MovieDescription
The Bounty Hunter
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
When a warrant is issued for the arrest of a journalist (Jennifer Aniston), her ex-husbund (Gerald Butler) is sent after her. Cookie-cutter, Hollywood production-line crap barely worthy of a legitimate theatrical release. (M.S.)
The Bourne Identity
Released: 2002
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Bourne Legacy
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Jeremy Renner takes over from Matt Damon as a super-trained CIA agent, setting out to expose his superiors with help from scientist Rachel Weisz. The plot can be overcomplicated, but the film boasts great action and characters worth worrying over. (K.J.)
The Bourne Supremacy
Released: 2004
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Matt Damon is back as a CIA-trained assassin with a patchy memory
The Bourne Ultimatum
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In one of the best action movies in recent memory, the rogue CIA agent (Matt Damon) struggles to reconstruct his identity while bringing down elaborate conspiracies in the American intelligence community. (J.R.)
The Box
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this sci-fi morality tale, a cash-strapped couple (Cameron Diaz and James Marsden) receive a box with a button that, if pushed, will get them $1 million, but will also ensure that some far-off stranger is killed. The film is full of interesting ideas and fine performances, but is still likely to leave many moviegoers baffled. (M.S.)
The Boxer
Released: 1998
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Boxtrolls
Released: 2014
Rated: PG
Now Playing? Yes
A boy (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) must save his cave-dwelling friends from an evil exterminator in Laika's newest stop-motion film. Though the movie comes from the studio that brought us wonderful fare like Coraline, it lowers the fun quotient by dropping viewers into its proceedings without explaning the fanciful world where said proceedings take place. (M.S.)
The Boxtrolls 3D
Released: 2014
Rated: PG
Now Playing? Yes
A boy (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) must save his cave-dwelling friends from an evil exterminator in Laika's newest stop-motion film. Though the movie comes from the studio that brought us wonderful fare like Coraline, it lowers the fun quotient by dropping viewers into its proceedings without explaning the fanciful world where said proceedings take place. (M.S.)
The Boy Friend
Released: 1971
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A matter of taste, since like all Russell's movies, it's wildly excessive. But the right audience will find this multilayered adaptation of Sandy Wilson's "Roaring '20's" spoof charming and imaginative. It's a play within a play within a play: Wilson's musical, with a frightened ingenue thrust into the lead, is being given a threadbare production in a tacky British theater. Meanwhile, its flamboyant director is reimaging the dance numbers in his mind as a glorious homage to Busby Berkeley.
The Boy From Oklahoma
Released: 1954
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Low-key Western about a nonviolent sheriff; it reunites Michael Curtiz and Will Rogers Jr. after The Will Rogers Story. (M.W.)
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
There may not have been a big demand to see the Holocaust through the eyes of a child, but that’s exactly what we get in Mark Herman’s faithful adaptation of John Boyne’s heart-warming, bone-chilling young-adult novel. With crystal-blue eyes that take in everything around him, Asa Butterfield plays Bruno, the Auschwitz commandant’s son who befriends a sad-eyed youngster (Jack Scanlon) on the other side of the barbed-wire fence. (K.W.)
The Boy Who Turned Yellow
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A strange and rare little film; a fantasy, shot for the British Children's Film Foundation, which marked the last collaboration of "The Archers," Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, director-writers of Col. Blimp, Stairway To Heaven and The Red Shoes.
The Boy With Green Hair
Released: 1948
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An odd, haunting little parable about social and racial prejudice, centering on a war orphan whose hair turns green. Memorably done; it marked the film directorial debut of brilliant LaCrosse native Joseph Losey (The Servant, The Go-Between.)(M.W.)
The Boys Are Back
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Clive Owen turns in a nicely calibrated performance as a widower who learns to become a hands-on parent to his two young sons. The plot follows a fairly routine outline as the all-male household gropes its way toward equilibrium. (M.B.)
The Boys From Brazil
Released: 1978
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Cloned Hitlers, developed by insidious Dr. Mengele, threaten the world; Simon Wiesenthal-style Nazi hunter tracks them down. An absurd thriller premise (from the Ira Levin novel) that's further sabotaged by the relative inability of Gregory Peck (who carries built-in heroism) to convey Mengele's evil.
The Boys from Fengkuei
Released: 1983
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Bravados
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The last Western of Henry King, whose few ventures into the genre (The Winning Of Barbara Worth, The Gunfighter, Jesse James) were usually minor classics. This is a withering, extremely brutal example of his favorite form, the revenge or "pursuit" Western, that's worth seeing, despite a sentimental climax.
The Brave Bulls
Released: 1951
Rated:
Now Playing? No
One of the better non-Boetticher bullfight movies, based on Tom Lea's novel.
The Brave One
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Jodie Foster gives a nuanced performance as a woman who seeks revenge after a brutal attack. But for all the film’s sophistication and sensitivity, it turns out to be little more than an upscale B-movie about getting even. (S.D.)
The Brave One (1956)
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A boy and his bull - a sort of Mexican "Bossie Come Home." Historically notable because of the Oscar it earned for its pseudonymous scenarist, Dalton Trumbo - who was unable to accept it, or reveal his identity, because he was then on the blacklist. (M.W.)
The Bread, My Sweet
Released: 2002
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A romantic comedy set in the Italian section of Pittsburgh
The Break-Up
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This anti-romantic comedy about a mismatched couple (Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston) is often funny, sometimes uncomfortably so. Vaughn plays a guy's guy, and Aniston is a version of her sweet, spunky character from Friends. (K.W.)

The Breakfast Club
Released: 1985
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
John Hughes' coming-of-age tale about a motley group of high schoolers who get to know one another in detention.
The Breaking Point
Released: 1950
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The most faithful of the three versions of Ernest Hemingway's "To Have and Have Not," which strangely enough, seemed to translate better to film than anything else he wrote. The tragic saga of Harry Morgan, fishing skipper on the keys, whose last perception is "A man alone ain't got a fucking chance."
The Bride Of Frankenstein
Released: 1935
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The best of all the '30's Universal horror pictures; that weirdly Gothic, slightly few series, most of which were directed in juicily expressionistic style by James Whale. This is the movie with Dr. Praetorius and the little people in the bottles and Elsa Lanchester waking up under the electrodes with an Afro hairdo and a wild expression. The theme is alienation: How does a six-foot-five monster with pegs in his head and a criminally abnormal brain, find happiness and love? An eerie, droll little show.
The Bride Wore Black
Released: 1968
Rated:
Now Playing? No
François Truffaut films Cornell Woolrich's thriller about a woman's inexorable vendetta against the men she blames for her husband's murder. An homage to Hitchcock, complete with an excellent Bernard Herrmann score.
The Brides Of Dracula
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
More horror from the Hammer team; a good chiller from their peak years. Dracula's nefarious disciple prowls after toothsome lovelies with foul, lip smacking intent.
The Bridesmaid
Released: 2005
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A young man (Benoît Magimel) falls head over heels for a bridesmaid (Laura Smet) whoâ??s not what she seems. The film isnâ??t as tight and suspenseful as director Claude Chabrolâ??s best work, but the tightly wound Magimel is a delight to watch, and Smet makes it easy to understand the protagonistâ??s beguilement. (M.B.)
The Bridge of San Luis Rey
Released: 2004
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
