An army of nightmares, huh? Let's get this party started.

Not even if you watch them like this...


Oh good! I use that one a lot!

I wonder if the time is coming for you to meet Ripley in the Alien Trilogy. (Just the trilogy.)

I've met Ripley! :)

I still need to see Alien.

I was looking for Alien, figuring if you hadn't seen the original you wouldn't have seen the sequel.

Funny.  I saw the sequel before the original as well.

2. DCU. Not even once.
Is this referring to the D.C. Universe of films?

Yup! SUICIDE SQUAD is not only a bad film, it's indicative of a direction with the entire franchise that the producers have no CINECAST!ing clue what's going on or what to do and are just winging it based on whatever Marvel is doing which is actually listening to fans by hiring fans to write/produce/direct their material (but they're far too scared to do that). Watching the Cinemasins on SUICIDE SQUAD reminded me that the pacing is truly horrendous for SUICIDE SQUAD, literally nothing happens for an hour - just pure exposition.

I find Michael Phillips to be really, uh, *sigh* ...impressionable?

I wonder why they let Snyder direct Justice League after the bomb of BvS. Was the movie already in production?

BvS wasn't really a bomb, box-office wise. It wasn't the humongous it they might have been hoping for, but it did well.
