The new series of Star Trek movies has swapped out brains for action, and Star Trek: Beyond showcases this fact in new uncertain terms. But is it worth seeing? Read on to find out!
It’s pretty obvious that the recent run of “Star Trek” movies is not your father’s “Star Trek”. The thoughtfulness and philosophy of the older “Trek” incarnations with amped-up action and a starship full of quippy dialogue. The latest helping, “Star Trek: Beyond” is the quintessential contemporary “Trek” film, an action-packed romp that tries to make up for it’s lack of intellectually stimulating content with a lot of gunplay and giant fireballs...

The problem with the Ghostbusters remake is probably not what you think. Read on to see how this movie fails. 
The main antagonist of the new “Ghostbusters” remake, Rowan (Neil Casey), is a creepy, awkward weirdo who wants destroy the world because he’s been bullied, belittled and browbeaten his entire life. Word around the campfire is that the movie’s director, Paul Feig, was also bullied and mistreated as a kid. I was rolling these thoughts around in my head while watching the movie when something clicked. Perhaps Rowan is Feig’s stand-in in his “Ghostb...

This week's column...
Hey, everyone. Did you know that I’m a misogynist? Yep, yep. I think, based on what I’ve seen from the trailers and TV stops, that the “Ghostbusters” remake looks awful and I have little interest in seeing this Dumpster fire. According to the studio backing the film — Sony — and the movie’s director and cast, there can only be one reason for my reluctance to see it: I hate women, and I’m angered that anyone would dare to alter...

Yoda once said "Size matters not." Read on to see how Independence Day: Resurgence proves him right. 
When the original “Independence Day” blasted into theaters in 1996, it was unlike anything ever seen before. Oh, the story was hackneyed and unoriginal but the visual effects… Wow! The scope was epic, the size was massive and it just felt absolutely HUGE. The trouble is, things have changed since those days and we get a movie the size of “Independence Day” almost every week. And one of the only ways to stand out is to go bigger than the...

Ghostbusters 2016 director Paul Feig is a professional filmmaker, but he's acting like a pouty 5-year-old. And this is why it needs to stop.
Paul Feig, O.k., dude. It’s time to shut your mouth. For weeks now, you’ve been using seemingly every opportunity to blast fans of the original “Ghostbusters” from 1984. You claim that the nerds are the biggest jerks in the world, that the only way we could not be pants-wettingly excited for your “Ghostbusters” remake is because we’re a bunch angry, misogynistic man babies that just can’t handle the idea of a movie starring four strong female Gho...

The new Ninja Turtles movie isn't a piece of genius, but at least it's fun. Read all about it:
For some reason, big summer movies have been growing “darker” and “more gritty”. For some reason, filmmakers equate “dark” and “gritty” with “realism”, when it really means “boring” and “joyless”. But if there was a memo going around Hollywood that all summer movies need to reflect the dark, gritty aesthetic, the makers of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” seem to have missed it. THANK THE MAKER! ”Out of the Shadows” isn’t a grea...

I probably would have seen it anyway, but thanks for the review!

This week's column: Tunes to keep the aliens at bay while you're watching the stars. 
Do you know why alien abductions don’t occur during the winter? Cuz it’s too cold for anyone to be outside running around. But summertime? That’s a whole other ball of wax. I’m a huge fan of stargazing. I love looking up at the sky, wondering what’s up there and pondering whether I’ll ever understand how we all got here and what the purpose of the universe might be. Summer is the perfect time for stargazing because it’s not too cold...

My younger brother enriched my life more than he probably ever knew. In this week's column, I discuss a few of the gifts he left me.
It was a moment that completely re-arranged my reality. About a half hour into my shift at the University of Utah bookstore, a co-worker handed me the phone receiver, telling me I had a call. On the other end of the line, my mom told me I needed to head home. There was a tremor in her voice that told me that something catastrophic had happened. Then, she hit me with it. My younger brother, we’ll call him “Pookie,” was...

Alton Brown is a multi-faceted gem of an entertainer. And all you have to do to find out why is watch his shows on Netflix.
One fateful night I dropped in on my good friend Sparkles and, by chance, she was Netflixing “Cutthroat Kitchen”. Hosting the show was Alton Brown, who spent most of the show trying to stop the chef-testants on the show from being able to accomplish their meal plans. And he really seemed to enjoy doing so. And, super shocker, I really enjoyed watching him do so. I was hooked immediately. Hooked on Alton Brown. Someone should write a Journey-esque...

I kinda wish Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson would quit doing action flicks and just do comedies. Read on to learn why...
It’s a bit of a shame that Dwayne Johnson, the actor formerly known as “The Rock, is so good at kicking butt and looking tough in action movies. Because the guy has a gift for comedy. The latest evidence of this is “Central Intelligence”, a routine buddy movie co-starring Kevin Hart that Johnson almost single-handedly make this movie worth seeing. The story: Calvin Joyner (Hart) is stuck in life, stuck in his job, and his marriage to Maggie (the ...

Guns n' Bullshit
I have to get this off my chest, and because I think people on both sides of this issue are a bunch of buffoons, I don't really care if I piss anyone off. If I do offend you, please feel free to unfriend me. (Also, I use a lot of bad words in this rant. You...

To be honest, I think the biggest problem with this issue is that it's such an emotional issue. People turn off their brains and react according to their feelings. You present some very thoughtful, valid points that I think the other side should consider. Thoughtfulness, patience, and intelligent discourse is what this issue needs.

In the mood to Netflix a classic film that's packed full of laughs? Here's why you should check out His Girl Friday.
The modern romantic comedy has a pretty set formula. Boy meets girl. Boy and girl can’t stand one another. Boy and girl get to know one another and fall in love. Boy does something incredibly stupid and girl jets. Boy realizes he can’t live without girl and chases her down at an airport or something, where they have a smooch-filled reunion. Boy and girl live happily ever after. Something like that. The modern rom-com’s roots run back to the screw...
