Anton Yelchin (0 more)
This movie makes me smile, Charlie Bartlett (played by Anton Yelchin) is a rich kid that begins attending a new school. He begins to get psychiatric medication from his own doctor, then passes it out among his peers and serves as their counselor.
It's humorous, and different. I highly recommend it.

entertaining at best
i'm certainly biased because of my everlasting love for anton yelchin, and so i can't give it a lower rating than i have because i genuinely enjoyed it.
it was funny, interesting, and you do root for the main character. i went in expecting to hate it, because who wouldn't just by the concept? but you feel for him, and you kind of just want him to do what he needs to do.

You know me and Star Trek. Of course I was going to enjoy this one. 2016 has been a cruel year though, and the death of Anton Yelchin is going to be a loss to the Star Trek world.

Great movie
RIP Anton Yelchin. He was an excellent actor that I think was very underrated. I love just about every movie he's ever been in. This movie shows, imo, what it's like to really love someone and how hard it can be to make that work sometimes. It's a tear-jerker, but well worth watching.

Out of the three new Star Trek movies, this one, by far, is the strongest. I was surprised that the director, best known for the numerous fast and furious movies, did as well as he did. The villain, played by Idris Elba was kind of blah, I wish they would have given him more to work with. I loved the tribute to Anton Yelchin and Leonard Nimroy (RIP).

Great tributes to the late Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin (1 more)
The cast and their interactions with each other are good
Like it's predecessors, feels more like a generic Sci-Fi action movie than Trek to me. (3 more)
Idris Elba wasted as another bland villain
Shaky cam
Story just didn't hold my attention
I tried, but I just do not enjoy this
I really wanted to like this, I watched it twice in hopes that I would enjoy it, but it just fell flat for me.

This film was based on the novel of the same name by Dean Koontz. I haven't read the novel, so I can't properly judge it on how good of an adaption it was.
Honestly, the only reason I watched this movie was because I was chilling with a friend a few years ago, and we saw a movie with Anton Yelchin in it on Netflix or something (she'd met him twice, I'm still super jealous). It was definitely an entertaining, quick-moving paranormal flick that I immediately fell in love with and purchased a few days after I saw it.

Thoroughbred For A New Generation
With its striking visuals and cleverly paced plot points, this modern day cat and mouse teen Crime Thriller will leave you speechless by the end credits. Anya Taylor-Joy's performance more than makes up for the film's weaker plot points as she brings a sense of vulnerability to the character that otherwise may have felt less memorable if portrayed by any other actress. As usual Olivia Cooke delivers a fabulously balanced performance mixed with dead pan that just makes sense given the subject matter. I feel this chic mystery will garner a cult following in the years to come and it rightly deserves so.
  
Terminator Salvation (2009)
Terminator Salvation (2009)
2009 | Action, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Released back in 2009, this was - at the time - meant to be the first in a new trilogy if Terminator films.

This is the one set almost entirely in a post apocalyptic 'future' (2018, so - at the time of reviewing - 2 years ago), with Sam Worthington still riding his fame after Avatar (before seemingly disappearing), and with Christian Bale taking on the role of a grown-up John Connor.

The film, however, is probably more famous for his on-set meltdown/temper tantrum...

No Arnie - for once - and with a young Anton Yelchin (before his unfortunate demise) as Kyle Reese, this is actually better than I remember it to be, if not brilliant.
