Are You Screening? Podcast #213 – King Arthur & Alien: Covenant Reviews

The summer didn’t kick off with a bang for us, which shouldn’t be a surprise given that the Alien franchise disappointed us with its last installment. Covenant really turns the crazy up to 11, but also the nonsensical characters and plot development.

King Arthur didn’t exactly fare a lot better, though it had a lot of fun moments built into the weird world it was after. Oddly, I was more disappointed with this one, although that’s just because I had some expectations. It’s one more wacky trip with Guy Ritchie, which just makes him more confusing, but it offers hope for Charlie Hunnam‘s future, because I don’t think you can blame him for anything.

We give you the full scoop on these movies and much more.
