I took some long plane flights recently, and so I saw a lot of movies that I probably wouldn't have, normally.

Their Finest: dramedy set in London during The Blitz, about a film company making patriotic movies. So-so; Bill Nighy is great, as usual. Would make a great double-feature with Dunkirk. (The original title was "Their Finest Hour-and-a-Half" which is a clever mash-up of Churchill's comment and the runtime of their movies. Cutting the title made it totally un-clever.)

Eye in the Sky: riveting drama about drone warfare.

Boss Baby: animated. kinda cute, some laughs.

Life: if you take Alien and remove the horror, the imaginative alien design, and most of the suspense, you'd get Life. I was surprised by the ending, though.
