Jake Gyllenhaal in 'Road House'

It’s been 35 years since Patrick Swayze first taught us that pain don’t hurt, and now Jake Gyllenhaal takes up that muscular mantle with Amazon Prime Video’s Road House remake (streaming now). Director Doug Liman transplants the action from Missouri to the Florida Keys, where the beaches may be breezy, but the punches are brutal: Gyllenhaal’s UFC-fighter-turned-bouncer Dalton hits, kicks, and pummels any sleazy bad guys who are unlucky enough to cross his path. (Pro fighter Conor McGregor also chews scenery — and noses — as an unhinged mob enforcer.) It’s bloody, bone-crunching, and a total blast. Devan Coggan, Senior Writer

Kacey Musgraves

A return to Golden Hour form after the experimental Star-Crossed, Musgraves’ latest traces her journey back to the self after divorce — quelling even the most disquieted listener, transporting them to a tranquil cabin in the heart of the woods.

'Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster'

The 1995 first-person shooter video game has been cleaned up and smoothed out, but the old school fun remains — including appearances from Darth Vader, Mon Mothma, and the man with the absolute worst haircut in the entire galaxy, General Crix Madine. (Out now) Dalton Ross, Editor at Large
