SECOND RUN^ back to top


Alice Through the Looking Glass

Disney's re-jiggered, live-action Alice in Wonderland returns in another eye-boggling fantasy outing produced by (but not directed by) Tim Burton. This time around, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) is forced to travel back in time to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and defeat the evil machinations of Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen). 113 minutes PG.

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.

Captain America: Civil War

Marvel steps in to show DC how superhero conflict is done. This smartly written action flick bristles with contemporary moral quandaries. And yet it's fast, fun and light on its feet. Seems that the near disastrous events of the last Avengers movie have made many question the whole idea of superpowered heroics. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), for example, thinks heroes should now be regulated by the U.N. Captain America (Chris Evans), on the other hand, thinks otherwise. What follows is a head-to-head battle that forces a lot of familiar faces (and a few new ones) to choose sides. 146 minutes PG-13.

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.

Independence Day: Resurgence

It's been 20 years since those national monument-destroying space aliens got destroyed by an Apple laptop computer virus. Now it seems they're back--and rather embarrassed for having gone out like such punks. They've brought some even more humongous spaceships with them this time, capable of causing even more CGI destruction. It's up to a new generation of freedom fighters (Liam Hemsworth, Jessie T. Usher among them) as well as a few familiar faces (Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner, Vivica A. Fox) to kick alien ass once again. 120 minutes PG-13.

Movies West Fri-Thu 2:45, 8:45

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book

Unlike Disney's recent live-action Cinderella , Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz revamps, this family fantasy sticks pretty close to the original cartoon version. John Favreau (Elf, Iron Man) does an admirable job directing one kid and a whole bunch of CGI animals. Star Neel Sethi is a ball of energy, leaping and tumbling his way from one action sequence to the next. A string of celebrity voices (Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken) take on the familiar characters. The action is a bit intense at times for the littlest of tykes. The decision to include two of the songs from the original Disney cartoon is odd, but doesn't upset the overall balance of the adventurous film. FULL REVIEW: Fancy computer animation brings Kipling classic to life by Devin D. O’Leary (4/21/2016). 105 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.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

This raunchy comedy is (very) loosely based on the (sorta) true story of two brothers who advertised for wedding dates on Craigslist. Zac Efron and Adam Devine are the bozo bros. Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza are the skanky ladies who pretend to be "nice girls" in order to score a free trip to Hawaii. There's a lot of nudity and cursing. 98 minutes R.

Now You See Me 2

The gang of gonzo magicians-turned-criminals led by Jesse Eisenberg returns for more unlawful shenanigans. This time around they're being blackmailed by a tech genius into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan join the already stuffed cast (Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine). 129 minutes PG-13.

The Shallows

Blake Lively (of "Gossip Girl") stars in this minimalist horror thriller for Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax, Orphan, Non-Stop). She plays a young surfer who is attacked and stalked by a great white shark a mere 200 yards off shore--touching off a contest of wills in which our harried heroine must marshal all of her strength and skills in order to survive. 87 minutes PG-13.
Movies 8 Fri-Thu 3:20, 9:20

X-Men: Apocalypse

The X-Men timeline (rebooted all to hell by 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past) heads into the 1980s with a handful of familiar faces (James McAvoy's Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique) and a bunch of unfamiliar ones (Sophie Turner's Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp's Storm). This time around an immortal mutant from ancient Egypt (The Force Awakens' Oscar Isaac) is back and trying to wipe out all of humanity. There's plenty of action to be had, but the script feels far too cliché-filled and retrograde explodey in today's post-Civil War MCU world. 144 minutes PG-13.
