Extraordinary Critters and How They Might Best Be Located


Two stars

Super dark Who Framed Roger Rabbit cgi.  Weird child molestation undercurrents.  Colin Farrell meet-ups in seedy alleyways with abused boys.  Cute echindas & naked mole rats.  Lotsa wizards shouting, “Evaporota!”  Hollywood A-listers transform into other A-listers.

Galaxy Quest


Three stars

Dated Star Trek spoof still getting cult love.  Noteworthy for introducing a lot of comedy folk who went on to renown.  The conceit gets muddled at times, the characters sometimes being actors playing characters and sometimes being the characters themselves.  Alan Rickman and Tony Shalhoub are great.
