Run Time: 1:31
U.S. Home Release Date: 2023-01-15
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Comedy
Director: Tim Burton
Cast:

Unevenly paced and narratively scattershot, it offers moments of entertainment but lacks cohesion and consistency.

The movie offers limited entertainment for those who enjoy this sort of fare but fails as anything more than a throw-away streaming option.

Run Time: 1:42
U.S. Home Release Date: 2022-11-15
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Ti West
Cast: Mia Goth, Tandi Wright, Matthew Sunderland, David Corenswet, Emma Jenkins-Purro, Alistair Sewell

For those enamored with Ti West’s extraordinarily entertaining 2022 horror film, "X," his latest effort is required viewing, although it’s a much different kettle of fish.

The more familiarity one has with Jane Austen, the more likely the 2022 "Persuasion" is to be seen as an abomination.

Run Time: 2:03
U.S. Home Release Date: 2022-04-05
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Pedro Almodovar
Cast: Penelope Cruz, Milena Smit, Rossy De Palma, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Israel Elejalde

Thoroughly conventional by the director’s standards, the central narrative is accessible and offers a wrenching emotional experience.

Run Time: 2:06
U.S. Release Date: 2021-12-01
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Disturbing Images, Nudity)
Genre: Western/Drama
Director: Jane Campion
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Kodi Smit-McPhee

Perhaps not as powerful or wrenching as Campion intended for it to be but "The Power of the Dog" remains an unsettling piece of cinema.

If someone was to watch clips, they might be amused (or at least entertained) but it’s a different matter to sit through the entirety of Ed Wood’s opus of ineptitude.

Run Time: 1:38
U.S. Release Date: 2021-10-27
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Racism)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Rebecca Hall
Cast: Tessa Thompson, Ruth Negga, Andre Holland, Bill Camp, Alexander Skarsgård

The movie has a magnetic quality that’s all the more welcome because of all the weighty issues forming its foundation.

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Release Date: 2021-05-14
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Timur Bekmambetov
Cast: Valene Kane, Shazad Latif, Christine Adams, Amir Rahimzadeh, Morgan Watkins, Emma Cater

Worth seeing for the story it tells, the tension it generates, and the glimpse of potential it offers for future productions employing the "screenlife" technique.

Run Time: 2:06

Not for those who crave light, uplifting entertainment but for anyone who wants a precise, visceral experience from a motion picture.
