star trek beyond

I thought replacing J.J. Abrams with Justin Lin would end in disaster.  Instead it only ended in… well a just ok movie.

Star Trek Beyond furthers the adventures of James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and the USS Enterprise in this rebooted series of the iconic franchise.  This time they must take on an evil alien (Idris Elba) from using a powerful weapon to- you guessed it- wipe out a whole bunch of people (aliens? lifeforms?).

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

Well it’s finally Star Wars week guys, so expect a bunch of Star Wars related content over the next few days.  I’m kicking it off with my Top 10 Sci-fi movies.  I’ve never really considered myself a big science fiction fan, but after making this list I’m reconsidering that self-evaluation.  This is one of the hardest lists I’ve put together so far.  That’s why there are so many honorable mentions.  That list is long but distinguished (high five to anyone who can complete the Top Gun quote in the comments).  Qualifiers for this week: Because I didn’t want to take up 7 of my spots with 3 Star Wars movies, 2 Alien movies, and 2 Terminator movies, I am including whole series in one spot.  It’s kind of cheating I know, but it’s my list.  Also, I’m leaving out superhero movies and more fantasy-related movies.  Those are lists for another time.  Let’s get to this one.

I said a couple weeks ago when I talked about the Batman v. Superman trailer that I may or may not do more trailer reviews.  Well, I’ve decided to do so.  I decided that last week when the X-Men Apocalypse trailer came out that I wanted to talk about it a bit.  But I couldn’t find the time and now we have a bunch more to talk about.  So, here are a few from the last week or so.  A bunch more have come out but these are really the only ones I cared to talk about.  I’ll include the trailers below as well.
