MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Romance
Director: Ry Russo-Young
Cast: Yara Shahidi, Charles Melton, John Leguizamo

Although devoid of sophistication, the frothy love story may win over viewers who are predisposed to enjoy this sort of entertainment.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Wayne Roberts
Cast: Johnny Depp, Rosemarie DeWitt, Danny Huston, Zoey Deutch, Ron Livingston, Odessa Young

Presumably, director Wayne Roberts wants to say something profound but the message is muddled and the means by which it is presented are confused.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (War Violence)
Genre: Drama
Director: Dome Karukoski
Cast: Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins, Derek Jacobi, Colm Meaney, Harry Gilby, Patrick Gibson, Anthony Boyle, Tom Glynn-Carney

More like the dramatization of an Encyclopedia Britannica entry than a fully rendered movie, "Tolkien" loses sight of the character.

U.S. Release Date: 2019-05-10
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Director: Rob Letterman
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Howard Clifford, Ken Watanabe, Chris Geere

This isn’t a movie, it’s a cog in a multibillion-dollar media empire, a soulless feature-length example of product placement at its most blatant.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: AJ Jankel
Cast: Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger, Emun Elliott, Gregor Selkirk, Lauren Lyle, Kate Dickie

The framing of characters is black-and-white and the far-too-pat ending offers an unearned resolution.

Run Time: 1:40
U.S. Release Date: 2019-05-03
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Profanity)
Genre: Documentary
Director: Ryan White
Cast: Ruth Westheimer

Because the movie never loses its focus and allows Ruth Westheimer’s charisma to remain front-and-center, this is an effective and sometimes surprising mini-biography.
