The Heroes of Telemark

Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on another of Alistair Maclean's World War II "dangerous mission" melodramas and obviously an attempt to cash in on the formulas of The Guns Of Navarone. (Here, Allied commandoes are skiing their way to a snowbound Norwegian Nazi munitions factory.) Inflated and thin despite the presence of one of the American cinema's great action directors, Anthony Mann (who seems confounded by the logistics.)

The Hills Have Eyes II
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This sequel to last year's stylish remake of the '70s horror classic is witless and simple-minded, a murky body-count movie that pits the franchise's hateful mutants against a group of equally unlikable National Guard reservists. (M.B.)
The Hired Hand
Released: 1971
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The tensions, terrors, and sadness of "male-bonding." Some critics regard The Hired Hand as one of the great "lost" films of the early '70s - a nouvelle vague Western "closer to Robbe-Grillet then John Ford."

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Set in 1983 Sheffield, Nicholas Hytnerâ??s film follows eight boys on the verge of entering college â?? clever, wild, cocky boys who are entertaining from the moment they walk on screen. The film is a raunchy, raw and often hilarious look at the business of learning. (T.B.)

The Hoax
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Lasse Hallström’s movie about Clifford Irving (Richard Gere) has some wonderful moments, as Irving tries to sell an "autobiography" of Howard Hughes that he wrote without ever meeting the reclusive billionaire. But the movie adds a whole new layer to the story involving the Nixon administration, and what had already seemed farfetched suddenly has neither foot on the ground. (K.W.)

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? Yes
The best thing about finally reaching the third and last chapter of Peter Jackson’s ponderously epic eight-hour adaptation of the rather brief and chipper novel is that we may be assured that once the DVD hits next year, some intrepid fan is going to whittle the whole thing down into a breezy 105-minute phantom edit, like it should have been in the first place. (M.J.)
