Flawed, but it only takes one special element to set a film apart. Here, it's a loony performance from the great Jeff Bridges.

Rabbit Hole

Not only is it an honest portrayal of how people respond to grief so differently, but it also serves as an important reminder that pat answers aren't always the best medicine.

Race to Witch Mountain

Instead of shooting for a straight remake, filmmakers prefer to call the latest installment a "reimagining." And given the slightly cheesy, low-grade special effects of Race to Witch Mountain’s predecessor, that's probably accurate.

Rachel Getting Married

Rachel Getting Married's title is vaguely misleading, and its ads are borderline deceptive. Based on those alone, one might assume this is a feel-good dramedy with an indie vibe. It’s not and is one of the most intense depictions of familial conflict since Ordinary People.

Racing Stripes

I’m still a stickler for good characterization and good dialogue. For this and other reasons, I couldn’t help but be impressed by “Racing Stripes,” a lovely movie that children, parents and everyone but the most cynical will enjoy.

I'm putting this one on my list of favorite family films because of the powerful message and precious story that I think kids will enjoy just as much as the grownups. If you enjoy stories of overcoming the odds like “Rudy,” then you’ll love “Radio.”


Short on budget and famous actors, but undeniable authenticity in the storytelling helps set it apart from many other faith-based films.

Railway Man, The

Hasn't been promoted to Christians, yet it’s an inspiring, powerful film that revolves around the tension between justice and mercy.

Raising Helen

Overall, this film was a huge disappointment. Wait for the video, if you must. Better still, rent Diane Keaton’s 1987 classic, “Baby Boom.” Same plot, but with a great script and great acting. And no fake pastors.


The new film Rambo, directed by and starring Sylvester Stallone, presents an interesting case study on the idea of suffering and reacquaints us with John Rambo, a troubled Vietnam vet who has a hard time overcoming his killer instincts.

Ramona and Beezus

The latest adaptation from Walden Media of a beloved series of children's books is unobjectionable G-rated family entertainment. It's not very cinematic, nor is it memorably performed by its lead actresses, but a charming performance by John Corbett as the girls' father helps the film immensely.


With striking framing and imagery, Rango will stir the souls of cinephiles with its visual references to the likes of Sergio Leone and John Ford, as well as non-Western films like Chinatown.


Armed with loads of life lessons (and thankfully, not presented in a cloying, heavy-handed manner) and a clever script, Ratatouille has all the right ingredients to delight—even if resourceful rats aren’t usually your speed.

Raven, The

If you see The Raven, you're likely to mutter the word from Poe’s well-known poem that shares this film’s title: "Nevermore."


The life of Ray Charles is a very compelling story, but it’s not always pretty. When a dirt-poor, blind boy from the rural, segregated South becomes one of the most legendary singers of all time, however, it’s definitely worth watching – especially when the film is a sure-fire, Oscar-winner on multiple counts.

Reader, The

The Reader may be a well-regarded novel that gained popularity as an "Oprah’s Book Club" selection, but this film adaptation is exploitative and ineffective. Its focus on sexual intimacy between a teenager and a much older woman is made without apology.

Real Steel

Not to be confused with those Transformers robots in disguise, Real Steel has an actual human pulse.

Reaping, The

An outlandish thriller that uses the 10 plagues of “Exodus” as a modern-day gimmick to serve its own wacky ideas about God, the devil and the fate of humanity, he Reaping struggles to build any sense of suspense before delivering up a whopper of an ending that will generate more chuckles than chills.


Like this past summer's surprise hit The Expendables, the bulk of Red's cast may qualify for AARP card-carrying status—Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, etc. But it's a serious mistake to underestimate their strength.

Does just about everything RED did, just not quite as well. Makes attempts at the same charm and flair but the execution is often forced.

Example: "Gen 1:1" "John 3" "Moses" "trust"
