MovieDescription
The Ex
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A slacker (Zach Braff) is forced to work for his father-in-law when his wife (Amanda Peet) gets pregnant. There’s not much verve here, though The Ex is still more appealing than most movies that pass as comedies these days. (S.D.)
The Exile (1947)
Released: 1947
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Max Ophüls' account of King Charles II's exile in Holland.
The Exiles
Released: 1961
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Released: 2005
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Unlike The Exorcist, which had the advantage of getting their first, this film is boring as hell
The Exorcist
Released: 1973
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Expendables
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Action stars of ‘80s and ‘90s unite in a story of aging mercenaries (Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke) fighting an ex-CIA baddie (Eric Roberts). Stallone’s script seems thrown together, but the high-octane action scenes offer the requisite dumb fun. (M.S.)
The Expendables 2
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A quest for vengeance erupts when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) reunites mercenary leader Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham) and the rest of the Expendables gang. It's everything you think it is -- and less. (M.S.)
The Expendables 3
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? Yes
The group of mercenaries from The Expendables 2 (Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger) rescue a friend from danger and set out to stop a ruthless warlord. The writing is lazy, the directing is perfunctory and the special effects are unremarkable. (M.J.)
The Express
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Syracuse University is the coming-out ground of Ernie Davis (Rob Brown), the first African-American Heisman Trophy winner, whose rumpled, distempered coach (Dennis Quaid) is a stubborn soul in a fedora and NASA-issued horn-rimmed glasses. The film is a doozy, full of stadium heroics and quiet acts of dignity, mixed with heartbreaking racism. (J.R.)
The Exterminating Angel
Released: 1962
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Luis Buñuel's dinner party from hell.
The Extra Man
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The fired prep school teacher Louis (Paul Dano) rents a room from an aging would-be playwright (Kevin Kline) who escorts rich old women. The film doesn't explore Louis' struggle with his confused sexuality in as uncomfortable a manner as Jonathan Ames' novel, leaving this an appealing comic trifle. (S.R.)
The Eye
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Eye
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In a disappointing remake of an Asian horror film, an eye transplant allows Jessica Alba to see into the supernatural world. Alba's stiff acting doesn’t help matters. (M.S.)
The Eyes of Tammy Faye
Released:
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Fabulous Dorseys
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The big-band era's most famous siblings try to restage a few more feuds and a little sing for the director of The Jolson Story.
The Fabulous Dorseys

Rated:

The big-band era's most famous siblings try to restage a few more feuds and a little swing for the director of The Jolson Story.
The Fabulous World Of Jules Verne

The Face of Love
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Face You Deserve
Released: 2004
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A man confronts a midlife crisis in Miguel Gomes' fantasy comedy (LACIS Festival de Cine: New Portuguese Cinema).
The Faculty
Released: 1998
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This is pretty much an average episode of "The X-Files."
The Falcon's Brother
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
B-movie derring do in the Michael Arien-inspired series, with real-life siblings George Sanders and Tim Conway playing Falcon freres.
The Fall
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
At the dawn of Hollywood, a despairing, bedridden stuntman (Lee Pace) spins a fantastical story for the 5-year-old orphan (Catinca Untaru) he’s befriended. It’s a visually stunning fever dream of a film, with remarkable performances by Pace and Untaru. (M.S.)
The Fall of Otrar
Released: 1990
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Intrigue and turmoil precede Genghis Khan's systematic destruction of an Asian civilization. (TMS)
The Fall of the House of Usher
Released: 1928
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Fall of the Roman Empire
Released: 1964
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Fallen Idol
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Fallen Idol has more low-angle shots than almost any other film you could name, including Citizen Kane. And there's a reason: Throughout the movie, we constantly follow the viewpoint of a 9-year old boy, son of the ambassador at the French embassy in London, who has come to suspect his best friend, the embassy butler, of murder. A real tour de force, ingeniously written by Graham Greene, ingeniously shot by Carol Reed (it's sort of a warm-up for their next film, The Third Man) and brilliantly acted. The tension does not let up until the very last second.
The Falls
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Family
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A mafia clan struggle to adapt to a conventional life when the witness protection program places them in France. Though this film nods to Scorsese classics like Goodfellas, it is devoid of morality, playing like a videogame with a high body count. (S.D.)
The Family Jewels
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Jerry Lewis, at the point where he lost his American audience almost completely, and was most fervently embraced by the French film intelligentsia. It's another of his multiple-role outings: as seven potential guardians of a winsome orphan due for a huge inheritance. Frantic slapstick and sentimentality, in that old style Jean-Luc Godard described as "austere and comic."
The Family Man
Released: 2000
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Stars Nicolas Cage as Jack Campbell, a Manhattan-penthouse Master of the Universe who's about to be transported to another universe altogether.
