Movie - Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) [/] In a world where people and pokémon live in peace, teenager Tim Goodman (Justice Smith) investigates his detective father's disappearance with the help of his father's pokémon, Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds). Turns out Tim and Pikachu are the only human-pokémon pair that can talk to each other, giving them an advantage negotiating the two worlds... Better movie than I expected. It's got a substantive plot and good story beats.

Movie - Starship Troopers: Invasion (2012) [/] A platoon is stuck on the John A Warden after it's been infested by bugs who can control the ship, which is now heading to Earth! This is a CGI film with cheap Poser-level graphics but the story is not bad and the you can follow the battle scenes. Lots of characters introduced who die later on but people get different deaths. With Luci Christian as Carmen Ibanez, Justin Doran as Carl Jenkins and David Matranga as Johnny Rico.

New Thai Elephant, San Francisco [+] Thai restaurant and we went here with a 7 person group, mostly Indians. Food is good. They also have a location in downtown San Mateo.
