MovieDescription
First Blood
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A Vietnam vet is picked up for vagrancy in a small Northwestern city whose police chief is a shade too touchy, a shade too conservative, a shade too troubled by the vet's long hair. Pushed too far, the vet explodes, and we quickly see that it is the town and the chief, not the vagrant, who are in trouble. Simpleminded, straight-ahead melodrama with lots of sock.
First Daughter

First Descent

Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A multigenerational, hardcore-soundtracked trip down craggy Alsakan peaks via snowboard
First Love

One of Max Schell's occasional lush directorial efforts, based on the Turgenev novella.
First Name: Carmen
Released: 1984
Rated:
Now Playing? No
With typically eccentric master, Jean-Luc Godard retells the sordid, romantic saga of Prosper Merimee's quintessential harlot, Carmen--updating the action and casting himself as Carmen's uncle, a seedy, failed movie director whom we first meet in an asylum. The music is not Bizet, but a Beethoven quartet, whose monumental power counterpoints the downward pull of love on the run. Great stuff; Godard has not diminished an inch in creativity or iconoclasm.
First on the Moon
Released: 2005
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A Russian mockumentary about cosmonauts who beat the U.S. to the moon.
First Snow
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this deft psychological thriller, Guy Pearce plays a traveling salesman whoâ??s told by a fortune teller that he wonâ??t live past the first snow of winter, then tries to adjust both his life and his fate. Director Mark Fergus keeps us guessing whether the prediction is a scam or not, and he gets a lot of mileage out of the wide-open spaces of the New Mexico desert. (K.W.)
First Sunday
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Bumbling criminals (Ice Cube, Tracy Morgan) try to rob a church in this bland message comedy. (M.S.)
Fish Tank
Released: 2009
Rated: NR

Reviewed this issue.
Five Came Back
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The plane that crashes in a trackless jungle; the madly colorful cross-section of passengers; the desperate attempts to repair the plane before a cannibal onslaught, and final choice--who will live and who will die? Brilliant novelist Nathaniel West (Miss Lonelyhearts) made his living as an unabashed hack screenwriter; this is the best remembered of his many scenarios. (M.W.)
Five Days in March

Rated: NR

Five Days One Summer
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A grim little anecdote, amplified from a Kay Boyle short story, about an incestuous upper class British couple (uncle and niece) and their mountain-climbing holiday in Germany. The climbing scenes themselves are incredible; the story has a sad, elliptic tension. It passed unnoticed, but this is one of Fred Zinnemann's best films - as good as High Noon or Day Of The Jackal, better than Julia or A Man For All Seasons.
Five Days, Five Nights
Released: 1996
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Five Easy Pieces
Released: 1970
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Jack Nicholson in one of the great performances of the early '70s; Bobby "Eroica" Dupea, piano prodigy, the scion of a musical family who has fled to a world of oil-riggers, Tammy Wynette songs, bowling alleys and finally the distant North. Nicholson's restaurant "blowup" scene ("You want me to hold the chicken?") alone is worth the price of admission. The film is a special favorite of Ingmar Bergman's.
Five Films About September 11 on the Fifth Anniversary

Five Finger Exercise
Released: 1962
Rated:

Botched adaptation of Peter Schaffer's first big dramatic success--a chamber play about an upper class family thrown into turmoil by a handsome German tutor.

Five Million Years To Earth

UFO's in London. Tricky, offbeat -- a sleeper.

An in-shallow look at the worldwide phenomenon of hip-hop
Flags of Our Fathers
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Clint Eastwood portrays the six American soldiers who famously raised the flag during the World War II battle of Iwo Jima. The story detours from a deconstruction of the hero myth into a sentimental road tour of the home front. (M.B.)

Flaming Creatures

Rated: NR

Flaming Star
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An exciting, antiracist Western with Presley in an effective -- and non-singing --performance as a half-breed torn between both sides. Elvis' next best move after "King Creole": if he'd continued in the dark, iconoclastic vein of these two --instead of with the string of idiocies he made in the Sixties -- he might have become a major film actor.
Flash Gordon
Released: 1980
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Although NASA scientists are claiming the unexpected eclipse and strange (TMS)
Flash of Genius
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The true story of engineer Robert Kearns (Greg Kinnear), who invented the intermittent windshield wiper, then battled corporate greed and chicanery when Detroit stole the idea. Despite an obsessiveness bordering on (and occasionally toppling over into) mania, Kearns just doesn’t have the kind of larger-than-life personality we look for in our cinematic little-guy heroes. (J.R.)
Flashdance
Released: 1983
Rated:
Now Playing? No
This feeble froth about a girl welder who just wants to dance is given a high-gloss, super glitz MTV style production and hopped up with supercharged Giorgio Moroder techno-pop. As artificial as they make them (despite some good musical numbers), but it scored hot and heavy with audiences. (M.W.)
