Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

"Midnight Madness" probably lives in the memories of some as an engagingly dumb slice of ‘80s moviedom and it’s better left there.

Run Time: 1:49
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-04-21
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Science Fiction/Drama
Director: Nacho Vigalondo
Cast: Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Austin Stowell, Tim Blake Nelson, Dan Stevens

Deserves to be seen for all that’s good and original about it and for the distinctive way it uses monster movies and monster movie conventions.

Run Time: 1:29
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-04-09
MPAA Rating: "NR" (War Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Animated
Director: Isao Takahata
Cast: Tsutomu Tatsumi, Ayano Shiraishi, Yoshiko Shinohara, Akemi Yamaguchi

Some movies are such singular achievements that they deserve to be seen at least once by everyone who considers himself or herself to be a lover of film.

Run Time: 1:29
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-03-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Nudity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Joseph Ruben
Cast: Terry O’Quinn, Jill Schoelen, Shelley Hack, Charles Lanyer, Stephen Shellen

Doesn’t hold up quite as well as it did during the late 1980s but it still generates suspense and O’Quinn’s performance has lost none of its power.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-05-01
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Disturbing Images, Drugs)
Genre: Drama
Director: Fatih Akin
Cast: Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Johannes Krisch, Ulrich Brandhoff, Hanna Hilsdorf, Numan Acar

Shows how the most devastating damage caused by terrorists sometimes isn’t to those who die; it’s to those who remain alive.

Run Time: 2:10
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-05-01
MPAA Rating: "R" (War Violence, Profanity)
Genre: War/Thriller
Director: Nicolai Fuglsig
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Pena, Trevante Rhodes, Navid Negahban, William Fichtner

For those who enjoy war films, especially those with an “old fashioned” bent, "12 Strong" offers two solid hours.

A morality play that has much in common with the so-called “revisionist” Westerns of recent years.

Run Time: 1:46
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-04-24
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Paul McGuigan
Cast: Jamie Bell, Annette Bening, Julie Walters, Vanessa Redgrave, Stephen Graham, Leanne Best, James Bloor

Despite some great acting, this is a largely unpleasant viewing experience and the downbeat tone isn’t helped by a narrative that flits back and forth in time without rhyme or reason.

Run Time: 1:43
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-04-24
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Family/Adventure
Director: Paul King
Cast: Ben Whishaw, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Brendan Gleeson, Noah Taylor, Aaron Neil

The movie will enthrall children while providing enough sophisticated tidbits to keep adults engaged.

Run Time: 2:20
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-04-24
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Christian Gudegast
Cast: Gerard Butler, Pablo Schreiber, Evan Jones, O’Shea Jackson Jr., 50 Cent

The movie may not be the second coming of "Heat" but it’s good enough to turn up the temperature to “warm.”
