    Star Trek Beyond 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Jul, 2016

    The third installment of this pop culture behemoth is the most enjoyable of the new Abrams universe. The plot is straightforward and the chemistry between the crew is fun. The only downside is that the camera likes to move around in zero gravity and there isn't enough of the villain to my liking. All in all, a good late summer movie.

    Tails Waititi's follow up to What We do in the Shadows is a funny, emotional, and stunning movie.  It tells the story of a foster child being passed from family to family and finds a last chance in the country living by the bush. After a tragedy and misunderstanding, the cantankerous old man and the chubby gangster wannabe goes on the run.

    Sam Neil has never been better as a bush man.  Julian Dennison is a new talent that has a bright future.

    Christopher Nolan is one of the most ambitious directors working today in Hollywood. His themes are ambitious. His stories are ambitious. His vision is ambitious Hell, even his tracking shots are ambitious. After a while though, his films could start to feel the same. What makes Interstellar stand out from his other films is the (not so strong) emotional journey.

    Movies and magic go hand in hand. The best magic trick is where you doesn't question how the trick was pulled off, but how awe inspired you are. The same goes for movies. Méliès was, after all, a magician turned filmmaker who used many of his tricks to create special effects for his films (You've all seen Hugo).

    Alfonso Cuaron is not a Director, but a Magician and Gravity pulls of a spectacular and emotional trick.

    The visual effects are…
