Goosebumps (7/10): An amusing (though not particularly scary) horror movie that didn’t have quite as many featured monsters as I expected.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is either too short, or too long ... I haven't decided which yet. Regardless it's a movie filled with spectacular moments, tremendous visuals, and a sense that there's a story that was some how missed.
Despite a terrible name and a steady decline in cinematic franchise quality, the new Terminator: Genisys trailer doesn't suck. In fact, it's far, far better than I had any right to expect, in large part because it's continuing the theme of temporal riffing that began in The Sarah Conor Chronicles.
We are trapped on Earth. It's something I felt keenly as a kid, which is why the destruction of Challenger, and then Columbia, hit me so hard. Hell, I still tear up just thinking about January 28, 1986, but neither tragedy changed my mind about the importance of space exploration and colonization.
