"Raya" offers a screenplay and story geared primarily toward younger audiences and lacks the magic necessary to command long-term adulation.

Run Time: 2:01
U.S. Release Date: 2020-10-21
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Sexual Content, Adult Themes)
Genre: Thriller/Mystery
Director: Ben Wheatley
Cast: Lily James, Armie Hammer, Kristin Scott Thomas, Sam Riley, Ann Dowd

A decade from now, Wheatley’s "Rebecca" will have faded from the memory, entirely eclipsed by Hitchcock’s interpretation.

As a franchise and a brand, Peanuts undoubtedly has value, but this particular chapter is hermetically sealed in the 1970s.

Run Time: 1:41
U.S. Release Date: 2019-04-19
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Trevor Nunn
Cast: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes, Tereza Srbova, Ben Miles

Although the story is interesting, the presentation isn’t. Individual scenes work but the movie as a whole doesn’t.

U.S. Release Date: 2018-10-05
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity, Violence, Adult Themes)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Jeremy Ungar
Cast: Jessie T. Usher, Will Brill, Bella Thorne

To be effective, "Ride" needs to nursemaid the slow-build tension but director Jeremy Ungar rushes through too many scenes.

Run Time: 1:37
U.S. Release Date: 2018-05-04
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Documentary
Director: Julie Cohen, Betsy West
Cast: Ruth Bader Ginsburg

While hard to describe as anything short of a hagiography, it contains a share of important historical information.

"Rebel in the Rye" falls into the trap that ensnares many a bio-pic: trying to present too broad a chronology in too limited a time.

Run Time: 1:39
U.S. Release Date: 2017-03-17
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Julia Ducournau
Cast: Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, Rabah Nait Oufella

Not bad enough to be interesting and not good enough to be worth paying money for.

Features some nice performances and contains some strong material but, as a whole, the movie is too slow and too long to really work.

Run Time: 1:52
U.S. Release Date: 2016-02-19
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Thematic Elements, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Stephen Hopkins
Cast: Stephan James, Jason Sudeikis, Jeremy Irons, Carice van Houten, William Hurt, Shanice Banton

"Race" does a workmanlike job of bringing Jesse Owens to life and explaining his historical importance, but it fails to transcend the genre.
