Until then though, if you do go to a theater make sure it has a policy of requiring attendees to wear masks, and sit in isolated groups out of proximity of other viewers.

2067 – Releasing in Theaters and Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (Unknown At This Time)

The year is 2067, the air on Earth has become unbreathable, and humanity is living on borrowed time. When things look bleak, Ethan Whyte, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee, receives a message from the future that gives the human race the chance for survival.

As fantasy and science fiction becomes reality, we have to realize that our actions have consequences. Convenience is one thing, but do you want to kill your grandchildren from built-up laziness? This movie is well in good for a sci-fi journey, but we really should be learning this lesson because in reality, humanity won’t be saved by a deus ex machina.

Death of Me – Releasing in Theaters and Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (Unknown At This Time)

A couple, played by Maggie Q and Luke Hemsworth, are trying to relax on their vacation when a mysterious video catches their attention after a blackout. In the video one of the two murders the other. Now, with confused obsession, the pair must discover the events that led up to the creation of the video, if they hope to understand it.

A murder mystery where the murderer isn’t the mystery. If you are looking for a suspenseful movie, this one will fit the bill as this seemingly loving couple try to find out what would cause the other to murder them.

The Great American Lie – Releasing in Theaters and Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (Unknown At This Time)

America has been split into two groups of people. The “haves” and the “have nots”. Now Jennifer Siebel Newsom uses her documentary to examines the growing divide, and the problem that the social and economic inequality split has caused in America.

If you are a fan of documentaries or want something to watch to polarize you into voting this November, then I highly recommend that you check out this documentary. There is not much more to say, other than the fact that society needs constant reminders that holding a majority of the population back and in poverty will only lead to revolutions.

Possessor Uncut – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 93%

The world is a scary place, when people snap and kill those closest to them, but is it their decision, or the brilliant work of a group of elite assassins? This movie focuses on Tasya Vos, played by Andrea Riseborough, an assassin that uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people’s bodies. She is very successful at it, but when she inhabits Colin Tate, played by Christopher Abbott, to kill John Parse, played by Sean Bean, she bites off more then she can chew, as he regains control, and attempts to prevent and get revenge.

I am actually really excited about this film. It looks like a solid revenge, rampage film, with multiple layers in a sci-fi setting. What more could you ask for in a drama/action film? I highly recommend this film, and many others have ranked it as very suspenseful. Maybe Sean Bean will live to the end of this one!

Save Yourselves! – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 85%

Jack, played by John Reynolds, and his girlfriend Su, played by Sunita Mani, are struggling and want to reconnect with one another. Thinking technology is at fault, the two travel to a remote cabin, and disconnect themselves from the digital world for a week. When the weekends, their return to the normal world is off, as they have missed a landslide of notifications and alerts describing an attack upon the world by an alien invasion. Now the two must try to find their way back to civilization to see what can be done, or if all is lost.

This is the Legion M film from Sundance that the members helped decide. If you are looking for a modern comedy, and an escape from the horrors of modern society, then maybe a romp in which humanity is under alien siege is what you need. At least until actual aliens come down to earth, and this funny film becomes an accidental documentary.
