SECOND RUN^ back to top


Ben-Hur

Jack Huston ( "Boardwalk Empire") takes over for Charlton Heston (no pressure) in this actionized new adaptation of Lew Wallace's acclaimed novel about a Jewish prince enslaved by the Romans. Director Timur Bekmambetov (Night Watch, Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) goes full-on Gladiator with this 3D spectacle. There's a bit more Christ (played by Rodrigo Santoro from 300) in this go-around ... and a lot more chariot racing. At least Morgan Freeman's around to do the wise mentor thing. 124 minutes PG-13.

The BFG

British humorist Roald Dahl's beloved bedtime fable about a kindly giant who refuses to eat children comes to life courtesy of director Steven Spielberg and screenwriter Melissa Mathison (who teamed up on a little film called E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial). Oscar winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) gives voice to the titular (CGI-rendered) Big Friendly Giant. 117 minutes PG.

Central Intelligence

Big, muscular Dwayne Johnson and tiny, motormouthed Kevin Hart are a couple of old high school pals reunited through Facebook for one of them buddy action-comedy adventures. Hart is a mild-mannered accountant and Johnson is an international superspy. Hijinks ensue. 114 minutes PG-13.

Ice Age: Collision Course

Jeez, how many of these movies have they made? So many, apparently, that the Pleistocene Age animals (voiced again by Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo and Queen Latifah) are now reenacting the plot to Armageddon. Yup, a giant meteoroid is heading towards Earth threatening to wipe out mammal-kind--and it's up to a mammoth, a sloth and a saber-toothed tiger to stop it. Hey, kids gotta learn history somehow. 94 minutes PG.

The Legend of Tarzan

Alexander Skarsgard ("True Blood") is our Tarzan and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) is our Jane, returned to Africa after several years to investigate the suspicious goings-on at a mining encampment in Congo on the part of colonizing Belgian King Leopold II. David Yates (director of the last four Harry Potter movies) helms this original story, loosely based on the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs. It could have used a few more epic set-pieces and a slightly pulpier tone, but this one gets a lot right, balancing action and drama and giving audiences one of the best on-screen Tarzans. 109 minutes PG-13.

Lights Out

Lights Out

A ghost haunts a mentally unstable mother and her emotionally traumatized kids. This ghost, though, is afraid of the light. So, naturally, everybody arms themselves with faulty flashlights and goes creeping around in the dark. The slightly clever gimmick (based on a short film by the same director) is stretched thin over the course of the film's sub-90-minute runtime. If you're a big fan of "jump out and go boo!" ghost movies (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Conjuring), this inexpensive fright film is for you. FULL REVIEW: Under-illuminated ghost story is too dim to really be scary by Devin D. O’Leary (7/21/2016). 81 minutes PG-13.

Nerve

Borrowing more than a little inspiration from the Thai film 13: Game of Death (and its American remake 13 Sins), this tween-themed horror thriller finds a high school senior (Emma Roberts) lured into an online game in which she must complete a string of increasingly deadly stunts in order to win big bucks. It's based on the young adult novel by Jeanne Ryan. 96 minutes PG-13.
