Although "Terms of Endearment" may be a passable way to spend a couple of hours, to label it as the Best Picture of 1983 (or any year) is a miscarriage.

Feels like an echo of "T2," doing many of the same things and offering similar narrative perturbations but without the verve of the earlier movie.

"Tokyo Story" is as much a journey of discovery as it is an opportunity to reflect. The characters populating this film aren’t strangers. They are our parents, our children, ourselves.

A respectable afterthought sequel that is paradoxically welcome and unnecessary.

More like the dramatization of an Encyclopedia Britannica entry than a fully rendered movie, "Tolkien" loses sight of the character.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: AJ Jankel

The framing of characters is black-and-white and the far-too-pat ending offers an unearned resolution.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: J.C. Chandor
Cast: Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hudlund, Pedro Pascal, Adria Arjona

An unconventional heist film in which a majority of the action occurs after the loot has been liberated, it features well-staged action scenes that ooze tension.

Has retained the ability to make viewers laugh at the screwball antics of its characters and remains a breezy, enjoyable romp.

A superficially entertaining science-fiction action/adventure film that might have worked better had it focused more on the “science fiction” elements and less on the “action/adventure” ones.

Falls prey to two common problems: (1) predictable, uninspired humor, and (2) inept attempts to inject drama into the proceedings during the last act.
