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.

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.

Dark Horse

This is the inspirational true story of a Welsh barmaid who talked her friends and customers into investing their hard-earned money into breeding a race horse. Like all uplifting sports documetaries, the outcome of this one is fairly predictable. But filmmaker Louise Osmond (Deep Water, The Blitz: London's Longest Night) uses interviews, archival footage and dramatic recreations to enliven her underdog narrative. 85 minutes PG.

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.

Ghostbusters

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.

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.

The Infiltrator

Bryan Cranston (Walter White himself) stars as real-life figure Robert Mazur in this criminally minded biopic. During the 1980s Mazur was a US Customs agent who helped bust Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar's money-laundering organization by going deep undercover. The film is Scorsese light, but Cranston is typically textured as a rather ordinary family man performing a dangerous high wire act. 127 minutes R.

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.

The Lobster

The Lobster

Idiosyncratic Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth) spins this absurdist comedy about a future dystopia in which romantic relationships are required by law. Lose your partner and you have 45 days to find a new one--or you'll be transformed into the lower animal of your choice. Colin Farrell plays a sad-sack singleton shipped off to a creepy, bureaucratic seaside hotel to pair up or get turned into a lobster. The humor (if you can label it that) is purely deadpan, but the eerie production design and gung-ho cast (including Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Léa Seydoux and Ben Whishaw) go with the flow. A distinctly odd and strikingly romantic (or anti-romantic, depending on how you look at it) flight of fancy. FULL REVIEW: Absurdist romance makes monkeys out of us all by Devin D. O’Leary (6/2/2016). 119 minutes R.
High Ridge Fri-Thu 3:40, 10:30

“... And yet, I can’t help but feel our hats could be larger.”

Love & Friendship

Erudite American filmmaker Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco, Damsels in Distress) finally finds a kinship in British author Jane Austen. Here, he adapts a long-lost and rather scandalous Austen novella about a gold-digging widow named Lady Susan (Kate Beckinsale, at her best) who shows up on the doorstep of her in-laws and proceeds to romance her sister-in-law's eligible young brother (Xavier Samuel)--that is until Lady Susan's teenaged daughter gets kicked out of boarding school. Now our sensibly unromantic protagonist has got two get herself and her daughter properly wed. The cast (also encompassing Chloë Sevigny, Stephen Fry and Morfydd Clark) is in tip-top shape and the script is hilariously cynical. FULL REVIEW: Jane Austen anti-romance adds the wit of a modern sophisticate by Devin D. O’Leary (5/19/2016). 92 minutes PG.

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.

The Purge: Election Year

The increasingly timely series of sci-fi-esque thrillers returns for a third outing. This time around it seems a United States Senator (Elizabeth Mitchell) is the front-runner to become the US President. Her first order of business? Eliminate the Purge, which allows Americans to commit any crime they want for one day each year. Naturally, this makes her a major target of anarchy-loving killers during this year's bloody Purge. Can Sergeant Barnes (Frank Grillo, a survivor from The Purge: Anarchy) keep her alive? 105 minutes R.

The Secret Life of Pets

From the makers of the Despicable Me films comes this manic, animated comedy about a New York City terrier named Max who regularly invites his animal friends to hang out at his place while their owners are away at work. Max's happy life is interrupted one day, though, when his owner adopts a stray mutt whom Max instantly dislikes. The slim story is borrowed from any number of Warner Bros. cartoons in which evil dogcatchers chase innocent animals around the city. But the characters are funny and engaging. A who's who of comedians (Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Albert Brooks, Ellie Kemper, Steve Coogan, Hannibal Buress, Dana Carvey) are on talking animal duty. 90 minutes PG.

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.
