    Star Trek: Generations

    ★★½

    This essentially feels like an elongated, very special episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. That isn't exactly a knock against it but I expected a little more grandeur from the meeting of the two most famous Enterprise captains.

    Data happily yelling, "I HATE THIS!" is certainly a highlight though.

    Honestly this just a few degrees of camp away from being perfection. The film very much leans in that direction for some fleeting, incredible moments but unfortunately tends to stick closer to the traditional mode biopic with mixed results.

    Jessica Chastain absolutely owns this film and gives it her everything. It is therefore a shame that her key scene partner, Andrew Garfield, feels woefully miscast as Jim Bakker. From his over-the-top accent to his inability to actually look any older…

    Ok yeah I know the original 'Grease' is technically a better movie and a legitimate classic...but I love 'Grease 2' more and I'll never apologize for it.
    The songs are catchier, the dancing is better, the female empowerment is stronger, and Maxwell Caulfield is the goddamn hottest man alive in every frame of this movie.
    Don't @ me.
