The second installment of the rebooted Star Trek franchise is finally here and what can I say? I was totally impressed. Though this sequel isn't as awesome as its predecessor, I was left mighty satisfied and happily await a third installment. If this is what director J.J Abrams has to offer everytime, then I believe the upcoming Star Wars trilogy should be in good hands.

The summer blockbusters are here and it gets going with the third installment of the Iron Man franchise - Iron Man 3. After a very disappointing Iron Man 2, the world looks to a thrilling conclusion of the Marvel trilogy. Picking up after the events of The Avengers, we see a shaken up Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), suffering from anxiety attacks and stress. Like your typical superhero movie, some lunatic decides he wants world domination and in this case, it happens to be the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley).

Starring Keri Russell, Josh Hamilton and Dakota Goyo.
Directed by Scott Stewart.
Dark Skies is director Scott Stewart's third film. His prior releases were Legion and Priest and I cant forget how awful they were. His latest effort is much improved although it doesn't add anything new to the horror genre. We meet the Barrett family, who are having financial issues and have to be cutting back on necessities. Then one day Lacy Barrett (Keri Russell) starts to notice strange happenings around the house. Her husband Daniel (Josh Hamilton) is reluctant at first to believe but it becomes more and more evident as the movie goes along, that the house is being haunted by some strange being who also begins to affect the family.
