MPAA Rating: "R" (Nudity, Sexual Content, Profanity, Violence)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Luca Guardagnino
Cast: Matthias Schoenarts, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson

Despite a strong cast, gorgeous cinematography, and a suffocating sense of sexual tension, this movie takes far too long to get off the ground.

Run Time: 1:53
U.S. Release Date: 2015-12-25
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Ericson Core
Cast: Luke Bracey, Edgar Ramirez, Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer, Delroy Lindo

Analyzed on its own merits or in concert with the earlier film, "Point Break" doesn’t work.

With "Legend", the elements are present but they are clumsily assembled and the outcome underwhelms.

It might be possible to make a gripping film about the 2010 mining disaster but "The 33" isn’t it.

Run Time: 1:46
U.S. Release Date: 2015-10-23
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Director: Breck Eisner
Cast: Vin Diesel, Michael Caine, Rose Leslie, (voices) Elijah Wood

The film lacks the quality one expects from a late October/Oscar Season release, feeling instead more like a worthy contender for January/February distribution.

Run Time: 1:38
U.S. Release Date: 2015-10-16
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Horror/Comedy
Director: Rob Letterman
Cast: Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee, Amy Ryan, Jillian Bell

The film, which captures the feel if not the full charm of the written stories, comes across as an autopilot low-scare monster movie targeted at 7 and 8-year olds.

Run Time: 2:01
U.S. Release Date: 2015-09-25
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Nancy Meyers
Cast: Robert DeNiro, Anne Hathaway, Rene Russo, Nat Wolff, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Zack Pearlman

With a running length of two hours, it's hard to cite this movie's limited charm as a sufficient reason for enduring all the self-indulgent bloat.

With minimal plot development and far too much running around in dark corridors, "The Scorch Trials" has a poor story:filler ratio.

Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan is his own worst enemy in the choices he makes bringing "The Visit" to the screen.

Run Time: 1:37
U.S. Release Date: 2015-08-21
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Disturbing Images, Profanity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Ciaran Foy
Cast: James Ransone, Shannyn Sossamon, Robert Daniel Sloan, Dartanian Sloan, Lea Coco

More like an unnecessary retread than an organic extension of the original.
