American Sniper

Reliable but rarely more than workmanlike director Clint Eastwood helms this biopic based on the biography of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. Bradley Cooper is excellent, running through all the emotions of our main character as he goes from front-line shellshocked to home-front rehabilitated. But Eastwood waffles too much between gung-ho patriotism and a more reasoned examination of the horrors our modern military men and women are asked to endure. It wants to tackle some big moral issues, but unlike Eastwood's Unforgiven, it can't break the Hollywood formula long enough to find the metaphorical weight behind the story. 132 minutes R.

Cinderella

Kenneth Branagh (Henry V, Thor) directs this straight-faced, unironic live-action adaptation of Disney's 1950 animated gem. It looks gorgeous from top to bottom, and Lily James (from "Downton Abbey") seems perfectly appropriate as the ball-going protagonist. But this version adds nothing whatsoever new to the old story. For Disney princess completists only. 113 minutes PG.

Danny Collins

Al Pacino stars as an aging musician who has transitioned from Bob Dylan integrity to kitschy, burned-out pop star. When his manager (Christopher Plummer) stumbles across a long-lost, 40-year-old piece of fan mail from John Lennon himself, our hero decides it's time for some late-in-life redemption. He sets off on a cross-country road trip to reunite with the adult son (Bobby Cannavale) he fathered with a groupie, then holes up in suburban New Jersey hoping his songwriting muse will return. Pacino takes this assignment seriously, but writer-director Dan Fogelman (Cars, Bolt, Tangled) veers toward the sitcomish. 106 minutes R.

Do You Believe?

From the creators of God's Not Dead comes some more preaching to the choir. Like a Jesus-based version of Crash, this film consists of a bunch of random, seemingly unconnected characters (a pastor, a pregnant teenage girl, a nurse, a paramedic, an ex-soldier, a homeless mother, a suicidal young man, a lawyer), all of whose lives are "interconnected by the hand of God." Ted McGinley ("Married with Children"), Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring), Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite), Delroy Lindo (Get Shorty), Lee Majors ("The Six Million Dollar Man"), Brian Bosworth (former NFL linebacker and star of Stone Cold) and Cybill Shepherd (The Last Picture Show) are among the odd cast. 115 minutes PG-13.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Every couple of years, the publishing industry spits out an erotic novel to remind housewives that naughty sex is a good thing. From Fanny Hill to Story of O to Fear of Flying to Exit to Eden, these books have been snapped up and hidden in bedside tables for decades. Today, we've got E.L. James' smash hit novel Fifty Shades of Grey. This ripe bit of "mommy porn" started out life as a piece of Twilight fan fic written under the pen name "Snowqueen's Icedragon." The author changed the character names, got a better nom de plume, and the rest is history. The movie may be slightly more literate, but it's sadistically boring. Nothing happens. At some point nothing stops happening and the credits roll. 125 minutes R.

Furious 7

The automotive insult to gravity and various related forms of physics continues, despite the untimely death of star Paul Walker. Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Ludacris pick up the slack, shooting and/or crashing cars into countless people, places and things. Seems Evil British Guy (Jason Statham) is going after car thief/invincible superhero Dominic Toretto and crew for killing his brother, Evil British Guy From The Last Movie (Luke Evans). 137 minutes PG-13.

Furious 7: An IMAX Experience

Get Hard

Will Ferrell and the clearly overworked Kevin Hart (six films last year and two so far in 2015) star in this racial comedy. Ferrell is millionaire James King, busted for fraud and bound for San Quentin. On the run from police, James ends up in the South Central LA home of family man Darnell Lewis (Hart). Mistaking him for a street thug (because, you know, racial humor), James offers to pay the man to school him in the art of being a gangsta--so he can survive in prison. Needless to say, this mismatched buddy comedy doesn't try very hard. 100 minutes R.

Home

DreamWorks Animation mashes together E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Lilo & Stitch in the hopes that wayward alien mascot Oh (voiced by Jim Parsons from "The Big Bang Theory") will become the next toy/video game/t-shirt-generating machine. It's safe to say he won't. The story, about a misfit alien who befriends a lonely Earth girl (Rihanna), feels awfully recycled. If you're an adult who doesn't find Parsons' voice grating, you might survive a screening with your kids. 94 minutes PG.

Insurgent

The popular young adult book series about a dystopian future in which mean old adults won't let rebellious teens grow up to be whatever they want returns with the second outing in the trilogy (which will, inevitably, turn into four films). Shailene Woodley is back as troublemaking "divergent" Tris, who's obliged to run and fight and take a bunch of tests (no, really) in this predictably rote sequel. 119 minutes PG-13.

It Follows

In this innovative, flashback-'80s-style horror flick, teenagers who have sex are hunted down by a nameless, faceless and completely unstoppable monster. The only way to fend it off? Pass the curse on to some other poor victim by ... you know, sleeping with them. It sounds outlandish, but writer-director David Robert Mitchell (The Myth of the American Sleepover) has crafted one of the purest, scariest horror films in years with this one. 100 minutes R.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class) directs this fast, funny, impossibly kinetic action flick based on the comic book by Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Wanted). Newcomer Taron Egerton stars as a trendy British street kid who gets recruited to a top-secret spy agency that's, like, James Bond cranked up to 11. Colin Firth is the young spy's perfectly aloof bad-ass of a trainer. Samuel L. Jackson is the high-tech baddie. 129 minutes R.

The Longest Ride

Clint Eastwood's studly son Scott Eastwood stars in this extremely Nicholas Sparks-esque adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Eastwood is a rodeo rider sidelined by injury who falls for a sweet, artsy college girl (Britt Robertson from "Under the Dome"). At some point they rescue an old man (Alan Alda) from an auto accident. The sweet, artsy college girl helps the old dude recover in the hospital by reading a bunch of his love letters from the 1940s. So, yup, we get a flashback-filled B-story in which young Alan Alda (Jack Huston) romances Oona Chaplin (jeez, everybody here is descended someone famous) in picturesque North Carolina. There's a lot of flannel and lakes and romantic picnics. 139 minutes PG-13.

McFarland, USA

This Disney-produced "based on the inspirational true story" sports flick is pure formula. But it's a formula that works. Kevin Costner is a high school coach exiled to a dirtwater farming community in California. There, he creates a winning cross country running team with some of the ragtag local migrant worker kids. It's all very familiar, but director Niki Caro (Whale Rider) shows considerable sympathy to the impoverished farm workers depicted here. 129 minutes PG.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel gave audiences the exact dose of twee elderly romance, exotic locals and faintly inuendo-filled comedy they were looking for. So everybody from director (Shakespeare in Love's John Madden) to cast (Dev Patel, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy) have returned for more of the same. Seems the now successful retirement hotel in Jaipur, India, has only one vacancy left, prompting newcomers (including Richard Gere) to fight for space. 122 minutes PG.

Woman in Gold

British treasure Helen Mirren stars as Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee who takes on the Austrian government to recover a Gustav Klimt masterpiece stolen by the Nazis during World War II. It's based on a true story. Unfortunately, it's a mostly speech-heavy courtroom drama. And what the hell is Ryan Reynolds (Van Wilder, Green Lantern) doing here playing a Jewish lawyer? 109 minutes PG-13.
