Stands out from most surviving silent films in both its epic scope and ability to craft scenes and images that remain effective nearly 100 years later.

It’s more of the same: Violence-saturated eye candy used to buff Smith’s ego and inflate his bank account.

Although the structure is designed to mimic that of a standard police procedural, the movie is really about the ugly side of human nature.

Run Time: 1:35
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-04-14
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Gore, Profanity)
Genre: Sci-Fi/Thriller
Director: William Eubank
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Jessica Henwick, Vincent Cassel, T.J. Miller, John Gallagher Jr., Mamoudou Athie

Will likely satisfy audiences who go in with appropriately established expectations because, for what it is, the film is solidly entertaining.

Although "Terms of Endearment" may be a passable way to spend a couple of hours, to label it as the Best Picture of 1983 (or any year) is a miscarriage.

Run Time: 1:50
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-03-24
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: War
Director: Sam Mendes
Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman

A war movie of uncommon vision - by turns startling, gut-wrenching, exhausting, and satisfying.

Run Time: 1:41
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-03-10
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Nick Bruno, Troy Quane
Cast: Will Smith, Tom Holland, Rashida Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, DJ Khaled, Reba McEntire

The filmmakers seem unconcerned about appealing to anyone who isn’t a 9-year old boy; aside from the occasional throw-away line, there’s little here to interest adults.

Run Time: 2:16
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-04-14
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Destin Daniel Cretton
Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, O’Shea Jackson Jr.

Despite the whiff of “Oscar bait” surrounding the production, it’s a well-made, affecting tale about do-gooders who do good rather than merely muddying the waters.

Run Time: 2:15
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-04-07
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Drama
Director: Greta Gerwig
Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Chris Cooper, Louis Garrel, James Norton, Bob Odenkirk, Timothee Chalamet, Laura Dern, Eliza Scanlen, Florence Pugh, Emma Watson, Meryl Streep

Because of the strength of the acting (Ronan’s in particular) and Gerwig’s unusual reworking of the novel’s chronology and ending, it deserves to be seen.

Acting is the reason to see "Bombshell" and it starts with Charlize Theron.
