MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated/Adventure
Director: Jon Favreau
Cast: Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Beyoncé, James Earl Jones, Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, Alfre Woodard

Although it qualifies as solid entertainment for a 2019 family with its technically superior look, the film struggles mightily to find the magic that came so easily to its predecessor.

The movie doesn’t do anything well and it’s an open question why anyone would pay money to see a reworking of a premise that offers so little.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-10-08
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Michael Winterbottom
Cast: Dev Patel, Radhika Apte, Jim Sarbh

An intriguing blend of globetrotting neo-noir and road trip plot elements, it often seems on the cusp of greatness without ever getting there.

Run Time: 1:41
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-10-08
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Trevor Nunn
Cast: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes, Tereza Srbova, Ben Miles

Although the story is interesting, the presentation isn’t. Individual scenes work but the movie as a whole doesn’t.

A respectable afterthought sequel that is paradoxically welcome and unnecessary.

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-10-08
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Horror
Director: Gary Dauberman
Cast: McKenna Grace, Madison Iseman, Katie Sarife, Michael Cimino, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson

Quickly assembled with little concern for anything more than providing a funhouse experience in exchange for a few bucks.
