Star Trek Beyond Movie Review

Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond is a true Star Trek movie as the classic ones with spaceships, action, fun, entertainment, well-constructed characters and recited well, a story that holds a positive underlying message. It will appeal to newcomers and make happy even the vintage fans.

Star Trek Beyond renews the tradition of Star Trek and puts us in front of compelling characters, with their character. The first act is the best part of the film. It posed a rhythm, almost sweet, which allows us to rediscover the characters masterfully interpreted by the actors. The action scenes are well balanced with the rest along with the spectacular scenery.

Here the first step that triggers the wonder in the viewer is Yorktown is not an outpost to Deep Space Nine, but a flying city with millions of inhabitants. Its structure is a declaration of love to Interstellar and Inception, with those curves and redundant lines, with those shots playing with gravity to create a painting that satisfies the sight.

Then, the motorcycle jumps are there, but in one scene, which moreover makes perfect sense in the plot; second, the Rihanna song is relegated after the credits, which does no harm, while the orchestral music of Michael Giacchino adorns and enhances the film beautifully with a couple of freebies from lump in my throat at the original theme by Alexander Courage.

Star Trek Beyond helps and enhances the enjoyment as the plot is damn well built and better, indeed, than in many other classic movies of the saga. Justin Lin has succeeded as I would not have expected to recreate those games of looks and expressions typical of Star Trek, shots that create the characters, which make them communicate without the need to make them talk too much.

The best thing about Star Trek Beyond is I suppose, across the world finally enthusiastic fans will discuss with joy the movie Star Trek they just saw, retaining the gifts given away by the new adventure of their favourite characters to those who are no longer in the Star Trek family.

There's plenty of action, because the movies need the big show, but is punctuated by intimate moments that those who follow Kirk, Spock and McCoy always adore. And there are moments that bring tears in your eyes as also some which will make you a smile. The trailers have given the wrong impression, making us believe that Star Trek Beyond was a fast and furious movie in space, but it is not.

The moments are tastefully filmed where the emotions of the characters are suggested by expressions of the actors with a game of glances, a smile that not only explained the feeling but it featured the character. And the actors are all up to the task of explaining not through words as you cannot miss a certain smile of Kirk with whom the actor, Chris Pine, emulates perfectly the young Shatner).

And the jokes are so many, without being forced, exactly in the spirit of the original series. So go to the movies and let them know at Paramount that this is the Star Trek that we love and we want to continue to see.

The action flows well, so that the viewer has the geography of the always well clear events with long shots that give a sense of the grandeur of the scene and allow you to understand what is happening and where, instead of the usual frantic editing with tight shots.

The tributes to previous series are there in abundance, but they are not stuffed at random just to please the fans like in the other films but are functional to the plot. Even the tributes to the missing actors are inserted in the story in a logical way, and indeed have important consequences on subsequent events.

Star Trek Beyond all in all is a good, enjoyable and entertaining movie and in other words does not make you regret the money spent on the ticket. In other words, for once a script is structured in accurate fit, done as it should be. I went out with a smile of relief and contentment, and one word in mind: finally.

Egg Curry Recipe

Egg curry in India is known as Anda Curry that is a very simple recipe and is very popular with children. Perfect for lovers of hardboiled eggs, the spicy curry enhances the flavor. In this dish, the hard-boiled eggs are stir fried and then added to a sauce. It is served over steamed rice in India. Eggs can be added to any type of sauce you like. In this instructable I have shown how to make it with peas and tomato sauce.

This week I propose a curry eggs, a dish I wanted to replicate for some time after I had tasted the homemade version prepared by a friend. When I announced that dinner was planned with a curry of eggs it unexpectedly cause generalized reactions of astonishment. And so I realized that it has taken for granted that everyone to know that there are several varieties of curry, not only as regards the main ingredient, but also for the combination of spices and flavor to be obtained. So I decided to make a brief discussion on the curry to have some clarity on the subject.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.

But what really got to me is the second thing - something situated inside the Central Park Resorts township. Read on:
