The subject matter is inherently non-cinematic and, regardless of how many swoops, tilts, and fast cuts the director employs, his sense of visual flair never overcomes the underplayed drabness of the narrative.

Genre: Horror
Director: Lars Klevberg
Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, Tim Matheson, David Lewis, Mark Hamill

This remake is not only worse than the first film, but worse to the point of unwatchability.

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

The film’s imaginative approach offers an opportunity to explore the early roots of styles that were to become mainstream in Hollywood in the years and decades to follow.

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. Release Date: 2019-03-15
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.

There’s plenty of visual pizzazz and action but the movie is geared more for those interested in getting their MCU fix than being fully immersed in a unique superhero experience.

The gallows humor is pervasive, giving the production, which sometimes crosses over a line into outright parody, a quirky tone.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Extreme Violence, Gore, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Vicky Jewson

Disposable action entertainment – a throw-away title that’s not bad enough to turn off but not good enough to seek out.
