Rogue One [AKA Rogue One: A Star Wars Story] (2016, dir. Gareth Edwards)

A small group of rebels try to steal the plans to the Death Star. Superior side mission from the Star Wars universe, answering a small plot question from the 1977 movie. By no means essential, but nevertheless rousing space opera fun, and lovingly designed.

XXX: Return of Xander Cage (2016, dir. DJ Caruso)

Cage is re-recruited to find a satellite-crashing McGuffin. Self-aware but still dumb-as-rocks threequel, tooled after the latter Fast and Furious flicks in its teenage lad-friendly collision of heists, chases, and bikinis. Toni Collette camps it up in support.
