    Chronicle

    ★★★★

    Chronicle is a found-footage flick about teenagers who get super powers and film it all... and things don't go well.

    This is a really good, very solid flick that tells its story well, kind of makes you care for the characters, looks great on a small budget, and was filmed in S. Africa but looks like it was filmed in Seattle (where it's set).

    Ad Astra

    ★★★½

    Checked out the new thoughtful science fiction film Ad Astra. This one is produced by and stars Brad Pitt and is an earnest, if flawed, attempt as heady, mindful, intelligent science fiction. It’s only flaw is that it tries too hard and, in so doing, falls down.

    So Ad Astra is set in nearish future where we have all the same social and political problems but have at least managed to colonize the Moon and Mars. It seems science and…
