ALIEN CONVENANT
SCI-FI/ACTION

PLOT:  The sequel to the prequel of Prometheus!

                                I know it sounds crazy but it is correct; this is the sequel of Prometheus before Alien 1979.  Covenant means coming together and it is also the name of the spaceship in the film.  A group of astronauts are off course by an unexpected blast and they are awakening too soon and they discover a perfect planet until they find out the planet is not so perfect.  The “covenant” coming together is how the “Aliens” disturbing origin began.  The creatures have many other ways to invade the human body and it is nasty!  Ridley Scott directed both movies and Alien 1979 and it is very well made.  The director is making a third prequel.  How many prequels can you do?  It is not doing well in the US maybe no one has ever heard of so many prequels and sequels for one movie!  If you like the Alien franchise you should see this movie; if not wait until cable. 

WONDER WOMAN
ACTION/FANTASY

                PLOT: The origin of the most famous Amazon ever.

                                Gal Gadot (Fast and Furious movies) is Diana an Amazon living and training in beautiful island in Themyscira when Steve Trevor (Chris Pine, recent Star Trek movies) washes ashore.  She finds out there is war outside her world and decides to help Steve.  Basically you know the story of Wonder Woman but it is on the big screen with a female superhero.  Gadot is very good as Wonder Woman.  What she lacks in size she is very intense!  The fight scenes are slow-motion but AMAZING.  The villains are not great but not dull either only for they did not have much to do.  It is also directed by a woman Patty Jenkins whose last film was Monster in 2003. Much is riding on this blockbuster because if it fails-wait a looong time for female lead superhero. 

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5:  DEAD MAN TELL NO TALES
ACTION/ADVENTURE/FANTASY
  
                PLOT:  The further tales of Jack Sparrow.

                                 Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) has a past and his name is Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem,(No Country for Old Men, Skyfall) who kill all the ships at sea until he finds a mythical object to break the spell.  At least it is better than then last one.  It has all you expect in these kinds of movies.  Bardem is just amazing as the evil Captain Salazar.  He is a great actor but he plays a bad guy he gives the character depth but you still dislike him!  HIGHLIGHT:  Rotting  zombie sharks!!  If you like this movie series you should see this installment.
