For as well loved as Zombie is and the cult following it has garnered in the 40 years since its release, I still was genuinely surprised because more often than not, I usually am disappointed in these kinds of movies.
Maniac may not be a favorite of mine nor do I hold it in as high regard as others, but there is certainly something to admire from Joe Spinell creepy performance to appreciation of some of the technical aspects of Tom Savini’s effects work.
Glengarry Glen Ross, after all these years still holds up so well, with sharp, pointed dialogue that only David Mamet can write without coming across as pretentious. Beyond that, top notch performances all around, especially Jack Lemmon.
Brahms: The Boy II is a sludge of a sequel to get through and while I didn’t care much for the first movie, this one somehow manages to be even worse, a dull film with very few, if any, redeeming qualities.
The Curse of the Werewolf is an odd film from Hammer productions as the main star, Oliver Reed, doesn’t even show up until about halfway through and the titular werewolf until the final 10-minutes. Still, when we do see the werewolf, the make-up effects were pretty impressive.

The Postcard Killings is a movie that I would’ve lost any interest in if not for a respectable cast, led way by Jeffrey Dean Morgan and the film at least did have a couple twists, though the final act it does lose quite a bit of steam.
Days of Thunder isn’t a great racing film and rather low in the rankings amongst both Tom Cruise and Tony Scott’s resume, but the scenes of the actual races were pretty good and as a whole, was entertaining enough.
Sonic the Hedgehog might not be top-tier family entertainment but even as someone who doesn’t quite have the same sort of nostalgia, I still found it to be a lot of fun, mostly to an almost old-school performance from Jim Carrey.
Top Gun is a wildly entertaining action-romance featuring the ever so charming Tom Cruise, surrounded by a solid supporting cast including McGinnis, Edwards and Kilmer, directed by the late Tony Scott.
The Photograph, a drama from the director of The Weekend, features two charming leads in LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae, albeit the story itself is on the slow side. The Blu-ray/DVD is available on May 12th.
