MovieDescription
The Fighter
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A former boxer in Lowell, Mass. (Christian Bale) trains his younger brother (Mark Wahlberg) to be a champion. Flawless performances and direction by David O. Russell make this a brilliant movie about self-delusions and inner strength. (M.B.)
The Fighting 69th
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Warner Brothers' "Irish Mafia"--who were usually trading bullets in some pasteboard gangster Valhalla - join forces for something a little closer to home: a tribute to the Famed World War I All-Erin Shamrock regiment. I like Bill Keighley, but it's a crying shame Raoul Walsh didn't do this one.
The Fighting Seabees
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Brawling W.W.II buddies defend China. (M.W.)

The File on Thelma Jordan
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Stanwyck works her evil wiles on another hapless straight-arrow schmo. A late film noir by one of the masters, Robert Slodmak (The Killers, Phantom Lady, The Spiral Staircase).(M.W.)
The Films of Jay Rosenblatt
Released: 2000
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The â??Practicing Jewsâ? conference screens recent Rosenblatt films, including King of the Jews, I Used to Be a Filmmaker and Afraid So.

The Final Countdown
Released: 1980
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Tepid time trickery and the old "Twilight Zone" ploy: An aircraft carrier gets warped back to Dec. 7, 1941, just before the Pearl Harbor invasion. (The substance, in fact, of the "Twilight Zone's pilot show, "The Time Element.")
The Final Destination
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The horror franchise finds ghastly ways to kill kids who’ve escaped a catastrophe, only to be stalked by the unseen hand of death. There’s little thrill in the fourth installment. (M.S.)
The Final Destination 3D
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The horror franchise finds ghastly ways to kill kids who’ve escaped a catastrophe, only to be stalked by the unseen hand of death. There’s little thrill in the fourth installment. (M.S.)
The Final Season
Released: 2007
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The baseball team at a small-town high school always wins, but the principal needs to hire a coach (Sean Astin) who will lose so the townsfolk won’t feel bad about merging with a bigger school. There’s passion aplenty in this would-be inspirational film, just no character development or coherent storytelling. (T.B.)
The Firemen's Ball
Released: 1968
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A very simple subject - a small town soiree for the local firemen, where everything goes wrong: the guests, the food, the accommodations, the beauty contest...while outside, a poor man's house is burning right to the ground. This movie came at the tail end of the Czech "New Wave", and since it wasn't released here until after the fall of Prague, and the end of Dubcek's period of liberalization, it never achieved the acclaim it deserved. But, to me , it's the gem of the entire "New Wave". It's also a beautiful structured and understated little masterpiece of comedy which stands comparison with the Chaplin and Keaton silents. The writer-director, Milos Forman, of course, emigrated to the States, and later gained all the praise he could have wanted--and perhaps a shade more than he deserved -- for his film of Ken Kesey's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."
The Firm
Released: 1993
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The First Beautiful Thing
Released: 2010
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Italian writer-director Paolo Virzì's drama examines relations between a dying mother and her son.
The First Grader
Released: 2011
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A kindly Kenyan teacher (Naomie Harris) fights to keep in her first-grade class an elderly veteran of the Mau Mau uprising (Oliver Litondo), who wants to learn how to read. Harris is wonderful and the photography is gorgeous, but the mixing of brutal and inspirational elements is ungainly. (K.B.)
The First Time
Released: 1952
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Frank Tashlin puts a Whoopee Cushion under the 1950s
The Five Obstructions
Released: 2003

The Five-Year Engagement
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this likable, low-key romantic comedy, a chef (Jason Segel) puts his career on the backburner to follow his fiancée (Emily Blunt) to Michigan for graduate school. Their troubled relationship is fodder for comedy and unfussy pathos. (K.J.)
The Fixer
Released: 1968
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Bernard Malamud's spare, devastating tale of Jakov Bok; an unjustly imprisoned Jewish handyman who wages a stark moral battle with his persecutors in Czarist Russia--his battlefield is the jail cell, or sometimes a courtroom, and mostly his own soul. Next to Johnny Got His Gun, this eloquent, powerful screenplay is probably Dalton Trumbo's best, obviously evocative of his long prison and blacklist years. The production, however, leans too heavily on the spirit of David Lean to truly catch its subject. (What was needed was probably something more like Robert Bresson's style in A Man Escaped.)
The Flame and the Arrow
Released: 1950
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Swashbuckling and rebellion in medieval Italy; a high-spirited costume adventure with leftist undertones. (M.W.)
The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice
Released: 1964
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Flight of the Phoenix
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The old chestnut about the plane crash in uncharted wastes, and the desperate attempt by the passengers and crew to rebuild and fly it out...but it's never been done better. Amazing plot twists, brilliant direction and a smashing cast. Watch it for 15 minutes...then see if you can pull yourself away before the climax.
