This image released by Fox Searchlight Films shows Nate Parker as Nat Turner, center, in a scene from "The Birth of a Nation."  Slavery stories were scarce prior to 2012, but their proliferation has led some to question whether viewers are becoming weary of the genre, or if Hollywood is only finally addressing the oppressive and brutal institution that lasted four centuries and remains part of the country’s legacy today.

    Movies in a Minute: ‘The Magnificent Seven’

    “The Magnificent Seven” is a remake of a 1960 Western classic, but I’m sad to say the new one does not live up to the original.

    Movies in a Minute: ‘Hell or High Water’

    Let’s set the stage for this one right now: “Hell or High Water” is an instant classic. It’s easily my favorite for best film of the year.

    Movies in a Minute: ‘Sausage Party’
    Bruce St. James | August 12, 2016 6:27 am

    To start things, let’s get this out of the way. ‘Sausage Party’ is a warranted rated R. Heck, it ought to be double-R. It is crude, it is rude, it is socially unacceptable.

  • In this image released by Open Road Films, former New Orleans Saints safety Steve Gleason appears with his son Rivers in a scene from the documentary "Gleason." The film follows Gleason and his wife, Michel, into the maelstrom of ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, as the couple adjusts to their fluctuating reality and makes way for their son, Rivers.

    I can’t say it enough: “Gleason,” a film about former New Orleans Saints safety Steve Gleason’s battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease, is an amazing movie.

    Movies in a Minute: ‘Jason Bourne’
    Bruce St. James | July 29, 2016 4:30 pm

    “Jason Bourne” feels like pieces of all the older films spliced together, in ways that don’t benefit the flow of the movie.

    Movies in a Minute: ‘Absolutely Fabulous’

    Most movies based off old TV shows give new viewers background information so they can understand what’s going on. “Absolutely Fabulous” didn’t do that.

    Another Ice Age movie? How many have there been now? With “Ice Age: Collision Course” in theaters Friday, I can’t keep up with this series anymore.

    Movies in a Minute: ‘Ghostbusters’
    Bruce St. James | July 15, 2016 11:49 am

    The new “Ghostbusters” isn’t really as funny as I’d hoped. I would describe it as being more of silly. Overall, I just feel this movie was unnecessary.

    Movies in a Minute: ‘The Legend of Tarzan’

    Tarzan leaves the jungle and returns as Lord Greystone to save the Congo. This story might feel a little new and untold to us.
