    Mean Girls 2004

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Aug, 2016 1

    Surprisingly competent in every way. This is what modern comedies should strive to be at the bare minimum.

    Star Trek Beyond 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Aug, 2016

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Enjoyable as a distraction with some popcorn and a few beers, but with Abrams taking off, so too did much of the series's dramatic heft.

    This doesn't feel like a big, important summer blockbuster in the same way the previous two films did - even though the previous two films were springtime releases. But never mind that.

    In comparison to Star Trek 2009 and Into Darkness, this is fluff. It's enjoyable, entertaining, easily-swallowed fluff, but nonetheless fluff. I knew something…

    It's a documentary about a space elevator - that's three things I love all put together into one, and it literally put me to sleep.

    Beer: Southern Tier 2X Tangier Double IPA - 4/5 (tangerine adds a hint of flavor, not overwhelming; not overly hoppy, either; tasty stuff)

    Not quite what I was expecting, but still highly enjoyable and well made. Excellent cinematography.

    Started out good, but then turned into a fucking reality TV show.

    Tom Hanks needs to take more roles like this.

    This is such a bizarre movie.

    The story is about a dinosaur who gets lost and needs to find his way home. One would assume such an epic journey would involve meeting or at least encountering many other dinosaurs and/or forms of life, but Arlo runs into only about 6 others. So much care was put into making the world look amazing, but it never feels believable because...there's nobody in it.

    It's also not a very funny movie, which is…

    So, what happened to Hank in the ocean? Was that not explained, or did I forget? Because that's too important a part of his character and his arc to leave out.
