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

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Release Date: 2020-05-08
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Lara Jean Gallagher
Cast: Otmara Marrero, Sydney Sweeney, Sonya Walger, Will Brittain

The way in which it is presented by first-time feature director Lara Jean Gallagher is slow, awkward, and pretentious.

Run Time: 2:04
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-06-02
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.

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: 2:30
U.S. Release Date: 2019-11-27
MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Documentary
Director: Michael Apted
Cast:

Provokes self-reflection in a way that few other movies can and is destined to be remembered long after those who have made it and appeared in it are no longer around.

Run Time: 1:50
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-03-24
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: War
Director: Sam Mendes
Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman

A war movie of uncommon vision - by turns startling, gut-wrenching, exhausting, and satisfying.

Run Time: 1:41
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-03-10
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Nick Bruno, Troy Quane
Cast: Will Smith, Tom Holland, Rashida Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, DJ Khaled, Reba McEntire

The filmmakers seem unconcerned about appealing to anyone who isn’t a 9-year old boy; aside from the occasional throw-away line, there’s little here to interest adults.

Run Time: 2:16
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-04-14
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Destin Daniel Cretton
Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, O’Shea Jackson Jr.

Despite the whiff of “Oscar bait” surrounding the production, it’s a well-made, affecting tale about do-gooders who do good rather than merely muddying the waters.

Run Time: 2:15
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-04-07
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Drama
Director: Greta Gerwig
Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Chris Cooper, Louis Garrel, James Norton, Bob Odenkirk, Timothee Chalamet, Laura Dern, Eliza Scanlen, Florence Pugh, Emma Watson, Meryl Streep

Because of the strength of the acting (Ronan’s in particular) and Gerwig’s unusual reworking of the novel’s chronology and ending, it deserves to be seen.

Acting is the reason to see "Bombshell" and it starts with Charlize Theron.
