It’s not usually a board game-inspired movie that turns into a cult classic, but that’s exactly what happened when Jonathan Lynn took the job as director. Clue, a 1985 dark comedy mystery film starring Colleen Camp, Tim Curry, Michael McKean, and Madeline Kahn. Co-written by John Landis (The Blues . Brothers, American Werewolf in London), Lynn’s adaptation is also hilarious because it’s subversively renewed, featuring three different endings shown separately during the original theatrical run, with audiences arguing over the “right” ending. in one Rashomon-like viewing experience. While subsequent home releases of the film include all three alternate endings, Clue still sharp and humorous of a murder mystery parody as the day it was released. —Toussaint Egan

The Mighty Quinn
Before Denzel Washington was one of our all-time great movie stars, he brought all-time great movie star energy into disposable horror movies. The Mighty Quinnbased on the 1971 pulp novel by AHZ Carr Find Maubeebut re-emerged with a title excerpted from a Bob Dylan song, it wouldn’t be a much-recommended murder mystery without the two-time Oscar-winning actor – despite the script from Blade Runner writer Hampton Fancher, the ski slope is quite pedestrian. But Washington has to work every muscle when Xavier Quinn, the sheriff of a made-up Caribbean island, is investigating his own best friend Maubee (Robert Townsend) after a resort owner nursing a dead millionaire. Tracing the killer’s trail, Quinn interrogates witnesses, runs home to pick up his children, steps out of an attractive woman, tries to mend a fractured relationship with his step-wife. his cold, and dodged enough bullets to earn the title of “mighty”. As a result, Washington combines muscle with charm, complacent power with anxiety in the head, and a calculated sense of island dynamics. Powered by Michael Rose reggae, The Mighty Quinn is a flashy 90-minute film with a 1970s crime setting, set against the backdrop of beauty with an equally mesmerizing presence on screen. For some of us, it’s the ideal vacation. —Matt Patches

West story is a subversive reminder that racial tensions are nothing new in America. But it’s also an upbeat, colorful, catchy musical that portrays Romeo and Juliet as a mid-’50s confrontation between a white street gang and a Puerto Rican gang in New York City. Sure, tougher movies about anti-immigrant violence and stereotypes have been made, but the reality is that all of these things were such a part of 1960s American life they were telling. for the singles to have fun. West story of Let’s frankly look at racism and the barriers to the American dream that are still bold to this day, even though some of them are outdated, especially the white actors who wear leather. brown to play Puerto Rican characters. But its public acknowledgment of the shallowness and destructive power of racism is still poignant, and the songs and elaborate dance performances are still winning. – Tasha Robinson
