Barbershop: The Next Cut

The gang (Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Anthony Anderson, Eve, Sean Patrick Thomas, Jazsmin Lewis) is all back in this fourth film in the Barbershop series (if you count 2005's Beauty Shop). This time around the shop is co-ed, and everybody's fighting against neighborhood violence. But it's pretty much just people standing around a barber shop bagging on one another. 112 minutes PG-13.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman and Superman duke it out in a grimdark setting that involves lots of glowering, real estate-flattening explosions and concrete-colored costumes. The action is frenetic, the production design is faithful to its comic book roots and there's plenty of fan service--but the film just doesn't differentiate its heroes enough for the long-awaited confrontation to feel particularly justified. Batman and Superman are now both dark, brooding, murderous vigilantes feared by polite society. This crowded, lengthy film wastes a lot of energy setting up future Justice League films, but doesn't spend enough time being fun or escapist or particularly entertaining. FULL REVIEW: Superheroes battle to see who can cause the biggest explosion in unnecessarily dour franchise filler by Devin D. O’Leary (3/24/2016). 153 minutes PG-13.

Rio Rancho Premiere Cinema Fri-Thu 12:20, 7:150

Born To Be Blue

Ethan Hawke stars as jazz trumpet legend Chet Baker in this "re-imagining" of his musical comeback in the late 1960s. To be clear: This isn't a standard-issue, based-on-fact biopic. Instead it's a sort of freeform rumination on several key moments in Baker's life. It concentrates heavily on his heroin addiction, but features some well-realized musical flashbacks as well. Hawke gives one of his best performances. 97 minutes R.
Guild Cinema Tue 4:30

The Boss

Melissa McCarthy ("Mike & Molly," Bridesmaids) stars as a famed business mogul/financial guru who is sent to prison after she's caught for insider trading. When she gets out of prison, she's forced to work off her community service by helping a Girl Scouts-esque organization with their annual baked goods-based fundraiser. Naturally, she seizes on the opportunity to rebuild her financial empire and get revenge on everyone who screwed her over--one brownie at a time. 99 minutes R.

Compadres

In this low-budget Mexican action comedy, a former cop (Omar Chaparro from "Sexo y Otras Secretos") seeks revenge on the crime lord who framed him by teaming up with a tubby young computer hacker (Joey Morgan) who stole $10 million from the bad guys. Writer-director Erique Begne (Busco Novio Para Mi Mujer) is responsible. Athough this American-style buddy comedy was shot in Mexico, it's in English. 101 minutes Unrated.
Century Rio Fri-Thu 2:00, 4:50, 7:40, 10:25

Criminal

In this preposterous ,'90s-era action movie throwback, a CIA agent (Ryan Reynolds) dies in the line of duty, leaving a dangerous computer hacker unapprehended. Naturally, the government recruits a death row murderer (Kevin Costner) and uses an experimental medical procedure to "inject" their agent's memories directly into his brain. Of course the confused guinea pig escapes from jail and wanders around wondering if he should kill people or save the world. Stuff blows up a lot, and you can probably guess which direction our protagonist decides to go. 113 minutes R.

Deadpool

Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds single-handedly tries to rescue his cult superhero for the horribly botched 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He succeeds beyond the wildest dreams of most comic book fans. In this self-mocking parody, he stars as a brain-addled mercenary who gains incredible healing powers but loses his good looks thanks to a little mad science. Boil it down and the film is your basic "get revenge on the bad guy and rescue the girlfriend" plot. But the third-wall-breaking humor, raunchy sex and over-the-top violence make this a shockingly fun "adult" action comedy. FULL REVIEW: Comic books get comic in R-rated superhero parody by Devin D. O’Leary (2/11/2016). 108 minutes R.

Elvis & Nixon

Michael Shannon ("Boardwalk Empire," Take Shelter, Man of Steel) and Kevin Spacey (The Usual Suspects, American Beauty, "House of Cards") star in this historical comedy relating the "untold true story" behind the infamous 1970 meet-and-greet between Elvis Presley and Richard Nixon. 86 minutes R.

Everybody Wants Some!!

Richard Linklater writes and directs this spiritual sequel to his 1993 opus Dazed and Confused. Moving from high school in the '70s to college in the '80s, he crafts a free-flowing ensemble comedy that manages to ask some hard-hitting sociological questions about where we've been and where we're going. 117 minutes R.

Alan Rickman and Aaron Paul costar in this tense suspense drama about the morality of military drones. South African Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ender's Game) directs. 102 minutes R.

God's Not Dead 2

Faith-based audiences flocked to see 2014's evil atheist college professor drama God's Not Dead. In this spiritual (in more ways than one) sequel, a high school teacher goes to court to defend her in-class love of Jesus. (See, not all teachers are godless heathen.) Unfortunately evil atheist lawmakers are trying to stand in her way. By proving that God is dead. In court. Basically, this is Miracle on 34th Street, but with Jesus instead of Santa. Melissa Joan Hart, Jesse Metcalfe, Ray Wise, Robin Givens, Ernie Hudson and Pat Boone (!) are among the random, C-list Hollywood cast. 121 minutes PG.

Hardcore Henry

This gimmicky, nonstop action flick is shot entirely in first-person (with a GoPro camera), through the eyes of the main character. Yes, it looks just like a FPS video game. Having just been resurrected from death with no memory, our hero wakes up in the unfamiliar city of Moscow where he must discover his identity and save his wife from an evil warlord with a plan to bioengineer cybernetic supersoldiers. Sharlto Copley (The A-Team) and Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs) are the few recognizable faces among the mostly Russian cast and crew. 96 minutes R.

Hello, My Name is Doris

Sally Field reestablishes her bona fides with this comedy/drama/romance about a sixty-something wallflower who attends a self-help seminar and is inspired to romantically pursue her much-younger co-worker (Max Greenfield from "New Girl"). Co-writer/director Michael Showalter (Wet Hot American Summer, The Baxter, "Stella") displays a much more grown-up sense of humor here, deftly tackling the issue of ageism with the help of an enormously appealing lead actor. 95 minutes R.

A Hologram for the King

Tom Hanks stars in this odd comedy-drama about a failed American businessman who tries to recoup his financial losses by traveling to Saudi Arabia and securing a massive IT contract from a wealthy monarch. There, he's assisted in his quest by a beautiful doctor (Sarita Choudhury from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) and a wisecracking taxi driver (first-timer Alexander Black). German filmmaker Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) writes and directs from the novel by Dave Eggers. 97 minutes R.

The Huntsman: Winter's War

This sequel to 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman dumps lead princess Kristen Stewart and replaces her with most of the plot from Disney's Frozen (or Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," if you're a traditionalist). Seems that jealousy-prone queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) and her icy exiled sister Freya (Emily Blunt) are at war. Naturally, Chris Hemsworth's hunky huntsman is caught in the middle. As in the previous outing, the costumes and sets are visually stunning, but the convoluted fairy tale mash-up of a storyline is better suited for ABC's corny "Once Upon a Time." 114 minutes PG-13.

The Invitation

This sinister, slow-burn horror thriller comes to us from director Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Aeon Flux, Jennifer's Body). While attending a dinner party at his former L.A. home, an increasingly paranoid man (Logan Marshall-Green from Prometheus and "Dark Blue") comes to believe his ex-wife and her new husband have sinister intentions for their guests. 100 minutes Unrated.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book

Unlike Disney's recent live-action Cinderella , Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz revamps, this family fantasy sticks pretty close to the original cartoon version. John Favreau (Elf, Iron Man) does an admirable job directing one kid and a whole bunch of CGI animals. Star Neel Sethi is a ball of energy, leaping and tumbling his way from one action sequence to the next. A string of celebrity voices (Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken) take on the familiar characters. The action is a bit intense at times for the littlest of tykes. The decision to include two of the songs from the original Disney cartoon is odd, but doesn't upset the overall balance of the adventurous film. FULL REVIEW: Fancy computer animation brings Kipling classic to life by Devin D. O’Leary (4/21/2016). 105 minutes PG.

Miles Ahead

Don Cheadle (Crash, Iron Man 2) directs and stars in this somewhat rickety look at the life of jazz legend Miles Davis. Riffing, freeform style (it's like jazz, man!), the film wanders around various points in Davis' life. Most of it takes place in the late-'70s as a drug-addled Davis is interviewed by a tenacious reporter (Ewan McGregor). Amid the impressionistic flashbacks, the film morphs into a buddy action caper with the musician and the reporter teaming up to steal back some missing recording tapes. That probably didn't happen. 100 minutes R.

Ben Affleck's estranged wife Jennifer Garner stars in this faith-based "true story" about a little girl with a rare digestive disorder who fell out of a tree and subsequently--according to the book her mother wrote, anyway--went to Heaven and met Jesus. Also, she was cured of her disease. If you paid to see that other "kid meets Jesus" film Heaven Is For Real, the producers of this one want your money as well. 99 minutes PG.

This time around it's her meddling parents (who, it turns out, were never properly married) getting hitched. Ethnic stereotype-based hijinks ensue. 94 minutes PG-13.

Zootopia

Zootopia

A plucky country rabbit (Ginnifer Goodwin) dreams of becoming a tough-as-nails cop in the teeming city of Zootopia. Unfortunately, the place is run by predators, who relegate the barrier-busting bunny to meter maid duty. But when a series of mysterious disappearances rocks the city, she teams with a self-serving con man of a fox (Jason Bateman) to crack the case. This funny animal take on sun-dappled L.A. noir manages to tackle some hot-button issues (racism, sexism) while still being a colorful, entertaining Disney romp. FULL REVIEW: Disney turns an animal utopia on its ear in this savvy, sociological crime caper by Devin D. O’Leary (3/3/2016). 108 minutes PG.
