Rachel Weisz tackles Daphne du Maurier’s enigmatic heroine in My Cousin Rachel, while BLAME! sees Netflix release a feature-length adaptation of a long-running Japanese manga series. Laurie saw both of these and also covers Children of Men and Gladiator for WWBW, with Phil taking a crack at How to Train Your Dragon and Sense & Sensibility. He also tries to explain how he handles movie fan frustration when friends don’t pick up on a film in quite the same way. Thanks for your emails and tweets!

Prometheus disappointed many Alien fans, has Ridley Scott got it right for prequel-sequel Alien: Covenant? Michael Fassbender is joined by Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride.
