Miscast and cratered with missed opportunity, I Saw the Light - a biopic of country-and-western legend Hank Williams - offers the feeblest kind of costume drama, where the costumes have more impact than the drama and where the period details serve only as distraction, reminding audiences that things looked different back then and not much else.
10 Cloverfield Lane From producer J.J. Abrams and Philly native Dan Trachtenberg, a wickedly clever nightmare entertainment (and spiritual offspring of 2008's Cloverfield), with Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a woman who wakes up shackled in some weird guy's underground bunker. John Goodman is that guy, John Gallagher Jr. is a fellow, um, guest, and the world outside ain't what it used to be. PG-13
The Bronze A story of small-town celebrity, of achievement and then not achieving anything at all, starring (and co-written by) Melissa Rauch, who plays a medal-winning gymnast who has spent the last decade chugging booze, snorting drugs, and hurling insults. And then she gets a chance at redemption. A mostly ferociously funny comedy, with Gary Cole, Thomas Middleditch, and Haley Lu Richardson. R
