The Rental, experience. Looking for a weekend escape from the big city, Michelle and Charlie (Alison Brie and Dan Stevens) and Josh and Mina (Jeremy Allen White and Sheila Vand) book a tricked-out cabin in the woods. But simmering tensions between the four — including a romantic attraction between Charlie and Mina, and brotherly resentment between Josh and Charlie — conspire to put a damper on the fun. It doesn’t help that strange things are present in the rental… things like hidden cameras in the shower and a creepy housekeeper (Toby Huss) who keeps a too-close eye on the place. Co-written by Franco and mumblecore master, Joe Swanberg, The Rental studiously tightens the tension for the first hour before going on a serious third-act rampage. While the movie sometimes put the “slow” in “slow burn,” Franco gets strong performances from the central quartet — including his real-life wife, Brie — and the closing moments will have you checking the closets at your next Airbnb rental. — Ethan Alter” data-reactid=”34″>Think you’ve had Airbnb horror stories?

But what gem of a release it is, giving listeners the opportunity to soak up the films’ emotionally rich, variant and textured compositions as standalone triumphs. — K.P.” data-reactid=”69″>Alan Silvestri may be one of the most underrated composers working in Hollywood today. As Rotten Tomatoes pointed out, despite working on 17 Robert Zemeckis movies, he’s only been nominated for one: Best Original Score Oscar (for Forrest Gump). But Silvestri certainly caught the attention — or at least ears — of Marvel fans with his supersonic contributions to the MCU, starting with Captain America: The First Avenger. In expanding its impressive collection of vinyl soundtracks, Mondo has dropped Silvestri’s two most epic MCU scores yet — Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame — in a double-album, six-plate set that, we should warn you, is about as heavy as the Infinity Gauntlet.
