Intense action; smart, funny nods to its roots while moving in a new direction; and explicit confrontation of a problem always at the heart of Star Trek.

Blue Ruin’s Jeremy Saulnier is back with a smart, savage, dryly funny horror flick that has something to say about all-too-human monsters. No spoilers!
I want to live in this movie. I want to crawl inside it and curl up in its lap and stay there forever.
It feels smaller and more rushed — and less plausible — than it should, but Anton Yelchin is charming, and the snappy comic tone sometimes works.
My picks: Saoirse Ronan and Daniel Radcliffe…
Joyously warm and gentle… though perhaps too gentle to be entirely satisfying.
A more mature love story, one about what it takes to maintain a relationship after that first blush of love and that first rush of hormones, and the stupid mistakes that can threaten it.
“That’s a terrible vampire name. ‘Jerry’?” –Charley (Anton Yelchin)… and more…
It’s a rare thing, but sometimes digging up the past and giving it another spin is a good thing.
