Genre: Animated
Director: Isao Takahata

The timeless quality of the story and animation make it as much a pleasure to see on the second or third time as it is on the first.

MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence)
Genre: Drama

Epic in scope and respectful in presentation, it makes up for any factual inaccuracies with the depth and power of its characterization.

Run Time: 1:58
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-10-22
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated/Adventure
Director: Jon Favreau
Cast: Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Beyoncé, James Earl Jones, Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, Alfre Woodard

Although it qualifies as solid entertainment for a 2019 family with its technically superior look, the film struggles mightily to find the magic that came so easily to its predecessor.

Run Time: 1:28
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-10-15
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Profanity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Alexandre Aja
Cast: Kaya Scodelario, Barry Pepper

An old-fashioned B-grade monster movie made with 2019 technology.

The movie doesn’t do anything well and it’s an open question why anyone would pay money to see a reworking of a premise that offers so little.

Run Time: 3:57
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-07-28
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Edward Yang
Cast: Chen Chang, Lisa Yang, Kuo-Chu Chang, Elaine Jin, Chi-tsan Wang, Chih-Kang Tan

With its sprawling tapestry and mini-series length, Edward Yang’s 1991 gangster drama deserves the label of "epic" and warrants comparison to Francis Ford Coppola’s "The Godfather."

It remains funny (at times uproarious), romantic, honest, and touching – all the kinds of things one wants from a smart rom-com that refuses to be guided by the genre’s tropes.

Run Time: 1:39
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-09-22
MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Thriller
Director: Robert Bresson
Cast: Francois Leterrier, Charles Le Clainche, Maurice Beerblock, Roland Monod, Jacques Ertaud

Doesn’t embody the standards nor incorporate the tropes one associates with escape films yet, in its own quiet, insistent way, it’s as good or better than most of them.

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-09-25
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Nudity, Sexual Content, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Robert Benton
Cast: Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Jane Alexander, Justin Henry, Howard Duff, George Coe, JoBeth Williams

Contains all the elements of good, deep drama; believable acting and strong, down-to-earth writing allow the characters’ relationships to come to the fore.
