3 Nights in the Desert 

A reunion of college estranged buddies offers unsurprising drama

Three former college buddies, who used to be a band that didn't quite make it big way back when, reunite around their 30th birthdays at a remote homestead in the California desert. And yes, there is alcohol consumed, and yes, over the three nights (and days), the usual score-settling of betrayals and revelations ensues. Gabriel Cowan's new drama doesn't break out of the truth-bombing-reunion genre to deliver anything new. It does get a point for adding a less-common "supernatural cave" element, but when the cave failed to eat any of these three rather tiresome characters, I took that point away.
