A kluge of bad science and worse science fiction clichés, it tries to be atmospheric and scary but succeeds only at being frustrating and tedious.

MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Yarrow Cheney, Scott Mosier
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Cameron Seely, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Pharrell Williams

“Hollow cash grab” is one way to describe "The Grinch." Equally appropriate would be “soulless abomination.”

A generic espionage/crime thriller; although briskly paced, the plot is far from airtight and demands a deus ex machina to reach its climax.

McQueen achieves his aim of using a genre framework to advance serious themes, which makes "Widows" an uncommonly good thriller.

It's possible to recognize that film’s stylistic mastery while acknowledging that some aspects are artifacts of a bygone era.

MPAA Rating: "G"
Genre: Drama
Director: Fred Zinnemann
Cast: Paul Scofield, Wendy Hiller, Leo McKern, Robert Shaw, Orson Welles, Susannah York, Nigel Davenport, John Hurt

Offers an engaging, if somewhat dry, history lesson leavened with low-key drollness and powerful acting.

Run Time: 1:40
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-01-29
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Björn Runge
Cast: Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Max Irons, Christian Slater, Annie Starke, Harry Lloyd, Elizabeth McGovern

A engaging story anchored by two powerful performances, with Glenn Close being is as ferocious as she has ever been.

Often preposterous, occasionally idiotic, and always compulsively watchable.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Luca Guadagnino

Deserves the derision and disdain it will receive from mainstream movie-goers nationwide.

Targeted at prepubescent girls, the holiday-themed fantasy adventure drowns in CGI, underdeveloped characters, and a plot utterly devoid of energy and excitement.
