    10 Cloverfield Lane

    ★★★½

    It’s basically a Twilight Zone episode, but it’s a good one; and Goodman gives a fantastic performance.

  • Mascots

    Mascots

    ★★½

    Mascots isn’t as good as Guest’s early mockumentaries or as his series Family Tree, but thankfully, it is funnier than For Your Consideration.  Tom Bennett is the standout.

    ★★★

    The feature film debut of Key & Peele is a sporadically hilarious action comedy, co-starring the cutest kitten on the face of the Earth.  While parts are stronger than the whole, this is a very promising debut from the likeable pair.  Hopefully, many more movies are to come.

    Cutter's Way

    ★★★★★

    The best mysteries aren't about the mystery.  They're about ideas, mood, and, most of all, strong characters.  CUTTER'S WAY is not only a great neo-noir mystery, it is a under-seen masterpiece.  Bone (Jeff Bridges) is a unmotivated gigolo who accidentally witnesses the dumping of a dead body.  When he tells his best friend Cutter (John Heard, in a career-best performance), a one-eyed, one-armed, one-legged Vietnam vet, that he thinks that a powerful oil man committed the crime, the antagonistic veteran sees it as his opportunity to take down "the man."  Great writing, acting, music, and cinematography combine to make CUTTER'S WAY a unforgettable experience.
