MovieDescription
The Pledge

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Plot to Assassinate Hitler
Released: 1955
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Polar Express
Released: 2004
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
Robert Zemeckis and Tom Hanks bring motion and emotion to Chris Van Allsburg's story, making it an instant classic on the silver screen.
The Pool
Released: 2007
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
In Panjim, India, a hotel housekeeper (Venkatesh Chavan) is relentlessly drawn to a gleaming swimming pool, so he insinuates himself into the unhappy family it belongs to. Chris Smith (American Movie, The Yes Men) directs extraordinary performances in this subtle movie about good deeds done for ambiguous reasons. (K.B.)
The Poseidon Adventure
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Luxury liner strikes and iceberg, flips over on its top. Stunned survivors, mugging frantically, climb their way up to the ship's hull. Crafty, crass producer - Irwin Allen - makes mint and, along with unscrupulous colleagues, inflicts series of increasingly expensive and idiotic disaster movies on public. Moral: Some people can only reach the top by seraping the bottom.
The Possession
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A girl (Natasha Calis) becomes obsessed with an antique box containing a spirit that's eager to inhabit a human host. For a horror flick, this film's not terribly predictable -- especially when Hasidic rapper Matisyahu arrives to expel the demon. (M.S.)
The Postman
Released: 1998
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Postman Always Ring Twice
Released: 1980
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The better of the two American versions of James M. Cain's seedy little classic of infidelity, love and murder at a California roadstop; it has more sex and steam and sleaze, which is exactly what the story needs. But the ending is strangely botched, and at times it's all a little too reverent, as if the filmmakers believed Cain were actually Albert Camus. (The best adaptation of Postman remains Luchino Visconti's 1942 Ossessione.
The Postman Always Rings Twice
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
James Cain's corker about lust, lies, liquidation, and loss in a roadside cafe. Not bad, but I prefer the 1981 Rafelson-Nicholson version (forgetting its botched climax), not to mention Visconti's Ossessione.
The Power and the Glory
Released: 1933
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Powerpuff Girls Movie
Released: 2002
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The President Vanishes
Released: 1934
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The President's Analyst
Released: 1967
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Madly irreverent Second City style sendup of '60s paranoia, spy films, governmental secrecy, the CIA, the FBI et al. Offbeat, very funny.
The President's Plane is Missing
Released: 1971
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A weird plan to overthrow the U.S. and impending nuclear confrontation with China, both averted in predictably tightlipped fashion. Based on the Robert Serling novel.
The Prestige
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale turn in intense performances as rival magicians who obsessively battle one another in turn-of-the-century London. Director Christopher Nolan delights in the storyâ??s bizarre crosses and double-crosses, drenching the screen with passion. (M.S.)
The price and the Passion
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on C.S. Forester's "The Gun," another Stanley Kramer special - with Sinatra and Sophia Loren as fiery Spanish rebels and Cary Grant as a staid British officer, transporting a mammoth cannon through the battle lines. (Anyone who casts like that was bound to make a movie like It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World...)
The Pride of the Yankees
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Lou Gehrig, Iron Man of the old Bronx Bombers' "Murderer's Row" (back when the Yankees were the Yankees, instead of the millionaire chattels of a raving nit), in pleasant bio shot through with odd touches and recollections of Herman Mankiewicz's year-previous script, Citizen Kane. Teammate Babe Ruth plays himself; Mankiewicz has written him here as a jovial oaf.
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on Muriel Spark's portrait of a dotty, scottish schoolteacher who worships Giotto and Mussolini and is addicted to grand gestures and eccentric romanticism. The film itself is mundane - but perhaps that only serves to set off Maggie Smith's marvelously manic performance of the teacher all the better.
The Prince & Me
Released: 2004
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A Dairyland variant on Roman Holiday starring Julia Stiles
The Prince and the Pauper
Released: 1937
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Prince and The Showgirl
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Marilyn Monroe's oddest project: an adaptation of Terence Rattigan's The Sleeping Prince, directed by and co-starring Olivier. At times, a pleasant surprise.
The Prince Is Back
Released: 1999
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Prince of Egypt
Released: 1998
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Steve Martin and Martin Short are on hand as a pair of Egyptian priests/vaudeville performers...
The Prince of Thieves
Released: 1948
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A cut-rate Robin Hood and Maid Marian cavort in a sort of Sherwood Forest subdivision. A far cry from Flynn or Fairbanks. (M.W.)
The Princess and the Frog
Released: 2009
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
Disney sets the Grimm fairy tale in 1920s New Orleans and gives it a nearly all African American cast. It's the company's best traditionally animated outing in years. (M.S.)
The Princess and The Pirate
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Hope in his leering prime, with ? support from Brennan as a toothless, maniacally ? pirate. (M.W.)

Coincidence means all in The Princess and the Warrior
