Winner of the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, “American Fiction” is a sharp, funny story about an acclaimed black novelist whose latest manuscript is rejected for not being “black enough.” Thelonious “Monk” Ellison (Jeffrey Wright) then decides to get back at them by writing a stereotypically “black” story as a joke – only for the publishers to be delighted over his latest book. While the book he hates becomes highly successful, Monk struggles with his family and romantic issues at home. It’s a layered and wildly entertaining film that marks the directorial debut of Emmy-winning “Watchmen” and “Succession” writer Cord Jefferson. , adam chitwood

“Road House”

Who knew a glossy “Road House” remake would be so controversial? The new film, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as former UFC fighter replacing Patrick Swayze as a “cooler” in a dirty street bar in Florida, has been surrounded by scandal – leading to producer Joel Silver being removed from the project. Ranging from director Doug Liman publicly claiming in a recent lawsuit that the film used AI voice reproduction during the writers’ strike as a way to prevent copyright expiration, due to Amazon’s lack of theatrical release. Distanced himself from the film in protest. Honestly, none of this really matters, given how good the first trailer was, how charming the supporting cast is (including Jessica Williams, Daniela Melchior, Billy Magnussen, and Conor McGregor) and the originals over the years. How famous has the film become? We can’t wait to visit “Road House,” controversy be damned. , drew taylor

five nights at freddy’s

“Five Nights at Freddy’s,” a video game adaptation, is a film that asks the age-old question: What if Chuck E. Cheese’s or Showbiz Pizza were haunted by the spirits of dead children? Part of the fun of the film is showcasing the inherent weirdness of those irritating audio-animatronics that play music while sugar-fueled kids play skee-ball. And this is especially true because Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, responsible for the characters in “The Dark Crystal” and the earlier “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (actually the height of Chuck E. Cheese’s), is creating the animatronics for this film. Came with animals. And there’s also a very intriguing mystery at its heart, as a beleaguered security guard (Josh Hutcherson) works to uncover the truth behind a series of disappearances that are somehow connected to Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. It’s a scary dilapidated pizza joint. Plus, it’s one of those PG-13 horror movies that still has enough edge to please every nightmare lover in your family. , drew taylor

batman returns

Warner Bros.

Tim Burton’s 1992 sequel is one of the best, boldest and sexiest Batman movies ever made – and it remains pretty damn good. “Batman Returns” is a better follow-up to Burton’s 1989 hit, with Michael Keaton reprising his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Michelle Pfeiffer is wonderful as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, the character serving as a fascinating mirror of Bruce Wayne’s own duality and more violent path towards vigilantism. It also features Danny DeVito’s growling penguin, and perhaps Christopher Walken’s most terrifying businessman, Max Shreck. With a Christmas setting and Burton pushing the Gothic aesthetic to its extreme, this is one of the best Batman movies ever made. , adam chitwood
