ReelViews for PG-13 movies

News of the World

News of the World, based on the 2016 novel by Paulette Jiles, is a road trip Western where the genre serves less as the focus than as a backdrop to the relationship between the paternalistic Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks) and the 10-y...

Wonder Woman 1984

The ability of superhero movies to maintain momentum from installment-to-installment has proven over the years to be difficult, so it’s perhaps no surprise that the sequel to 2017’s well-received Wonder Woman fails to live up to the standa...

Midnight Sky, The

It’s difficult to express how refreshing it is to encounter a dystopian film that hasn’t been developed for the YA market. Although flavored at times by its twin inspirations Gravity and The Revenant, The Midnight Sky maintains its own uni...

Greenland

Watching Greenland, I was reminded of how long it has been since a major studio has released an “old-school” disaster movie like this one. Perhaps the film might have worked better had it come out a year ago but this is an extraordinarily ...

Prom, The

Despite its awkward and uneven elements, The Prom offers enough high-energy moments to be seen as a passable motion picture adaptation of the stage play written by Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin. As movie adaptations of musicals go, this one is ...

Hillbilly Elegy

Here’s a rare example of a Netflix prestige film that neither runs too long nor overstays its welcome. While some of the A-list directors working for the streaming distributor have taken the opportunity to meander and add bloat to otherwise ...

Come Play

Sometimes, the lure of generic horror tropes can be too strong for even the most high-minded films to avoid. Come Play is an example. The premise intrigues with its potential – the idea that just because something looks like a traditional ...

Rebecca

1940’s Rebecca was the only Alfred Hitchcock-directed film to win a Best Picture Oscar. Considering the filmmaker’s incredible body of work, that may seem odd, but it’s as much a testimony to the popularity of the source material, Daphe ...

Honest Thief

It’s probably fair to say that Liam Neeson could do this role in his sleep. Perhaps that would explain the curious lack of energy not only in his performance but in the production as a whole. Ever since Neeson became accepted as an action st...

Rainy Day in New York, A
