    Hold the Dark


    A bit baffling and frustrating because it never quite comes together as a full movie. Some iffy indigenous mysticism nonsense going on in parts which is a shame, too. Probably in the book.

The first 15 minutes of the Enterprise crew in present day San Francisco is some of the best fish-out-of-water stuff you'll find in a movie anywhere.
