Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

Run Time: 1:15
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-04-12
MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Robert Wiene
Cast: Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, Friedrich Feher, Lil Dagover, Hans Heinrich von Twardowski, Rudolf Lettinger, Hans Lanser-Ludolff

The film’s imaginative approach offers an opportunity to explore the early roots of styles that were to become mainstream in Hollywood in the years and decades to follow.

"Destroyer" keeps the tone dark, eschewing anything resembling a traditional crime story and allowing Nicole Kidman's performance to take front stage.

Despite the occasionally uneven pacing and some dramatically inert moments, the historical elements mesh effectively with the fictionalized action-oriented ones.

Run Time: 1:48
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-04-23
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Adam Robitel
Cast: Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Deborah Ann Woll, Jay Ellis, Tyler Labine, Nik Dodani

During the final half hour, everything compelling about this low-budget thriller collapses in a miasma of idiocy.

Brand New to Video Views

Overlong, talky, filled with meta references, and with a strangely low-energy tone, the movie never fully gels.

This fantasy-adventure inspired by Arthurian legends, although entertaining for children in the age 8-12 bracket, may be a bore and a chore for adults.

Esoteric qualities don’t merit an unqualified recommendation for a production more apt to deliver frustration than gratification.

Although the lead character’s arc is troubled and conflicted, the ending makes her seem more like a superhero than the material warrants.

Run Time: 1:40
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-03-05
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity)
Genre: Documentary
Director: Jimmy Chin, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
Cast: Alex Honnold, Sanni McCandless, Jimmy Chin, Tommy Caldwell

Plays out with as much (or more) suspense than any conventional thriller as the cameras capture every step of the treacherous ascent.

McQueen achieves his aim of using a genre framework to advance serious themes, which makes "Widows" an uncommonly good thriller.
