Superfly (2018, dir. Director X)

A Georgia drug dealer tries for one last score to get out of the life. Okay remake/reprise that’s more style than substance, too often simply presenting the genre tropes than doing much useful with them. Some interesting moments, though, and a good Morris Day joke.

The First Purge (2018, dir. Gerard McMurray)

Staten Island is chosen as a Purge trial zone; residents have to fight to survive the night. Effective prequel (and fourth in the series), upping the social commentary and overtly satiric elements while drawing also on blaxploitation and action/horror tropes. Perhaps the best in the series yet.
