MovieDescription
The Great Imposter
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Conman chameleon hoodwinks the world. Based on the exploits of Ferdinand Demara. (M.W.)
The Great Lie
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Massive turbulence between the widow and pregnant first wife of a slightly careless adventurer; a good soap from Davis' peak period.
The Great Man
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Memorial for deceased television idol reveals him as despicable cur who screwed everybody. A sort of combination of "Citizen Kane" and "Face in the Crowd," full of well-deserved satirical potshots at '50s TV.
The Great Man Votes
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
In his later years, John Barrymore tended to parody his own debauchery in tawdry vehicles unworthy of him. This movie is the exception - the touching tale of an alcoholic academic riding a corrupt political campaign to unexpected glory. (M.W.)
The Great McGinty
Released: 1940
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No

The Great McGinty
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
In a dive south of the border, bartender Dan McGinty (Brian Donlevy) stops a young man from committing suicide after a moment of dishonesty, and relates how a moment of honesty brought him down in a flashback. As a young man, McGinty joins a crooked political boss and rises from extortionist to alderman. Urged by the boss to marry his secretary to give respectability to his run for mayor, McGinty agrees -- only to fall in love with his wife and decide to do an honest thing for once in his life. (TMS)
The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid
Released: 1972
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In 1877, Frank (John Pearce) and Jesse James (Robert Duvall) are expecting to receive amnesty from the state of Missouri for all their previous crimes. But the railroad owners whom the brothers have repeatedly robbed intervene, stopping the amnesty and sending the Pinkertons to kill the gang. Meanwhile, Frank and Jesse team up with Cole Younger (Cliff Robertson) and his gang, and plot to rob the biggest bank west of the Mississippi, located in Northfield, Minn. (TMS)
The Great Voyage
Released: 2004
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Great Waldo Pepper
Released: 1975
Rated:
Now Playing? No
More golden-hazed macho nostalgia (cum Butch Cassidy) from Hill, Goldman and Redford; this time the doomed, anachronistic hero is a '30s barnstorming pilot. One thing I've always wondered: how come there's no (blank) flakfire in the climactic movie dogfight?
The Great Ziegfeld, Part 1
Released: 1936
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Overblown and foolishly reverent bio of Broadway Folliemeister Flo Ziegfeld - who is treated rather as if he were Woodrow Wilson. The highlights are an eye-poppingly elaborate staging of "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody" - on a revolving circular stairway that resembles the Tower of Babel; and Luis Rainer's justly famous hysteria scene on the telephone.
The Greatest Game Ever Played
Released: 2005
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Greatest Movie Ever Sold
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Morgan Spurlock's comic documentary examines the perils of product placement in films. Spurlock is a canny entertainer, and there are lots of funny moments, but he isn't convincing when he shifts to bashing advertising generally. (K.B.)
The Greatest Show On Earth
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Cecil B. DeMille who usually makes a circus out of history, here gives us the history of a circus. Afflicted with DeMille's usual giganticism and straight-faced absurdities but fun all the same.
The Greatest Story Ever Told, Pt. 1
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Beautifully photographed but overly reverent adaptation of the Gospels According to Fulton Oursler. (Carl Sandburg is listed a a "creative collaborator" - which should give you an idea of the tone). The all-star cast provides a little unintentional humor; at the showing I attended, a gentleman who had been quietly slumbering behind me suddenly became animated during the appearance of John Wayne as the Converted Roman Centurion and yelled out, "When's the fight in the barroom?" When shushed and informed there was none, he retorted angrily: "Every John Wayne movie has a fight in a barroom!"
The Green Berets
Released: 1968
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The subject: the Vietnam War. The Locale: Never-Never Land. Asked about this movie, Howard Hawks remarked: "Pretty Bad. Duke is a much better actor than he is a director." (M.W.)
The Green Hornet
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Director Michel Gondry brings little life to the comic-book tale of a masked vigilante (Seth Rogen) and his sidekick (Jay Chou). The script, co-written by Rogen, has a misguided bromance vibe. (M.S.)
The Green Hornet 3D
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Green Mile
Released: 1999
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Green Room
Released: 1979
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Henry James' The Altar Of The Dead, adapted with an odd kind of brisk melancholy by Francois Truffaut. One of his strangest and most underrated later works. I much prefer it to say, The Last Metro.
The Green, Green Grass of Home
Released: 1983
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Greenhorns
Released: 2010
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Greening of Cuba
Released: 1996
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Grey
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A suicidal alpha male (Liam Neeson) and other survivors of an Alaskan plane crash battle bloodthirsty wolves. The film is a gripping, nuanced and intelligent study of the will to live. (M.B.)
The Grey Fox
Released: 1983
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An elderly stagecoach robber is released from prison in the Northwest in the early 1900s and tries, rather painfully, to adjust to new values, a new landscape, a new century. An understated film of almost shattering lyricism, with a great performance by Richard Farnsworth as the road agent. It's the best Western in years - so good, in fact, that it makes you wish they'd revive this almost dead genre.
The Groundstar Conspiracy
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Tense and sly sci-fi spy thriller; director Lamont Johnson's fans began to notice him with this picture and The McKenzie Break.
The Group, Part 1
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Mary McCarthy's acerbic look at a Vassar class, and how they fell out, in a slightly scattered adaptation. It has it moments.
The Grudge
Released: 2004
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Grudge 2
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A ludicrous script and terrible acting doom this sequel, in which a young woman (Amber Tamblyn) is exposed to the mysterious curse that afflicted her sister (Sarah Michelle Gellar). (M.S.)
The Guard
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A boozing, whoring, drug-taking cop (Brendan Gleeson) joins a straitlaced FBI agent (Don Cheadle) to bust a drug smuggling operation. This Irish action comedy is funny and rewarding. (K.B.)
The Guardian
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Kevin Costner shines as a renowned rescue swimmer (Kevin Costner) who mentors a troubled young man (Ashton Kutcher) in the Coast Guard. The film sometimes gets lost in depicting the ennobling power of selflessness, but it also manages to poke a few holes in the hero myth. (J.R.)
