Bridge of Spies stars Tom Hanks, is directed by Steven Spielberg, and co-written by the Coen brothers. Alice highly recommends this movie, and says it's a good thriller that is historically accurate.

Goosebumps is a live-action movie based on the creatures from all the R.L. Stine books. Jack Black stars as a fictionalized version of the reclusive author, and Alice says he keeps the movie from derailing into complete silliness. All in all, she recommends this as a good family film for all ages.

Steve Jobs is the second movie to come out in recent years about the eccentric late genius, and Alice says this one is more true to life and completely overshadows the first one. Michael Fassbender stars as Steve Jobs, Aaron Sorkin wrote the screenplay, and Danny Boyle directed the movie. Alice predicts Oscar nominations in the future for Steve Jobs.
