Color Out of Space might not have been completely my cup of tea as I prefer a more traditional horror, but I can acknowledge some of the creativity and there were a few great moments that presumably Lovecraft fans will appreciate.
Conceptually Maggie actually isn’t a terrible idea and manages to distinguish itself with the plethora of zombie films that have permeated the cinema marketplace and only grew more popular with “The Walking Dead.” Still, for all the flaws with the screenplay and a WTF casting of Schwarzenegger, this might be worth a rental.
Return to Me is somewhat of an underrated and overlooked romantic-drama-comedy and in spite of the surprising casting of David Duchovny in the typical male lead role, the movie really works from beginning to end the he and Driver actually have good chemistry with one another. The supporting cast is also impressive from James Belushi to veterans like Robert Loggia and Carroll O’Connor.
Endless Love actually isn’t a terrible film (not exactly the highest praise, I know) where the two leads at least have some good chemistry and Bruce Greenwood is a lot of fun even if his character becomes a caricature by the end. It’s the typical love story seen numerous time (Footloose also has the same basic premise) but it’s not all bad and at least watchable if not also safe and forgettable.
Anonymous is a compelling drama that I think would’ve been better received if Roland Emmerich’s name wasn’t attached. Even so, it does feature some fine performances (especially by Rhys Ifans) while the costume design was particularly impressive. I can’t quite recommend a blind purchase but if you’re interested in the subject and/or time period, it might be worth a rental.
