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.

MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Yarrow Cheney, Scott Mosier

“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.

MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama
Director: Cecil B. DeMille
Cast: Charlton Heston, James Stewart, Betty Hutton, Cornel Wilde, Dorothy Lamour, Gloria Grahame, Lawrence Tierney, Bob Carson

Not a bad movie but the passage of time hasn’t been kind to it. The things that made it popular upon its release either don’t apply or don’t work for a 2018 audience.

Despite not aging well, "The Graduate" remain worth seeing primarily for Anne Bancroft’s performance but also as a time capsule looking at a lifestyle that would soon disappear.

Run Time: 1:29
U.S. Release Date: 1993-06-02
MPAA Rating: "NR" (War Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Animated
Director: Isao Takahata
Cast: Tsutomu Tatsumi, Ayano Shiraishi, Yoshiko Shinohara, Akemi Yamaguchi

Some movies are such singular achievements that they deserve to be seen at least once by everyone who considers himself or herself to be a lover of film.

"Gringo" is messy and at times incoherent, filled with pointless subplots and confounding “twists.”

Canny enough to go full-throttle with the absurd and not bother trying to do much with its meager dramatic and/or sentimental elements.
