6/10 76% Last Flag Flying (2017) Four powerhouse performances cannot quite make Richard Linklater's occasionally moving dramedy, Last Flag Flying, into more than a minor war movie. ‐ We Got This Covered

5/10 67% The Pirates of Somalia (2017) Despite an excellent secondary cast and an interesting story, Dabka fails in its aspirations due almost entirely to its own smugness.‐ We Got This Covered

4.5/5 78% Junction 48 (2017) Junction 48 celebrates music as a force for expression and cultural fusion, as Kareem and his friends praise sexuality, love, and the realities of their lives in Lyd as the most profoundly political statements they can make.‐ We Got This Covered

3/5 36% A Kind of Murder (2016) There's too much that's intriguing in this film to ignore it, and although the third act shows signs of strain, the first two acts more than justify the film's existence.‐ We Got This Covered

8/10 60% Burn Country (2016) A well-acted, slow burning indie, The Fixer uses thriller mechanisms to examine insular, tribal cultures through the eyes of an outsider. ‐ We Got This Covered

9/10 88% My Scientology Movie (2017) As fascinating and bizarre as Scientology itself, My Scientology Movie is unique among documentaries for its individual, humorous approach to a very strange subject.‐ We Got This Covered

3/10 27% Nerdland (2016) Nerdland is something like being sucked into a conversation with a semi-drunk dude who imagines that his ramblings are the last word in comedy. You feel a little sorry for the guy at first, but after a while your pity transforms into contempt.‐ We Got This Covered
