MPAA Rating: "PG" (Disturbing Images)
Genre: Horror/Comedy
Director: Robert Zemeckis
Cast: Jahzir Bruno, Octavia Spencer, Anne Hathaway, Stanley Tucci, Chris Rock

A forgettable, pre-fabricated movie in the "Goosebumps" tradition.

"Juvenile" is too sophisticated a word to describe this dumber-than-dumb, unfunnier-than-unfunny comedy.

Many aspects of the production are dated, but the movie has become embedded into the childhood experiences of many Generation X’ers.

Not a lot happens during the course of "The Witches" and that’s part of the problem.

Director: Marc Meyers
Cast: Alexandra Daddario, Maddie Hasson, Amy Forsyth, Johnny Knoxville, Keean Johnson, Logan Miller, Austin Swift

Not enough to expand the movie’s appeal beyond the narrow demographic of fans representing its target audience.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Gavin O'Connor
Cast: Ben Affleck, Janina Gavankar, Michaela Watkins, Al Madrigal, Melvin Gregg

Although the screenplay occasionally falters, Affleck’s performance is rock-solid throughout and that makes "The Way Back" a journey worth taking.

Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Richard Linklater

MPAA Rating: "G"
Genre: Animated
Director: Yoshifumi Kondo
Cast: Yoko Honna, Issei Takahashi, Shigeru Tsuyuguchi, Keiju Kobayashi, Maiko Kayama, Yoshimi Nakajima

An affecting and endearing collaboration between Miyazaki and Kondo, it weds a coming-of-age story with a flight of fancy to good effect.

Eschews the simplistic animated story arc as it explores the power of imagination and innovation to overcome grief.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Thriller

An intriguing blend of globetrotting neo-noir and road trip plot elements, it often seems on the cusp of greatness without ever getting there.
