Finding Dory

Finding Dory

Thirteen years after we went looking for Nemo, the CGI toonsters at Pixar take us on a quest to find Dory. Actually, Dory (the bubble-headed blue tang voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) is looking for her long-lost parents. Naturally, there's a lesson about family to be learned along the way. Albert Brooks, Ed O'Neill, Diane Keaton, Idris Elba and Bill Hader provide vocal support. FULL REVIEW: Simple but satisfying sequel follows its own motto and just keeps swimming by Devin D. O’Leary (6/23/2016). 97 minutes PG.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Nobody remembers her now, but in the 1920s, Florence Foster Jenkins was something of a pop culture icon. A New York heiress with dreams of grandeur, she set herself up as an opera singer, recorded a number of records and built her own personal music venue--despite having a truly terrible singing voice. Meryl Streep (as Jenkins) and Hugh Grant (as her oddly loyal "husband") star in this mostly comic, ultimately touching biopic from director Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, The Grifters, The Hi-Lo Country, High Fidelity). 110 minutes PG-13.

Yes, this reboot to the endlessly quotable 1984 supernatural comedy does feature four female leads (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones). If that's a problem, you should just stay home and complain about "feminazis" all you want on the internet. Everybody else can judge this one on its own merits. Is it innovative? No. Is it funny? Pretty much. Basically, if you grew up on the original films, this (much like the recent Star Trek movies) is just a watered-down remake with different actors. If you're fresh to the franchise, it's a perfectly servicable action comedy. 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 Light Between Oceans

The Light Between Oceans

Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines) writes and directs this weepy adaptation of M.L. Stedman's historical romance/tragedy. Michael Fassbender is a shell-shocked World War I veteran who takes a job manning a remote Australian lighthouse. Eventually, he marries a headstrong local lass (Alicia Vikander), but the couple suffer through a string of awful miscarriages. One fateful day, a newborn baby washes up on the shore of their rocky little island. Despite their better judgment, the couple decide to pass the kid off as their own. Yeah, this isn't going to end well. This is as gorgeous and gloomy as a Turner seascape, and the actors give well-measured performances in what amounts to a patient, literate, adult-oriented character study. FULL REVIEW: Tragedy-tinged historical romance floods the ocean with tears by Devin D. O’Leary (9/1/2016). 132 minutes PG-13.

Mechanic: Resurrection

If you think really hard, you might recall that Jason Statham made a Mechanic movie in 2011, in between making Crank, Expendables and Transporter sequels. It was actually a remake of a 1972 Charles Bronson thriller, but you'll be forgiven if the image of it just blurs into those other action flicks. Here Statham is back as an ex-hitman trying to put his violent past behind him until some baddie kidnaps his girlfriend (Jessica Alba, slowly losing all ambition) and forces him to kill some more people. Stuff sure does blow up here, all right. 99 minutes R.

Nine Lives

Barring the discovery of some youthful gay porn outing, this will undoutedly go down as the most embarrassing thing on Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey's resumé. Like some knockoff '70s live-action Disney movie, the plot to this French-funded family comedy finds Spacey cast as a stuffy business tycoon who puts work over family. Thanks to the intervention of magical pet shop owner Christopher Walken (no, really), Spacey is transformed into a cat named Mr. Fuzzypants. Now he has just one week to learn his lesson and reconcile with his family (as a cat, mind you) or he'll be a feline forever. 87 minutes PG.

War Dogs

Jonah Hill (Superbad, Moneyball) and Miles Teller (Whiplash, Divergent) star in this loosely-based-on-a-true-story comedy/drama about two young hustlers who somehow landed a $300 million Pentagon contract to supply arms to America's allies in Afghanistan. What follows is a bleak comedy of errors involving a lot of guns and a lot of bad people. 114 minutes R.
