13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

U.S. military-loving movie dude Michael Bay (Bad Boys, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, Transformers) just goes ahead and makes a recruitment film centering around conservative screeching point Benghazi. James Badge Dale ("Rubicon") and Jon Krasinski ("The Office") leads a bunch of monosyllabically named CIA security contractors (Brit, Oz, Bub, Rone, Boon, Tig) on a mission to rescue the American ambassador during an attack on a US compound in Libya. 155 minutes R.

The 5th Wave

Unable to decide on a single disaster on which to end the world, this teen-lit-inspired sci-fi flick finds a plucky teenage girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) facing down apocalyptic electromagnetic pulses, tidal waves, zombie plagues and alien invasions. Naturally, since this is aimed at today's young adults, our heroine must not only save the Earth but decide between two cute boys (Nick Robinson, Alex Roe). Don't hold your breath for a sequel. 112 minutes PG-13.

The Big Short

Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Marisa Tomei, Karen Gillan and Melissa Leo star in this cynical comedy-drama about four outsiders in the world of high-finance who predicted the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s and set out to expose the greed and shortsightedness of the big banks. Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights) writes and directs, based on the nonfiction book by Michael Lewis. 130 minutes R.

The Boy

In this eerie horror thriller, an American nanny (Lauren Cohan--Maggie from "The Walking Dead") is hired to look after an English family's unusual child. Instead of flesh-and-blood offspring, she finds a life-sized doll, fashioned to look like the couple's long-dead son. Nonetheless, the care of this inanimate child comes with a long list of "rules" that must not be violated or else ... well, as you can probably guess, bad things will happen. 97 minutes PG-13.

Creed

Sylvester Stallone (who neither directs nor writes this film) takes a clever turn in this seventh Rocky movie by mostly staying out of the center ring. Written and directed by the man who gave us the gritty Fruitvale Station, this sporting drama focuses on the troubled son of late boxer Apollo Creed, who turns to Creed's old frenemy, former Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa, to serve as his trainer and mentor. Michael B. Jordan, last seen (or not) in Fantastic Four, is our young boxer-to-be. 132 minutes PG-13.

Daddy's Home

Will Ferrell is a mild-mannered radio executive trying his best to connect with his two stepchildren. The task becomes harder when the kids' kick-ass biological father (Mark Wahlberg) comes home for a visit. If you loved Ferrell and Wahlberg in The Other Guys ... then your taste is questionable. 96 minutes PG-13.

Dirty Grandpa

Robert De Niro goes the way of various bad Santas, bad teachers, bad neighbors and the like as a perverted senior citizen who tricks his uptight grandson (Zac Efron) into going to Florida for spring break. From the maker of Borat, Brüno and The Dictator--which should tell you what you're in for. 102 minutes R.

The Finest Hours

This sentimental but occasionally stirring disaster drama takes us to the high seas where, in 1952, the U.S. Coast Guard struggled to save an oil tanker foundering off the coast of Cape Cod. Chris Pine--in square-jawed, whitebread, Captain America mode--stars as the heroic mariner torn between a hand-wringing fiancée (Holiday Granger) and the men he needs to rescue. There are a few thrills to be had, but--special effects aside--the film reads like a 1950s studio melodrama. 119 minutes PG-13.

Samuel Jackson & Kurt Russell

The Hateful Eight

Quentin Tarantio constructs a chatty, claustrophobic mystery smack dab in the middle of a violent spaghetti Western. In it, a bounty hunter (Kurt Russell) is trapped with a prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) in a remote stagecoach stop in the middle of the Wyoming Wilderness by a raging blizzard. The only question is who of his fellow strandees (Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern and Michael Madsen among them) are fellow bounty hunters hoping to steal his prisoner and how many of them are the lady's compatriots trying to free her? This crazed, funny, vulgar, bloody mashup is like Stagecoach crossed with The Thing, written by Agatha Christie and directed by Sergio Leone. FULL REVIEW: Tarantino’s new Western is more than a little cold around the heart by Devin D. O’Leary (12/24/2015). 168 minutes R.

Joy

Writer-director David O. Russell rejoins a lot of his cast from Silver Linings Playbook for this chaotic comedy-drama about the life of real-life inventor and entrepreneur Joy Mangano, who created the Miracle Mop. The film--featuring the wonderful Jennifer Lawrence in the title role--is mostly an oddball American success story about the ins and outs of running a family business. Like all of Russell's films, the tone is off-kilter throughout. 124 minutes PG-13.

There's a surprising amount of life and laughter left in this lovable series. Jack Black is back as the roly-poly panda with the mad martial arts skills. This time around he's stuck between his adoptive father (James Hong as a gruff but loving goose) and his biological dad (Bryan Cranston, in fuzzy panda mode). Can he figure out who he is in time to defeat an evil yak turning kung fu masters into stone-faced slaves?

The Revenant

After a brief flirtation with humor in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu returns to the painfully grim style of his early films (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel, Biutiful). Leonardo DiCaprio plays a frontiersman leading a fur-trapping expedition in 1820 who is abandoned and betrayed by the men who hired him. What follows is an extremely brutal tale of survival and (ultimately) revenge. It's extravagantly visual and hard to look away from--but rather punishing. 156 minutes R.

Room

Room

A young mother (Brie Larson, last seen in Trainwreck) and her 5-year-old son live in a 10-by-10-foot room, completely cut off from the outside word. Mom attempts to raise young Jack (incredible newcomer Jacob Tremblay) in the best way she can. But when things begin to change in Room, she concocts a plan for Jack to escape. What follows is a fascinating existential drama in which Jack's perception of the universe is suddenly and violently expanded beyond the four tiny walls he's known for his entire life. Director Lenny Abrahamson (who gave us the wonderfully weird musical drama Frank) infuses this claustrophobic drama about growth and change with a palpable tension. He's helped immensely by his two stars, who share a thoroughly believable mother-and-son chemistry. FULL REVIEW: Claustrophobic, mother-and-son drama traps the world between four walls by Devin D. O’Leary (11/19/2015). 118 minutes R.

Sisters

"SNL" pals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for this rude 'n' crude comedy about two sisters who decide to throw one last, raging house party before their parents sell off their childhood home. Raucous and outrageous as it is at times, there's still a humane and heartfelt undercurrent to the story about growing up and moving on. 118 minutes R.

Spotlight

Actor/director Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor) writes and directs this serious, sweeping true story about how Boston Globe reporters uncovered a massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese. This journalistic procedural lays as much blame on the media as the churches. The big cast (Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, Stanley Tucci) is in rare form, and the muckraking script is gripping (if a bit prosaic). 128 minutes R.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

It's been 30 years since the Empire was crushed in Return of the Jedi. But something evil has risen from the ashes, forcing a new generation of heroes (John Boyega and Daisy Ridley among them) to team up with legendary freedom fighters Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia (Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, returning for another go-around). J.J. Abrams ( "Lost," Star Trek Into Darkness) directs this first new Star Wars film in 10 years. It's littered (both literally and figuratively) with references to the original film. By mirroring the Star Wars: Episode IV--A New Hope story almost beat-for-beat, the film lacks a level of narrative surprise. But it's smartly nostalgic and a hell of a lot of fun to watch--which is something Episodes I, II and III completely forgot. 140 minutes PG-13.
