Star Trek Beyond ★★★★

Like all the Bad Robot Treks, it comes from the gut, not the heart or the head, and the aesthetic is somewhat un-ambitious, but Beyond is enjoyable in its unpretentious simplicity and delivers on the possibility offered by the 2009 film. In a lot of ways it feels a lot like a throwback to films like The Last Starfighter and (ironically) Galaxy Quest, and the problem solving chemistry  of the cast goes a long way. A moment about twenty minutes from the end may make some eyes roll, but I punched the air.
