With the year half over, our three critics have each selected their five favorite U.S. releases of 2015 so far.
Novelist and screenwriter Alex Garland’s brainy, precisely calibrated chamber drama was that rare piece of contemporary sci-fi filmmaking worthy of mention in the same breath as “Blade Runner” and “The Terminator.” Whatever this modestly scaled film lacked in budgetary heft, it more than made up for in sleekly expressive production design, provocative ideas about the fine line between man and machine, and knockout performances from Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander (as the Pinocchio-like android yearning to be a real, live girl).

At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, Netflix Streaming adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Here is a quick list of several that you might be interested in. Some of these may also have previously been on Netflix, only to have been removed and then added back. Feel free to note anything we've left out in the comments below.Alive (1993) The real-life story of a Uruguayan rugby team whose plane crashed in the Andes is brought to harrowing life in Frank Marshall's drama, which adds an element of religious mysticism to the team's struggle to survive. Its casting was controversial even at the time — the Uruguayans are played by American actors like Ethan Hawke and Josh Lucas — but Marshall doesn't whitewash the horrors of the team's two-month ordeal, which included starvation, hypothermia, and cannibalism.

"I'm offering you Manhattan champ, don't play hard to get." Screen Media has debuted an official trailer for Ten Thousand Saints, from writers/directors Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini (of American Splendor, The Nanny Diaries, Girl Most Likely), starring Ethan Hawke and Asa Butterfield. Hawke plays an estranged father who suddenly "kidnaps" his emo-punk son and takes him to New York City, where he experiences a whole coming-of-age on the streets of Manhattan with new friends. The film is set in the 80's around the punk rock scene and it seems to have a killer soundtrack, of which many of the reviews quoted rave about. Hailee Steinfeld also stars along with Emile Hirsch and Emily Mortimer. They give away a lot (too much) in this trailer, but it actually looks pretty good. "Have you ever heard of punk?"

Screen Media has released the first trailer for American Splendor writers/directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s coming-of-age drama Ten Thousand Saints. Set in 1988, during the transitional period in New York City when the yuppies started buying up all the “bad” neighborhoods and transforming them into upscale real estate, the film stars Asa Butterfield as an unhappy, bored teenager from Vermont who—after an interaction with a girl—decides to move to New York City, closer to his burnout father (Ethan Hawke). He subsequently develops a closer relationship with said girl (played by Hailee Steinfeld), starts hanging around a straight edge band, and attempts to find himself. I caught the movie at Sundance earlier this year (click here for my review), and while Butterfield’s character is wholly uninteresting, the film’s saving grace is Ethan Hawke. The guy instantly makes any movie he’s in at least 30% better, »
