Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie
The passage of time has dimmed its greatness while at the same time imbuing it with a nostalgic element that allows it to work today.
Combining such diverse genres as teen/high school romances, disaster movies, and ghost stories, "Your Name" covers a vast canvas.

"Sin Reaper" is proof that, no matter how bad you think a horror movie is, there’s always room for something worse. This is that “worse.”

The prioritization of highlighting moments of "Star Wars" lore over telling a compelling story makes "Solo" feel overlong and anticlimactic.
A poorly-designed heist leads to a surprisingly lackluster experience, unless you’re on hand primarily for the fun of seeing eight talented actresses interacting.
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-09-18
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Dino Carnage, Scenes of Peril, Violence, Profanity)
Director: J.A. Bayona
Cast: Chris Pratt, BD Wong, Ted Levine, James Cromwell, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, Rafe Spall, Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard, Isabella Sermon
"Fallen Kingdom" isn’t dino-myte. It’s dino doo-doo.
Despite drawbacks related to the casting of Keanu Reeves, "Siberia" is well-paced, offers instances of tension, and doesn’t cheat at the end.
For anyone who cares about the things that make horror worthwhile, "Truth or Dare" isn’t just a misfire, it’s a travesty.
Too dispiriting to be painful and too pointless to deserve the effort necessary for an additional word of opprobrium.
If there’s something less subtle than a sledgehammer, it applies here.
