Walter Wanger-produced, Don Siegel-directed prison drama from 1954 still packs some potency. Matthew Bernstein's excellent commentary helps put it into proper context for modern viewers.

Deeply disturbing, this detective story plays out largely in a psychiatrist's office. Richard Burton is the doctor and Peter Firth is his patient. Both men are seriously troubled.

The addition of Danny Glover helps elevate Danny Trejo's "other" franchise, barely. Part three is already in production, but Trejo fans would most likely prefer a third Machete film.

Based on Pat Conroy's memoir The Water is Wide, this 1974 obscurity is a terrifically entertaining entry in the inspirational-teacher subgenre.

Great performances by Sally Field and Ron Leibman keep Martin Ritt's rabble-rouser well worth watching.

It's hard to deny the technical virtuosity on display in this second installment of Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, nor the financial wisdom of stretching the slim novel into three parts.

It's kind of fun seeing Stallone and De Niro spoof their onscreen boxing legacies, but this comedy is uneven at best.
April 8, 2014 8:50 AM ET
One of the most underrated and overlooked films of 2013, this supernatural action flick should be approached with an open mind.

The fifth go-round for Tinker Bell and her fairy friends, this time centered on a renegade alchemist fairy named Zarina and her "friend," one James Hook.

Remade in 2005 by the Farrelly brothers as a Jimmy Fallon/Drew Barrymore vehicle, this is the Nick Hornby-scripted original.

A hit in 1974, this Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges buddy flick remains hugely entertaining. Michael Cimino's directorial debut.
March 26, 2014 3:45 PM ET
Sickly sweet and criminally unfunny, this sperm donor comedy (a remake of a 2011 Canadian hit) was a deserved bomb.

Long before he led The A-Team, George Peppard earned his pilot's license and did some flying in this 1966 World War I epic about a man determined to earn the highest commendation.

Young star Sophie Nelisse carries this gentle tale of life in Nazi Germany as Liesel, a girl who discovers the joys of literacy and embraces the written word as a form of escape and enlightenment.

Nominated for five Academy Awards, this 1965 epic tells the story of Michelangelo's four-year struggle to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

Often misremembered as a direct-to-video title, the further adventures of Mowgli and Baloo (which play out a lot like the original 1967 adventure, to be honest) received a wide theatrical release in 2003.

What it lacks in narrative focus, it makes up for in terms of realistically drawn characters. The primary cast, led by Christian Bale, is in fine form.

A billion dollars worth of box office worldwide can't be wrong, can it? Disney's 53rd entry in the Animated Classics series is tuneful entertainment with eye-popping visuals and great voice acting.

An unflinching telling of the true story of a free man, Solomon Northup, who was kidnapped in 1841 and sold into slavery. Winner of the 2013 Academy Award for Best Picture.
