Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

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.

Brand New to Video Views

Although race is a critical element of the production’s DNA, this is first and foremost the story of a remarkable young woman.

Run Time: 2:21
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-01-22
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity)
Genre: Drama/Adventure
Director: Damien Chazelle
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Ciaran Hinds, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Lukas Haas, Shea Whigham

For those who can get past the shaky-cam aspect that infects the cinematography, this is an involving look back in time at one of the most significant human endeavors of the last century.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity)
Genre: Comedy/Thriller
Director: David Lowery
Cast: Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, Tika Sumpter

If there’s a reason to see the movie, it’s Redford, whose charismatic, mature presence argues that age has done nothing to diminish his ability to command the screen.

This is the sequel "Halloween" fans have been awaiting for four decades as the slow-burn terrors of 1978 reach out across the years to shock and frighten a new generation.

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-01-03
MPAA Rating: "G" (In Japanese with subtitles/dubbed)
Genre: Animated/Fantasy
Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Cast: Minami Takayama, Rei Sakuma, Kappei Yamaguchi, Keiko Toda, Mieko Nobusawa, Koichi Miura

Charming and fully appropriate for viewers of all ages, it re-enforces the idea that animated movies don’t require villains to entertain.

Run Time: 2:20
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-01-01
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller/Comedy
Director: Drew Goddard
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Chris Hemsworth, Cailee Spaeny, Lewis Pullman

Has problems beyond its inability to stick the ending but that’s the one that ultimately sinks it.

With so much material crammed into a 110-minute motion picture, it feels rushed and unfinished.

Run Time: 1:48
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-12-20
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: War/Drama
Director: Keith Gordon
Cast: Ethan Hawke, Gary Sinise, Peter Berg, Kevin Dillon, Arye Gross, Frank Whaley, John C. McGinley

Powerful without being overbearing, emphasizing the nonsensical aspects of war without dragging the viewer into the trenches and burying him/her in mud.

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.
