Movie review: 'Survivor's Guide to Prison' shows a corrupt criminal justice system

Activist and filmmaker Matthew Cooke directs an anti-prison film under the rubric of a prison and justice system guidebook in the arresting documentary "Survivor's Guide to Prison." Actor, producer and former inmate Danny Trejo serves as a guide, along with Cooke, who offers his own direct commentary, fleshing out details and facts. A cavalcade of celebs join Trejo and Cooke, including Danny Glover, Ice-T, Tom Morello, Busta Rhymes, Questlove, Brandon Boyd, B-Real and others, who voice statistics and offer commentary. Susan Sarandon provides voice-over in this stylish and forthright film about the broken U.S. criminal justice system.

'Game Night's' Kyle Chandler game for comedy challenge

Kyle Chandler's new movie, "Game Night," has him playing the older half of a pair of siblings – the other portrayed by Jason Bateman – who have been competitive all their lives. The older brother has dominated their rivalry even to the point of changing what has been a rather mundane weekly get-together to play board and parlor games into a kidnap mystery game. The comedy comes from how that fake abduction turns real.

'Game Night' needed to take more Risk with comedy

There's no question the undisputed winner in the new comedy "Game Night" is the generally dependable Rachel McAdams. The infectious energetic and unfiltered exuberance she brings to the role of the super competitive Annie – one of a group of best friends who get together on a regular basis to play parlor and board games – turns what was little more than an extended episode of a television comedy series into more of a winning effort.
