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

Worth seeing simply because it’s different - not weird, off-the-wall different, but different in a good way.

This is what ‘80s comedies were and all of them, "Better Off Dead" included, are more valuable today as time capsules than as artistic endeavors.

An opportunity to re-examine ‘70s attitudes through the lens of ‘10s perceptions, "BlacKkKlansman" is equally entertaining and disturbing.

An old-fashioned character piece, more dramatic than comedic in tone but leavened with occasional humor.

Its ability to tickle the funny bone and warm the heart allow it to work as a traditional rom-com even if the participants are older than is the norm for the genre.
