U.S. Release Date: 2018-06-01
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Scenes of Peril, Disturbing Images, Brief Nudity)
Director: Baltasar Kormakur
Cast: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin
An honest, if somewhat neutered, account of what happens in situations like this, and worth seeing if you have an interest in (Wo)man vs. Nature battles.
Its challenging content and well-crafted visuals more than counterbalance any narrative unevenness.
An ideal choice for viewing for anyone who is curious about why Bogart is viewed by many as the greatest male movie star of all-time.
"American Made" is breezy and fun and makes its points without subjecting the viewer to a browbeating.
"Anti Matter" is the existential successor to 2015’s "Ex Machina" - low-budget sci-fi in which ideas trump effects.
Brash, energetic, and exhilarating, any points it loses because of a lack of originality are gained back as a result of Theron’s dedication.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)

"Alien: Covenant" has enough of what made Alien great to deliver two hours of big-budget sci-fi/horror entertainment.
A historically based movie that teaches lessons for today as well as educating us about the birth of a nation.
"Allied" probably isn’t prestigious enough to attract much Oscar buzz but it’s too good to be tossed into theaters without a publicity push.
Provides a solid starting place for a series or, if the box office doesn’t warrant a continuation, an engaging stand-alone thriller.
