Four stars

Reflections in the river, giant ships coursing to new land.  A wonderous, arty Pocahontas movie.  More sci-fi in it’s lyricism than that other Pocahontas movie Avatar.

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.
