MovieDescription
The Spiderwick Chronicles
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Siblings discover an alternate world after moving into a rundown estate. The film is full of entertaining CGI creations, but the full-throttle narrative never gives those creations -- or the human characters about whom we're supposed to care -- any time to breathe. (S.R.)

The Spiral Staircase
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Gothic mansion shrouded in the night and lashed by furious gusts, the elderly invalid, her mind a cavern of sinister secrets, asleep in the grand bedroom; the terrified mute servant girl moving through the shadowy corridors and the twisting staircases, hearing in every crackle, every scuring noise, a premonition of horror; and, somewhere in the night, a psychotic killer who strikes without warning, deadly, implacable, consumed with bloodlust, a killer whose targets are young women, who believes that the maimed, the halt and the "defective" should be done away with. Now, it is the darkest hour of the night; now the wind screams with a redoubled fury; now the candles gutter and blink, and what is that creaking slow footstep? There it is: closer and closer now, treading calmly and steadily up the spiral staircase..Robert Slodmak's famous melodrama, drenched in Teutonic atmosphere, is the paradigmatic lady-in-distress thriller. Try not to see it alone at night, particularity if the weather is bad...
The Spirit
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Frank Miller's big-screen adaptation of Will Eisner's comic-book crime fighter has plenty of spirit but no soul at all. A long, incoherent mess of a film. (M.S.)

The Spy Next Door
Released: 2010
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Jackie Chan plays a CIA spy forced to look after his girlfriend’s kids. It’s painful to see a comic and physical genius like Chan reduced to moth-eaten pratfalls. (M.S.)
The Spy Who Came In From the Cold
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
From John le Carre's first novel, a gray bitter, clear-eyed look at international espionage.
The Spy Who Loved Me
Released: 1978
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Sur-prisingly enough, this is the best of all the James Bond movies - despite the fact that stolid Roger Moore is no match for Sean Connery. Just what the series was always supposed to have been - full of spectacular action, location photography, glossy eroticism, and tongue-in-cheek humor - and, with a few exceptions, like "Goldfinger," frequently wasn't.
The Square
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This impressive Australian suspense movie involves a construction worker’s lust for a neighbor’s wife and a satchel full of ill-gotten cash. It’s a blazingly feel-bad slice of neo-noir played out with grueling attention to detail and tone. (M.S.)
The Squid and the Whale
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The St. Valentine's Day Massacre
Released: 1967
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A little Prohibition unpleasantness between Alphonse Capone and "Bugsy" Moran, done by Corman as a cross between early Warners and late "Untouchables."

The Stepford Wives
Released: 2004
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Frank Oz and Paul Rudnick have created a remake of the 1975 thriller that's more spoof than satire
The Sterile Cuckoo
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Sensitive, compassionate study of a college romance between two misfits. Liza Minnelli's performance as the free spirit "Pookie" - desperate, touching, and a bit out of her time - is one of her best.
The Sting

Now Playing? No
The Oscar-winning film about two Depression-era con artists (Robert Redford, Paul Newman) trying to avenge a murder and win a large sum of money from a corrupt mob boss (Robert Shaw).

The Stoning of Soraya M.
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Based on a true incident, this drama portrays the religiously sanctioned stoning of a Muslim woman. We are given entrée to the often hidden world behind the chador, but the melodrama is marred by a splatter-film ethos and simplistic storytelling. (M.B.)
The Store
Released: 1983
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Ace documentarian Frederick Wiseman (The titticut Follies, High School, Welfare) casts his dispassionate eye on Neiman-Marcus in Houston. Guaranteed not to please the Houston Chamber Of Commerce. (M.W.)

The Story of Adele H
Released: 1975
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Probably Francios Truffaut's greatest film - a quintessential portrayal of obsessive love, seen through the poignant, absurd, heartbreaking experiences of Adele Hugo, daughter of the great novelist, as she pursues an impossible dream of romance and freedom to the shores of the "New World." As Adele, Isabelle Adjani has a cold, gemlike intensity; the film itself is restrained, passionate, almost perfectly achieved.
The Story of Alexander Graham Bell
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Don Ameche invents the telephone. (M.W.)
