It’s more of the same: Violence-saturated eye candy used to buff Smith’s ego and inflate his bank account.

Acting is the reason to see "Bombshell" and it starts with Charlize Theron.

Run Time: 1:52
U.S. Release Date: 2019-11-22
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Drama
Director: Marielle Heller
Cast: Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys, Chris Cooper, Susan Kelechi Watson, Maryann Plunkett, Enrico Colantoni

A celebration of Mr. Rogers and the healing capabilities of his words and doctrine, the movie may not be splashy but it tugs effectively at the heart strings.

An effective recipe that's one-third Bruce Springsteen hagiography, one-third kitschy ‘80s recreation, and one-third feel-good father/son coming together.

Feels drawn-out, like a film school short that has been stretched beyond its natural length.

Run Time: 3:57
U.S. Release Date: 2011-11-25
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Edward Yang
Cast: Chen Chang, Lisa Yang, Kuo-Chu Chang, Elaine Jin, Chi-tsan Wang, Chih-Kang Tan

With its sprawling tapestry and mini-series length, Edward Yang’s 1991 gangster drama deserves the label of "epic" and warrants comparison to Francis Ford Coppola’s "The Godfather."

When the end credits roll, it’s hard to decide whether the most appropriate feeling should be disgust, despair, or despondency.

If you’re in high school (or have ever gone through the experience), you’ll laugh quite a bit, wince more than once, and relate from start to finish.

Never resorts to the kind of patronizing inspiration that has tripped up more than a few of these well-intentioned productions.
