Star Trek Into Darkness
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Original Series (TOS) was a thoughtful & action packed 1967-69 show, usually well scripted with a great message slipped in. Will I watch "into darkness"? Yes, when it's free on cable - but only because it has some great actors in it, including Cumberbatch. The 2009 movie should have been marketed as a whiz-bang spoof of Roddenbery's original. Or change the title and the character names and it would be a pleasant sci-fi pic - but Star Trek it ain't! If you respect the spirit of Star Trek, don't see this film on opening weekend - if at all!

This film cemented both director & actor as top box office draws. This could be described as the Japanese version of a sprawling western epic - only with an Eastwood style hero instead of Wayne. Well, Yojimbo talks & fights a bit more like Clint and drinks more like John with only a sword by his side.

This flick was made for the drive-ins and late night reruns. What saves this from being a total turkey is Hauer's performance which I can nearly believe.

Good but not great, in some ways this is both a rehash & respectful nod to the character and fans who made this an iconic role.

The Triplets of Belleville
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I was actually disappointed. Simple animations and a rousing 1920's retro score (which mostly took the place of any speech) fill this film with emotional appeal of a music video. A very long arte haus music video. Perhaps this is best watched by the under 10 crowd or the over 30 crowd - with the latter being 3 wine glasses soused.
