Despite all the devilishly clever moments, freaky episodes, and general weirdness, "Under the Silver Lake" is ultimately unsatisfying.

Run Time: 1:56
U.S. Release Date: 2019-03-22
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Jordan Peele
Cast: Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker

Despite an intriguing premise and a single great sequence, "Us" is a muddled affair that goes off the rails the more Peele tries to expand, explore, and explain his basic concept.

Run Time: 1:38
U.S. Release Date: 2019-02-08
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Emma Forrest
Cast: Jemima Kirke, Lola Kirke, Jamie Dornan, Ben Mendelsohn, Billy Crystal, Jennifer Grey, Alice Eve, Scott Caan

The screenwriter’s guiding hand is too obviously present and becomes an impediment to any appreciation of the characters’ evolutions.

Run Time: 2:04
U.S. Release Date: 2019-01-11
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Adult Themes, Sexual Content, Drugs)
Genre: Drama
Director: Neil Burger
Cast: Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, Nicole Kidman, Julianna Margulies

The film’s predictability is offset by what Hart and Cranston bring to the proceedings.

Run Time: 1:20
U.S. Release Date: 2018-11-02
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Suzi Yoonessi
Cast: Charlene deGuzman, John Hawkes, Melissa Leo, Paul James

The performances of Charlene deGuzman and co-star John Hawkes keep the viewer engaged as the screenplay touches all the expected bases.

Run Time: 1:28
U.S. Release Date: 2018-07-20
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Stephen Susco
Cast: Colin Woodell, Stephanie Nogueras, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Betty Gabriel, Savina Windyani, Connor Del Rio, Andrew Lees

One of the bleakest films of 2018 and shouldn’t be seen by anyone expecting a few lighthearted jump-scares.

Like all B-movies, this one provides moments of visceral satisfaction while ignoring nuance and (at times) logic.

Run Time: 1:37
U.S. Release Date: 2018-03-23
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Steven Soderbergh
Cast: Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Amy Irving, Jay Pharoah, Juno Temple

If the movie’s ending underwhelms, that’s one of the few aspects that disappoints in this edgy, captivating motion picture.

Run Time: 1:51
U.S. Release Date: 2017-02-10
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Sexual Content, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Amma Asante
Cast: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Terry Pheto, Vusi Kunene, Jack Davenport, Tom Felton

A historically based movie that teaches lessons for today as well as educating us about the birth of a nation.

"Unfriended" relies too strongly on a gimmick that wears thin after about an hour.
