Rise of the Planet of the Apes

He looked bored at this year’s Oscars. And apparently Rise of the Planet of the Apes doesn’t excite James Franco either.

 
Rite, The

While The Rite’s conclusion is somewhat gratifying, the supernatural thriller botches enough spiritual points along the way to make one wonder about its intentions.

Road to Perdition

The story makes a strong statement about fathers, weaving together several father/son relationships.

 
Road, The

The movie version of Cormac McCarthy's The Road is a story of a father and son trying to survive after an apocalyptic event. Although God is discussed, he is never embraced, yet The Road shows the importance of the power of hope to overcome bitterness and cynicism.

Robin Hood (2010)

Despite its running time, it's hard to look away from the well-composed images and action spectacles, and from the compelling actors trying to make something interesting of characters that should have been better fleshed out.

 
RoboCop (2014)

A lot has changed in nearly three decades, but there's simply not much need for a RoboCop reboot. Audiences have been there, seen that.

Robots

The standard for family films has dropped so low that it is now very rare indeed to see a good, animated film which does not contain bawdy humor. This makes movies like “The Incredibles” all the more exceptional. So, as with other “family” films that have vulgar content, I must give this one a mixed review.

Rock of Ages

While the movie poster promises “nothin’ but a good time,” Rock of Ages is certainly not good cinema for the whole family.

 
Rocket Science

This film by writer/director Jeffrey Blitz pulls back the veil on high school debating, showing us the popular rapid-fire speech pattern called “spreading.” He also portrays what it’s like to be in high school, without all the clichés that plague other school films.

Rocky Balboa

Rocky’s back – although sweet Adrian is gone. And, although you’re probably bracing yourself for another bad sequel, as I was, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at this final episode in this series.

Rollerball

How did this film manage to get a "PG-13" rating?

 
Romeo and Juliet (2013)

Doesn't redefine Shakespeare's tragic love story for a new generation, but it should find a receptive audience among younger viewers.

Romulus, My Father

Despite its stunning cinematography, Romulus, My Father plods along, moving from one scene to another, without reaching any real resolution. Director Richard Roxburgh doesn't seem to have any message, either, which makes the film feel shallow.

Rookie, The

One of the best baseball movies ever made. Much more than just a story about the sport, it's testimony that God can give second chances in life no matter how old a person is.

 
Roving Mars

Roving Mars is an engaging, well-made film that will interest even young children, provided parents are willing to narrate what is happening on-screen as NASA scientists send geologist robots ("rovers") to the distant planet of Mars.

Royal Tenenbaums, The

A brilliant cast delivers a bizarre story that manages to make a profound statement (about the effects of divorce and absent fathers) in a hilarious but weird way.

 
Ruby Sparks

Though not without promise, the story and its moral feel more appropriate to a TV-length program rather than a feature film.

 
Rugrats Go Wild

This is a fun-filled family movie that little ones will enjoy because it stars familiar characters from TV that they've come to know and love. Parents, you'll enjoy a few laughs along with the kids and overall, the family will be able to enjoy the adventure.

 
Rum Diary, The

While The Rum Diary hints at themes of political and corporate corruption, it never invites deeper analysis of its story.

Runaway Jury

For those of you who are John Grisham fans and wondering if the movie is anything remotely like his 1996 best-selling legal literary thriller, it’s not. It's a political soapbox against gun manufacturers and does it in such an obvious, over-the-top way, that it should be embarrassing to everyone involved.
