Hugh Jackson plays iconic P.T. Barnum in “The Greatest Showman.”
The 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, the 16-year-old grandson of billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, is told with solid style and suspense in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World."
First thing's first: Though it features a character named "P.T. Barnum," "The Greatest Showman" is in no way a factual account of the life of the celebrated 19th-century circus founder and huckster. In fact, you'll have to completely set aside any unsavory stories you may have heard about the real-life Barnum, because this one is played by the ever-charming Hugh aJckman. Resistance is futile.
With its title tongue-in-cheekily evoking "I, Claudius," another epic tale of madness and debauchery, the dramatic comedy "I, Tonya" revisits - with verve, intelligence, scathing humor and more than a touch of sadness - the bizarre 1994 attack on figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, by goons associated with the camp of Kerrigan's athletic rival, Tonya Harding.
A welcome disturbance in the Force, Rian Johnson's "The Last Jedi" is, by wide measure, the trippiest, scrappiest and most rule-breaking "Star Wars" adventure yet.
"The Post " is kind of like the Yankees of movies. A Steven Spielberg directed film about the Pentagon Papers starring Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep and a murderer's row of all your favorite television character actors (Jesse Plemons! Bob Odenkirk! Carrie Coon! Sarah Paulson!)? It doesn't even see…
The pleasures of art, music, food, natural beauty and sexual awakening are evoked and celebrated in "Call Me by Your Name," an almost sinfully enjoyable movie that both observes and obeys the languid rhythms of a torrid Italian summer.
The basic idea is intriguing: A woman, upset that after several months the local police have not found the killer of her teen daughter, pays to advertise on three billboards that call out the police on their lack of progress.
“Coco” is a bold and colorful animated dazzler of a movie with a story of family that goes straight to the heart of young and old alike, which means it’s the kind of movie that Pixar used to make.
This is a time when movies arrive for the whole family to enjoy, like "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," as well as prestige pictures for awards season.
Author A.A. Milne brought comfort to the people of England following World War I, telling the gentle stories of a bear who loves honey and his forest friends, including a piglet, a donkey and a tiger named Tigger.
“Only the Brave” is the kind of movie that it is impossible to not like. I dare you to not fall for this tale of firefighter heroism and tragedy.
As if on cue, "Only the Brave" - a deeply moving drama about firefighters - arrives in theaters, just as the catastrophic wildfires in Northern California seem to be winding down.
The story must have proven irresistible to Tom Cruise: The tale of Barry Seal is dangerous, charged with high-flying action and utterly ridiculous — and it’s all true.
It is possible to like a film and be disappointed by it, and “It” is that kind of movie for me and I imagine for other fans of Stephen King’s book who may have expected too much.
Jump scares in horror movies are a dime a dozen and less effective than they used to be, but “It” — the adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 killer clown novel of the same name — has a fair share of whoppers and one all-timer that will jolt even seasoned scary movie connoisseurs right out of their seats.
