lovey dovey as I was afraid it would be. It wasn't as groundhog with seeing the same scene 50 times as I was afraid it would have. And it was modern and techy enough to still give that old history a techy . feel and draw me in enough to watch it. I liked it, it made it over a 6 out of ten, but I enjoyed it a little less than The Circle, and a lot less than Alien. So maybe a 6,5 or 6.6.

    Other movies I've seen but earlier in June, like Ghost in the Shell, Wonder Woman (must see) Trainspotting 2 (pretty good) and whatever else was on Netflix that helped me get through long tough nights.

    When are we going to have a real strong story movie that's mind blowing and visually so smart and stunning that we go: Ok, this one is making the history books.
