The disappointment of what this movie could have been dogs it as it navigates safe, predictable roads to a preordained conclusion.

An Oscar-wannabe that didn’t make the cut and is being released in mid-August hoping to find a small audience.

Run Time: 1:46
U.S. Home Release Date: 2017-11-14
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Taylor Sheridan
Cast: Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Gil Birmingham, Jon Bernthal, Julia Jones, Kelsey Chow, Graham Greene

The narrative effectively marries the character based-aspects with the mystery-thriller ones.

Weird without being off-putting and offers a different kind of experience than most films.

U.S. Release Date: 2017-08-11
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (War Violence)
Genre: Animated
Director: Sunao Katabuchi
Cast: Rena Nounen, Magumi Han, Yoshimasa Hosoya, Natsuki Inaba, Minori Omi, Daisuke Ono

Eye-opening and humanizing, this is as atypical an animated feature as one is likely to find washing ashore in the United States.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2017-10-10
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: John Stockwell
Cast: Wesley Snipes, Anne Heche, Dave Annable

The lack of a clear direction and vision leads to something haphazard, sloppy, and not remotely viscerally compelling.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller

The only way "Kidnap" could possibly work is if the viewer isn’t paying attention.

Run Time: 1:35
U.S. Home Release Date: 2017-10-31
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Science Fiction
Director: Nikolaj Arcel
Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Idris Elba, Tom Taylor, Katheryn Winnick, Jackie Earle Haley, Abbey Lee, Claudia Kim

Not so much a bad movie as a superficial, uninspired, and forgettable one.

"Detroit" functions as much as a dramatization of things that happened as a cautionary tale of where we could be headed.

MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Tony Leondis

Looks and feels like something made for Cartoon Network or Amazon Prime rather than a big-screen offering.
