  • Gay filmmaker Elegance Bratton’s feature-length debut “The Inspection” (A24) lets viewers know from the start that it’s “inspired by a true story.”

  • Based on the novel by gay writer Grant Ginder, the best way to describe the painfully unfunny movie version of “The People We Hate at the Wedding” is to say that it’s one of those movies that makes you feel less horrible about your own family.

  • For a while there, 21st-century movie adaptations of Broadway musicals were being given the Rob Marshall treatment.

  • “The True Adventures of Wolfboy” (Vertical Entertainment), the feature-length directorial debut of Martin Krejcí is a trans parable about self-acceptance and finding community.

By combining elements from classic modern horror influences, from Polanski to Peele, and adding some specifically queer twists, “Spiral” has the potential to make your head spin — in a good way.

While those places all had their pluses and minuses, there are two new pizza places in Fort Lauderdale that are following a new business model. These restaurants are similar to many, such as the California-based chain Pieology, which follow the same format as Subway and Chipotle; you step up to the counter and pick the ingredients from fresh selections on display. The pizza is assembled right in front of you, popped into a super-heated oven and within 10 minutes, you’ve got your own personal pizza creation in front of you.
