Suffers from a massive narrative condensation that not only mutes the film’s emotional impact but creates an erratic tone.

A glimpse of The Zombie Apocalypse according to hipster director Jim Jarmusch and actor Bill Murray (with all that entails).

A lackluster, hard-to-swallow police procedural with soap opera-ish subplots and flat characters.

A pointless retread with nothing to recommend it beyond Ian McShane’s commanding presence.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-07-30
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Deon Taylor
Cast: Dennis Quaid, Meagan Good, Michael Ealy, Joseph Sikora, Alvina August

The problem with "The Intruder," as with its antecedents, is a combination of narrative predictability and character stupidity.

There’s a point at which the “more of the same” mantra changes to “been there, done that.”

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.

Run Time: 2:00
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-08-27
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Joe Talbot
Cast: Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Danny Glover, Tichina Arnold, Rob Morgan, Mike Epps, Jamal Trulove

Even though Talbot opts for a quasi-humorous approach to the subject matter, the comedic edge can’t hide an underlying sadness about what this all means.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Tina Gordon Chism
Cast: Marsai Martin, Issa Rae, Regina Hall

If it wasn’t for the charisma and screen presence of 13-year old Marsai Martin, "Little" would be damn near unwatchable.
