While it’s easy to dismiss "Koyaanisqatsi" on the basis of its simplistic message, the amazing visuals are worth seeing on their own merit.

MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated/Musical
Director: Walt Dohrn, David P. Smith
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, James Corden, Rachel Bloom, Kelly Clarkson, Sam Rockwell, George Clinton, Mary J. Blige

Too little use of a rich palette of music and too much peddling of important themes like diversity and the evils of cultural appropriation.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Drugs)
Genre: Horror
Director: Marc Meyers
Cast: Alexandra Daddario, Maddie Hasson, Amy Forsyth, Johnny Knoxville, Keean Johnson, Logan Miller, Austin Swift

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Eliza Hittman
Cast: Sidney Flanigan, Talia Ryder, Theodore Pellerin

Made with such care and focus on the particulars of the situation that one doesn’t have to agree with Hittman’s perspective to be moved by the film.

Genre: Horror/Comedy
Director: Craig Zobel
Cast: Betty Gilpin, Hilary Swank, Ike Barinholtz, Wayne Duvall, Ethan Suplee, Emma Roberts, Amy Madigan, Reed Birney

A solid throwaway B-movie that probably thinks it has more to say than it actually does but is entertaining nonetheless.

U.S. Release Date: 2013-07-19
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: Documentary
Director: Joshua Oppenheimer

The movie does many things - some are wrenching, some pose unanswerable existential questions, and some make one wonder whether the film should exist in the first place.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Horror
Director: Lorcan Finnegan
Cast: Imogen Poots, Jesse Eisenberg

A dark and challenging film and those searching for escapist fare might find that "Vivarium" is a little too intense for comfort.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Drugs)
Genre: Romance/Comedy
Director: Benjamin Kasulke
Cast: Hannah Marks, Liana Liberato, Dylan Sprouse, Luke Spence Roberts

The offbeat approach brings a freshness to a genre (the rom-com) that has become static and predictable.

Exists as a reminder not only of a time when filmmakers had more latitude but of the types of production that would find little traction in today’s changed cinematic marketplace.

Relies on old-fashioned movie elements like atmosphere, character development, and narrative arc without needing crutches like fast editing, frenetic action sequences, and visual clutter.
