  • Unbroken (PG-13)

    Angelina Jolie directed this World War II movie from a script by Joel and Ethan Coen, but none of them leaves any sort of signature on the result, a straightforward and entirely commendable story about the triumph of the human spirit, etc. Based on the best-selling nonfiction book by Laura Hillebrand, it tells the story of Italian-American athlete Louis Zamperini, who competed in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin and later served in the U.S. Air Force as a bombardier against the Japanese. more...
  • Upside Down (PG-13)

    Juan Solanas's digital fantasy takes place on twinned planets whose "double gravity" holds them in such close proximity that people can climb from one to the other; these opposite worlds are divided between the upper and lower classes, which occasions a drippy Romeo and Juliet romance between a disadvantaged Jim Sturgess and a privileged Kirsten Dunst. more...
  • Unfinished Song (PG-13)

    Stephen Walker's saccharine documentary Young@Heart (2007), about a senior citizens' chorus camping it up with 80s rock tunes, was bad enough, but now it's inspired this sappy drama with Vanessa Redgrave and Terence Stamp as an old married couple. more...
  • Unknown (PG-13)

    Screenwriters Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell take a provocative premise—an American scientist in Berlin loses his passport and his identity, after which even his wife claims not to know him—and spin it into dunderheaded improbability. more...
  • Unstoppable (PG-13)

    After human error sends a 39-car freight train, unmanned and loaded with toxic chemicals, racing through southern Pennsylvania, a couple of working stiffs—longtime train engineer Denzel Washington and new political hire Chris Pine—valiantly set off in hot pursuit. more...
  • The Uninvited (PG-13)

    An archetypal 40s ghost story, ambitiously decked out in high studio finery, with billowing curtains and other kinds of hyperromantic kitsch that can put you in mind of death by tuberculosis, though ultimately it's a bit of a letdown (1944). more...
  • U.N. Me (PG-13)

    This documentary (2009) investigates alleged controversies committed by the United Nations. more...
  • UHF (PG-13)

    Music video parodist "Weird Al" Yankovic stars in this satirical 1989 farce about a bumpkin who takes over a run-down TV station; after he enlists a retarded janitor (Michael Richards) to take over the kiddie show, the station's ratings soar, but the owner of a competing station (Kevin McCarthy) tries to put him out of business. more...

  • The Unknown Known (PG-13)

    Errol Morris must have thought this feature-length interview with former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, architect of the Iraq debacle, would generate the same haunting drama as did The Fog of War (2003), his Oscar-winning portrait of Vietnam-era defense secretary Robert MacNamara. more...
