Reasonably faithful to the source material while at the same time existing as a direct sequel to Kubrick’s adaptation.

A solid re-examination of a bygone era and genre with a strong performance of a character worthy of biopic treatment.

Run Time: 1:27
U.S. Release Date: 2019-09-27
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Christopher Morris
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Marchant Davis, Danielle Brooks, Denis O’Hare, Jim Gaffigan, Kayvan Novak

It unquestionably touches the funny bone but, in doing so, reminds us of some truths we’d rather ignore.

A plot-lite opportunity for fans of the long-running TV series to reconnect with old friends and see what they’ve been up to.

Writer/director Jacob Estes has come to the project with a clever concept but his execution is weak, contradictory, and confusing.

A glimpse of The Zombie Apocalypse according to hipster director Jim Jarmusch and actor Bill Murray (with all that entails).

Suffers from a massive narrative condensation that not only mutes the film’s emotional impact but creates an erratic tone.

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

Run Time: 1:52
U.S. Release Date: 2019-03-29
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Adventure/Fantasy
Director: Tim Burton
Cast: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Alan Arkin, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins

The creative muscles flexed by Burton have allowed this version to exist as more than just a fancy live-action retread.

"Destroyer" keeps the tone dark, eschewing anything resembling a traditional crime story and allowing Nicole Kidman's performance to take front stage.
