Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

Intended to be a feel-good extravaganza – one that sweeps aside considerations of logic and intelligence in a tide of exuberance that crests with an emotional high.

Run Time: 2:03
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-12-06
MPAA Rating: "R" (Nudity, Sexual Content, Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Pedro Almodovar
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Marisa Paredes, Jan Cornet, Roberto Alamo

Mad scientists overwhelmed by hubris are nothing new but no iteration of the story has been told in quite this way.

Run Time: 3:05
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-12-04
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Nudity, Violence)
Genre: Drama
Director: Akira Kurosawa
Cast: Toshiro Mifune, Yuzo Kayama, Terumi Niki, Yoshio Tsuchiya, Tsutomu Yamazaki, Miyuki Kuwano, Yoshitaka Zushi

As an elegy to a perfect fusion of directorial mastery and an actor’s indomitable screen presence, it’s hard to imagine something more memorable.

The cliche "it's so bad, it's good" doesn't apply here. "The Star Wars Holiday Special" isn't enjoyable on any level, campy or otherwise. It's just ugly, painful, and boring.

Run Time: 1:57
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-12-18
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity, Violence)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Paul Feig
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Henry Golding, Andrew Moodie, Linda Cardellini, Jean Smart

The movie becomes so obsessed with narrative switchbacks that it comes close to straying into self-parody territory.

Exemplifies the lackluster result of exhuming played-out franchises that are better left buried.

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-12-18
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Disturbing Images, Violence)
Genre: Fantasy
Director: Eli Roth
Cast: Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, Kyle MacLachlan, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Sunny Suljic

Seemingly made with the under-10 crowd in mind, the screenplay doesn’t bother to entice or interest any parents who might be in the audience.

Run Time: 2:08
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-12-18
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Documentary
Director: Michael Moore
Cast: Michael Moore, Donald Trump, David Hogg, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

While there are a few moments in the movie that can be said to be Moore at his best, the production as a whole may be Moore at his worst.

Run Time: 1:38
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-12-18
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Action/Comedy
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Cast: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate

To the extent that "Venom" works, it’s as a comedy not an action/adventure superhero film.

Run Time: 2:05
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-12-11
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Anton Fuqua
Cast: Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal, Melissa Leo, Bill Pullman, Jonathan Scarfe, Orson Bean, Ashton Sanders

A solid follow-up to "The Equalizer" and an effectively understated entry into the 2018 summer movie sweepstakes.
