Star Trek Beyond (2016)

Ok, you would right to say that this is just a repackaging of every other Star Trek movie.  In fact, it even returns to the original Star Trek ship, no less.  However, if you grew up loving the series, then I don't think you will be disappointed with this installment.  As is almost always the case, there is a new alien life form introduced, and in this one it is Jaylah, a very appealing character.  She not only saves Captain Kirk's crew, she is right on par with Scotty when it comes to mechanical chops.
Krall is the bad guy, for a long time it looks like he is going to have his way with them, and you know how that is going to turn out.  It is all in the telling, or really, the watching, but bear in mind that Simon Pegg is not only Scotty, he is also the script writer.  We have just a few Oscar nominees left to watch, and this one amazingly did not win in the category it was nominated in, Best Makeup and Hairstyles.  So while I have seen two out of three of those nominees, I have yet to see the winner.
