MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Adventure
Director: William Wyler
Cast: Charlton Heston, Stephen Boyd, Haya Harareet, Jack Hawkins, Hugh Griffith, Martha Scott, Cathy O’Donnell, Sam Jaffe

While its grandiose visuals remain impressive and the chariot race has lost none of its energy and excitement, "Ben-Hur" is overlong and bloated.

The mix of traditional thriller elements, Cold War storytelling, submarine warfare, and Sean Connery's magnetic performance engage the viewer throughout.

U.S. Release Date: 2018-10-05
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity, Violence, Adult Themes)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Jeremy Ungar
Cast: Jessie T. Usher, Will Brill, Bella Thorne

To be effective, "Ride" needs to nursemaid the slow-build tension but director Jeremy Ungar rushes through too many scenes.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Action/Comedy
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Cast: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate

To the extent that "Venom" works, it’s as a comedy not an action/adventure superhero film.

Although race is a critical element of the production’s DNA, this is first and foremost the story of a remarkable young woman.

Even the most hard-hearted viewer is likely to have an emotional reaction; this is as much a testimony to the way Cooper tells the tale as to the story itself.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-09-29
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: Drama/Adventure
Director: Werner Herzog
Cast: Klaus Kinski, Helena Rojo, Del Negro, Ruy Guerra, Peter Berling, Cecilia Rivera

A compelling piece of historical fiction that lingers in the memory largely because of its lush, claustrophobic atmosphere and the towering presence of Klaus Kinski.

For those who appreciate documentaries of this sort, it’s a reasonable candidate for theatrical viewing.

MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama
Director: Leo McCarey
Cast: Victor Moore, Beulah Bondi, Thomas Mitchell, Fay Bainter, Barbara Read, Elisabeth Risdon, Minna Gombell, Ray Meyer, Maurice Moscovitch

Without demonizing individuals, McCarey pinpoints the self-absorption that results in the neglect of those whose presence demands sacrifice.

A coming-of-age story characterized by comedy-infused drama and a decidedly female point-of-view.
