Does an excellent job assembling pieces and preparing viewers for the larger picture but disappoints in its ability to tell a stand-alone story.

Run Time: 1:59
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-03-05
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity)
Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Yorgos Lanthimos
Cast: Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Nicholas Hoult, James Smith, Joe Alwyn, Mark Gatiss

It may peter out on the way to an anticlimactic conclusion but it’s fun while it lasts and the three peerless female leads deserve recognition.

A mystery/comedy that has been robbed by age of its humor, leaving behind a leaden and tedious sampling of what people found funny in the 1980s.

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.

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

Run Time: 2:10
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-03-05
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Violence, Sexual Content, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Drama
Director: Peter Farrelly
Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Effective and affecting while being careful to avoid overdosing its audience on material that some might deem too shocking or upsetting.

The sense of optimism never fades and we’re left with images that are more about the enduring power of love than the oppressive force of injustice.

The honesty with which Jewison and his cast address issues of race and bigotry gives the movie more power than the underlying crime story would suggest.

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.

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