One problem with flying to Hawaii, visiting the Kauai plantation, testing a dozen varieties of coffees, and picking out the most expensive is that you can never tell if you are suffering confirmation bias. Thankfully, Jeni told me this coffee tasted good (black even) before I told her my tale.
Will Smith punches an alien! Bill Pullman flies an F-18 and is president! Jeff Goldblum nerds out (again) and saves the world with an Apple! (That’s not what I learned in Sunday school…) Other A-list actors do stuff! Yawn.
Call me weird, but even with all the great action sequences, brilliant comedy, gorgeous location shots, trilling music, and startling special effects, my favorite part of the movie is the long exposition scene where we find out why the Nazis are interested in the Ark of the Covenant.
