Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

Its approach and style contrast markedly with the artificiality and lack of ingenuity that has infected the genre over the years.

Brand New to Video Views

Run Time: 1:50
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-06-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Kim Nguyen
Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Salma Hayek, Michael Mando, Johan Heldenbergh, Frank Schorpion

Putting aside some dubious narrative contortions, this is an opportunity for its two lead actors to flex their acting muscles.

Run Time: 1:52
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-06-25
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Adventure/Fantasy
Director: Tim Burton
Cast: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Alan Arkin, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins

The creative muscles flexed by Burton have allowed this version to exist as more than just a fancy live-action retread.

Run Time: 1:48
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-06-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Violence)
Genre: Drama
Director: James Kent
Cast: Keira Knightley, Alexander Skarsgård, Jason Clarke, Flora Theimann

A curiosity for history buffs and those who enjoy middling period piece melodramas.

Eschews the simplistic animated story arc as it explores the power of imagination and innovation to overcome grief.

Run Time: 1:56
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-06-18
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: 1:33
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-06-18
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Profanity, Violence)
Genre: Drama
Director: Keith Behrman
Cast: Josh Wiggins, Darren Mann, Taylor Hickson, Maria Bello, Kyle MacLachlan, Niamh Wilson, Peter Outerbridge

There’s something enormously refreshing about the openness and honesty found in Keith Behrman’s coming-of-age film, "Giant Little Ones."

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

There’s plenty of visual pizzazz and action but the movie is geared more for those interested in getting their MCU fix than being fully immersed in a unique superhero experience.

Run Time: 1:55
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-06-11
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama/Romance
Director: Justin Baldoni
Cast: Haley Lu Richardson, Cole Sprouse, Moises Arias

The problem isn’t the emotional manipulation but the clumsy way in which the movie orchestrates its third act.
