Like nearly all unnecessary sequels, it’s the wedding of “bigger is better” with “more of the same.”

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Steven Soderbergh
Cast: Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Amy Irving, Jay Pharoah, Juno Temple

If the movie’s ending underwhelms, that’s one of the few aspects that disappoints in this edgy, captivating motion picture.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Amanda Sthers
Cast: Toni Collette, Harvey Keitel, Rossy De Palma, Michael Smiley, Tom Hughes

Rossy de Palma is great but she’s not in enough scenes to salvage a movie that lacks substance and focus.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence, Profanity, Bullying)
Genre: Drama/Fantasy
Director: Anders Walter

Director: Hayao Miyazaki

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Carlos Sanchez, Jason Sanchez
Cast: Evan Rachel Wood, Julia Sarah Stone, Denis O’Hare

The screenplay doesn’t rise to the level of the behind-the-camera craftmanship or the acting.

A recognition that historical politics can be just as bizarre and absurd as the modern flavor.

Genre: Action/Adventure
Director: Roar Uthaug

Possibly the most faithful adaptation of a video game to-date but faithfulness to the source material doesn’t always result in the best cinematic experience.

Part romantic-comedy and part coming-of-age story, this is an upbeat, uplifting, and teen-friendly crowd-pleaser.

Whatever goodwill the movie builds up during its first 85 minutes is thrown away in the idiotic, anticlimactic final ten.
