New movies on Now TV this week
Alien Covenant: Resuscitating a classic movie series is never easy. Alien Covenant does not take us back to the heights of the first two Alien films, but it unites the mythology of Prometheus and the action of aliens with good results.
It's a good action romp with some philosophical noodles thrown in case. Alien Covenant is run by Ridley Scott, did you expect anything less?
Michael Fassbender returns as the spooky David, a synthetic humanoid survivor of the Prometheus expedition. Alien Covenant helps unite Prometheus 2012 and the Alien franchise with a mostly satisfactory effect.
Kick Ass: Memories of Kick Ass may have been contaminated by the 2013 garbage, Kick Ass 2, but this superhero comedy deserves a new visit. Particularly in the year of Avengers Infinity War, a movie with so many characters, one wonders how they all fit into the execution time of 2 hours and 30 minutes. Kick Ass is much thinner.
A teenager and a girl of 11 years old decide to become superheroes, despite not having any power similar to the X-Men. Two hours of intense comic violence continue, steeped in style.
Roger Ebert called Kick Ass "morally reprehensible", so we can not guarantee that everyone will continue with this movie. However, if you can have a clearer picture of the "real" violence that occurs among teenagers, you will probably find it very fun.
Shin Godzilla: Shin Godzilla 2016, also known as Godzilla Resurgence, did not receive as much attention as the successful remake of 2014. It's a much lower episode, made in Japan of the Godzilla saga.
It feels much closer to the roots of the series than the Godzilla films made in the West. It's a lot, well, more strange than them, too.
A theme of the Japanese bureaucracy is as prominent as the monster itself.
Comes at night: Here's an unusual movie. It Comes at Night is a horror movie that critics really liked.
There is no true bloodshed and, like the best horrors, It Comes at Night relies on the creepyness of the invisible and minimal performances. Joel Edgerton is our leader.
An unexplained plague has eradicated a large part of the world's population. A family that hides tries to survive. However, this is much more a drama of character than anything else, a very disturbing one.

Wonder Woman: Testament of the great recent movies that you get Now TV, this week we have Wonder Woman. It was only released in 2017 and is one of the best rated DC Comics movies to date.
Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman, an Amazon warrior goddess who lives on a paradise island hidden with her fellow warriors. Chris Pine is a pilot of the First World War who manages to enter his house and tells him about the conflict in the outside world. Superheroes emerge.
Wonder Woman came to Now TV on International Women's Day. The timing could not be better.
In this corner of the world: Prepare the handkerchiefs. In this corner of the world is one of the most moving animated features we have seen in recent years. It is a domestic drama set in the Hiroshima prefecture in Japan, mostly covering the years prior to the bombing of the city in 1945.
Solve Suzu's daily concerns against the terrible impacts of war, and not just the explosion of the atomic bomb. What results is a beautiful movie that should not be missed. That it was done with a budget of $ 2.5 million, only five percent of Studio Ghibli's The Tale of Princess Kaguya, is remarkable.
Baby Driver: Few film directors have the fun feeling of Edgar Wright, writer and director of Baby Driver. It is a theft movie that plays to the rhythm of its soundtrack.
This is not just an ode Tarantino style to the classic songs either. Lead Miles (Ansel Elgort) is a genius of the driver's getaway who always has headphones, and adds a dialectic layer that makes the rhythm of each track even more important. More than anything, however, this is simply a very funny and tense comedy thriller.

Shock: Ready for a rugged watch and some subtitles? The Clash of Mohamed Diab is worth 97 minutes of your time. It is completely set in a police van in Egypt, as the characters are arrested and thrown in the back. The city is in chaos, after the riots of 2013 caused by the expulsion of President Morsi from the office.
The mummy: The Tom Cruise reboot in 2017 from The Mummy may not be a great movie. OK, it's not even a good movie. But sometimes, after a hard day's work, a bowl of melted Hollywood cheese is just what you need.
New TV shows on Now TV this week
Westworld Season 1: Anticipating season 2 of Westworld, the first series has returned to Now TV to allow you get your binge.
Did I miss it the first time? Westworld mixes science fiction with a western environment. Westworld, the "place", is a quasi-thematic park of the future, a virtual reality world that could be the setting for a classic Clint Eastwood movie. However, not everyone at Westworld is real people, some are androids, letting the series pack into mysterious moments of the valley and the kind of mysteries that made Lost such a convincing watch.
Save me: Save Me is an original Sky production. It's the story of Nelly, played by Lennie James, who is accused of kidnapping his daughter. He has not seen her since she was three years old, but she is arrested on suspicion of the crime.
The six-episode arc sees him trying to discover his true captor and prove his innocence. They are exciting things.
More TV shows recently added to Now TV
Silicon Valley: The first four seasons of Silicon Valley have returned to Now TV as a set of boxes , before the launch of season five of Silicon Valley.
It's a critically acclaimed comedy about nerdy programmers looking to make millions in a new technology company. Silicon Valley is the brainchild of Mike Judge, of Beavis and Butthead, King of the Hill and fame of Office Space. Judge worked as a true Silicon Valley engineer in the 1980s, but the writing and punctuality of the show make it look like one of the coolest shows.
Dinnerladies: If you're ready for an explosion of the past, the two series of the classic Comedy Dinnerladies by Victoria Wood from the 90s will air on Now TV until June.
In the true f
ashion of the BBC, the episodes are half an hour each and the two seasons only accumulate up to 16 episodes. This will not take you months to get there. The dinnerladies of the title work in a canteen of the Manchester factory. It's not slippery and drips with high production values like a American sitcom. But intelligent writing and a large ensemble cast make this an excellent way to review Wood's work. Victoria Wood died in 2016.
Here and now: Six Feet Under fans should get excited about Here and Now. It comes from Alan Ball, the creator of that show. It is a multi-strand story of the current multicultural America starring Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter.
The first criticisms have been mixed, criticizing the unrealistic dialogue and the sense without objective. But let's hit this.

Britannia: You are splitting the reviews, but if you can not wait for a new solution to Game of Thrones, Britannia can fill that hole in the shape of Westeros in your viewing calendar.
Atlanta : The incredible Donald Glover comedy set in the city of the same name was overlooked by many in the UK, and it's well worth watching. It focuses on two cousins who navigate the Atlanta music scene trying to make ends meet, and is as cunning as it is hilarious.
