John Goodman is savior then psycho in the creepy “10 Cloverfield Lane”

JJ Abrams reminds us of his last thriller “Cloverfield”(2008), but luckily in title only! Abrams’ new film “10 Cloverfield Lane” is a thriller starring John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. that will have you guessing until the final minutes of the film. JJ shows he is a fan of the classic Twilight Zone series with this new film that is character driven with a strong twist.

Michelle (Winstead), running away from a troubled relationship (boyfriend’s voice is Bradley Cooper) packing her stuff and leaving behind keys and an engagement ring. Michelle is hit from behind driving her car off the road. She wakes up in a concrete room with a cut on her forehead, an IV in her arm and a brace on her knee that is handcuffed to the wall!

Tina Fey Goes to war only equipped with a camera in “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”

Tina Fey stars as Kim Baker, a TV news producer in New York that gets a chance to go in front of the camera by taking an assignment covering the war in Afghanistan. “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” also stars Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina and Billy Bob Thornton in this film based upon the autobiography,  “The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan” by Kim Barker.

Baker takes on what was suppose to be a 6 month job reporting on hostility in Afghanistan that gives her an opportunity to go in front of the camera. The first few months Baker learns the ropes from the only other woman reporter Tanya Vanderpool (Robbie), where to party, who to hook up with and most of all that Kim is a 9.5 on the Afghan scale (where she is only a six back in America). Kim and Tanya are embedded with a troop of Marines led by General Hollanek (Billy Bob Thornton) and he tells Kim to stay away from his marines and not to give them any “jobs” of any kind.
