Available today is Jack Goes Home is written and directed by Thomas Dekker, a beautiful young man perhaps best known for his role as the teenaged John Connor in The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Here, he has persuaded Rory Culkin and Britt Robertson (his co-star from The Secret Circle) to star in his indie thriller. It really is who you know…

ON DVD, BLU-RAY AND STREAMING

The bizarrely pointless but somehow compelling Independence Day Resurgence, starring Liam Hemswoeth, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum and other people who should have known better.

Happy viewing! Until next week in geek…
