We're always up for a good Sci-Fi Thriller set in space, and especially when it involves the gorgeous Caity Lotz. Brandon Routh and Dane Cook might be a bit hard to take though. Still looks cool.
Rent it if you like Sci-Fi flicks or Caity Lotz.
Black Mass wasn't the epic gangster flick that we expected it to be (we wanted something close to The Departed, and it wasn't quite that), but it was a solid effort with some great performances, so we were happy with it overall. Johnny Depp was lights-out in this one.
Rent it for Johnny Depp's performance alone.
The first Contracted wasn't that great (read our review HERE), and the sequel looks just about as good, which isn't saying much.
Skip it, unless you liked the first movie, then Rent it, I guess.
A fun, kid-friendly movie based on the popular 90's TV show, Goosebumps is... a frigging kids movie. What more can we really say? Rent accordingly.
Rent it if you have kids, or if you're feeling nostalgic.
Howl isn't going to change the Genre or anything, but overall it's a well-made and entertaining Werewolf flick that boasts some good gore; some cool monster VFX; and a solid cast, most of whom we rooted for. For fans of Werewolf flicks, this is a fun and gory ride that is definitely worth taking. Read our review for the full scoop.
Rent it if you like werewolves or trains.
A Home Invasion flick with a Revenge Thriller bent, Intruders looks promising enough. At least we're familiar with the acting work of Rory Culkin (he's pretty good) and Martin Starr (and he's pretty funny), so maybe they'll bring something to this one, and it will surprise us
This is the one VOD release this week that we're genuinely excited to see.
The critics shit all over this one, and it pretty much bombed at the domestic Box Office, but hey, it's Vin Diesel hunting witches through time... can it really be that bad?
Rent it, and enjoy its cheesy, Vin Diesel-fueled goodness.
