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

This example of prepackaged horror is so by-the-numbers that even the jump-scares don’t cause much of a jump.

Despite all the devilishly clever moments, freaky episodes, and general weirdness, "Under the Silver Lake" is ultimately unsatisfying.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Trevor Nunn
Cast: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes, Tereza Srbova, Ben Miles

Although the story is interesting, the presentation isn’t. Individual scenes work but the movie as a whole doesn’t.

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.

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.

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

Genre: Drama

Genre: Drama
Director: Mike Leigh
Cast: Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Pearce Quigley, David Moorst, Karl Johnson, Neil Bell, Victor McGuire, Tim McInnerny

Although the film’s length demands patience, it is a meticulous recreation of an event that represents a history lesson as well as an effectively crafted drama.
