In ‘Star Trek Beyond’, it’s the little things that make it fun

“Things have started to feel a little … episodic,” acknowledges the commander of the USS Enterprise in his famous captain’s log, three long years into a five-year 23rd-century gig. That line, cheeky and knowing, comes early in “Star Trek Beyond.” It’s the 13th feature film pulled from the hallowed Gene Roddenberry TV series, the Cold War-era phenomenon that believed in ideas and the democratic ideal.

‘Ab Fab’ makes a wickedly funny return

The release of “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” is genius counter-programming against the massive media story of the week — the Republican National Convention. We could all use a dose of escapism, and “Ab Fab” is a big, bright and viciously bold celebration of funny, flawed women, and the friendship that sustains them. Creator, writer and star Jennifer Saunders launched a cult phenomenon with the BBC series in 1992, a satire of the women who rule the worlds of PR and fashion. PR agent Edina (Saunders) and fashion editor Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are vapid, trend-chasing mavens, nearly crippled by a dependency on booze and cigarettes, outfitted in outrageously loud garments. But they’re as lovable as they are hateable, sweetly vulnerable and wickedly funny. They never stop trying for more, and while that may be for shallow, materialistic things, their striving is laudable.

‘Lights Out’ the perfect horror movie to see in a dark theater

David F. Sandberg’s excellent horror flick “Lights Out” is about common fears and universal phobias, about things that go bump in the night and exist only in the dark. Built on a clever premise, the film is executed seamlessly. It’s the best expression of a low-budget horror flick: resourceful and smart, where the most charismatic character is the ghoul itself. Sandberg’s spooky tale is about what happens when the demons in your head come out to play.
