Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

Stands out from most surviving silent films in both its epic scope and ability to craft scenes and images that remain effective nearly 100 years later.

Although the structure is designed to mimic that of a standard police procedural, the movie is really about the ugly side of human nature.

Run Time: 3:11
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-10-22
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence)
Genre: Drama
Director: Richard Attenborough
Cast: Ben Kingsley, Rohini Hattangady, Roshan Seth, Candice Bergen, Edward Fox, John Gielgud, Martin Sheen, Ian Charleson

Epic in scope and respectful in presentation, it makes up for any factual inaccuracies with the depth and power of its characterization.

Run Time: 2:05
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-01-28
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Racial Epithets)
Genre: Drama
Director: Kasi Lemmons
Cast: Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Joe Alwyn, Clarke Peters, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Janelle Monae, Zackary Momoh

By blending facts, myths, and made-up material, Lemmons weaves a strong, engaging tale but there’s a sense of a missed opportunity to do something grander.

Run Time: 2:08
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-01-28
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Science Fiction/Action
Director: Tim Miller
Cast: Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna

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.

Run Time: 2:12
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-01-28
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Joon-ho Bong
Cast: Kang-ho Song, Yeo-jeong Jo, So-dam Park, Woo-sik Choi, Sun-kyun Lee, Jung Ziso, Jeong-eun Lee, Hyae Jin Chang

Just as many of the director’s previous efforts have defied pigeonholing, "Parasite" delights in ping-ponging from one genre to another, defying expectations along the way.

Lackluster and restrained, it employs a dull story to present a message about the importance of diversity and the evils of assimilation.

If you liked "Zombieland," you’ll probably like "Zombieland: Double Tap," just not as much.

Run Time: 1:57
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-01-14
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Sci-Fi/Action
Director: Ang Lee
Cast: Will Smith, Clive Owen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Benedict Wong, Douglas Hodge

Can’t make up its mind whether it wants to be a popcorn thriller or something with an existential bent, and isn't fully satisfying as either.

Run Time: 1:58
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-01-14
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence)
Genre: Fantasy
Director: Joachim Ronning
Cast: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Michelle Pfeiffer, Harris Dickinson, Sam Riley, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein, Robert Lindsay

Makes a conscious decision to address a subject that not many family films would touch with a ten-foot pole…then bungles the implications and the message.
