Under The Scope | Movie Review: Alien: Covenant

Next up in the 2017 Scope Summer Movie season is Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s pseudo-sequel to the 2012 film, Prometheus.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterson, and Danny McBride(?!?), this movie has thrills, chills, and some xenomorph action. But does it have enough alien acid blood to truly entertain Jared and Shane? Feel free to check out the review and find out!

The Scope summer movie season of 2017 is officially in overdrive. And the movie that’s making it happen is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the eagerly awaited sequel to the 2014 surprise hit.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

The 2017 Scope Summer movie season kicks off in full gear with the film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. In this Guy Ritchie retelling of the famous knight story, we get a little GoT, LotR, Snatch, old school Conan the Barbarian, and the video game, Soul Caliber.

But will all of these inspirations combine in a way that makes a compelling movie? Well, sit down, belly up to the roundtable (not the nerd version) and let Jared and Shane tell you!

The Scope King Arthur: Legend of the Sword loves free hat giveaways at free screenings.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: T2 Trainspotting

In the oddly named sequel to the highly influential 1996 film, Trainspotting, Danny Boyle reunites the entire cast a mere twenty years later in T2 Trainspotting. Yes, all of your favorites are back: Spud, Sick Boy, Begbie, and Renton…but middle-aged!

What kind of naughtiness will the gang find? Could this movie ever be as important as the original? Hell, does the world even need the further adventures of Trainspotting? Just sit right back and let Jared and Shane answer all of those questions (and more) in the latest Scope movie review!

The Scope T2 Trainspotting review doesn’t mind a more subtle version of Born Slippy.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: The Lego Batman Movie

For The Scope’s first movie review of 2017, Jared and Shane take a look at The Lego Batman Movie, a pseudo-sequel to The Lego Movie. But this one is all about Batman, his isolated life, and his nine abs. All in lego form!

But the real question is this: can the voice cast of Will Arnett and company carry an entire Lego movie without the likes of Emmet, Unikitty, and Wylstyle? Listen to review and find out!

In the latest Scope movie review, Jared and Shane discuss the Amy Adams film, Arrival. In this surprising “aliens-come-to-earth-and-humans-must-communicate-with-them” movie, cerebral storytelling trumps action and mayhem.
