Everything emphasizes the Tall Tale aspects, from the electric, trippy cinematography to the larger-than-life performances of the lead actors.

Run Time: 2:04
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-05-03
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: Adventure
Director: John Huston
Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Walter Huston, Tim Holt, Bruce Bennett, Alfonso Bedoya

A meditation about the effects of greed and isolation on the human psyche, this Oscar darling gave Humphrey Bogart his darkest role.

For the first two-thirds, it's an effecting and effective tale of female bonding; however, toward the end, melodramatic contrivances result in an unlikely climax and unsatisfying denouement.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-07-07
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated/Musical
Director: Walt Dohrn, David P. Smith
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, James Corden, Rachel Bloom, Kelly Clarkson, Sam Rockwell, George Clinton, Mary J. Blige

Too little use of a rich palette of music and too much peddling of important themes like diversity and the evils of cultural appropriation.

Although "Terms of Endearment" may be a passable way to spend a couple of hours, to label it as the Best Picture of 1983 (or any year) is a miscarriage.

Run Time: 2:08
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-01-28
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Science Fiction/Action
Director: Tim Miller
Cast: Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna

Feels like an echo of "T2," doing many of the same things and offering similar narrative perturbations but without the verve of the earlier movie.

Director: Yasujiro Ozu
Cast: Chishu Ryu, Chieko Higashiyama, So Yamamura, Haruko Sugimura, Setsuko Hara, Kyoko Kagawa, Shiro Osaka

"Tokyo Story" is as much a journey of discovery as it is an opportunity to reflect. The characters populating this film aren’t strangers. They are our parents, our children, ourselves.

A respectable afterthought sequel that is paradoxically welcome and unnecessary.

Run Time: 1:52
U.S. Release Date: 2019-05-10
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (War Violence)
Genre: Drama
Director: Dome Karukoski
Cast: Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins, Derek Jacobi, Colm Meaney, Harry Gilby, Patrick Gibson, Anthony Boyle, Tom Glynn-Carney

More like the dramatization of an Encyclopedia Britannica entry than a fully rendered movie, "Tolkien" loses sight of the character.

Run Time: 1:46
U.S. Release Date: 2019-05-03
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: AJ Jankel
Cast: Anna Paquin, Holliday Grainger, Emun Elliott, Gregor Selkirk, Lauren Lyle, Kate Dickie

The framing of characters is black-and-white and the far-too-pat ending offers an unearned resolution.
