MovieDescription
The Switch
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In a mixup, Jennifer Aniston is artificially inseminated by best friend Jason Bateman. It’s an amiable romantic comedy with charming performances – not great, but a reliable date movie. (M.S.)
The Sword
Released: 1964
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Sword and The Sorcerer
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Inarticulate, mostly undressed barbarians slaver, slash, snarl and seduce each other. (Is this a medieval auctioneer or an allegory of contemporary Hollywood?) (M.W.)
The Tailor of Panama
Released: 2001
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Take
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Deep in the slums of Los Angeles, good-natured Felix De La Pena (John Leguizamo), a family man and armored vehicle driver, is shot in the head during a hijacking attempt gone wrong. Though his wife, Marina (Rosie Perez), offers her love and support, Felix suffers from intense physical and emotional pain following the attack. As he begins to recover, he learns he has been framed for the stick-up; distraught, Felix decides to find the real culprit himself, despite his failing health and memory. (TMS)
The Taking of Pelham 123
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Denzel Washington stars as a New York Transit Authority employee trying to foil a terrorist (John Travolta) who’s hijacked a subway train. Washington can’t sell the character’s ordinariness, and director Tony Scott’s visual shenanigans grow tiresome. (S.R.)
The Tale of Despereaux
Released: 2008
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
The animation looks decent enough, but the narrative is a choppy story that bobs among human characters and the rodent residents of Mouseworld and Ratworld. The lesson here is that an overabundance of vocal talent (Matthew Broderick, Dustin Hoffman, Sigourney Weaver) does not a good cartoon make. (M.B.)
The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
Released: 2013
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Studio Ghibli animated drama about a princess found inside a stalk of bamboo.
The Tale of Zatoichi
Released: 1962
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Zatoichi (Shintaro Katsu) is a blind samurai who becomes the masseur for a Yakuza boss, who hires him anticipating a battle with a rival gang. Zatoichi has few equals on the battlefield or in the gambling den. But the rival gang hires Miki Hirate (Shigeru Amachi), an equally skilled swordsman for whom Zatoichi has great respect. When the gang war begins, Zatoichi is reluctant to battle his counterpart. But Hirate, who has discovered he is terminally ill, craves one final showdown. (TMS)
The Talented Mr. Ripley
Released: 1999
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Tall Blond Man With One Black Shoe
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Light, ebullient, ingenious little farce that works a number of sprightly variations on the classic Hitchcock theme of the wrong man. Here, a slightly fey musician mistaken for a James Bond type by hordes of competing intelligence agents. And for these agents, the word "intelligence" is the grossest flattery. (M.W.)
The Tall T
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Tamarind Seed
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Love and espionage, danger and slap-stick - Edwards second attempt to make this odd mixture work. (The first, and better was Darling Lil). (M.W.)
The Tangerine Dream
Released: 2005
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Tango Lesson
Released: 1998
Rated:
Now Playing? No
I cannot dance. I can do nothing.
The Tao of Steve
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This movie suggests that the way to get laid is to get laid-back.
The Tarnished Angels
Released: 1958
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A voyeuristic New Orleans reporter (Rock Hudson) mingles with a rootless, amoral troupe of barnstorming pilots in this film based on William Faulkner's Pylon.
The Tattered Dress
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The director of Tarantula and Revenge of the Creature tries his hand at adultery and murder, in no special order. (M.W.)
The Ten
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This often-hilarious collection of short films combines movie/TV-show spoofs with Beckettian absurdity in a satire of the Ten Commandments. The comedy may be too rarefied for some people’s taste, but when a joke connects, it’s like taking a lung-choking hit of laughing gas. (K.W.)
The Ten Commandments
Released: 1956
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This is DeMille at his most enjoyable. Affecting a mien of impressive dignity, he comes on before the movie begins to inform us all of his dedication to the Bible and the integrity of his efforts. What follows, of course, is another outlandish, overblown, half-crazy spectacle - this time the life story of no less than Moses - full, as usual, of equal parts of adolescent prurience, historical inaccuracy, high-priced showmanship, and a Rover Boys instinct for adventure and plot twists. What can you say about DeMille? That he made millions by taking the Lord's name in vain? One of the funnier side-effects of movies like The Ten Commandments and Samson and Delilah is the regularity with which they received plaudits and awards from religious leaders - as if the church people involved had never bothered to open their own Bibles.
The Ten Commandments
Released: 2007
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Ben Kingsley narrates an animated version of the Moses story.
The Tender Enemy
Released: 1936

Max Ophüls' 1936 ghost story.
The Tenth District Court: Moments of Trial
Released: 2004
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Tenth Victim
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Ritualized murder games in a chilling future dystopia; based on Robert Sheckley's classic "The Seventh Victim" (the tenth victim gets you into the "ten," - the dystopia's elite), and gussied up in '60s "psychedelic" style.
The Terminal
Released: 2004
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Tom Hanks is a man without a country in this Steven Spielberg film
The Terminal Man
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Computer thriller from the novel by Michael Crichton; Mike Hodges (get Carter, Flash Gordon) puts some stylish touches in the direction. (M.W.)
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
