The Best of Me

This could be the Nicholas Sparksiest adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel to date. In this schmaltz-heavy romance, we've got a blandly photogenic couple (James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan) who tragically break up and then reunite after many years. Boat docks at sunset? Check. Quaint old country barns? Check. Kissing in the rain? Check. It's Nicholas Sparks all right. 117 minutes PG-13.

The Book of Life

Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) produces this candy-coated, fiesta-colored cartoon. In it, two small-town pals (Diego Luna and Channing Tatum) battle for the heart of their childhood sweetheart (Zoe Saldana)--spurned on by a pair of cosmic entities, the angelic La Muerte and the demonic Xibalba. The film's complicated mythology borrows a lot from Mexico's Dia de los Muertos tradition. The result--a sort of reverse Orpheus and Eurydice--is probably too dark for the youngest kids. But this original, unpredictable toon is a vivid seasonal treat for the rest of us. FULL REVIEW: Mexican-themed cartoon offers unexpected seasonal treats by Devin D. O’Leary (10/16/2014). 95 minutes PG.

Gone Girl

Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel Comics' superhero movies take off in a different direction, heading into outer space for this buoyantly comic, endlessly entertaining sci-fi romp. A band of misfits, criminals and brash adventurers is conscripted into saving the galaxy when a powerful alien warlord comes looking for a weapon of cosmos-threatening proportions. Cult filmmaker James Gunn (Tromeo and Juliet, Dawn of the Dead, Slither, Super) writes and directs. Chris Pratt ("Parks and Recreation"), Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), Zoe Saldana (Star Trek) and Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) star. 121 minutes PG-13.

John Wick

In this hard-hitting, rather minimalist action flick, Keanu Reeves plays a retired hitman, an unstoppable force of nature, who goes gunning for some stupid criminals when they kill his dog and steal his car. The brutally efficient character borrows a lot from Richard Stark's Parker novels. But the action is a major blast. 101 minutes R.

The Maze Runner

More post-apocalyptic YA teen lit hits the big screen. In this adaptation of James Dashner's hit book trilogy, a mind-erased teen (Dylan O'Brien, "Teen Wolf") is dropped into a community of "runners" trapped inside a deadly, monster-filled, impossible-to-escape maze. Why? Just wait two more movies and you'll find out. 120 minutes PG-13.

Scrooged

Bill Murray and a cast of funny characters (David Johansen, Carol Kane, Bobcat Goldthwait) take on Dickens in this modern-day retelling of "A Christmas Carol" from 1988. 101 minutes PG-13.
