    Planet Earth II

    ★★★★★

    The Natural History Unit's round-up of life surviving in Earth's extreme environments was full of beautiful sequences, but it's easy to forget how many of them had a nightmarish edge. Absorbing as this is, Planet Earth II chases viewers as assiduously and expertly as it chases the fauna, rewarding you with sharable stories rather than lingering lessons.

    The Hangover

    ★★★★★

    Hilarious and wild , The Hangover is an outrageous comedy with non-stop laughs. The morning after an out-of-control Vegas bachelor party three friends have to retrace their steps in order to find the groom and get him to his wedding. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis make for a hilarious comedy team and have great chemistry together. And, the storytelling is really good, weaving a fun mystery full of shocking surprises. The humor gets a little overly crass and vulgar, but most of it works. Full of hysterical shenanigans, The Hangover is incredibly entertaining.
