Published Jul 07, 2010If you're looking to stay inside this week with a stack of movies, head over to the Exclaim! Recently Reviewed motion section to find out which flicks are worthy of passing the time.
First up is Breck Eisner's remake of legendary director George A. Romero's The Crazies, starring Timothy Olyphant as a sheriff who battles evil in a small farming town. If low-budget, '80s sci-fi flicks are more up your alley, there's Forbidden World, produced by the infamous Roger Corman.
Nostalgia strikes with Hot Tub Time Machine, a comedy that parodies the '80s and brings back stars like Chevy Chase, Crispin Glover and John Cusak. Also in comedy is Our Family Wedding, a take-off on the 1967 classic Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?. The new version stars America Ferrera and Forest Whitaker.
For those who enjoy watching people struggle through personal issues and mounds of junk, Hoarders: The Complete Season One is out on DVD. Be prepared to see everything from expired food to mummified cats. For fans of the '90s series Twin Peaks, the second season of Durham County has been released and revolves around the murders of two teenage girls in a small town.
Lastly, though not appropriate to call The Eclipse a horror movie, Irish director Conor McPherson reveals human interaction, grief, and social insecurity in this dramatic, yet sometimes creepy, film. And in Music DVD reviews, Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, explores the Canadian rock band's longevity and success. Bonuses include never-before-seen footage, the band's pre-gig warm-up routine and many performances.
