The Jane Austen Book Club
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A group of women (Amy Brenneman, Maria Bello, Kathy Baker, Emily Blunt, Maggie Grace) get together once a month to filter their relationship problems through Austen’s oeuvre. The movie is tame – Austen-lite. (K.W.)
The Jazz Singer

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Jerk
Released: 1979
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Joker Is Wild

Sinatra as a nitery comic who gets too close to the mob. Based on Joe E. Lewis' bio.
The Jokers
Released: 1967
Rated:
Now Playing? No
High living pranksters plot Crown Jewels caper, but fate has a stinger in its tail. Most whimsy from the blood-red sunset of the British Empire. (M.W.)
The Jolson Story
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The story of the man whose "Swannee" set your spine tingling, who Zelda Fitzgerald thought was Jesus Christ, and whose "You ain't heard nothin' yet!" launched the movies into the sound era. Incredibly popular, it revived Jolson's own career (he dubbed all the songs) at its twilight.
The Joneses
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A seemingly regular suburban family is really a stealth marketing team, employed to lure neighbors into purchasing products. Demi Moore and David Duchovny are well cast, and at first the premise works beautifully, but after the cultural critique falls by the wayside the film never recovers. (K.J.)
The Jungle Book
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Kipling's perennial about Mowgli the wolf-boy, and Bagheara and Sheer Khan, and the deeps of the jungle, in a typically sumptuous Korda adaptation.
The Jungle Book 2
Released: 2003
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
The Karate Kid
Released: 2010
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Jaden Smith is the 12-year-old who learns martial arts from master Jackie Chan to fight a bully in this winning update of the ‘80s classic. The script hits all the right beats, and Chan and Smith give strong performances. (M.S.)
The Karate Kid (1984)
Released: 1984
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The 1984 film about an elderly martial arts master (Pat Morita) who gives a bullied boy (Ralph Macchio) lessons in both karate and life.
The Kennel Murder Case
Released: 1933
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Best of all the Philo Vance mysteries - and the standard '30s Warners studio product at its stickiest and fastest.
The Keys Of The Kingdom
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A.J. Cronin's religious novel, sensitively adapted by one of Hollywood's Masters of Soap, John Stahl.
The Kid
Released: 1920
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Charlie Chaplin's first feature - a hilarious poignant film about a sweet, gentlemanly tramp who befriends a small child and then fights to keep him. Chaplinesque comedy at its highest pitch of perfection, and a genuine film classic.
The Kid Brother
Released: 1927
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Kid From Brooklyn
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Milkman turns hapless pugilist; a Kaye-tailored remake of The Milky Way (McCarey's, not Bunuel's).
The Kid From Spain
Released: 1932
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An early Goldwyn musical - with a mistaken identity-toreador plot - directed and choreographed by two of the best there ever were Leo McCarey and Busby Berkeley. (M.W.)
The Kid Stays In the Picture
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Kid With a Bike
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Belgian brothers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne wrote and directed this anguished, restrained drama about a volatile boy (Thomas Doret) in foster care who is taken in by a kindly woman (Cécile de France). Doret is remarkable as he conveys the anger and sadness of a kid who shouldn't have to deal with such tough stuff. (K.B.)
The Kids Are All Right
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The teenage children of two women (Annette Bening, Julianne Moore) seek to meet the guy (Mark Ruffalo) who provided half their genes. The narrative may be an attempt to show that gay marriage's bumps and bruises are just like straight marriage's, but that only means it's too familiar a story. (S.R.)
The Kids Are Alright
Released: 1979
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and the late, great Keith Moon talk about th-th-th-their generation. (M.W.)
The Killer Elite
Released: 1975
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A twistless anti-CIA thriller redeemed by Mad Sam and his wizardry editing. The climax is incandescent. (M.W.)
The Killer Inside Me
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this adaptation of a Jim Thompson crime novel, a rural Texas flatfoot (Carey Affleck) masks the sexual sadist and pyschopathic killer within. Everything about the film is miscalculated, including the sadistic violence. (M.B.)
The Killer Shrews
Released: 1959
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Killers
Released: 1964
Rated:
Now Playing? No
This movie has almost nothing to do with its alleged source, the Hemingway short story, but it's a model B melodrama all the same, with a great premise: Two icy-cold hitmen decide to unravel the mystery of why their victim was marked for death. Siegel keeps it moving like a house afire; it's full of startling violence and perverse bits of character and atmosphere. As the gang chief whom the killers find at the end of the labyrinth, Ronald Reagan gives his last screen performance - and maybe his best. He gives a chilling authority to lines like "I believe in larceny, but homicide is against my principles."
The Killers
Released: 1946
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A kid named Nick Adams stops for coffee in Henry's Lunch Room and runs into two sarcastic gents who can't get served the roast pork tenderloin or the chicken croquettes, and have to settle for ham and eggs. Soon he discovers they're waiting for something: they've been hired to kill one of the regular customers...This was Ernest Hemingway's personal favorite of all the movies adapted from his stories, though (like To Have And Have Not) only the first 15 minutes have anything to do with the story; the rest is murky, exciting high film noir stuff - a heist thriller of the kind (uncredited) scenarist John Huston would later apotheosize in The Asphalt Jungle.
The Killers Live at Royal Albert Hall
Released: 2009
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Killing
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Stanley Kubrick's Hollywood debut, although at the age of 26, he had already shot two independent features in New York City. It's a hard, cool, gemlike thriller - in the vein of "The Asphalt Jungle" and "The Killers" - about an intricate racetrack robbery. Kubrick shows the events from the perspectives of all the participants, and the robbery keeps recurring with dreamlike obsessiveness. Psychologically, "The Killing" is adolescent; but it's an ingenious piece of technique - a sort of "rashomon" cubed. Watching it, it's easy to see why its director, in 1956, was often called "the young Orson Welles."
The Killing of John Lennon
Released: 2007
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This arty docudrama traces Mark David Chapman’s every step from months before the murder until he was safely tucked away in Attica Prison. Using every camera trick in the book, the movie tries to show us what it was like inside Chapman’s celebrity-stalking head, but if you ask me, there’s nobody at home. (K.W.)
