Without a question the best sequel in the classic Universal monster cycle, it ranks alongside "Frankenstein" (if not slightly above it) at the apex.

History has decreed that "Umberto D." is one of the best representations of neo-realism committed to film, presenting believably human characters and avoiding sentimentality in telling their stories.

U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-03-08
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Nudity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Director: Jean-Jacques Annaud
Cast: Everett McGill, Ron Perlman, Nameer El-Kadi, Rae Dawn Chong

The more accustomed we become to this interpretation of life at the dawn of humanity, the less alien it seems – an examination of an ancient culture with unfamiliar customs and morals.

Generally viewed not only as the best of the Burton/Schumacher series but one of the best superhero movies of the 20th century.

The format is dated but, curiously, that may be the best reason to watch it in the first place.

Cliched dramatic stories aside, the movie has a gritty charm and overall likeability that makes it worth revisiting

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Osgood Perkins
Cast: Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Boynton, Emma Roberts, James Remar, Lauren Holly

Although neither scary nor creepy (despite its "horror" classification), the movie is a puzzle whose picture fails to snap into focus until the final piece is in place.

Run Time: 1:50
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-02-06
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Drama
Director: Louis Malle

Issues about the current relevance of the dialogue aside, the presentation offers a clinic in the importance of the non-verbal aspects of filmmaking.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy

Fans of the Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright collaborations may find the material to be engaging but there is little to convince contemporary viewers that this is a forgotten gem.
