MovieDescription
The Ruins
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Friends in Mexico turn up something evil atop an ancient Mayan pyramid. The film relies on grisly imagery and a quartet of protagonists you barely care about. (M.S.)
The Rules of Attraction
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Rules of the Game
Released: 1939
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Jean Renoir's 1939 masterpiece, in which various classes of French society mingle at a hunting chateau, is released in a new digital transfer.
The Rum Diary
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this Hunter S. Thompson adaptation, a young writer (Johnny Depp) accepts a newspaper job in Puerto Rico, then undergoes a moral awakening. It's messy, quirky, funny and angry, with plenty of off-beat charm. (S.R.)
The Runaway Bus
Released: 1954
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The mad misfortunes of a runaway bus in the London fog - an idea Luis Bunuel did much better in 1953's Illusion Travels By Streetcar.
The Runaways
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this decadent, true-rock cautionary tale, Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) form the Runaways, the 1970s all-girl group that flopped commercially but proved influential. Stewart and Fanning are remarkable, but the film's tone is disappointingly erratic. (K.B.)
The Rundown
Released: 2003
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Running Man
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Insurance swindles and picaresque pursuits in Spain by the master of the skewed angle. Carol(The Third Man) Reed. (M.W.)
The Russian Dolls
Released: 2005
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Russians are Coming, the Russians Are Coming.
Released: 1966
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Hapless Russkies run aground off New England coast, causing yucks galore as citizenry panics. Good "cold war" comedy, but not a patch on Dr. Strangelove. (M.W.)
The Sad Sack
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
George Baker's comic strip about a mournful, incompetent GI, is not especially good material for Jerry Lewis (he's too naturally manic); this post-Dean Martin venture sags and sinks despite direction by the late, great George M.
The Saddest Music in the World
Released: 2003
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea
Released: 1976
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Yukio Mishima's perverse, haunting novel about a destructive band of adolescents. The film's chokingly powerful eroticism, however, is always cut for television.
The Salt of Life
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An aging man (director and co-writer Gianni Di Gregorio) is traumatized when he recognizes that he is no longer viewed as a sexual object by women. This Italian import definitely hits on truths infrequently addressed in the movies, but it barely scratches its subject's surface. (M.B.)
The Salton Sea
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Sandlot
Released: 1993
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Santa Clause 2
Released: 2002
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause
Released: 2006
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
In this soulless monstrosity, Santa (Tim Allen) tries to stop Jack Frost (Martin Short) from taking over Christmas. Itâ??s stilted, manipulative and no fun whatsoever. (M.S.)
The Sapphires
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A would-be music promoter (Chris O'Dowd) sees something special in a girl group of four Australian singers and takes them to Vietnam to perform for American troops. (TMS)
The Savage Innocents
Released: 1959
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Brilliant evocation of Eskimo life, as an intransigent hunter (probably "The Mighty Quinn" of Dylan's song) defies the pitfalls and brutalities of civilization. Uncondescending, unusual - a mixture of documentary frankness, spectacular Alaskan locations, and lyrical drama, a symphony of ice and fire. The last great film of Nicholas Ray, and as unrecognized as most of his others.
The Savage Innocents
Released: 1960
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Savages
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney play a brother and sister who have to escort their resentful father (Philip Bosco) through the dying process in Tamara Jenkins’ admirably cold, hard look at the ties that bind. The movie’s billing itself as a comedy, but don’t expect Little Miss Sunshine-style uplift. (K.W.)
The Saw Trilogy
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Scalphunters
Released: 1968
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Bright, clever picaresque western about scabrous fur traders, pursued by two determined trappers. Consistently amusing - and with another of Sidney Pollack's "circular" plots and climaxes.
The Scarlet Empress
Released: 1934
Rated:
Now Playing? No
German noblewoman Sophia Frederica (Marlene Dietrich), who would later become Catherine the Great, travels to Moscow to marry the dimwitted Grand Duke Peter (Sam Jaffe), heir to the Russian throne. Their arranged marriage proves to be loveless, and Catherine takes many lovers, including the handsome Count Alexei (John Lodge), and bears a son. When the unstable Peter eventually ascends to the throne, Catherine plots to oust him from power.
The Scarlet Letter
Released: 1926
Rated:
Now Playing? No
One of Gish's best non-Griffith silents - a powerful adaptation of the Hawthorne classic of adultery, guilt and redemption filmed by the great Swedish director Victor Sjostrom (who also directed Gish in the even more masterful The Wind).
The Scarlet Pimpernel
Released: 1934
Rated:
Now Playing? No
"They seek him here they seek him there/The Frenchies seek him everywhere/Is he in Heaven, or in Hell?/That damned, elusive Pimpernel..." Leslie Howard's immortal portrayal via the Baroness Orczy novel) of Sir Percy, the cop, who masquerades as a sort of proto-Zorro, the aristocrat's savior and scourge of the French Terror.
The School of Rock
Released: 2003
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Science of Sleep
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A lonely everyman (Gael García Bernal) falls for his new neighbor (Charlotte Gainsbourg), and we experience his obsession in delightfully silly dream sequences. The film is a mess, but an endearing, beautiful, hopelessly honest mess supported by a brilliant pair of performances. (M.S.)
