A ghost story with no future, with the past lingering like green neon. Any beauty or hope is conveyed through surfaces and costumes, a look for desire and obsession fulfilled. If the crashing waves and towering trees greet our doomed lovers, then the bustling streets of modern culture - a world on the cusp of change - will reject it all until it's a mirage; haze evoked though aching memory and spectral shadows. The Greatest Film of All Time? You won't see me disagreeing.
Rest in Peace Anton Yelchin. I am so glad he was very much apart of this movie and got a lot of screen time.
I've got to tip my hat to you Justin Lin. This is what a summer blockbuster is all about. Star Trek Beyond is full of fantastic characters. There are so many great character moments through out the film. Several laughs to be had. Plenty of awesome action set pieces. A good story (Simon Pegg's writing was…
As a lifelong disciple of Gene Roddenberry's creative vision of the future, Star Trek: The Original Series, I always judge these recent films heavily on their ability to capture that fundamental spirit of optimism Roddenberry had so essentially cultivated. A vision of a hopeful and beautiful future, where diplomacy, wonder and exploration are the priorities of a united humanity, peacefully coexisting in order to conquer the final frontier.

Michael Bay tackles Benghazi, in a story of 13 hours of pure Hell.

Are you mad he usually puts the pop in popcorn movie action? Look, he's made some movies I don't wanna see. But, the fella is an entertainer, and he doesn't give a flying fuck what any of us think.…
“Hillary’s America,” the third documentary from author, filmmaker and convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza, begins with an undeniably fascinating premise: What if a Twitter egg made a movie? While D’Souza’s previous feature-length attacks on the Democratic Party were similarly falsified and foaming at the mouth (remember the part in 2014’s “America” when he argued that Hillary Clinton wants to use NASA to turn the United States into her own personal panopticon of terror?), “Hillary’s America” is different — this time, it’s personal.
A moral tale on the hypocrisy of punk rock music. Limbs only become severed and throats only get slashed when they chase a dollar and lie in bed with nazis. There's a possible point to be made about playing an anti-nazi song in your setlist, but you're still taking their money. The posturing of the stage makes them decry capitalism and public figures, but they run towards the arms of police officers when their world starts to crumble. Green Room…
