MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Fantasy
Director: David Lowery
Cast: Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sarita Choudhury, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Ralph Ineson

Sheds conventional fantasy adventure tropes in exchange for a moody, trippy approach that transforms the well-known Arthurian tale into something offbeat and surprising.

What works as a sizzle reel totaling three minutes shows its inherent shallowness when expanded to nearly two hours.

Run Time: 1:59
U.S. Home Release Date: 2021-02-09
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Disaster Sequences, Profanity, Violence)
Genre: Action/Adventure
Director: Ric Roman Waugh

In different times, it might have been possible to give "Greenland" a lukewarm recommendation for anyone looking for something frenetic and mindless.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Drugs)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Ninian Doff
Cast: Lewis Gribben, Rian Gordon, Viraj Juneja, Samuel Bottomley, Jonathan Aris, Eddie Izzard, Georgie Glen

Doff announces himself as a talent to be reckoned with and his feature debut seems destined for admission into the cult classic hall of fame.

MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Comedy/Adventure
Director: Clyde Bruckman, Buster Keaton
Cast: Buster Keaton, Marion Mack

For Buster Keaton, few would argue against "The General" as the ideal “staring point.” Its accessibility remains crucial to its status as a classic no film-lover should bypass.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (War Violence, Profanity)
Genre: War/Thriller
Director: Aaron Schneider
Cast: Tom Hanks, Elisabeth Shue, Stephen Graham, Matt Helm, Rob Morgan, Travis Quentin

Hanks’ script is an example of economical storytelling and the end result is a thrilling 75 minutes of the kinds of things one expects from well-made submarine movies.

The overpolished screenplay and overuse of directorial flourishes hamper the viewer’s enjoyment of what should have been a pretty straightforward caper-style crime film.

Run Time: 3:11
U.S. Release Date: 1982-12-08
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence)
Genre: Drama
Director: Richard Attenborough
Cast: Ben Kingsley, Rohini Hattangady, Roshan Seth, Candice Bergen, Edward Fox, John Gielgud, Martin Sheen, Ian Charleson

Epic in scope and respectful in presentation, it makes up for any factual inaccuracies with the depth and power of its characterization.

Run Time: 1:57
U.S. Release Date: 2019-10-11
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Sci-Fi/Action
Director: Ang Lee
Cast: Will Smith, Clive Owen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Benedict Wong, Douglas Hodge

Can’t make up its mind whether it wants to be a popcorn thriller or something with an existential bent, and isn't fully satisfying as either.

Although this stripped-down regurgitation of the story is faithful to Donna Tartt’s novel in the broadest sense of the word, it lacks elegance and depth.
