MovieDescription
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

The Role of Her Life
Released: 2004
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
In this 2004 French film, a mousy typist works for a movie star, and both fall for a handsome gardener.
The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas, 1978
Released: 1978
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Rolling Stones: Sweet Summer Sun: Hyde Park Live
Released: 2013
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The iconic English rock band make history with a two-hour concert at London’s Hyde Park, which Paul Dugdale captures on film.
The Romantic Englishwoman
Released: 1975
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The alienated intellectual who cedes his wife - almost out of clinical curiosity - to a younger lover, as he gathers material for a "novel". Very superior of its kind: brilliant, witty (the scenario is by playwright Tom Stoppard), beautifully acted and burnished to a high gloss by Joseph Losey.(M.W.)
The Rookie
Released: 2002
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
The Room
Released: 2003
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The story of a banker and his fiancee. But plot description is meaningless in this case; with The Room director-writer Tommy Wiseau has created either one of the worst or best films of all time. You be the judge.
The Roommate
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Minka Kelly is harassed by crazy college roommate Leighton Meester in this unoriginal creeper. It takes the offensively old-fashioned approach of depicting a psychokiller as a frustrated homosexual. (M.B.)
The Rose Garden
Released: 1989
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Rover
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Reviewed this issue.
The Royal Hunt of the Sun
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Peter Shaffer's stirring play about a sort of deadly nomoerotic duel of wills between Pizarro and Atahualpa during the exploration of Peru. Plummers Atahualpa (he originated the other lead, Pizarro, on Broadway) is said to be flabbergasting.
The Royal Tenenbaums
Released: 2001
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The family that fails together, ails together
The Rugrats Movie
Released:
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
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.)
