Marjorie Prime

Are you ready to put in an order for your AI companion? Discuss.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

The action-adventure spectacle is full of needless detours; the dumb keeps on coming.

War for the Planet of the Apes

This installment bridges the reboot to the original, leaving some room for growth, and is a melting pot of many genres, including The Bridge on the River Kwai and Spartacus.

The Bad Batch

Grungy, trippy and very, very dangerous, this desert dystopia is seductive and deadly in equal terms and a cross between Mad Max and Antonioni.

Colossal

The movie is odd as hell, which is welcome, at least at first.

Evolution

Lucile Hadzihalilovic’s haunting new film is much more interested in mystery than resolution. There are no answers to be found, only strangeness, horror, and just enough sanity to hold it all together.

Arrival

Science fiction and the woman’s picture rarely collide, but here Villeneuve proves that they don’t have to be exclusive from each other.

Equals

Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart star in this science fiction romance set in a futuristic utopian society called the Collective.
