Standing in the Shadows of Motown (2002, 104 min., PG)

Dramatization of the famous psychology experiment

Star Kid (1998, 97 min., PG)

Star Maps (1997, 90 min., R)

Everybody hustles; a little here, a little there, it's a fact. But in Miguel Arteta's first feature film, Star Maps, hustling (in the hard core sense of selling your body for sex) is a way of ...

Star Time (1982)

Imagine cross-pollinating Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer with some of David Cronenberg's early work. Now imagine tossing in a bit of David Lynch, some old Marshall McLuhan tirades, and a well-intentioned social conscience. Now imagine ...

Star Trek: First Contact (1996, 120 min., PG-13)

Directed by the Enterprise's executive officer “Number One,” First Contact is what you might expect from Commander Will Riker (Frakes): action, action, chat, action. Not in itself a bad thing -- the Star Trek films have ...

Star Trek: Generations (1994)

There is a much-accepted truism about the Star Trek movies. The odd-numbered films (Star Trek, The Search for Spock, The Final Frontier) are rotten, while the even-numbered films (The Wrath of Khan, The Voyage Home, The ...

Star Trek: Insurrection (1998, 99 min., PG)

Star Trek: Nemesis (2003, 117 min., PG-13)

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005, 140 min., PG-13)

The Force awakens, and a franchise reboots

Star Wars: Special Edition (1997, 125 min., PG)

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008, 98 min., PG)

The only important things in this new animated epic is that viewers be blown away by the endless and pointless laser battles and that girl power comes into its own.

Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones (2002, 143 min., PG-13)

If you managed to catch the Sci-Fi Channel's recent Star Wars Fan Film Awards, during which George Lucas offered up an astonishingly serpentine and generally incomprehensible thank-you to the assorted SW fanatics who have swollen his ...

A sperm donor learns 20 years after the fact that he is the father of 533 children in this mild, French-Canadian comedy.

Stardust (2007, 130 min., PG-13)

This uneven adaptation of Neil Gaiman's bestselling novel is clogged with too much fairy dust.

Stargate (1998)

Starter for 10 (2006, 96 min., PG-13)

This British coming-of-age drama and romantic comedy is fairly predictable, although the charming actors manage to keep the story’s characters just this side of stereotype and mediocrity.

Starting Out in the Evening (2007, 111 min., PG-13)

In this contemplative meditation on the pained aging of literary lions, Frank Langella delivers a brilliant performance as the story's elderly New York City novelist.

Starving the Beast (2016, 95 min., NR)

Doc exposes big money on campus

State and Main (2000, 102 min., R)
