    Downsizing

    ★★½

    When I first watched the trailer I thought "this looks kind of interesting but I have no idea where the plot of this film wants to go", and now that I have watched it I'm still not sure.
    The film can't really decide what story to tell. Several hints of possible conflicts emerge now and then but the plot decides to follow none of them and in the end I was just left clueless, not sure what this film wanted to tell us or what it was all about.

    ★★

    The story is simple: Girl raises a pig, they both become friends. Pig is about to be killed to be eaten. Girl saves pig.

    So if you want to tell this story, why do you have to add all this bullshit about genetically engineered super pigs and a hypocritical food company? Because otherwise the story would have been boring as hell. So you add a douple-hippo-sized CGI piggy and some totally overdone and overacted figures - corporate people and self-righteus…

    Star Trek Beyond

    ★★★½

    If it was only the crew stranded on a planet trying to find a way back home this would have been a great film reminiscent of the good old Star Trek feeling. Unfortunately there has to be an antagonist who as a character doesn't make sense at all and his motivation is completely ridiculous. And this part of the movie is dragging the whole thing down.

    At least I enjoyed Jaylah and I hope they will bring her back, maybe as a replacement for Chekov (R.I.P. Anton).
