One of the wonderful elements of Captain America: Civil War was its setup of T’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman) backstory.

The movie was #1 at the box office but made just $36 million. Here’s my spoiler-free take on why Alien: Covenant is worth the price of admission (CinemAddicts listeners – I’m giving this movie four and a half stars!).
