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
Cast: Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger, Emun Elliott, Gregor Selkirk, Lauren Lyle, Kate Dickie

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.

Genre: Drama
Director: Maria Allred

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Vaughn Stein
Cast: Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, Mike Myers, Max Irons, Dexter Fletcher

The strength of the stylistic elements and Robbie’s performance aren’t sufficient to overcome the deficiencies of an initially derivative and ultimately off-kilter narrative.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Jason Reitman
Cast: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Ron Livingstone, Jay Duplass, Elaine Tan

More often than not, "Tully" comes across as a group of relatable characters marooned in a story with nowhere to go.

For anyone who cares about the things that make horror worthwhile, "Truth or Dare" isn’t just a misfire, it’s a travesty.
