The Breakdown of 'Alien: Covenant', 'Before Sunset', 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides', 'Sin City' and 'In the Shadows of Iris'

The Breakdown explores far off planets and answers the question if anyone hears you when you scream in space with its review of the hotly anticipated sci-fi thriller, Alien: Covenant. We also got four other movies reviews including a look at Richard Linklater's classic romance, Before Sunset and as well the swash-buckling adventure feature, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tide. Plus actor Powers Boothe passed away this week so we review one of his movies in the comic book crime noir adaptation, Sin City. As always if you enjoy the show then spread the word to other movie lovers.

You can check out my written review of Alien: Covenant right here.
