Although there are numerous problems with "Fifty Shades Freed," the fundamental one is also the most obvious: the lack of a compelling story.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence, Adult Themes)
Genre: Science Fiction/Drama
Director: Kiyoshi Kurosawa

There are moments of pathos and deft comedy but, overall, "Before We Vanish" is overlong, poorly paced, and scattershot.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Drugs)
Genre: Drama/Comedy/Musical

Director John Carney infuses the familiar framework of the “coming of age” story with songs and whimsy and a touch of romance.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Paul McGuigan
Cast: Jamie Bell, Annette Bening, Julie Walters, ...

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.

U.S. Release Date: 2017-12-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Sexual Content, Brief Nudity, Drugs)
Genre: Thriller/Drama
Director: Ridley Scott
Cast: Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, ...

It’s a serviceable thriller at best although Christopher Plummer’s late-to-the-party performance is worthy of praise.

Run Time: 2:10
U.S. Release Date: 2017-12-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Partial Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Vicky Krieps, Lesley Manville

It starts slowly but eventually develops into something that is in equal parts fascinating and disturbing.

Run Time: 2:20
U.S. Release Date: 2017-12-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Drugs)
Genre: Drama
Director: Aaron Sorkin
Cast: Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, ...

The movie is all about the nonstop dialogue but, as a result of the way the words flow, they function as momentum builders.

Run Time: 2:15
U.S. Release Date: 2017-12-22
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Brief Nudity)
Genre: Fantasy/Drama
Director: Alexander Payne
Cast: Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, ...

The central character is as small figuratively as he is literally, and that limits the movie’s capacity to enthrall and engage.

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Release Date: 2017-12-20
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Musical/Drama
Director: Michael Gracey
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, ...

A family film whose infectious, crowd-pleasing song-and-dance numbers justify a 105-minute running length when the pedestrian story can’t.
