Regardless of how much how much has been softened to suit the movie’s perspective, the end result is compelling drama with top-notch performances and a feel-good denouement.

The surprisingly intimate result is enjoyable in the moment but the mental footprint fades rather quickly.

Nostalgia remains the main selling point and viewers attending for that reason won’t be disappointed.

Scott transforms "The Last Duel" into a deconstruction of chivalry and an exploration of the ugliest aspects of misogyny in the late Middle Ages.

One of the better sequels, containing all the requisite elements to make it popular among horror film lovers regardless of their ages.

"Lamb" is very much a visual experience, relying on tone to buttress narrative weaknesses.

Enough not only to whet the appetite for the TV Series, "The Sopranos," but to provide a moderately satisfying meal in its own right.

Among the best Tarantino-influenced thrillers to have made it to theaters in the last quarter-century.

A lively, crowd-pleasing story with heart to go along with the glitter and glitz.

For the most part, this movie features a different way of doing things even if it eventually loses some of that originality in order to conform to the comic book aesthetic.
