"The Devil's Backbone" Criterion Collection
What's It About? With 2001's "The Devil's Backbone," writer-director Guillermo del Toro declared himself a true master of contemporary horror. Set at the end of the Spanish Civil War, the story follows 12-year-old Carlos (Fernando Tielve) who is sent to a orphanage after his father dies in the war. Carlos soon discovers the school at the orphanage is haunted when he begins having visions of a ghostly being
Why We're IN: Guillermo del Toro fuses genres in "The Devil's Backbone" to create a work that is both innovative and an homage cinema. With superb performances, cinematography, and a suspenseful script "The Devil's Backbone" is a poetic entry to the horror genre that is one of the filmmaker's best.

"Between Us"
What's It About? Dan Mirvish's dark comedy-drama "Between Us" follows two hateful married couples as they reunite over two visits. While on the first visit Carlo (Taye Diggs) and Grace (Julia Stiles) are a happy, middle-class couple and Sharyl (Melissa George) and Joel (David Harbour) are wealthy and bitter, the tables turn upon their second encounter. While this mess of a movie attempts to echo "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" it fails in its forgettable writing and performances.

"Filly Brown"
What's It About? A typical music industry cautionary tale, "Filly Brown" tells the story of a young female hip-hop artist who loses her identity for fame. While the cast -- including Edward James Olmos, Lou Diamond Phillips, Emilo Rivera, and newcomer Gina Rodriguez -- give passionate performances, "Filly Brown" fails to climb past its many cliches.

"G.I. Joe: Retaliation"
What's It About? This sequel follows Duke (Channing Tatum) and his team of Joes, including Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson) and Gen. Colton (Bruce Willis), as they fight their enemy Team Cobra and threats from within their government.

"Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox"
What's It About? In this direct-to-DVD animated film the whole DC universe is altered by a trip into the past. When The Flash goes back in time to right a wrong done against his mother he comes to find that Superman no longer exists, Batman is a bitter Dark Knight, and a war is waging between Wonder Woman and Aquaman. The film features voices from Justin Chambers, Thomas C. Howell, Kevin Conroy, and Dana Delany. This is a must-see for any DC fan
IN or OUT: IN.

What's It About? Billy (Josh Henderson) and Sarah (Haley Webb) are teenage delinquent lovers who find themselves in trouble when they try to wrongfully claim a Texas inheritance. This neo-noir thriller also stars Aidan Quinn as an estate lawyer and Beau Bridges as his brother and the small town sheriff. While "Rushlights" has many twists, the film feels like an underwhelming Tarantino knock-off.

"Bus Stop"
What's It About?
Joshua Logan's ("Camelot") 1965 adaptation of William Inge's Broadway comedy of the same name stars Marilyn Monroe as Cherie, a nightclub singer. When a stubborn who is cowboy (Don Murray) falls in love with her, he kidnaps her in a effort to get her to marry him and live on his ranch. The film earned Murray an Oscar nomination and served as a reminder (as if any more are needed) why Monroe was such a compelling force on screen.

"The Fog"
What's It About? John Carpenter's ("Halloween") 1980 horror classic "The Fog" takes place in a California fishing community built over an old leper colony 100 year prior. A fog filled with zombies seeking revenge targets the community in this film filled with creepy, atmospheric suspense that remains an eerie and innovative addition to the genre today.
IN or OUT: IN.

"The Incredible Melting Man"
What's It About? William Sach's ("Galaxia") 1977 film tells the very gross story of an astronaut who turns into a gelatinous mass after completing a mission that kills the rest of his crew. The remainder of his space voyage consists of him hunting down humans for meals which help him fight the pain of his condition. This incredibly low-budget, campy sci-fi film is nothing but tacky, disgusting, and utterly corny. "The Incredible Melting Man" is hardly a film to be enjoyed by the biggest of camp lovers.

What's It About? In this 1953 thriller from Henry Hathaway ("True Grit") Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotton star as Rose and George Loomis, a troubled married couple caught up in jealousy and infidelity. When another couple (Jean Peters and Casey Allen) arrive at their room at the Niagara Falls they find that the Loomis's have yet to check out. The two couples become intertwined as tensions amount to murderous obsessions in this noir. While none of the cast's best film, "Niagara Falls" is nonetheless an enjoyable classic thriller.
IN or OUT: IN.

"Peggy Sue Got Married"
What's It About? Francis Ford Coppola's 1986 "Peggy Sue For Married" stars Kathleen Turner as a housewife struggling in her troubled marriage with Nicholas Cage's Charlie. However, when she goes to her high school reunion she is shot back in time to her high school days in the 1960s. Coppola's charming film is deeply enjoyable for its humor, touching performances, and feel good nature.
