  • Manhattan Murder Mystery (PG)

    Woody Allen's welcome return (1993) to straight-ahead entertainment, after 15 years of slogging through art-house hand-me-downs, happily coincided with a return to Diane Keaton as his leading lady, and she deftly steals the show. more...

  • Meek's Cutoff (PG)

    Imagine a collaboration between John Ford and Wallace Stevens and you might get a sense of what Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy) pulls off here: a sincere re-creation of the pioneer experience, brought to life through careful, often unexpected detail. more...
  • Moana
  • Moana (PG)

    For this feature-length animation, veteran Disney directors John Musker and Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules) stick to bankable formula: a plucky, beautiful girl named Moana (and given voice by Auli'i Cravalho) longs to venture outside her Polynesian village despite her father's opposition ("I wish I could be the perfect daughter / But I'm drawn to the water," she sings, recalling many a Disney heroine before her). more...
  • Moana 3D (PG)

    For this feature-length animation, veteran Disney directors John Musker and Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules) stick to bankable formula: a plucky, beautiful girl named Moana (and given voice by Auli'i Cravalho) longs to venture outside her Polynesian village despite her father's opposition ("I wish I could be the perfect daughter / But I'm drawn to the water," she sings, recalling many a Disney heroine before her). more...

  • Monster House (PG)

    Leave it to the nakedly cunning executive producers Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis to fashion a digitally animated scare show for kids predicated on what may be the most blatant evocation of vagina dentata in movie history: a spiteful, devouring haunted house driven by the angry spirit of a circus fat lady. more...
  • More Than a Game (PG)

    NBA star LeBron James figures large in this exciting and insightful documentary about the phenomenal rise of the basketball team at St. Vincent-St.Mary high school in Akron, Ohio. more...
  • Mr. Holmes
  • Mr. Holmes (PG)

    Like The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1976) and The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970), this adaptation of Mitch Cullin's novel A Slight Trick of the Mind purports to show the real man behind the legendary sleuth, and as in those movies, the scenes focused on character are more striking than the obligatory detective tale. more...
  • My Neighbors the Yamadas (PG)

    Studio Ghibli—the Japanese outfit that produced Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle—favors traditional anime style, but this goofy 1999 comedy, its first digital project, features cartoonish characters and minimal, pastel-shaded backgrounds. more...
