    Ignacio Ferreras's traditionally animated Wrinkles is a beautiful, subtle horror movie about the rigors of old age, made all the more horrifying because it will happen to all of us fortunate enough to live a long life.

    I Am I is a remarkably assured debut for director Towne, especially since she's onscreen the majority of the time, and her script eschews the rules of the standard Hollywood amnesia plot, instead following its own internal logic while not shying away from the darker implications of its premise.

    Postman Pat: The Movie is one of the best family films to come down the pike this year.

    Cheatin' is Plympton at the top of his game, and, as always, his individual sequences prove more important than the whole.

    Yoshiura keeps the story fairly linear, while playing with perspective and composing many stunning, vertiginous images that consider the different possibilities of being at war with gravity.

    The picture is beautifully rendered in pencils and watercolors, with some CG, giving it an appropriately timeless storybook look, even though it's set in a mostly modern world of buses and 3-D glasses.

    Bening and Harris have excellent chemistry.

    Johnson is genuinely talented. He's often the best thing in bad movies, and Ratner's Hercules is, at the very least, pretty good.

    Except for the presence of the Internet, the picture feels like a retelling of an ages-old fable. In fact, Moebius is almost weird enough to be a creation myth, and that's no small accomplishment.

    Here's to hoping lax multiplex security allows teenagers to sneak in to this very funny and thoughtful take on how straights often objectify queers — and how increased visibility in the media can result in an expectation to conform to stereotypes.

    Billy Kent's charming HairBrained comes from a long legacy of collegiate comedies but still finds its own identity.

    Viewers looking for a shoot-em-up will be disappointed, but those hankering for an old-school Italian broodfest will find plenty to soak in.

    The bickering goblins make a boffo comedy team, and while there's a recurring fart joke, it borders on classy. That's the power of good anime.

    To Be Takei is never less than joyful — much like the man himself.

    The original story was called "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter," but Takahata's title puts the focus where it belongs.

    The characters aren't quite stylized enough; though they have skinny bodies and disproportionately big heads, their just-realistic-enough facial features often veer into the Uncanny Valley.

    Ultimately, Advanced Style presents these women not as objects of curiosity, but as what they truly are: role models.

    The rom-com elements don't always work, and the conclusion is a bit pat, but Always Woodstock is never less than charming and funny along the way.

    It's occasionally imaginative, and, most importantly, never boring.

    Like burlesque itself, Exposed is at its best when it shows rather than tells.

    After the Dark is a shaggy dog story but an intriguing and frequently beautiful one.

    Frank Gladstone's animated kids' movie The Hero of Color City is a perfectly pleasant pastiche of other movies, the most obvious antecedent being the Toy Story films.

    This occasionally charming November-December romance has elements of a Douglas Sirk woman's weepie... but the movie eventually goes into Woody Allen territory in the best way possible.

    Bad Johnson is probably the most thoughtful movie possible about a penis that takes human form.

    The story is serviceable enough.

    It may be a low bar, but Michael Tiddes's A Haunted House 2 is actually an improvement over its predecessor.

    While it has its moments, Miguel Arteta's comedy relies too much on gender-shaming and emasculation jokes.

    Life of a King isn't setting out to reinvent cinema, or even a genre, but rather just to be a moderately uplifting tale that makes watching chess interesting.

    It's either much smarter and more profound than it's letting on, or it doesn't add up to anything at all. Or maybe both — it's all relative.

    While it doesn't quite encompass everything, the film's still a bit too busy for its own good.
