Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)

It still could have saved itself at the box office more or less with the same plot, just needed more bankable starts like Chris Pratt & Scarlett Johansson but more importantly couple of rewrites & slightly different & more edgy treatment required. Moreover, they could have save at least 20 odd minutes by removing that pointless & time wasting 'kidnap & rescue' segment where a giant-fat alien tribe kidnapped the heroin Sgt. Laureline (Cara Delevingne).

Overall, not bad, had the potential to become a decent series but sad, they blew it away.

Mayhem (2017)

It's similar to THE BELKO EXPERIMENT only in terms of both the films got the premise of an office building complex where chaos & violence breakthroughs but here a virus plays the part that makes stress hormone levels rise & stimulates extreme emotions without the realization of difference between right & wrong. And surely it worked at least as a better idea than somehow putting explosive chips in the skulls of co-workers who were ordered to kill each other by a mystery voice (Belko Experiment).
Moreover MAYHEM utilized the corporate affairs & its environment with a way more convincing & better approach. Overall, a better executed, more entertaining & bloodier film than TBE.

Glad to see Samara Weaving from Netflix's THE BABYSITTER back in here with another kick-ass role, looks like she's the breakthrough star of the genre this year.
