(2002) Involving thriller in which a divorced woman (Jodie Foster) and her teenage daughter (Kristen Stewart) hide out in a secret room of their New York City brownstone trying to outsmart three intruders (including Forest Whitaker) aiming to retrieve a hidden stockpile of cash left by the previous owner. A few nifty twists, a sprinkling of spicy humor, and some splendid camera work add up to a better-than-average thriller from director David Fincher, who deftly builds tension without sacrificing story. Some violence with much menace, fleeting drug use, and recurring rough language with brief profanity.  (A-III -- adults)  (R -- restricted) Showtime (cable)

Saturday, May 4, 7-9:30 p.m. The Predator. (2018) The sixth film appearance of the eponymous creature from outer space, directed and co-written by Shane Black, features predictable mayhem and bloodshed, but also unwelcome vulgarity and tasteless humor, making this questionable viewing even for grown-ups. An army ranger (Boyd Holbrook) encounters the creature and steals its helmet and armor, which are decoded by his autistic son (Jacob Tremblay). An invasion is imminent, and the ranger cobbles together a ragtag group of veterans (Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Alfie Allen, Augusto Aguilera and Trevante Rhodes) and a scientist (Olivia Munn) to save the planet, while a government agent (Sterling K. Brown) has other plans. Graphic bloody violence and gore, images of full nudity, vulgar sexual humor, pervasive profane and crude language.  (L -- limited adult audience) (R -- restricted) HBO (cable)
