The Breakdown of 'mother!', 'First They Killed My Father', 'American Assassin', 'Strong Island' and 'The Chronicles of Riddick'

The Breakdown is loaded up with five sizzling hot movie reviews, and even some glorious four stars get tossed out. It is definitely a show were we recommend some movies, but then there are a few to flee away from as well. For the new theatrical reviews, we have Darren Aronofsky's latest in the psychological mind jumble, mother! and then it is time for a bloody spy thriller in American Assassin. We also discuss the new Netflix originals in Angelina Jolie's latest directorial effort, First They Killed My Father and then a very personal documentary about race and the legal system, Strong Island. Then we jump out of 2017 to celebrate Vintember with the sequel to Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick.
