    Pacific Rim

    ★★★½

    Watched this on BluRay to test my new surround sound set up. While the 5.1 track didn't actually have much depth to it beyond just regular stereo, I still had an absolute blast. Pacific Rim is just the right level of stupid while still being beautiful to look at and exciting.

Other times when, a mirror is not present, entire conversations will happen with the camera only showing half of the people involved.…

    Rocketman

    ★★★★

    Brilliant, fun, inspiring, beautiful, sad, and extravagant. Rocketman was incredibly fun, and one of the best musicals I've ever seen.

    Anyone who complains about Rocketman not being historically accurate has missed the point. Some biopics that do try to recreate an accurate chronology of events can and should be criticized when they alter the facts. Far too often, biopics tend to tell a story that sounds plausible while also helping the brand image of whoever it is portraying by telling…
