MovieDescription
The Warped Ones
Released: 1960
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A delinquent wreaks revenge on a reporter; part of the UW Cinematheque’s series on 1950s-60s Japanese films with a strong Western influence.
The Warrior's Way
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
An overwrought pseudo-epic about an assassin (Jang Dong-gun) forced into exile in the old American West when he refuses to kill his rival clan's only surviving member. It’s a not-quite-successful but visually entertaining attempt to merge the tropes of the classic Western with those of the sword-wielding chopsocky genre. (M.S.)
The Warriors
Released: 1979
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
New York street gangs run amok in Walter Hill's intense 1979 film.
The Wash
Released: 2001
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Watch
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Ben Stiller leads a neighborhood watch group in this above-average aliens vs. average Joes comedy. Costars Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade ladle on enough goofiness to make their characters genuinely funny. (M.S.)
The Watcher
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep
Released: 2007
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this ripping yarn, a young Scottish dreamer (Alex Etel) finds an egg that hatches into the Loch Ness Monster. It’s a family film in the best sense, with excellent CGI effects and an expressive performance by Etel. (M.S.)
The Waterboy
Released:
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Way
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An optometrist (Martin Sheen) travels to Europe to claim the ashes of his estranged son, who died in a freak accident during a religious pilgrimage. The film never arrives anywhere you couldn't see coming a mile away, but it does so with such empathy that it feels comforting rather than overly predictable. (K.J.)
The Way
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An American father travels to France to get the body of his estranged son. (TMS)
The Way Back
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In 1940, prisoners (Jim Sturgess, Colin Farrell, Ed Harris) break out of a Siberian gulag and travel 4,000 miles on foot through Siberia, Mongolia and Tibet. The dramatic elements of the movie don't always feel true, but director Peter Weir fills the screen with overpowering landscapes and spectacular desolation. (M.W.)
The Way Home
Released: 2002
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Way of the Gun
Released:
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Way to Bresson
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Way Way Back
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
After his mother's lover (Steve Carell) belittles him, a boy (Liam James) befriends a water-park employee (Sam Rockwell) who helps him emerge from his shell. Carell's role is thankless and one-dimensional, but Toni Collette is wonderful as his girlfriend, conveying how loneliness and fear can create blind us to the truth. (S.D.)
The Way We Were
Released: 1973
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The opening and closing of this bittersweet Rich Blond Wasp-Jewish Socialist romance are quite touching, but in-between writer Arthur Laurents keeps losing his grip. Example: Streisand's Katie, as an identifiable collegiate communist, would not have been crusading as a Eleanor Roosevelt liberal for the "rights of the accused" in the HUAC years. She would have been blacklisted herself. Despite such lapses, an effective soaper.
The Weather Man
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Nicolas Cage is a Chicago weather man caught up in a life-long funk
The Weather Underground
Released: 2002
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A documentary that tries to explain why a group of middle-class white kids would want to blow up the U.S. Capitol
The Web
Released: 1948
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Tight, noir-ish thriller whose central character - like Graham Greene's Raven - is a killer who finds himself a patsy.
The Wedding Date
Released: 2005
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This Debra Messing vehicle bears more than a passing resemblance to Pretty Woman
The Wedding Planner
Released: 2001
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Think My Best Friend's Wedding Planner. Or don't think at all, which will probably help the movie go down smoothly.
The Wedding Singer
Released: 1998
Rated:
Now Playing? No
If the bride and groom haven't killed each other by the time he's done singing, they know they have a future.
The Weeping Woman of the River
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Wendell Baker Story
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Luke Wilson wrote, co-directed and stars in the story of a lovable con man who rallies a band of mistreated elderly residents at a retirement hotel. The film begins with life and energy but takes a turn for the soporific when Wendell turns into a dully decent hero. (J.R.)
The Westerner
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A beautifully shot and ultimately poignant range-war Western. This is perhaps the quintessential "Coop" movie - even though Walter Brennan steals every scene as venal, crusty old Judge Roy Dean ? West of the Pecos. (M.W.)
The Whip
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Whistleblower
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Working as a peacekeeper in war-ravaged Bosnia, an American cop (Rachel Weisz) uncovers a horrifying sex-trafficking ring. The premise, based on a true story, is searing, but the film relies too heavily on cliches of lurid television procedurals. (K.B.)
The White Countess
Released: 2005
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Merchant-Ivory signs off with the disappointment
The White Hell of Piz Palu
Released: 1929
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The White Ribbon
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A series of disturbing events befall a German village in the 1910s, and the children are acting strangely. There's a genuinely creepy moment or two, but Michael Haneke's mannered film is a bit of a snooze. (K.B.)
