Ten years after the events of Pacific Rim, the Jaeger programme is under threat. Teen-oriented sequel which takes the Independence Day: Resurgence route: good-looking international cast and locations, a focus on China as a sales market, a lighter tone, a sense of disposability.
Chapter 7 in the Skywalker saga. This rebooted SF/fantasy is a calculated pleasure, riffing on no end of series themes and on the structure of the 1977 movie in particular. Slightly soulless, but a decent reintroduction to the mythos.
A perfect job opportunity at a Facebook-ish company goes awry. Muted adaptation of the Dave Eggers novel that gets some things right (the casting, the production design) but fails in delivering either a propulsive narrative or in nailing the book’s ending.
