The first Star Trek movie that I watched almost four years ago was amazing. It made me hope there would be something big and an awesome twist in the second movie that also directed by J.J. Abrams. When I was watching it, I got what I want but I'm kinda disappointed, a little :o

Star Trek Into Darkness actually was really good and added some actions and tearful scenes which made the movie more intents. But there are a lot of things that not dug or the problem seems to be solved easily. For example, how they beat 'easily' the super handsome and brilliant yet cold blood villain, John Harrison, who actually named Khan. FYI, Once he confessed that his real name is Khan, everybody but me was laughing and said that his name made him like an Indian man (puk puk Khan). Another example is the relationship between Captain Kirk and Dr. Marcus. I felt some sparkles in their early relationship and I think they possibly become a couple. But those are just my thoughts. I still love and enjoy the movie though, especially 'Bromance' between Kirk and Spock hehehehe.

Favorite scene: Bromance between Kirk and Spock

FAST AND FURIOUS 6
Genre:
Actions
Director:
Justin Lin
Cast:
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Sung Kang, Luke Evans, Gina Carano, John Ortiz and Joe Taslim

Fast & Furious 6 follows a professional criminal gang led by Dominic Toretto who have retired following their successful heist in Fast Five (2011), but remain wanted fugitives. U.S. Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs offers to clear the group's criminal records and allow them to return home in exchange for helping him to take down a skilled mercenary organization led by Owen Shaw and his second in command, Dominic's presumed-dead lover Letty Ortiz.

I’m not a fan of Fast Furious franchise. The only Fast Furious movie that I have watched is Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift. I was interested to watch the sixth movie because one of Indonesian actors, Joe Taslim, cast as one of the villains. He was good and awesome for his debut in Hollywood. Meanwhile, the rest of the movie was average and sometimes boring. Luckily I watched Tokyo Drift, because the post-credits scene showed something that related to that movie.

Favorite scenes: Han and Gisel’s date in Tokyo and also Taslim’s.

NOW YOU SEE ME
Genre:
Action
Director:
Louis Leterrier
Cast:
Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Mélanie Laurent, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman

An elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against "The Four Horsemen", a super-team of the world's greatest illusionists. "The Four Horsemen" pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.

Now You See Me was amazing. I could not guess what would happen to them. Unpredictable! That is why I really love the movie. Beside good story, the movie also cast some amazing actors. Unfortunately, they did not be the focus of the movie. The story line was the only main point that movie offered. What a waste!

Favorite scene: when they revealed the secret of the tricks. Mind blowing!
