There’s something enormously refreshing about the openness and honesty found in Keith Behrman’s coming-of-age film, "Giant Little Ones."

Simply directed but rich in detail, "Gloria Bell" has no deeper themes or motives beyond documenting a slice of the main character’s life.

Run Time: 1:38
U.S. Release Date: 2019-03-01
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Profanity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Neil Jordan
Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe, Colm Feore, Stephen Rea

Little more than a B-movie with strong production values and an eclectic cast, this is far from Jordan at his best.

Run Time: 1:54
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-01-23
MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama/War
Director: Jean Renoir
Cast: Jean Gabin, Marcel Dalio, Pierre Fresnay, Erich von Stroheim, Dita Parlo

Renoir’s vision, themes, and implementation are as strong today as when he committed them to celluloid more than 80 years ago.

Overlong, talky, filled with meta references, and with a strangely low-energy tone, the movie never fully gels.

Run Time: 2:10
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-03-05
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Violence, Sexual Content, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Drama
Director: Peter Farrelly
Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Effective and affecting while being careful to avoid overdosing its audience on material that some might deem too shocking or upsetting.

A generic espionage/crime thriller; although briskly paced, the plot is far from airtight and demands a deus ex machina to reach its climax.

Run Time: 1:20
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-02-05
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Yarrow Cheney, Scott Mosier
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Cameron Seely, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Pharrell Williams

“Hollow cash grab” is one way to describe "The Grinch." Equally appropriate would be “soulless abomination.”

Bleak and gripping, "Galveston" offers a compelling experience for those who don’t demand pure escapism and are willing to sample the darker side of cinema.

The passage of time has dimmed its greatness while at the same time imbuing it with a nostalgic element that allows it to work today.
