MovieDescription
The Return of Frank James
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A sequel to Henry King's Jesse James, with Fonda, Carradine and Hull repeating their roles; handled in stark, paranoid style by Fritz Lang - who considered movie Westerns the "nibelungen" Saga of America.
The Return of October
Released: 1948
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Plucky lass becomes convinced that a race horse named October is the reincarnation of her dead uncle; her friends and relatives are perturbed. (Bob Hope gagmen Panama & Frank dreamed this one up.)(M.W.)
The Revenge of Frankenstein
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
You can't keep a good man down - courtesy of Hammer Films and their main man, Terence Fisher.
The Revenge of The Pink Panther
Released: 1978
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Peter Sellers imperturbably inept Inspector Clouseau, one of the screen's great comic characters, in another display of spastic deduction, ably abetted by the twitching , giggling, beside-himself Inspector Dreyfus, and that whippet-swift, choppy-socky majordomo, Cato. Of all the Clouseau, this is the one that works best as a pure thriller. The plot features heroin smuggling, the Mafia and a little tai kwon do; parts of it might come from a straight Siegel or Frankenheimer auctioneer. But the centerpiece, of course, is Clouseau himself - eternal romantic, bumbling Lecoq, who grandly and indifferently leaves a trail of explosions, disasters, gutted houses and howling victims behind him.
The Revengers
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Obsessed rancher enlists posse of maniacs to aid in his vendetta. Tepid Wild Bunch-Dirty Dozen rip-off (it might better be called The Tame Bunch) by a one-time specialist in serious drama. Daniel Mann (Come Back, Little Sheba, The Rose Tattoo). (M.W.)
The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
Released: 2003
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Revolutionary Optimists
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Amlan Ganguly empowers slum children to become agents of change. (TMS)
The Right Stuff
Released: 1984
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Phil Kaufman turns Tom Wolfe's reportorial saga of the Mercury astronauts (and the rough-riding test pilots who preceeded them, and were swallowed up in their glory) into an irreverent, swashbuckling, hip comic epic. The cinematography, by Caleb (The Black Stallion) Deschanel, is fantastically beautiful, and the whole movie has a roaring, tongue-in-cheek adolescent air; it's a find tweak at grandeur and heroism.
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Xanadu's poet laureate, struggles with inspiration and opium. A rare chance to see one of the BBC docu-dramas that launched enfant terrible Ken Russell; some Russell fans prefer these films to anything he made subsequently.
The Ring
Released: 2002
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Ring Two
Released: 2005
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Ringer

The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Stylish, unsentimental re-creation of the '30s gangster cycle, brilliantly photographed by Lucien Ballard.
The Rite
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Anthony Hopkins stars in the latest Exorcist knockoff about an exorcist plying his trade in Rome. It delivers sinister atmosphere but few shocks and no characters to root for. (M.B.)
The River of No Return
Released: 2003
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The River Wild
Released: 1994
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The River's Edge
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Very good low-budget chase melodrama; romantic triangle on a desperate run to Mexico.
The Road
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Director John Hillcoat does a solid job of adapting Cormac McCarthy's bleak novel about a father and son (Viggo Mortensen, Kodi Smit-McPhee) wandering through a blighted American wasteland beset by some unnamed catastrophe. Mortensen works minor miracles in what is essentially a one-note role. (M.S.)
The Road Home
Released: 1999
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
The Road to Dali
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A third pair of comical chums - more given to drollery, and less to freneticism or crosstalk - wreak a little nautical havoc on the way to Bali. (M.W.)
The Road to El Dorado
Released:
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The young crowd I saw it with seemed to be sporadically enjoying themselves.
The Road To Morocco
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Crooning con-man and his ski-nosed schmuck of a sidekick wander amiably through Arabia, pursued by gorgeous harem girls and homicidal maniacs. Perhaps the most typical of all the "Road" pictures: melodic, low-pressure, funny. (M.W.)
The Road to Rio
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Suave crooner and his be-schnoozed schlemiel of a sidekick battle villains and hypnotists South of the Border. The craziest of al the Roads, done with a "We'll try anything" brio.
The Road to Singapore
Released: 1940
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Road to Utopia
Released: 1945
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Crooning con-man and his ski-nosed stooge "put her there, pal" in the frozen North. The only "Road" movie where Hope gets the girl. (Or does he?) (M.W.)
The Road Warrior
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A post apocalyptic fable about pursuit, death and the all important quest for gasoline on the desert roads of a ravaged Australia. A hellishly exciting action movie; it all but blasts you right out of your seat. (M.W.)
The Roaring Twenties
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Three World War I foxhole buddies whose paths keep crossing and colliding during every excess of the hedonistic '20s. Tough, fast, relentless, bursting with vitality, this is the movie with Cagney great "dance of death" on the cathedral steps, a model Warners gangsters melodrama on every count.
The Robe
Released: 1953
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The old religioso fakeola based on Lloyd Douglas' fantasy about a Roman centurion who gets tangled up with Christ's robe. Notable primarily as the first film in Cinema scope, and for the hot times Burton and Simmons had off screen.
The Rocker
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An enthusiastic, hard-partying ex-drummer (Rainn Wilson) embarks on a second grab for the brass codpiece when his nephew's pseudo-emo outfit loses its own drummer. Wilson is buoyed by a sporadically witty script, and while there are no surprises whatsoever in the story, his goofy, puppylike charm renders what could have been a disaster merely an unfortunate event. (M.S.)
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Released: 1975
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
