MovieDescription
The Girl on the Train in the Moon
Released: 2002
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A virtuous journalist (Michael Nyqvist) chips away at the conspiracy that has brutalized his goth-hacker friend and sometime lover (Noomi Rapace). The capper to the Dragon Tattoo trilogy brings into focus this sprawling, arresting saga, perhaps the cinematic event of the year. (K.B.)
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
Released: 2006
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Girl Who Played with Fire
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In the sequel, the weary journalist Mikael (Michael Nyqvist) and the mysterious goth hacker Lisbeth (Noomi Rapace) investigate sex trafficking, and Lisbeth faces a grim revelation. Not as bracing as the first film, but Lisbeth is a fascinating action hero. (K.B.)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Released: 2009
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A journalist (Michael Nyqvist) and an angry goth hacker (Noomi Rapace) solve a creepy mystery in this Swedish film of the wildly successful book. Memorable atmospherics help make this an arresting mystery thriller -- with some deeply disturbing stuff around the edges. (K.B.)
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In David Fincher’s adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s bestseller, a disgraced journalist (Daniel Craig) and enigmatic hacker (Rooney Mara) investigate a girl’s long-ago disappearance. The visual style is impressive, but the film is a plot-heavy potboiler that loses momentum. (S.R.)
The Girlfriend Experience
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Steven Soderbergh uses mostly nonprofessional actors in this low-budget digital film about a Manhattan escort (porn star Sasha Grey) who sells a whole experience of sophisticated conversation and sex. Soderbergh has nothing original to say about the commodification of sex, but his distinctive filmmaking style helps us see things from his heroine’s perspective. (M.B.)
The Giver
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? Yes
Based on Lois Lowry's influential YA novel, this film follows a teen (Brenton Thwaites) chosen to hold the memories of a dystopian society that's eliminated all conflict. The story's premise is interesting, but the movie begins to get lost as it pushes toward a wobbly climax. (M.B.)
The Glass House
Released: 2001
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Glass Key
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The second (and superior) of two movie adaptations of Dashiell Hammett's best novel, a blunt and brutal portrait of political corruption, murder and moral squalor among the wealthy.
The Glass Menagerie
Released: 1973
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Far the better of the two screen versions of Tennessee Williams' poignant and beautiful memory play about his young manhood, his domineering mother, his fragile sister, a gentleman caller and a unicorn with a shattered horn. Hepburn is an incandescent Amanda Wingfield. Back in the late '40s, interestingly, she wanted to play the daughter, Laura, and nearly succeeded in setting up a film version with herself, Spencer Tracy as the gentleman caller, and the legendary stage Amanda, Laurette Taylor. Warner Brothers, however, scotched these plans with their largely miscast 1950 movie adaptation; perhaps this version was Hepburn's revenge.
The Gleaners and I
Released: 2002
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Glenn Miller Story
Released: 1954
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Alternately enjoyable and sappy bio of the '40s most popular big band leader. The soundtrack hums with vintage Miller, and the guests include Gene Krupa, Frances Langford and Louis Armstrong as themselves.
The Go-Between
Released: 1971
Rated:
Now Playing? No
L.P. Hartley's tragic story of an interclass romance at an English manor at the century's turn - and the small boy who becomes the unwitting harbinger of love and disaster. Brilliant in every department; one of the great British films of the past decades.
The Goddess
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A furious peek at Hollywood's dream-making machinery by iconoclast Paddy Chayefsky, based, distantly, on the then-current career of Marilyn Monroe.
The Godfather
Released: 1972
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The midsection of the Corleone family saga, a tale of the underworld in which we learn how absolutely power corrupts, and how the murderers among us are not dissimilar to our rulers and corporations.
The Godfather of Green Bay
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Godfather: Part II
Released: 1974
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The second part of the epic American gangster film based on Mario Puzo's Mafioso bestseller.
The Godfather. Part II
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Francis Coppola and Mario Puzo's sequel to their 1972 The Godfather. Covering the events which preceded and followed the previous story, they manage to deepen and enrich it, to bring it very close to tragedy. If the first film was Jacobean, this one is Elizabethan.
The Gods Must Be Crazy
Released: 1980
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Gods of Times Square
Released: 2002
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Gold Rush
Released: 1925
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
In this classic silent comedy, the Little Tramp (Charles Chaplin) heads north to join in the Klondike gold rush. Trapped in a small cabin by a blizzard, the Tramp is forced to share close quarters with a successful prospector (Mack Swain) and a fugitive (Tom Murray). Eventually able to leave the cabin, he falls for a lovely barmaid (Georgia Hale), trying valiantly to win her affections. When the prospector needs help locating his claim, it appears the Tramp's fortunes may change. (TMS)
The Golden Age of Buster Keaton
Released: 1978
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The favorite comedian of both Frederic Garcia Lorca and Samuel Beckett, one of the true geniuses of the silent film - in a compilation of scenes from his greatest period. Here is the matchlessly eloquent James Agee with a few words about Buster: "No other comedian could do as much with the dead pan". He used this great sad, motionless face to suggest various related things: a one-track mind near the track's end of pure insanity, mulish imperturbability under the wildest of circumstances, how a dead a human being can get and still be alive, an awe-inspiring sort of patience and power to endure, proper to granite but uncanny in flesh and blood...Perhaps because of his "dry" wit, there are people who never cared much for Keaton. Those who do cannot care mildly.
The Golden Bowl
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Golden Compass
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Philip Pullman's anti-religious young-adult book has been watered down in this cinematic adaptation, which comes up with some jaw-dropping visuals but loses track of the things that really matter in a fantasy epic: story and characters. Still, Dakota Blue Richards is delightful as the rambunctious girl who will save the world from a repressive dictatorship. (K.W.)
The Golden Hawk
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on one of Frank Yerby's ubiquitous '50s bestsellers. Yerby, though his race was discreetly concealed at the time, was one of America's first universally popular black writers. The film is full of lusty rogues, fiery damsels, cutthroats and slugabeds, all wining and wassailing and swashing and buckling back in the 17th century Caribbean. Heave ho!..
The Golden Stallion
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
"From the day of his birth", according to the WOR program guide., "Trigger proves to be an outstanding horse, constantly helping Roy." (Please, Trigger! I'd rather do it myself!)
The Golem
Released: 1920
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
In 16th century Prague, Rabbi Loew (Albert Steinruck) interprets an alignment of stars as a sign that disaster is about to befall the city's Jews. The following day, Emperor Luhois (Otto Gebuhr) bans Loew's people from Prague, prompting the rabbi to build a statue, known as the Golem (Paul Wegener), that he hopes to animate as a savior. Brought to life by an evil spirit, Astaroth, the creature is, at first, gentle and compassionate. That, however, quickly changes as the creature goes insane. (TMS)
The Good Earth
Released: 1937
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Pearl Buck's Nobel Prizewinning epic of the Chinese peasantry, done with all the respect MGM could muster. As the earth mother, mysterious Luis Rainer won her second Oscar, only to have her career destroyed shortly afterwards by the petulant Louis B. Mayer.
The Good Fairy
Released: 1935
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Based on a Ferenc Molnár play, this 1935 drama revolves around a theater usher who uses a wealthy suitor’s fortune to help a poor doctor.
