Kudos to Alicia Silverstone of “The Crush” for wedging a rare, female-senior May-December romance into a really weird movie. “Last Survivors” (2022) starts out as a typical, post-apocalyptic action flick. Then, after a brief visit to the Twilight Zone and boudoir, it becomes a typical woman-in-danger flick, complete with incompetent cops and big misunderstandings. All because some crazy dad decided to take young Tom Brady into the woods and turn him into Alaska Tarzan. Silverstone is also crazy, and also dealing with some family drama by not dealing with some family drama, but not in a homicidal sort of way.

John Goodman, I was counting on you. “10 Cloverfield Lane” (2016) had all the makings of an incredibly stupid horror flick, but I trusted you. I mean, you wouldn’t waste your time making one of those movies, would you? It turns out that the main characters need to trust him, too. Or maybe they’re being held captive against their will by a conspiracy nut who comes off like a 55-year-old Zach Galifianakis without his meds. So, do you trust him? For those of you who remember “The Twilight Zone” (the TV show, not the film), this would fit right in.
