MovieDescription
The TV Set
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
David Duchovny is a writer-producer trying to get a dramedy inspired by his brother’s suicide onto the fall lineup in this satire of the television industry. The movie isn’t the full-frontal assault that 1976’s Network was, but writer-director Jake Kasdan knows his way around a TV studio. (K.W.)
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Bella (Kristen Stewart) and her vampire beau (Robert Pattinson) get married in this boring, sex-negative adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's novel. Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg continues her long tradition of scripting staggeringly banal, subtext-free dialogue. (K.J.)
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A vampire couple (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson) gathers other fanged clans to help protect their young daughter (Mackenzie Foy). This straight-faced adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s novel seems more like fan fiction than the work of Oscar-winning director Bill Condon. (K.J.)
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In the series' third outing, Bella's (Kristen Stewart) hot-blooded wolf friend (Taylor Lautner) and cold-to-touch vampire beau (Robert Pattison) bicker and tussle, then strike an alliance. Splits the difference between kick-starter Twilight's stylish camp and follow-up New Moon's turgid drama. (K.J.)
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse: The IMAX Experience
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Twilight Saga: New Moon
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The second installment focuses on Bella’s (Kristen Stewart) evolving friendship with werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) after Edward (Robert Pattinson) and his vampire family move away. Director Chris Weitz gives Bella’s post-breakup moping surprising depth, and Lautner provides a spark of vitality. (S.R.)
The Twilight Zone: A Passage for Trumpet

The Twilight Zone: The After Hours

The Twilight's Last Gleaming
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A very bad premise: Disillusioned USAF officer seizes missile silo and threatens to blow up the world unless the U.S. government reveals its Vietnam perfidy. With champions like this, world peace needs no enemies - but Robert Aldrich, grand master of the socko climax, here has a doozie to work with: the end of the world.
The Two Mrs. Carrolls
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Bogey turns to portraiture, murder and hack work - not necessarily in that order. (M.W.)
The Typewriter, the Rifle and the Movie Camera
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The U.S. vs. John Lennon
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A documentary about the Beatleâ??s transformation from pop musician to anti-Vietnam War activist.
The Ugly American
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Muddled adaptation of the Lederer-Burdick roman a clef about inept American diplomacy in Southeast Asia. (M.W.)
The Ugly Truth
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
An uptight TV producer (Katherine Heigl) finds love with her polar opposite, an earthy male chauvinist (Gerard Butler) who joins her program. The characters never come to life, and the film is crassly conceived as a raunchy girls-night-out tale. (M.B.)
The Ultimate Gift
Released: 2006
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this saccharine-sweet Christian film, a trust-fund baby inherits 12 â??giftsâ? that help him determine the true meaning of happiness. (T.B.)
The Ultimate Life
Released: 2013
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A billionaire reexamines his life after discovering his grandfather's journal.
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Released: 1964

Now Playing? No
The Unborn
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A willowy college student (Odette Yustman) is haunted by the specter of a hollow-eyed little boy. This is a dull, plodding, exposition-crammed slog through a twilight of barely maintained tedium. (M.S.)
The Unforeseen
Released: 2007
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This documentary chronicles the battle for the soul of Austin, Tex., in 1992, when environmentalists fought with developers over a local landmark called Barton Springs. The film delves into the conflicts that have come to define the American social identity: private property vs. community rights, growth vs. nature. (J.R.)
The Unforgiven
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Bigotry on the frontier. An exact reversal of the situation in John Ford's The Searchers (here, an Indian girl "adopted" by whites is the object of forays by her relatives), taken from a novel by the same writer, Alan LeMay.
The Uninvited
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Dullish malign visions and unsurprising spectral messages visit a young woman (Emily Browning) fresh out of the asylum. Blandly creepy remake of Kim Ji-woon's A Tale of Two Sisters. (K.J.)
The Uninvited (1944)
Released: 1944
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Spectral revenge at a country mansion: a ghost story for connoisseurs. (M.W.)

A documentary about a father who has second thoughts when his son prepares to play tackle football.
The United States of Leland

Musical curio from the early talkie years. (M.W.)
The Valet
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this mediocre French farce, a hapless valet (Gad Elmaleh) is asked to cover for an adulterous billionaire (Daniel Auteuil) by pretending to be involved with his supermodel mistress. The film has a couple of likable characters, one or two decent jokes, and a lot of missed opportunities. (T.B.)
The Verdict
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Francis Galvin was one a silk-stocking Boston attorney with a brilliant future. Now he is unkempt, alcoholic, an ambulance chaser, whose fall from grace is nearly complete. Into his lap drops an open and shut case: an accident suit against the Boston archdiocese on behalf of a women rendered comatose and brain-damaged after a botched operation at their hospital. But Galvin is not satisfied. Enraged and grief-stricken at the victim's condition and the hospital's callousness, he refuses to settle out of court, presses a huge damage suit. And now every hidden force of the American system of justice - corrupt judges, unscrupulous lawyers, spies and predators - mounts against him. His pursuit of justice becomes a desperate quest for salvation. A "problem" courtroom melodrama, much like Lumet's debut feature, Twelve Angry Men, The Verdict is scalding, relentless, furious - in my opinion a great film.
