STILL PLAYING^ back to top


Always Shine

In this feminist psychological thriller, two actress friends (Mackenzie Davis from "Halt and Catch Fire" and Caitlin FitzGerald from "Masters of Sex") leave LA for a peaceful weekend getaway in Big Sur. Once they're alone, however, their long-suppressed jealousies and deep-seated resentments bubble to the surface. What follows is a tense two-hander in which relationships are torn apart and identities are called into question. 85 minutes Unrated.
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 6:30

Assassin's Creed

The popular video game series gets a cinematic adaptation with Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) as a dude who uses some fantastic technology to time travel (more or less) back along his ancestor's "genetic memories" and finds himself jumping off rooftops and stabbing people in the back as an assassin in 15th century Spain. This gives him the knowledge and skills to battle the still-active--and still-evil--Templar organization in present day. 108 minutes PG-13.

Fences

Denzel Washington directs and stars in this rich, performance-driven adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer- and Tony-winning play. Washington headlines as a former baseball player trying to raise his family while struggling with race relations in 1950s Pittsburgh. Viola Davis plays his wife, matching Washington's engrossing performance, beat for beat. 138 minutes PG-13.

Hidden Figures

This important historical drama is based on the true story of the Human Calculators, a team of African-American women who worked for NASA, providing crucial mathematical data in the early, pre-computer days of the American space program. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe star alongside Kevin Costner and Kirsten Dunst. It's a formulaic, feel-good tribute to unsung heroes, but it delivers its predetermined beats with humor and sympathy. 127 minutes PG.

Jackie

Jackie

Natalie Portman puts a great deal of effort into her mannered portrayal of Jackie Kennedy in this tight biopic, which looks in on the First Lady in the immediate aftermath of her husband's assassination. The story jumps around a lot in time and place, but that keeps it from becoming your standard-issue historical drama. Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín (Tony Manero, No, The Club) captures a tantalizing intellectual moment when, in the midst of tragedy, Jackie created the myth of Camelot. Expect Oscar nods. FULL REVIEW: Camelot is born in media-savvy biopic about JFK’s grieving widow by Devin D. O’Leary (12/22/2016). 100 minutes R.
Rio Rancho Premiere Cinema Fri-Thu 11:05am, 1:50, 4:35, 7:20, 10:05

Khaidi No. 150

Indian matinee idol Chiranjeevi stars in his 150th film (more or less). This action drama is a remake of the 2014 Tamil film Kaththi, about a petty criminal who helps cops hunt down an escaped prisoner. Lots and lots and lots (and lots) of crazy stuff happens after that. Honestly, I couldn't begin to explain it all. In Telugu with English subtitles. Unrated.

La La Land

La La Land

From director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) comes this unabashedly, unironically antiquated, Busby Berkeley-style song-and-dance musical. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling star as a wannabe actress and an unsuccessful jazz musician dreaming of stardom in cynical, modern-day Hollywood. Amid their will-they-or-won't-they romance, our two main characters engage in a string of lovingly assembled musical numbers on the streets of LA. The luminous, Technicolor Era cinematography is gorgeous and the mood is infectious. But the story seems like small potatoes. La La Land will win a lot of fans for its sheer nostalgic novelty, but it just doesn't stack up to the classic MGM musicals it so slavishly references. FULL REVIEW: Modern-day musical should garner fans despite flaws by Devin D. O’Leary (12/15/2016). 128 minutes PG-13.

Manchester by the Sea

Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and Kyle Chandler star in this fantastically moving family drama for Academy Award-nominated writer/director Kenneth Lonergan (Gangs of New York, You Can Count on Me). Affleck stars as a glum, hardworking Boston handyman who gets word that his beloved older brother has passed away. He heads back to his hometown for the funeral, where he's suddenly confronted with the information that he's now the guardian of his brother's moody and perpetually horny teenage son. Haunted by the memory of everything that brought him to his current sad sack state of affairs, our protagonist tries his best to deal with his fractured family's lingering grief. 137 minutes R.

Moana

Moana

Dwayne Johnson and Auli'i Cravalho provide the voices for this Polynesian fantasy story which comes to us courtesy of the animators at Disney. The titular Moana is a headstrong young girl who uses her navigational skills to set sail for a fabled island with the help of a legendary (if somewhat past his prime) demigod named Maui. This charming, fun musical cartoon harkens back to the glory days of The Little Mermaid. FULL REVIEW: Disney sets sail in the South Seas with a mythical new toon by Devin D. O’Leary (12/1/2016). 113 minutes PG.

A Monster Calls

Spaniard J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible) delivers this moody, emotional fantasy-drama about a young boy (Lewis MacDougall, Pan) who confronts his single mom's terminal illness with the help of a kindly tree monster (voiced by Liam Neeson). It looks, at times, like a horror movie--but this heart-tugging fairy tale leavens its dark storyline with a sincere, sentimental honesty. Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver and Toby Kebbell round out the fine cast. 108 minutes PG-13.

Moonlight

Moonlight

Like an inner city version of Boyhood, this engrossing indie drama drifts through the life of a confused Miami kid. By covering three separate sections of his life (and using three different actors), the film shows us how young Chiron comes of age while coming to grips with his sexuality. Though it is sounds rather specific to the gay and African-American experience in America, this slow, patient tone poem vividly expresses what it's like to struggle with who and what you are--no matter what your background happens to be. FULL REVIEW: Somber, poetic look at inner-city manhood ponders multiple questions of identity by Devin D. O’Leary (11/10/2016). 110 minutes R.

Old Stone

In this tight debut thriller from Chinese/Canadian filmmaker Johnny Ma, a Chinese taxi driver (Chen Gang) finds himself plunged into a Kafkaesque nightmare when a simple road accident kicks off an increasingly dangerous chain of events. After selflessly ferrying an injured bicycle driver to the hospital after police and ambulances fail to show, our protagonist finds himself liable for the man's spiraling medical bills. Pushed to the edge by a broken economy and bureaucratic indifference, our taxi driver fights to save his cab, his job and his family. In Mandarin with English subtitles. 80 minutes Unrated.
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 4:30, 8:30

One Piece Film: Gold

The popular Japanese anime series comes to America with a brand-new feature-length story. For this big-screen adventure, the Straw Hat Pirates (including rubber-limbed kid Luffy) are taking on Gild Tesoro, the ruler of the richest country in the world. 120 minutes PG-13.

Passengers

Two passengers on an interstellar ship carrying people to a distant planet for colonization find themselves unexpectedly awakened from suspended animation--90 years too early. Can they figure out what is causing the malfunction, and can they fix it in time? Also, is it possible they can fall in love with one another amid the crisis? Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence star in this sci-fi mystery/romance that squanders a rich setting by more-or-less refusing to deal with the questionable moral twist at the center of it all. 116 minutes PG-13.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Lucky (and talented) bastard Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) gets to direct this prequel to the original Star Wars: Episode IV--A New Hope. Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) stars as a particularly rebellious rebel tasked with helping a ragtag squad of freedom fighters liberate the plans to the Death Star--thereby setting up the plot mechanics of the original 1977 film. Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker and Jimmy Smits (Bail Organa in the house!) round out the cast. 133 minutes PG-13.

Sing

The French animation company behind the Despicable Me films offers up this tune-filled toon. When a fast-talking, showbiz-loving koala finds his once-glorious theater threatened with foreclosure, he comes up with the idea of hosting an amateur singing competition. Although "American Idol" would seem like slight inspiration for a family film, the script conjures up quite a bit of sympathy for its anthropomorphic pigs, hedgehogs, gorillas and mice. Amid the comedy hijinks and the rather impressive songs, we get a lot of compelling backstory, telling us what brings each of these animalistic contestants to this particular grab at glory. Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson and Taron Egerton are among the cast. 108 minutes PG.

Underworld: Blood Wars

The fifth film in the interminable Underworld series (sixth if you count the direct-to-video animated short "Underworld: Endless War") comes to theaters in all its blue-steel-colored, wet-look-leather-wearing glory. Kate Beckinsale is back as vampiric Death Dealer Selene, waging her eternal war against the evil Lycan clan and the ... equally evil Vampire clan? Honestly, not too sure about who the good guys are supposed to be are anymore. Not to worry: there are still plenty of vampires and werewolves fighting each other with machine guns. 91 minutes R.

Why Him?

Jonah Hill helped out on the story for this foul-mouthed comedy starring his pal James Franco. Franco plays an internet billionaire who's about to pop the question to his girlfriend over the holidays. Unfortunately, her dad (Bryan Cranston) takes an instant dislike to the crass, inappropriate man-boy, setting off a war between the menfolk. 111 minutes R.
