5-Word 365 #250 – Legion

Day 250. Woo and indeed hoo.

I remember being quite excited to see Legion when the first trailers started appearing back in 2009. The whole idea of an angel on the run from his own kind with a big knife and a bag full of automatic weapons was just too badass to ignore. And then the trailers made way for the reviews and comments from folks who had actually seen it; comments that were almost universally damning.

Secondly, it is the only film that my sister has ever walked out of at the cinema, and that was after she fell asleep during the show. So you can understand my trepidation when I pressed “play” tonight…

My Stepmother Is An Alien

Hey, guys. Justin here from Today I Watched a Movie. I basically begged Ryan to let me do a guest post, so here we are!

I just obtained a copy of My Stepmother is an Alien, and thought it would fit in perfectly with the crazy things Ryan’s always coming up with to review. I had never heard of it before today, and after watching it, let’s just say I’m glad I didn’t have to pay for it. Oops! I’m almost forgetting my five words!

Sneezing somehow saves the planet. Read More
