Things get hairy (and salivary) in "The Revenant," a 2015 20th Century Fox release.

Yap vs. Yap: The Revenant

In the latest Yap vs. Yap, Nick Rogers and Christopher Lloyd dress in layers of freshly cut fur, load their rifles and take aim at each other on "The Revenant."
Samuel L. Jackson stars in "The Hateful Eight," a 2015 Weinstein Company release and the latest from writer-director Quentin Tarantino.

The Hateful Eight

Untidy and unwieldy but also quite unforgettable, Quentin Tarantino's latest is both an enraged fireside chat and a tremendously entertaining Western.

Robert De Niro stars as master thief Neil McCauley in Michael Mann's landmark 1995 crime drama "Heat."

Class of 1995: ‘Heat’

Jennifer Lawrence stars as Joy Mangano, inventor of the Miracle Mop, in "Joy," a 2015 Twentieth Century Fox biopic loosely based on her life and co-written and directed by David O. Russell.

Joy

Geena Davis and Matthew Modine star in Renny Harlin's "Cutthroat Island," the notoriously unpopular 1995 film that once held the world record for most money lost by a film ($105 million).

Class of 1995: ‘Cutthroat Island’

“Cutthroat Island" isn't the landlubber suggested by its bad reputation. But if all involved knew they were going broke, they should have gone for broke.
The blurred line between reality and fiction plays havoc with the mind of insurance investigator John Trent (Sam Neill, center) in John Carpenter's 1995 horror film "In the Mouth of Madness," a New Line Cinema production.

Class of 1995: ‘In the Mouth of Madness’

Largely lost during the '90s' lap of luxury, John Carpenter's horror parable for a world whittling away until *you* are an abnormality hits close to home today.
