Science fiction that rivets the attention, excites the imagination, and engages the mind.

A mediocre remake of a mediocre original – not exactly must-see cinema. "Flatliners" is dead on arrival.

Disappointingly shallow and superficial, recreating events from an earlier era as the Hollywood of today would like them to be remembered.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Adult Themes, Sexual Situations, Brief Nudity, Profanity)

Relying more on existential and philosophical issues than action or cheesy special effects, "Realife" represents true science fiction.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Peter Landesman
Cast: Liam Neeson, Diane Lane, Maika Monroe, Josh Lucas, Eddie Marsan, Marton Csokas, Bruce Greenwood, Tom Sizemore, Tony Goldwyn

Although not the definitive Watergate movie, it illustrates an aspect that has not been given ample attention by filmmakers.

"American Made" is breezy and fun and makes its points without subjecting the viewer to a browbeating.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2017-12-19
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Stephen Frears
Cast: Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Olivia Williams, Michael Gambon, Eddie Izzard, Tim Pigott-Smith, Adeel Akhtar

Frears hasn’t just made an historical recreation; he has made a movie containing a message with universal implications.

When "Polina" works, it captivates. When it doesn’t, it’s sufficiently well-made to advance the story.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Adult Themes)
Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Lena Khan
Cast: Danny Pudi, Rizwan Manji, Jon Heder, Karen David, Kevin Pollak

At times it feels a little amateurish, especially in terms of its comedy, but there’s also a deep-rooted sense of sincerity.

The movie may be marketed to art house audiences but it has something to say to (and about) us all.
