 American Sniper

U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname "Legend". However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. ... Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to "leave no one behind."

Imitation Game
During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency’, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality – little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany's World War II Enigma machine. ...  --amazon--

Orange is the new black

“Orange is the New Black: Season Two” is stronger, overall, than Season One. There is a lot more concentration on relationships, since regular characters have already been introduced. Because the role of Alex (Laura Prepon) is downplayed, more screen time is allocated to other, more interesting characters. This is a definite improvement, as the Alex/Piper scenes dominated Season One and became tiresome. A great addition to Season Two is Lorraine Toussaint as Vee, an intimidating new “bad guy” among the prison family.
