"Ready or Not": As this darkly comic film starts, Grace (Samara Weaving) and Alex (Mark O'Brien) have just been married in his family's palatial estate. He has been estranged from his filthy-rich relatives for years and makes good with everybody in time for the ceremony. On their wedding night, Grace is told that she has to gather with the extended family for game night, a customary event anytime somebody new joins the ranks. Unfortunately for Grace, she randomly selects for the group to play hide-and-seek, kicking off a no-holds-barred chase that requires any member of the family to hunt and kill the person who drew this unlucky card. If you enjoyed the home invasion thriller "You're Next" a few years ago, be sure to add this one to your queue. The screenplay is razor-sharp, and every member of the cast seems like they're having a blast. Weaving, whom you will be forgiven for mistaking for fellow Australian actress Margot Robbie, excels in a role that would be considered "the final girl" in a simpler horror film. She has to creatively dodge people who are essentially strangers to her in a massive mansion she has never visited before and work to outsmart them if she is going to survive. It's a pure delight to see Andie MacDowell show up as Alex's mother and for Adam Brody to appear as his alcoholic brother. Clever, funny and more than a little bit gory, this sophomore feature from co-directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett is a pleasant surprise in every way.

"Mike Wallace Is Here": Mike Wallace, the iconic hard-hitting reporter who worked for decades on "60 Minutes," passed away in 2012. He was one of the best-known journalists in the history of television. Starting in a time where most Americans only had a few channels to choose from and decades before partisan opinion shows began passing as news, he was known for conducting interviews that were often difficult for the guest. Director Avi Belkin wanted to pay tribute to this work in a documentary and after a few years of trying, he was given unprecedented access to the CBS News archives to begin crafting the film. After sorting through over 1,400 hours of footage, we get to see previously unseen clips combined with some truly outstanding highlights from over 50 years’ worth of groundbreaking interview footage with many of the most important figures in modern American history.
