Rated:
Now Playing? No
Giant ants run amok in the L.A. sewer system; one of the classic '50s monster movies.
Then She Found Me
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Helen Hunt directed and stars in this sloppy-as-life comedic drama about a 39-year-old suddenly single woman whose birth mother (Bette Midler) comes storming back into her life just as she’s trying to conceive a child of her own. Colin Firth, as a shell-shocked veteran of his own ill-fated marriage, gives the movie a lift. (K.W.)
There and Back

There Lived a Lad

There Will Be Blood
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s period epic about a man (Daniel Day-Lewis) who won’t stop until he’s drained every drop of oil from the California desert strains so hard to be a masterpiece that it forgets to entertain us along the way. Representing entrepreneurial madness, Day-Lewis brings his usual intensity to a character that remains too much a cipher, and Paul Dano more than holds his own as a boy-preacher who represents the other force – religion – that shaped this great country of ours. (K.W.)
There's Always Tomorrow
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Soap-meister Sirk turns his gleaming eye on a typical bourgeois triangle. For this kind of stuff, you can't do better.
There's No Business Like Show Business
Released: 1954
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
There's Something About Mary
Released: 1998
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Basically, it's your standard boy-gets-girl, boy-almost-loses-penis, boy-gets-girl romantic-comedy plot.
Therese: The Story of Saint Therese of Lisieux
Released: 2004
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
These are the Damned
Released: 1963
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Weymouth, an eerie town on the British seacoast. An American tourist, a "twist" a gang of vicious teddy-boys, a fanatical scientist, the weird sculpture of a bird-man clutching at the sky, and, deep within the bowels of the ocean-whipped caverns, a group of radioactive children, whose touch means death...Joseph Losey - who, like Nick Ray, hails from LaCrosse - in a typically dense, complex and tortured foray into science fiction. (M.W.)
These Three
Released: 1936
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour, with the lesbian theme muffled almost beyond recognition, Still, an effective, well acted but slightly opaque melodrama about a psychopathic liar who wreaks havoc at a girls' boarding school.
They
Released: 2002
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
They Came for Good
Released: 2003
Rated:
Now Playing? No
They Drive by Night
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Truckers, crooks, psychopaths and "headlights" - vintage hard-boiled Warner Brothers melodrama at its toughest and grittiest. (M.W.)
They Live
Released: 1988
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
John Carpenter directs pro wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper in a tale of aliens masquerading as the upper-class. For B-movie fans, it more than lives up to the concept.
They Live By Night
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Bowie is a naive young prison escapee, Keechie the daughter of one of his partners in crime. Bowie nourishes the absurd hope that his stick up jobs will net him enough to hire a lawyer and clear his name; Keechie dreams that the two of them will one day enter the world of "normal people" - take walks in the sunlight, hold hands in the movies. They are, this devastatingly beautiful film informs us before the credits, " a boy and girl who were never introduced to the world we live in," who inhabit a world of thieves, killers, informants, whores and shadowy go- betweens. Nicholas Ray's brilliant first film, based on Edward Anderson's classic crime novel Thieves Like Us (remade in 1974 by Robert Altman).
They Made Me A Criminal
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
"Killer" on the run tangles with tough kids, sexy dame, determined cop. A pretty strange (non-musical) assignment for daffy choreographic genius Busby Berkeley. (M.W.)
They Saved Hitler's Brain
Released: 1964
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Mad scientists and mind-boggling evil. For devotees of appalling garbage.
They Shoot Horses, Don't They
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Horace McCoy's crisp, brutal novel of degradation, despair and death at a '30s dance marathon; a minor classic of hard-boiled "pulp" existentialism. Sydney Pollack's movie is more lush; you tend to luxuriate in the poetic sleaze of the oceanside dance-hall and its doomed contestants. Michael Sarrazin is an unfortunate choice for Robert Stevenson, looking too dreamy and weak. But beyond that the film is a power-house. As Gloria - tense, embittered, suicidal - Jane Fonda gives what is still her greatest performance.
They Were Expendable
Released: 1945
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Perhaps the quintessential John Ford war film. Made on the eve of American's victory., it dwells obsessively and poetically on defeat, detailing calamitous series of setbacks on the Pacific front. Asked by Peter Bogdanovich why he was so preoccupied with defeat, Ford mused: "Hmmm...Any war I was in - we always won. But I like that - I despise those happy endings - with a kiss at the finish; I've never done that. Of course they were glorious in defeat in the Philippines. They kept on fighting...

Released: 2010

Things to Come
Released: 1936
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Apocalypse and utopia in a rapid telescoping of Britain's next few centuries. Based -with Wells' assistance - on H.G. Wells' Shape of Things To Come. The philosophy creaks (or squeaks), but this movie. lavishly produced the Kordas, is a set designer's and art directors dream.
Things We Lost in the Fire
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In Susanne Bier’s impeccably constructed drama, a recent widow (Halle Berry) invites her husband’s junkie friend (Benicio Del Toro) to live with her family. Del Toro offers the most intricately mapped depiction of addiction and strained humanity ever put on screen. (J.R.)
Think Like a Man
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This romantic-comedy adaptation of Steve Harvey’s relationship-advice book features characters who exemplify a personality type or romantic problem. That results in stick figures, but the terrific cast imbues each one with a certain degree of humanity and spunk. (M.B.)
Think Like a Man Too
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A romantic weekend gets derailed when characters from 2012's Think Like a Man (Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, Regina Hall) gather in Las Vegas for a wedding. Director Tim Story cranks up the tone to match both the neon pageantry of the Vegas Strip and the loud-mouthed fervor of Hart, who litters the film with enjoyable pop-culture references and sports metaphors. (W.G.)
