The original 3D movie and its fans would argue the best. Shot in 3D on giant stages, the movie is a visual triumph simply because it's not "poking spears at you" and is much more subtle.

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
