MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Paul McGuigan

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.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Drugs)
Genre: Drama
Director: Aaron Sorkin

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

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.

U.S. Release Date: 2017-12-22
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Western
Director: Scott Cooper
Cast: Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi, ...

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

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Thriller

Taking the focus off the Pacino/De Niro sequences and allowing the movie to stand on its own reveals a production of uncommon power and intensity.
