The Legend of Tarzan

"The Legend of Tarzan" is the kind of movie you'll pass at a Redbox in six months and wonder, “Hey, when did that come out?”
The Phantom (Billy Zane) and his trusty steed, Hero, battle evil forces in "The Phantom," a 1996 Paramount Pictures action-adventure directed by Simon Wincer.

Class of 1996: ‘The Phantom’

Considering its lack of personality in hindsight, perhaps “The Phantom” would have been better served betting the house on its old-school aesthetic.

Those pesky aliens are back and wreaking even more havoc in "Independence Day: Resurgence," a 2016 sequel to director Roland Emmerich's 1996 original from Twentieth Century Fox.

Independence Day: Resurgence

Whatever enjoyment you find is an OK-fine white flag, not a willful surrender to spectacle. Though slick, the visuals boast all the awe of a software upgrade.
Jack Black stars in Columbia Pictures' "Goosebumps."

Goosebumps

"Goosebumps" is a fun and entertaining ride through Nostalgia-ville, but the film never really truly feels like what the fans deserved.

Geena Davis and Matthew Modine star in Renny Harlin's "Cutthroat Island," the notoriously unpopular 1995 film that once held the world record for most money lost by a film ($105 million).

Class of 1995: ‘Cutthroat Island’

“Cutthroat Island" isn't the landlubber suggested by its bad reputation. But if all involved knew they were going broke, they should have gone for broke.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Philippe Petit in Tri-Star Pictures' "The Walk" — director Robert Zemeckis's 3-D depiction of Petit's legendary walk between the World Trade Center towers.

The Walk

Although cartoonish qualities sometimes belie its confidence, “The Walk” stands solidly on its own as a thoughtful, crowd-pleasing complement to “Man on Wire.”

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as expedition group leader Scott Fischer in "Everest," an adventure drama based on true events and directed by Baltasar Kormakur.

Everest

A technically magnificent, frighteningly immersive and solidly acted drama about the irresistible force of commerce meeting Mother Nature's immovable object.
Chris Pratt stars as a velociraptor trainer in "Jurassic World," a 2015 Universal Pictures release.

Jurassic World

Pulpy summer fun with more on its mind than you'd think, "Jurassic World" is infused with equal danger, intimacy, intelligence and humor.
