Remember the early scenes of Man of Steel, featuring Jor-El and Lara in Krypton? Remember how most folks who saw that must have thought how cool a film or TV show set in that time period would be? Well, your wish has come true. Sorta.
That – as they say – escalated quickly! The return of Star Trek : Discovery finds the ship lost in the ‘mirror’ universe (!) and on a dangerous course in order to get back home.

BOWIE: A BIOGRAPHY by Marc Spitz
An assertion that David Bowie (nee Jones) has been the biggest influence on new bands and new music of the last four decades, would not draw much objections from rock scholars.

As Oscar bait to showcase American actress Jessica Chastain’s prowess (and hopefully add a golden statuette to the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress she’s already won for her CIA agent role in 2012’s Zero Dark Thirty), this new biopic Molly’s Game squarely delivers the goods.
Last time out, we looked at why characters, both main and supporting, are probably the most important element to consider when reviewing a movie. What comes next? Plot.
