McQueen achieves his aim of using a genre framework to advance serious themes, which makes "Widows" an uncommonly good thriller.

With so much material crammed into a 110-minute motion picture, it feels rushed and unfinished.

MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence)
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Warwick Davis, Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Jean Marsh, Patricia Hayes, Billy Barty, Pat Roach, Gavin O’Herlihy

A perfect example of ‘80s fantasy in every way – targeted toward children, unremarkable, and ultimately disappointing.

As fresh and side-splitting today as it was when it entered theaters during a much different era.

Genre: Horror
Director: Fritz Bohm
Cast: Bel Powley, Liv Tyler, Brad Dourif, James Le Gros, Collin Kelly-Sordelet, Mike Faist

Starts strongly but the qualities that make the first 20 minutes harrowing drain away and the movie morphs into an unsatisfying excursion into fantasy-tinged horror.

Saddled with an unevenly paced screenplay and overly reliant on generic CGI, "A Wrinkle in Time" fails to convey the magic of the book.

Perhaps the “Wonder” in "Wonder Wheel" is that anyone agreed to produce something so tired, joyless, and uninspired.

From its imagination-tinged opening to its Kumbaya ending, "Wonder" never forgets that its mission is to provide a non-threatening, warm-and-fuzzy experience.
