The Adventurers (1995, 110 min., NR)

Popular Hong Kong singer-actor Andy Lau Tak-wah stars as a vengeance-obsessed air force pilot in Ringo Lam's latest effort, The Adventurers -- a less-than-perfect, but adequately entertaining action/melodrama that overcomes its clichéd plotting thanks to some ...

The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland (1999, 77 min., G)

Adventures of Felix (2000, 95 min., NR)

The Adventures of Huck Finn (1993, 108 min., PG)

It's hard to know who might be the targeted audience for this seventh film adaptation of Mark Twain's classic novel. Some of the material is simply too scary for kids yet this rendition has also been ...

The Adventures of Pinocchio (1996, 96 min., G)

In The Adventures of Pinocchio, director Steve Barron (Coneheads, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) assumes a daunting task in retelling the classic story of the wooden puppet and his kindly “father” Geppetto that was brilliantly brought to ...

The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002, 96 min., PG-13)

I have to admit being at least a little bit curious about a film whose release dates have been shuffled more times than a tired deck of cards and was not screened for critics anywhere in ...

All Power wants is to be the best possible air drummer he can be.

A trio of “showgirls” – two drag queens and one transgender – venture out of tolerant, big-city Sydney and into the wilds of central Australia.

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000, 88 min., PG)

Rocket J. Squirrel (voiced by June Foray) and Bullwinkle J. Moose (voiced by Keith Scott) return after a 35-year absence in this wildly uneven but occasionally hilarious updating that takes the animated duo and pits them ...

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D (2005, 92 min., PG)

Robert Rodriguez adds a dimension with this kids fantasy movie, but only in the most literal sense – 3-D.

The Adventures of Tintin (2011, 107 min., PG)

Steven Spielberg brings Hergé's comic books to animated life.

Aeon Flux (2005, 95 min., PG-13)

Its heart is in the right place, but Aeon Flux's head is just a little too high to make much sense.

Affliction (1997, 110 min., R)

"Some days I feel just like a whipped dog," says Wade Whitehouse (Nolte). The sad, uncomprehending look in his eyes both confirms his words and foreshadows the ones that follow: "… someday, I swear, I'm gonna ...

Afghan Star (2009, 87 min., NR)

In Afghanistan's version of American Idol, there's a lot more at stake than the glory.

Afraid of the Dark (1991, 91 min., R)

African Cats (2011, 89 min., G)

Lions and cheetahs in the African savanna look lovely onscreen but are imbued with human emotions.

After Earth (2013, 100 min., PG-13)

Often gorgeous, sometimes fascinating, this Smith-family outing is ultimately unwieldy and unsurprising.

After Innocence (2005, 95 min., NR)

This documentary raises staggering questions about virtually every aspect of the criminal-justice system as it follows what happens to several convicts who have been exonerated by DNA evidence submitted by the Innocence Project.

After Life (2004, 118 min., NR)

They file in one by one, emerging from a hazy white light into the waiting area of what appears to be some drab, pre-computer-age social service agency. Most, but not all, of them are old; they ...

After the Sunset (2004, 100 min., PG-13)

Possibly the ideal film to more or less ignore while lounging poolside and sipping Jamaican rum, After the Sunset is 100-proof pap.

A woman creates a tempest in her domestic teapot when she invites a lap dancer to stay with her family.
