MovieDescription
The Chapman Report 1962
Released: 1962
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Suburban housewives (including one case of frigidity and one nymphomaniac) reveal all to a Kinsey-style researcher. Cukor handles the Irving Wallace trash best seller with taste and style, and he directs the actresses beautifully--but the studio, unfortunately, cut this movie to bloody shreds. (M.W.)
The Charge Of The Light Brigade
Released: 1936
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Thunderingly inaccurate account of the fabled charge; here "the reason why" appears to be an unrequited love affair. But Curtiz staged the action with such fire and daredeviltry that the last 10 minutes explode on the screen. (one of the stunt men died executing Curtiz' maneuvers, leading to his long-term rap for directorial sadism. )

The Chase
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
On a hot summer night, a volatile Texas oil town--fueled by booze and sex--simmers and explodes when every one learns that a good old boy gone wrong, fugitive Bubber Reeves, is on his way back home. Both screenwriter Lillian Hellman and director Arthur Penn have disowned The Chase, which they feel was savaged by the producers; Robin Wood, on the other hand call it Penn's "first indisputable masterpiece" and his completest film...(It) captures that feeling of latent or erupting violence...which is to some extent the air we all breathe. "So it does; this is a dynamite blast of a movie, with an unbeatable cast. The editing may have hurt it, but it only seems crazy or overly violent if you haven't visited the Deep South and spent a few hot nights there.

The Chess Players
Released: 1977
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Satyajit Ray's 1977 story of 19th-century British adventuring in India.
The Children of Huang Shi
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This large-canvas, exotic-locations, cast-of-hundreds epic aspires to be the Lawrence of Arabia of the Sino-Japanese War. But the script's a real turkey, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers is woefully miscast as a British journalist who wants to blow the lid on Japanese atrocities but instead becomes nanny to 60 orphans. (K.W.)
The Children We Sacrifice
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Children's Hour
Released: 1962
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Lillian Hellman's drama of scandal, hypocrisy and prejudice in a girl's school. William Wyler had done a severely bowdlerized version (These Three) in 1936; this time he kept the lesbian theme and undertones intact.
The China Syndrome
Released: 1979
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Meltdown threatens at a nuclear plant, while it nefarious officials attempt a huge cover-up. This "anti-Nuke" thriller hit big on the very eve of Three Mile Island--but, despite that fortuitous opening, it's a conventional, if well-acted melodrama.
The Choirboys
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on Joe Wambaugh's fictionalized reminiscences of the off-duty antics of the Los Angeles Police Dept. Tremendously gauche, although the sections in the worst taste are actually the most entertaining.
The Chorus
Released: 2004
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An unlikely teacher turns out to inspire his students more than anyone thought he could... the French version
The Chosen
Released: 1982
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Christmas Candle
Released: 2013
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Industrial Revolution threatens to stamp out the legend of an angel that bestows a miracle upon a village candlemaker every 25 years. The film achieves some emotional momentum but gets mired in an overabundance of metaphors. (L.B.)
The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
This second installment in the C.S. Lewis-derived kid-flick series follows the same template: British youngsters save the day, with a little help from the man – er, lion – upstairs. There are some new critters, but director Andrew Adamson still hasn’t found a way to infuse these stories with magic. (K.W.)
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Released: 2010
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The latest in the series based on C.S. Lewis' books nearly drowns in special effects. The movie's not bad; it's just a little humorless, humanless, sparkless. Simon Pegg, Liam Neeson and Tilda Swinton provide classy adult support to a trio of young adventurers. (M.W.)
