In addition to cementing its reputation with the Oscar win, "The Last Emperor" illustrated that Bertolucci could do more than make lurid artistic fare.

Because of the strength of the acting (Ronan’s in particular) and Gerwig’s unusual reworking of the novel’s chronology and ending, it deserves to be seen.

Run Time: 1:42
U.S. Release Date: 2019-11-08
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Paul Feig
Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh, Lydia Leonard, Boris Isakovic

If it doesn’t find its niche in theaters, it will certainly surface again in the home video market and become a favorite for Christmases to come.

Run Time: 1:49
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-01-07
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Robert Eggers
Cast: Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson

The movie achieves its objective of placing the viewer in an uncomfortable situation and allowing it to play out around him or her; a riveting but decidedly non-mainstream horror film.

Soderbergh uses this as an opportunity to educate as much as entertain, but there are times when the scattershot approach is more frustrating than fulfilling.

Run Time: 1:58
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-10-22
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated/Adventure
Director: Jon Favreau
Cast: Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Beyoncé, James Earl Jones, Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, Alfre Woodard

Although it qualifies as solid entertainment for a 2019 family with its technically superior look, the film struggles mightily to find the magic that came so easily to its predecessor.

Run Time: 2:00
U.S. Release Date: 2019-06-07
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Joe Talbot
Cast: Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Danny Glover, Tichina Arnold, Rob Morgan, Mike Epps, Jamal Trulove

Even though Talbot opts for a quasi-humorous approach to the subject matter, the comedic edge can’t hide an underlying sadness about what this all means.

Run Time: 1:29
U.S. Release Date: -
MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama
Director: Jean Vigo
Cast: Dita Parlo, Jean Daste, Michel Simon, Louis Lefebvre

Offers a glimpse of director Jean Vigo's promise and provides an important piece in the jigsaw puzzle of the early history of motion pictures.

As much a fantasy in the political realm as in the romantic one, "Long Shot" is a pleasant trifle that leaves behind a warm fuzzy feeling.

Despite the occasionally uneven pacing and some dramatically inert moments, the historical elements mesh effectively with the fictionalized action-oriented ones.
