Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

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

Genre: Animated

Cast: Duncan Watson, Stuart Brotman, Gail Davis, Liam Martin, Jimmy Ahrens, Melanie Kohn, Bill Melendez

As a franchise and a brand, Peanuts undoubtedly has value, but this particular chapter is hermetically sealed in the 1970s.

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.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Vaughn Stein
Cast: Lily Collins, Simon Pegg, Connie Nielsen, Chace Crawford, Patrick Warburton, Marque Richardson, Michael Beach

Despite a few effective “gotcha!” moments and Pegg’s performance, the movie is too artificial and undercooked to work.

MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama
Director: Kenji Mizoguchi
Cast: Yoshiaki Hanayagi, Kyoko Kagawa, Kinuyo Tanaka, Eitaro Shindo

The visual storytelling allows us to disconnect from our modern-day reality and enter an historical period that is as different from our own as the black-and-white is from color.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Scott Teems
Cast: Shea Whigham, Michael Shannon, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Bobby Soto, Bruno Bichir, Alvaro Martinez

One note portrayals, skin deep characters, and a glacial pace all combine to prevent "The Quarry" from succeeding either as a slow-burn thriller or a message-oriented drama.

Run Time: 1:31

MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure

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

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Horror/Comedy
Director: Craig Zobel
Cast: Betty Gilpin, Hilary Swank, Ike Barinholtz, Wayne Duvall, Ethan Suplee, Emma Roberts, Amy Madigan, Reed Birney

A solid throwaway B-movie that probably thinks it has more to say than it actually does but is entertaining nonetheless.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-06-07
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Nudity, Violence)
Genre: Drama

Being fascinating and unique, two qualities unquestionably in evidence here, don’t automatically deserve praise.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: Adventure
Director: Richard Gray
Cast: Angus Macfadyen, Anna Hutchinson, Zach McGowan, Gabriel Bateman, Talitha Bateman, Brandon Lessard, Patrick Fugit

Is too long by at least a half-hour for the surprisingly slight tale it has to tell.
