Atomic Blonde (2017)

Charlize Theron is the star and driving force behind this feature for a female spy. As Theron put it, it's a movie where a girl is doing all the things a guy usually does. The result is a decent action movie that will probably receive mixed reviews. Atomic Blonde is very much a Bond movie, delivered using the plot devices of The Usual Suspects in the skin of a low budget comic book movie like Kick Ass. 7761

Nocturnal Animals (2016)

It feels weird to call a movie a "modern day Hunger Games" because that series is still relatively recent, but that's definitely what this is. Nerve is what the Hunger Games would be like if we had them in the current day instead of waiting for the future for it to happen. Instead of fighting to maintain the social order, people are putting their lives at risk to compete for social media notoriety. 6760
