Red Sparrow (R) opens today. This fast-paced spy movie is chock full of sex and violence, but it serves the story. The story about a Russian ballerina turned spy, who is forced to attend seduction school and serve her country using the skills she’s learned. Warning: there are scenes of torture and gory murders, as well as full nudity. These cause some discomfort in the viewer, but the twists and turns make this a compelling espionage story.

What to Watch at Home (Or Not):
Unlocked (R) This UK film got only limited release in the US, and that’s a shame. It’s a solid film about a female British CIA agent whose life gets turned upside down after reluctantly agreeing to go back in the field. With Noomi Rapace in the lead, it’s like a female Jack Reacher, only with more realistic stunts. This is another one that will have you wondering who’s on what side. With a lot of famous faces in the supporting cast, we’re wondering why this thriller got overlooked the first time around.
Our rating: 4 out of 5
Girls Trip (R) Packed full of some really funny performances from a great female cast, this raunchy buddy movie, about a group of friends from college reuniting in New Orleans, is a fun watch. It’s a little over the top with language, adult references and drinking, but has some great messages about friendship and following your dreams. It’s easy to see why this one was such a big hit at the box office.
