Transformers The Last Knight reviews

Paramount Pictures held the embargo for Transformers: The Last Knight until 7pm EST today, which is the same time the first public screenings were scheduled in theaters across the country. That’s not a tactic the studio usually takes, but considering the critical beating they received with Baywatch not too long ago, I suppose it’s not too much of a surprise.

So will Michael Bay’s latest Transformers film fare any better with critics? Come on, you and I both already know the answer to that question. Join me below to read a selection of some newly-published Transformers The Last Knight reviews and see just how much critics despise this film.

War For the Planet of the Apes is /Film’s most anticipated movie of the summer and it looks like our faith that director Matt Reeves would make a sequel worthy of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has been rewarded.

glow reviews

One of my most anticipated new shows coming to Netflix is GLOW, which stars Alison Brie and Marc Maron. Set within the real 1980’s world of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, Brie plays the fictionalized Ruth Wilder, an out-of-work, struggling actress in Los Angeles who “finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling.” The show was created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black, Weeds), who executive produce alongside Orange Is the New Black producers Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann.

The first reviews of GLOW have begun to appear online. Did the critics give the series a piledriver or did they mark out like fans at an old ECW show?

The Mummy Trailer

Last night brought the first round of press screenings for The Mummy, the first film in Universal’s ambitious Dark Universe franchise that will see remakes of classic monster movies from the studio’s history, including The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, as well as recently announced additions The Phantom of the Opera and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

With a lot riding on its shoulders, how does The Mummy fare not just as the start of a major franchise, but as a new vehicle for Tom Cruise? Well, the reviews don’t have many kind things to say, which doesn’t bode well for the Dark Universe, despite Universal’s confidence in the franchise.

Alien Covenant

Even though we’re still a little under two weeks away from seeing Alien: Covenant on the big screen, critics have already seen the next chapter of the Alien prequel series that began with Prometheus and will supposedly continue with even more sequels that will take us back to the events of the original Alien from 1979. So what are the early reviews saying?

The consensus: though Alien: Covenant is a return to form for Ridley Scott as far as the horror, blood and gore is concerned, the director has a hard time balancing that stuff with the intellectual, thought-provoking, scientific side that made Prometheus less enjoyable than its predecessors.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales reviews

Last night at CinemaCon 2017, Walt Disney Pictures screened Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales to exhibitors and press packing the Coliseum in Ceasar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Is it possible that Disney is screening the fifth Pirates film two months early because they believe they have a good movie? While we were asked to not write a full review, we were allowed to publish a brief reaction.
