"The Bad Batch" is one of those films that are nearly impossible to categorize. So here goes. Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour ("A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night"), the film is a post-apocalyptic darkly comedic horror romance (see what I mean ?) that stars Suki Waterhouse as a young woman who is captured by a savage band of cannibals and quickly realizes she'll have to fight for her very existence in this human-eat-human world.

The film also stars Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, Diego Luna, Giovanni Ribisi, Jim Carrey and Jayda Fink.

"The Bad Batch" opened in select theaters on June 23rd, 2017 and received mixed reviews. The film was generally criticized for failing to maintain the viewer's interest throughout its overlong running time due to its wildly jumbled narrative tone.

transformers-the-last-knight-movie-trailers-clips-featurettes-images-and-posters

"Transformers: The Last Knight" is the fifth installment in the long-running partnership between Paramount and Hasbro. Michael Bay once again directs, but he has announced that this will be his last film in the franchise he directs. Mark Wahlberg also returns as Cade Yeager from "Age of Extinction" and he is joined by franchise veterans Josh Duhamel and John Turturro, and newcomers Laura Haddock, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael and Anthony Hopkins.

The voice cast includes Peter Cullen, Erik Aadahl, Ken Watanabe, Omar Sy, Jim Carter, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Frank Welker, Reno Wilson, John DiMaggio and Mark Ryan.

"Transformers: The Last Knight" opened in theaters on June 21st, 2017 and was universally panned by critics. The complaints regarded the usual suspects found in most Bay movies: brash mix of action and comedy, chaotic editing, confusing plot, the objectification of women and machismo. The visual-effects, however, were well-regarded.

The film is also having trouble at the box-office, grossing an all-time franchise low of $15.7 million on its first day, which lowers initial projections of a $70-75 million opening weekend down to $60-65 million.
