Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

Very disappointed. Basically a movie about Star Wars, rather than a Star Wars movie. Kind of a remake/remix of Episodes IV and V. Not as good as the best of the prequels. They should bring George Lucas back.

Recommend: Yeah, I guess.

Movie: Interstellar

Best sci-fi movie I've seen in some time, relativitly speaking.  The movie is a bit long though, almost 3 hours, or 50 years if your television is located closer to a black hole.  Bonus:  you get to visualize four dimensional space projected in the fifth dimension.

Recommend?  Yes, for dimensionality junkies.

Movie: Star Trek films 1 through 6

The first one takes it's time.  Take a long, good look at that Enterprise, baby.  But compared to the original series, once re-watched in their entirety, the first one is good.
The second one is classic.  Did you know Chekhov really didn't do much of anything in the original series?  But he has a part in this movie!  That's nice.
The third one has no music playing during the last dramatic conflict.  Why not?
The fourth one gives us "Double dumb-ass on you."  Spock is now new Spock and not old Spock.  Fun movie.
The fifth one is like WHAAAT?  I kind of feel like nothing really happened in this movie.  I recommend it for the camping scenes.
The sixth one goes detective, and it works well. Everyone gets to be pretty cool at least once.

Of course I recommend them!

TV show: My Love from the Star

I watched a Korean romantic comedy drama! It was pretty good, and you can see it subtitled on Hulu. Jingping had already watched it. It's about an alien who's been trapped on Earth for 400 years who falls in love with a woman. I don't care what you think, it was good!

film: Prometheus

Up to this point, I hadn't seen Prometheus mainly because I knew from rumors that I wouldn't like it, and didn't want to subject Jingping to something I knew she wouldn't like and that I wouldn't like.

I didn't like it. It was stupid and didn't make a lot of sense, and when it did make sense it wasn't interesting. It was a waste of time, and I hear it caused Guillermo del Toro to be unable to make At the Mountains of Madness. So, in fact, I hated it.
