Now Playing? No
The big House

The Big Knife
Released: 0000
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Clifford Odets - who endured the agonies of the damned in Hollywood after moving there from his heyday with the Group Theater - enacts a terrible vengeance. This is the blackest, most pitiless, most savage "inside" picture of American movies ever. The portrait is one of pervasive moral squalor: a major movie star has committed negligent homicide, and his studio, up to its sweaty armpits in corruption, is trying to cover all his tracks. Robert Aldrich directs this pessimistic, uncompromising tale with all the stops pulled. The Big Knife is a screaming, air-conditioned nightmare, slashing away at its subject with cold, mordant fury(M.W.)
The Big Lebowski
Released: 1998
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A stoner (Jeff Bridges) and his bowling buddies get involved in a case of mistaken identity in the Coen Brothers' 1998 comedy.
The Big Noise
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Rotund tie-twiddler and his weepy pal deliver a bomb. Maltin calls it L. & H.'s worst, though director Mal St. Clair showed some spark in the '20s.
The Big One
Released: 1997
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Big Parade
Released: 1925
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A businessman's son (John Gilbert) enlists in the Army during World War I and learns about responsibility the hard way.
The Big Red One
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Big Sky
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Perhaps this was Hawks' apologia for the villainous, depersonalized Indians in one sequence of Red River; it's a compassionate, humane, sharply drawn portrayal of an interracial triangle during a fur-trading expedition up the Missouri, based on the famous novel by A.B. Guthrie Jr. The film is less famous, but it shouldn't be. It's one of the great Westerns of the '50s.
The Big Sleep
Released: 1946
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Phillip Marlowe invades the perfumed, rotten world of the guilty rich - with a dying old millionaire in his orchid hothouse, a nymphomaniac stripped for action in a gay pornographer's bungalow, and a desperate little man who dies beside the cold filing cabinets of a featureless business office. Based on Raymond Chandler's first novel, perhaps the greatest of all the '40s films noirs. According to legend, the film was so confusing that neither Hawks, Faulkner nor Chandler could explain who killed whom at one point. Actually much of the confusion was caused by Warner Brothers, who demanded -a year after the film was shot - that Hawks shoot and cut in new footage with Bogart and Bacall. This footage was great (it includes the classic race track double entendres), but it chopped up an already Byzantine plot. It doesn't matter: Bogey and his menacing monochrome backgrounds were never better.
The Big Steal
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Mitchum's first movie after his notorious pot bust. A crisp, punchy chase thriller; it was such a big hit that the studios immediately forgave him.
The Big Store
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Mustachioed Shamus Wolf Flywheel and the two inept assistance's uncover dirty doings in the department store. Midlevel Marx - still better than most.
The Big Tease
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Big Trees
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Another Example of the oft-made saga of ruthless speculators trying to rape the forests (in this case, California's lofty redwoods), with Douglas in another of his patented '50's "charming heel" roles.
The Big Uneasy
Released: 2010
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Comedian Harry Shearer's documentary about Hurricane Katrina.
The Big Wedding
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A long-divorced couple (Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton) pretend to be happily married when their adopted son’s conservative biological mother arrives for his marriage ceremony. The antics are toothless, and director Justin Zackham plays to the cast’s weaknesses. (K.J.)
The Big Year
Released: 2011
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Three avid birders (Jack Black, Steve Martin, Owen Wilson) compete to identify the most individual bird species in North America over the course of a calendar year. The film lacks edge but has many satisfying comic moments. (S.R.)
The Bigamist
Released: 1953
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Perils of bigamy: one of the Ida Lupino's more interesting directorial efforts.
The Billion Dollar Brain
Released: 1967
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Len Deighton "Harry Palmer" spy series was always more style-conscious than the Bonds, and this is the most stylish of the lot - an early effort by soon-to-be enfant terrible Ken Russell.(M.W.)
The Bird With The Crystal Plumage
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Stylish paranoid thriller; unknown to me, it has a large cult following. (M.W.)
The Birds
Released: 1963
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Alfred Hitchcock's chilling 1963 tale of apocalypse-by-bird is as technically amazing as anything he ever did.
The Birds, the Bees and the Italians
Released: 1966
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This 1966 farce exposes the sexual underbelly of a small Italian town while making subtle observations about the police, court system and church.
The Bishop Misbehaves
Released: 1935
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Shame on you, Bishop. What kind of example is that to set for our confused and impressionable modern youth? (M.W.)
The Bishop's Wife
Released: 1947
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Suave, dimpled angel messes around in the bishopric. (M.W.)
The Black Cat
Released: 1934
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Devil worshipping doom in an art deco house built on a graveyard and wired with explosives. Erie, bizarre, a horror sleeper. (M.W.)
The Black Dahlia
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
James Ellroyâ??s 1987 novel about the unsolved Black Dahlia murder in 1940s Los Angeles gets the Grand Guignol treatment from director Brian De Palma. The movieâ??s almost an incoherent mess, and both Josh Hartnett and Aaron Eckhart are miscast as a pair of cops, but there are many moments of pleasure as things spin more and more out of control. (K.W.)
The Black Knight
Released: 1954
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A little Arthurian derring do. (M.W.)
The Black Legion
Released: 1936
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Tough expose of a proto-Fascist Klan-style mob.(M.W.)
The Black Orchid
Released: 1959
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Urban soaper about the "second time around" of a gangster's widow, done with some of Ritt's usual warmth and humanism.
