MovieDescription
The Terror
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A classic little cheapie horror thriller that was shot in less than three days on the sets left over from The Raven. The Terror was signed by Roger Corman, but actually most of it was directed by Monte Hellman, with an assist from Francis Coppola. (M.W.)
The Terror of Tiny Town
Released: 1938
Rated:
Now Playing? No
One of the legendary stinkers - unfortunately, much of the time it's too bad even to be amusing. The amazing premise, however, almost carries it: a musical Western, enacted by an all midget cast (who ride Shetland ponies and walk under the swinging saloon doors).
The Terrorizers
Released: 1998
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
With its desolate locations and dislocations, The Terrorizers suggests a country consisting only of spiritual exiles.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Released: 1974
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Beginning: Teens are trapped in a secluded house with a young killer-in-training. The prequel is neither as bad as it could have been nor as interesting as it should have been. (M.S.)
The Thief
Released: 1998
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Thief of Baghdad
Released: 1924
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The senior Fairbanks' best movie: opulent, breezy, tongue-in-cheek, action packed Arabian Nights fantasy that, in some respects has never been surpassed. A rich, unabashed entertainment.
The Thin Blue Line
Released: 1988
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This extraordinary documentary tells the story of a Texas drifter who was convicted of a murder he probably didn't commit. Director Errol Morris re-creates the crime from different angles and peppers the film with details from the investigation, creating a tragicomic world where truth and logic seem irrelevant when they don't serve the system's need for a victim. (P.G.)
The Thin Man
Released: 1934
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
In this revival of their initial 1937 outing, Nick (William Powell) and Nora (Myrna Loy) Charles solve a mystery while exchanging banter and downing cocktails.
The Thin Man Goes Home
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Nick, Nora and Asta pay filial duties. (M.W.)
The Thin Red Line
Released: 1999
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Based on James Jones' 1962 novel about a World War II rifle company's attempt to secure a single hill on the strategic island of Guadalcanal.
The Thing
Released: 1951
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Thing
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this prequel to the 1982 film, a paleontologist (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) discovers an alien on a ship in the Antarctic. The subtext of mass paranoia gets little attention here, in favor of enjoyable creature-feature scares. (S.R.)
The Thing
Released: 1982
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Scientists in the Antarctic are confronted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of the people that it kills. Directed by John Carpenter, starring Kurt Russell and Wilford Brimley.
The Thing With Two Heads
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Bigoted mad scientist grafts his head onto the shoulder of a black convict; the two heads proceed to bicker endlessly. This is said to be so bad that it becomes perversely amusing. (M.W.)
The Third Man
Released: 1949
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Through the tortuous, shadowy streets of postwar Vienna - streets dripping with decadence, plagued by murder and peopled with a rogues' gallery of haunting faces - an American pulp novelist pursues the murderers of his vanished friend, Harry Lime. Scripted by Graham Greene (it's the finest of his occasional writing for the screen) and directed with tense, multi-angled bravura by Carol Reed, this is one of the great movie thrillers. It chills your waking hours, and (for those brief, unforgettable moments with Orson Welles as Lime) haunts your dreams as well.
The Third Man
Released: 1949
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Set in postwar Vienna, Austria, (TMS)
The Third Miracle
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Thirteenth Floor

Now Playing? No
The Thomas Crown Affair
Released: 1999
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Tommy Lee Jones' directorial debut is a contemporary Western straddling the Rio Grande
The Three Faces of Eve
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Troubled housewife, married to a nerd, proves to be a triple schizophrenic. Based on fact; and basically a showcase for Joanne Woodward's tour-de-force as Eve White (Black, et. al.) -- a sort of Freudian- Stanislavskian ventriloquist act.
The Three Musketeers
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
By far the best of the many adaptation of Alexander Dumas' nonpareil swashbuckler...Excellently cast, gorgeously appointed, and directed with delicious, insouciant, offhand humor by Richard Lester. Lester and the producers, however, split the movie into two segments - somewhat infuriating the cast, who believed they had been contracted for only one film - and this segment stops halfway through the narrative, after D'Artzgnan's successful delivery of the Queen's studs. The story then continues in the "sequel," "The four Musketeers"...and, properly, the two should be shown together. But any true admirer of Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and their eternal camaraderie and insolence won't feel cheated.
The Three Musketeers
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This violent, witless adaptation features Ray Stevenson, Matthew McFadyen and Luke Evans as swordsmen fighting a double agent. The film has a few charms, including a standout rooftop swordfight. (K.J.)
The Three Musketeers 3D
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) leaves his home in rural France to fulfill his ambition of becoming one of the king's elite guardsmen, the Musketeers. In Paris he meets Athos (Matthew MacFadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson) and Aramis (Luke Evans) -- three of the king's finest swordsmen, who have been laid low by Milady De Winter's (Milla Jovovich) betrayal. D'Artagnan rallies his new friends to foil Cardinal Richelieu's (Christoph Waltz) plot to overthrow the monarchy and crown himself king of France. (TMS)
The Three Stooges
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Farrelly Brothers' labor of love transplants the 1930s-40s comedy team (uncannily re-created by Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos) to modern times, where they wreak glorious havoc en route to saving an orphanage. The Farrellys display profound insight into the Stooges' shame-based misfit humor, bringing out the trace of sweetness submerged in the sadism. (D.R.)
The Threepenny opera
Released: 1931
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Mesmerizing, beautifully atmospheric rendering of the most sensationally popular German play of its day. Brecht and Weill's acidulous updating of John Gay's The Beggar's Opera. It was a touch too atmospheric for Brecht; he successfully sued the producers for altering and prettying up his work. But in retrospect it remains the best adaptation of Threepenny on film, a milestone of the pre-Hitler era.
The Thrill Of It All
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
TV commercials satirized in between romantic tiffs. (M.W.)
The Tigger Movie
Released:
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
The Tillman Story
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This documentary makes effective use of commentary by survivors of Pat Tillman, who gave up an NFL career to join the Army and die in Afghanistan. That Tillman was felled by friendly fire, and the military covered up all traces, is a colossal betrayal of trust, if not a criminal act. (M.B.)
