Contemporary adult drama with fantasy elements can be a tricky combination (especially when Christmas themes or supernatural menaces aren’t involved) but when done correctly the resonating results can be magical. Thirty years ago, that was the case with Field of Dreams, a poignant crowdpleaser about fathers and sons told in the rhythms of baseball and second chances. Continue here

The road to another excellent adventure continues. Bill & Ted Face the Music has cast Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving as the daughters of the titular dudes. Lundy-Paine, who has appeared in The Glass Castle and Netflix’s Atypical, will play Billie Logan, daughter of Ted “Theodore” Logan (Keanu Reeves). Weaving, whose credits include Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, will take the role of Bill S. Preston Esquire’s (Alex Winter) daughter Thea. Based on those names, it appears the pair named their daughters after each other, which is perfect. Continue here

In a varied, versatile and accomplished decades-spanning career, Winona Ryder has proven herself in a wealth of different films — both big and small. While the actress is currently celebrating a career resurgence with the incredible commercial success of Netflix’s Stranger Things, the truth of the matter is that Winona Ryder has always been great, even if she wasn’t always recognized for her commendable acting capabilities. Nevertheless, we wanted to take a moment to recognize the movies that have showcased Winona Ryder’s strong suits throughout a longstanding Hollywood career. Continue here

Road House is celebrating its 30th birthday. It’s one of the most ridiculous films ever made. In Road House’s world, skilled bouncers are not just well-regarded by their peers – they’re living legends, mythologized and revered in shouts and whispers. And they aren’t just skilled fighters – the best of the best is capable of executing what can only be described as a Mortal Kombat fatality. A corrupt businessman doesn’t just strongarm people – he commands a goddamn monster truck to level their businesses (and aside from its use in impromptu building demolition, Road House’s monster truck is apparently perfect for discreetly spying on people) The businessman’s gang of goons don’t just work for him for the paycheck – they revel in their evil. His second-in-command actually stops to laugh maniacally after blowing up a kindly farmer’s house. To deny that Road House is deeply goofy would be ridiculous. And to deny that Road House is really, really well-crafted and features some genuinely great action would be like saying Mad Max: Fury Road is slow-moving and lacks momentum.

The Grinder never settles, but he is willing to reunite with an old friend. Rob Lowe — who starred with Fred Savage in the short-lived, underappreciated 2015-2016 comedy The Grinder — will team up with his former castmate on Fox again for an episode of Savage’s summer series, What Just Happened??!, EW has learned.
