    Death Race 2050

    ★★★

    Echternkamp is certainly no Paul Bartel, but he still managed to make a fun, trashy flick that does a decent job of capturing the spirit of the original Death Race 2000. In addition, the film functions as a pretty decent send-up of contemporary society, and thus it feels like an incredibly relevant film. All in all, it's not a great flick, but people who can get on its wavelength should find something to admire.

    Star Trek Beyond

    ★★½

    Eh, it's fine, but as is the case with most modern blockbusters, it's nothing more than a bunch of CGI nonsense and slick, incomprehensible action sequences. It's also completely forgettable in every way. While it's a perfectly passable piece of entertainment, I can safely say that this Trek reboot series is absolutely not for me.

    Not bad, but this movie is far more impressed with itself than I could ever be.

    Utterly delightful. One of the most joyous films this side of Singin' in the Rain.
