(B) Revolutionary Road

It may be, as Thoreau said, that "most men lead lives of quiet desperation," but in the movies, desperation is much more likely to be loud. "Revolutionary Road" is another movie about unhappiness,...

(B-) Righteous Kill

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult
Has there ever been a cinematic pairing as eagerly anticipated as this one? Perhaps, but I can't think of one that has been anticipated as long. Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro were both in 1974's "T...

(B) The Rum Diary

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
22-year-old Hunter S. Thompson wrote a novel about men in their 30's working for a Puerto Rican newspaper, equally soaked in the title libation and the brinier flavors of cynicism and failure, but ...

(B-) The Runaways

Genre: Musical
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
