SECOND RUN^ back to top


22 Jump Street

The 2012 comic reboot of teen cop series "21 Jump Street" worked almost entirely thanks to the efforts of its game cast (Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, chiefly). The simple script and low-impact direction certainly didn't add much to the proceedings. This rude follow-up (set in college) tries a little harder, crafting a bigger-stakes story and a perfect storm of self-mocking jokes. It ain't smart, but it does have drug content, brief nudity and a Benny Hill reference. Also, it's been shoved back into theaters for a week so it can make more money. 112 minutes R.
Movies 8 Fri-Thu 6:30, 9:30

Annabelle

Pity the poor, flesh-and-blood stars of The Conjuring. Turns out the inanimate doll got her own spin-off before they did. Seems another nice couple are experiencing deadly supernatural occurrences after they bring a creepy antique doll into their house. Do I sense a team-up with Chucky in the near future? R.

Dolphin Tale 2

Winter, the handicapped dolphin who starred in the inspirational family film about her own life, returns in an even more fictionalized sequel. Here, marine biologists at an aquarium in Florida rescue an even cuter baby dolphin named Hope. Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd and Harry Connick Jr. are the non-dolphin stars. 107 minutes PG.

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.

Let's Be Cops

Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson (still hanging out off the set of FOX's "New Girl") are a couple of struggling pals who decide to dress up as cops for a costume party. Mistaken for real police officers, and afforded respect for the first time in their lives, the two decide to keep up the charade. Unfortunately a collection of real-life mobsters and dirty detectives put our dressed-up do-gooders in mortal danger. Yes, it's as silly as you're thinking. 104 minutes R.

Maleficent

Disney reboots Sleeping Beauty with this live-action fairy tale concentrating more on the (apparently not-so-)evil sorceress (played by Angelina Jolie) and her tragic backstory. Elle Fanning (Super 8) is our soon-to-be-somnolent princess. Jolie is mesmerizing, and the film does a credible and ultimately quite likeable job melding Disney sentiment with certain aspects of the original fairy tale. But it's an odd fantasy that takes a long time to find its tone. 97 minutes PG.

No Good Deed

Taraji P. Henson ("Person of Interest," Think Like a Man) and Idris Elba ("Luther," Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) class up this twisty domestic thriller about a suburban wife and mother who finds her home invaded by a dangerous escaped convict. 84 minutes PG-13.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Überproducer Michael Bay (Bad Boys, Armageddon, Transformers) has his grubby fingerprints all over this unnecessary reboot of the classic comic book/cartoon series. The special effects are a major upgrade, but the story--scarred by all the usual overworked, underwritten tropes of modern screenwriting--takes a lot of liberties with the original. It's not a travesty, but it's probably not what fans want either. 101 minutes PG-13.
