Filters:

A lackluster, hard-to-swallow police procedural with soap opera-ish subplots and flat characters.

Run Time: 2:08
U.S. Release Date: 2019-05-24
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Adventure/Fantasy/Musical
Director: Guy Ritchie
Cast: Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad

For a movie about magic, that’s one element sorely lacking in this retread.

Run Time: 1:44
U.S. Release Date: 2019-05-10
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Director: Rob Letterman
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Howard Clifford, Ken Watanabe, Chris Geere

This isn’t a movie, it’s a cog in a multibillion-dollar media empire, a soulless feature-length example of product placement at its most blatant.

Run Time: 1:46
U.S. Release Date: 2019-05-03
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: AJ Jankel
Cast: Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger, Emun Elliott, Gregor Selkirk, Lauren Lyle, Kate Dickie

The framing of characters is black-and-white and the far-too-pat ending offers an unearned resolution.

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

Run Time: 1:48
U.S. Release Date: 2019-04-12
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.

Run Time: 1:43
U.S. Release Date: 2019-03-29
MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama
Director: Michael Engler
Cast: Elizabeth McGovern, Haley Lu Richardson, Miranda Otto, Blythe Danner, Campbell Scott, Victoria Hill, Robert Fairchild

Despite being blessed with well-designed period sets and top-tier acting, this collaboration between writer Julian Fellowes and director Michael Engler is dramatically inert.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-06-11
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Torture, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Science Fiction/Thriller
Director: Rupert Wyatt
Cast:

A weird cross between "District 9" and "The Battle of Algiers" that doesn’t do either of those apparent inspirations justice.

Run Time: 1:40
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-05-14
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Horror
Director: Christopher Landon
Cast: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Phi Vu, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews, Suraj Sharma, Steve Zissis

A passable way to throw away 100 minutes if you’re willing to turn off your brain and pretend it’s making sense.

Wastes its premise while offering little more than a sparkling Henson performance to distract us from the underwritten screenplay.
