What we have here is a godawful movie that, despite its general badness, nevertheless casts a spell of sorts.

Although made with care and competence and featuring a strong underlying premise, the film as a whole is forgettable.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Release Date: 2020-10-09
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Woody Allen
Cast: Timothee Chalamet, Elle Fanning, Liev Schreiber, Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Diego Luna, Kelly Rohrbach, Cherry Jones

Revisits familiar themes and ideas from other, earlier films that were presented to far better effect the first time around.

The relatively straightforward bio-pic trajectory feels more like a Victorian/Edwardian era soap opera than the chronicle of a scientific pioneer.

Run Time: 2:04
U.S. Release Date: 2020-04-24
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: Adventure
Director: Richard Gray
Cast: Angus Macfadyen, Anna Hutchinson, Zach McGowan, Gabriel Bateman, Talitha Bateman, Brandon Lessard, Patrick Fugit

Is too long by at least a half-hour for the surprisingly slight tale it has to tell.

Run Time: 2:13
U.S. Release Date: 1988-12-16
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Barry Levinson
Cast: Dustin Hoffman, Tom Cruise, Valeria Golino, Jerry Molen

An oddball buddy/road movie that nearly drowns in a tsunami of sentimentality and predictability.

Run Time: 1:49
U.S. Release Date: 2020-01-31
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Drugs)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Reed Morano
Cast: Blake Lively, Jude Law, Sterling K. Brown, Raza Jaffrey

Spy action-thrillers are supposed to be fun on some level but this one is too much of a chore to properly entertain.

"The Running Man" wastes a good premise so egregiously that it feels like a desecration.

Run Time: 1:47
U.S. Release Date: 2018-04-13
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Disaster Images)
Genre: Action/Adventure
Director: Brad Peyton
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman

A-level special effects can’t elevate "Rampage" above its B-grade aspirations.

Run Time: 1:58
U.S. Release Date: 2017-11-22
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Dan Gilroy
Cast: Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell, Carmen Ejogo, Lynda Gravatt, Tony Plana

The story is surprisingly unfocused and plunges into quasi-thriller territory that relies on a series of hard-to-swallow contrivances.
