SECOND RUN^ back to top


The Accountant

Ben Affleck stars in this action thriller as an autistic, OCD-afflicted math savant who cooks the books for various high-dollar criminal clients. When the Treasury Department closes in on his activities, however, he takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a "legitimate" client. Unfortunately, corporate America turns out to be more dangerous than the Mob. 128 minutes R.

Almost Christmas

Omar Epps, Danny Glover, Gabrielle Union, Mo'Nique, J.B. Smoove, Romany Malco and Kimberley Elise star in this comedy drama about a dysfunctional family that gets together for their first Christmas since their mother died. Your basic laughing and crying gig from the writer-director of First Sunday and Baggage Claim. 112 minutes PG-13.

Deepwater Horizon

Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell and John Malkovich star in this gritty, no-nonsense encapsulation of the worst disaster in US oil-drilling history. Director Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Lone Survivor) knows how to stage crowd-pleasing action. As explosion-filled disaster movies go, it's stirring. But the film never figures out how to address deeper questions about this environmental disaster and the corporate culture that allowed it to happen. 107 minutes PG-13.

The Girl on the Train

Paula Hawkins' twisty bestseller heads to theaters as a glossy mystery thriller. Emily Blunt stars as an unstable alcoholic divorcée who becomes embroiled in a missing persons investigation that threatens to send shockwaves through her life. Blunt gives it all she's got, but the confusing, sluggish story ties itself into way too many knots. 112 minutes R.

Incarnate

Incarnate

Chistmas is coming, so now is as good a time as any to whip out another one of those cheap exorcism dramas. Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Carice Van Houten ("Game of Thrones") and David Mazouz ("Gotham") star in this standard-issue tale about a demon-possessed kid for director Brad Peyton (who gave us the equally terrifying Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore). FULL REVIEW: The devil is not in the details in redundant new exorcism drama by Devin D. O’Leary (12/8/2016). 91 minutes PG-13.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Tim Burton directs this fantasy-adventure based on the popular YA novel by Ransom Riggs (who basically took a bunch of weird Victorian photographs and made up stories about them). Eva Green stars as the titular Miss Peregrine, the headmistress of a well-hidden home for children with bizarre powers. Think Harry Potter crossed with the X-Men crossed with a whole lotta Tim Burton. Asa Butterfield, Samuel L. Jackson, Judi Dench, Rupert Everett. Terence Stamp and Allison Janney round out the impressive cast. 127 minutes PG-13.

Ouija: Origin of Evil

The scares are amped up in this in-name-only prequel to 2014's bloodless Ouija. In 1967 Los Angeles, a widowed mother and her two daughters unwittingly invite a demonic presence into their home in a misguided attempt to bolster their seance scam business. When the youngest daughter is possessed by supernatural forces, the family fights to save her. Writer-director Mike Flanagan (Oculus) does a way better job with this old-fashioned frightener than anyone could have reasonably expected. 99 minutes PG-13.

Storks

From the studio that gave us The Lego Movie comes this CGI cartoon about storks--you know, the kind who deliver babies. Adam Samberg, Jennifer Aniston, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Ty Burrell and Danny Trejo are among the bird-based voice cast. 89 minutes PG.

Trolls

Those hideous, hirsute troll dolls from the early 1960s (with occasional flare-ups of popularity in the '70s, '80s and '90s) finally get their own CGI movie, courtesy of DreamWorks. The story involves happy troll Poppy and curmudgeonly troll Branch, who are forced to team up and save their woodland village from evil invaders. Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, Gwen Stefani and John Cleese supply the voices. Eh, it beats The Pet Rock Movie--which, laugh all you like, is probably coming. 92 minutes PG.
