Elf

Will Ferrell scored a perennial favorite with this seaonal comedy about a human adopted by Santa's elves who is sent to America to search for his biological roots. Occasionally absurd and often a bit too Hollywood sweet, the film is kept afloat by Ferrell's energetic performance. 95 minutes PG. (Sunday 11/26)

Fate/Stay Night [Heaven's Feel]

This animated film out of Japan is based on the popular video game/"visual novel" series. Set 10 years after the Holy Grail War—an epic battle-to-the-death tournament involving superpowered "Masters" and mystical "Servants" to control the wish-granting container—this modern-day fantasy finds a new war breaking out. While Fuyuki City descends into chaos, Saber Master Shirou Emiya tries to protect an abused young girl from the ever-widening death and destruction. In Japanese with English subtitles. 120 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 11/24)

Home Alone

Yeah, Macaulay Culkin was cute once. In this childhood fave from 1990, he gets left behind over the Christmas holidays by his horribly negligent parents and must fight off a couple of bumbling burglars with cartoony violence. In real life this story would be way less funny. 103 minutes PG. (Opens Sunday 11/26)

Howl's Moving Castle

Hayao Miyazaki adapts Diana Wynne Jones' young adult novel for this 2004 animated masterpiece. This fabulous fairy tale concerns a young girl, cursed to live as an old woman, who takes up residence in the titular dwelling of a handsome wizard in hopes of finding a cure. The story, mixing fantasy and technology, is more intuitive than logical; but fans (both young and old) of otherworldly drama will be duly impressed. Screened in both English-dubbed and English-subtitled versions 119 minutes PG. (Sunday 11/25)

Human Flow

Internationally renowned architect Ai Weiwei directs this epic, bluntly journalistic documentary about today's global refugee crisis. Though it's firmly rooted in today's heavily xenophobic political climate, its stories of marginalized people being forcefully shifted back and forth across borders (Syria, Kenya, Burma, Turkey, Pakistan, etc.) are as timeless as they are heartbreaking. 140 minutes PG-13. (Opens Wednesday 11/29)

Lady Bird

Writer/actress Greta Gerwig (Greenberg, Mistress America, Francis Ha) turns director for this witty, well-observed coming-of-age drama. Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, Brooklyn) stars a Northern California girl stuck in Catholic school and applying to a bunch of East Coast colleges in hopes of escaping her overbearing, hypercritical mother (Laurie Metcalf, employing her sitcom skills to great effect). 93 minutes R. (Opens Wednesday 11/22)

Last Flag Flying

Richard Linklater (Slacker, Dazed and Confused, Before Sunset, Boyhood) seems like an odd man to write and direct this eligiac, post-military dramedy (based on the novel by Darryl Ponicsan). Steve Carell is a meek, former Navy man who hooks up with two old buddies from Vietnam (Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne) after his son is killed in the first Gulf War. He wants help burying the kid, but the road trip leads down some odd side roads. There's not a lot to this talk-and-drive, but the humor and chemistry among the leads is infectious. Cranston (a loudmouthed bar owner) and Laurence (a reformed-sinner-turned-reverend) function as the devil and angel on our mourning father's shoulders. Amid the humorous escapades, there's a serious story about what our government asks young men to do, and what it tells parents about their service. 125 minutes R. (Opens Wednesday 11/22)

The Man Who Invented Christmas

Dan Stevens (from "Downton Abbey," The Guest, Beauty and the Beast, "Legion," Marshall and growing overexposure) stars as Charles Dickens. The film relates the "real life" inspirations that caused him to write A Christmas Carol. It's a nice, well-dressed Victorian-era biopic but doesn't really express the lasting historical impact Dickens had on the Christmas holiday. 104 minutes PG. (Opens Wednesday 11/22)

Neither Wolf Nor Dog

Neither Wolf Nor Dog

Based on the nonfiction novel by Kent Nerburn, this tiny indie follows writer Kent Nerburn (Christopher Sweeney) to a Lakota reservation in South Dakota to interview a smiling but inscrutable Native American elder named Dan (Chief Dave Bald Eagle). Dan wants Nerburn to turn his collection of wise ramblings into a book, but the white guy has got a long way to go in order to understand where our 95-year-old Indian is coming from. What follows is a slow and rather simple road trip through modern Indian country. But director Steven Lewis Simpson (A Thunder-Being Nation, Rez Bomb) knows the settings, and our two main characters have a witty back-and-forth—which keeps this talky history lesson from becoming too depressing. FULL REVIEW: Roadtrip through Lakota country is slow but sincere in its message by Devin D. O’Leary (9/7/2017). 110 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 11/26)
Guild Cinema

Novitiate

In the early '60s, during the era of the Second Vatican Council, a young woman enters her training to become a nun. While the Catholic Church struggles to adapt to the modern world, our protagonist grapples with issues of faith, the changing church and sexuality. There's a lot of coming-of-age drama and a touch of lesbian sex (enough to tick off the Catholic Legion of Decency), but the mix of introspective drama and religious history never quite gels. On a side note: Melissa Leo (Frozen River, The Fighter) makes for one scary Mother Superior. 123 minutes R. (Opens Friday 11/24)
High Ridge

The Polar Express

Chris Van Allsburg's gorgeous, award-winning children's book comes to life in a computer-animated fantasy directed by Robert Zemeckis (Cast Away, Forrest Gump, Back to the Future). The simple story has a skeptical kid boarding a magical train to the North Pole and meeting Santa Claus. The "photo-realistic" CGI was faintly impressive from a technical perspective back in 2004, but is still flat-out creepy to watch. 100 minutes G. (Saturday 11/25)

Roman J. Israel, Esq.

Dan Gilroy follows up his lacerating debut Nightcrawler with this noble, but rather familiar legal drama. Denzel Washington stars as an idealistic (possibly autistic) social justice lawyer trying to keep alive the ideas of 1970s activism (not to mention '70s wardrobe). When his longtime partner suffers a heart attack, our titular protagonist is caught between going to work for a slick corporate law firm and sticking with his ideals. The film is more of a character study than a legal thriller, causing the story to come out in bits and pieces. 129 minutes PG-13. (Opens Tuesday 11/21)

Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World

This hard-rockin' documentary digs into the role that Native Americans have played in contemporary musical history. Starting with guitar wrangler Fred Lincoln "Link" Wray, the film heads through decades of influencers like Robbie Robertson of The Band, Stevie Salas (who recorded and toured with Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger) and singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie. Among the interview subjects are Iggy Pop, Buddy Guy, Stevie Van Zandt, Taj Mahal, Steve Tyler, George Clinton and Jackson Browne. 103 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 11/26)

The Smudging

Oakland born and raised Native American writer/actor Mike J. Marin makes his directorial debut with this ultra-low-budget horror flick. Story follows five paranormal researchers investigating supernatural doings at the Chicago Native American Cultural Center. This was nominated for "Best Feature" at LA's renowned RIP Horror Fest. Some of the cast and crew will be on hand for a post-film Q&A. 95 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 11/25)

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Martin McDonagh (who gave us the fine In Bruges) writes and directs this brilliant, bitter crime dramedy. Frances McDormand guarantees herself an Oscar nomination as Mildred, a permanently angry divorcée whose teenage daughter was raped and murdered. With no progress on the case in the last seven months, mom purchases three billboards castigating the popular local police chief (Woody Harrelson) for his inaction. This sets off a chain of ugly repercussions in their tiny community. There are bursts of fine character-based humor (particularly from Sam Rockwell as a dimwitted police officer), but the overarching tone is one of ordinary, well-meaning people trying to do the right thing but ending up doing the exact wrong thing. 115 minutes R.

A Bad Moms Christmas

Back in 2016 Bad Moms became a runaway raunchy hit, grossing more than $100 million on a tiny $20 million budget. So here's the sequel. Overworked, under-appreciated Mila Kunis, Katheryn Hahn and Kristen Bell are back. The joke this time around is that their overbearing mothers (Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski and Cheryl Hines) are visiting for the holidays. Sure, it's a standard sitcom setup. But at least there's "crude sexual content and language throughout." R.

Blade Runner 2049

Some 35 years after Ridley Scott's Philip K. Dick adaptation hit theaters on its way to becoming a cult classic, the official sequel gets underway. This time around a young LAPD replicant hunter (Ryan Gosling) gets caught in a cover-up when he discovers a long-buried secret involving legendary blade runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for more than three decades. Hampton Fancher, who penned the original, contributes the screenplay. Denis Villeneuve (who gave us last year's spectacular Arrival) takes over for Scott in the director's chair. This gorgeous sci-fi rumination is long, slow and very moody—but it dovetails perfectly with the original. 163 minutes R.

Coco

Pixar turns to Mexican culture and Day of the Dead for this animated feature about an aspiring young musician who confronts his family's ancestral ban on music by entering the Land of the Dead to work out the mystery. Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Alfonso Arau, Edward James Olmos and Gabriel Iglesias are among the voice talent. PG.

Employing the same lazy sequel plot as A Bad Mom's Christmas, this follow-up to the 2015 Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg mild smirkfest finds wimpy stepfather Will Ferrell and macho biological dad Mark Wahlberg (now getting along just fine) visited by their own intrusive dads.

The Florida Project

Over the course of a single summer, an imaginative, rambuctious 6-year-old girl named Moonee (tiny star Brooklynn Prince) gets in and out of trouble while living in a cheap motel in the shadow of Disneyland. While her tattoo-sporting single mom (Bria Vinaite) struggles to escape from grinding poverty, little Moonee spends time with the motel's kind-hearted manager (Willem Dafoe) and a ragtag collection of latchkey kids. There's not a lot, storywise, to this minimalist indie. But it's got heart and moxie and comes to us from writer-director Sean Baker, whose last film (Tangerine) was shot entirely on an iPhone. 111 minutes R.

Happy Death Day

This cheap but clever horror flick from Christopher Landon (Scout's Guide to the Apocalypse, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) mixes the 1981 slasher Happy Birthday to Me with the 1993 fantasy Groundhog Day. Seems a young college student (Jessica Rothe from "Mary + Jane") spends her birthday being brutally murdered—only to wake up that morning and repeat the whole thing. If only she could puzzle out the identity of her killer, she might be able to stop it from happening over and over again. 96 minutes PG-13.
AMC Albuquerque 12

Jigsaw

You can argue all you want over whom the most indestructible movie boogieman is: Jason Voorhees or Freddy Krueger or Michael Myers. Just keep in mind that John Kramer (a.k.a. Jigsaw) croaked three films into his eponymous slasher series. And yet he's managed to rack up an impressive postmortem kill count in four additional films. Now there's a fifth. It's been 10 years since Jigsaw died, and police are looking into a killer using suspiciously similar Rube Goldberg-esque contraptions to murder people. 91 minutes R.

Justice League

Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg (and maybe a certain big blue Boy Scout) join forces to fight off an apocalyptic alien invasion. It's another incremental improvement in the DC/Warner Bros. brand, but it's punishingly frenetic, the CGI is on overload and everybody looks like an overdesigned basketball shoe. (This last one is particularly annoying in the wake of Thor: Raganrok, which embraced the hell out of legendary artist Jack Kirby's visual style. Justice League borrows a lot of Kirby characters and storylines, but none of his trademark look.) 121 minutes PG-13.

The former TV Hercules stars as an atheist who goes through a near-death experience in an auto accident and converts to Christianity. Like ya do. 101 minutes PG-13.

Loving Vincent

Every single frame of this animated biopic was hand-painted in oil. The story concerns a young man who comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist's final letter and ends up investigating the artist's last days. Did van Gogh commit suicide or was he murdered? Needless to say, the painstaking work of the filmmakers is gorgeous to behold. The mystery angle is a bit gimmicky, but the visuals do a stunning job of expressing the artist's life though his work. 94 minutes PG-13.

Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards

Self-proclaimed "cobbler" (and the best-known shoe maker of the 20th and 21st century) Manolo Blahnik is profiled in this up-close-and-personal documentary. The designers memories paint a vivid picture of modern fashion history, but it's the parade of bizarrely inspired footwear that's the star of this show. 89 minutes Unrated.

Murder On the Orient Express

Kenneth Branagh directs this classy, rather traditional take on Agatha Christie's oft-filmed murder mystery. Most of the whodunit fun is in watching the crowded A-list cast—which includes Penélope Cruz, Josh Gad, Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Derek Jacobi, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench and Willem Dafoe. 114 minutes PG-13.

My Friend Dahmer

Weirdly sensitive and sympathetic, this biopic heads back to '70s suburbia to look in on a high school-aged, pre-serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer (played here by Teen Choice fave Ross Lynch of Teen Beach Movie and "Austin & Ally"). Believe it or not, this is based on the true-life graphic novel by John Backderf, who was actually a classmate of Dahmer. The idea is that Dahmer was once something close to human—which doesn't lessen the severity of his crimes, but does add a layer of sick fascination to the story. 107 minutes R.

Only the Brave

Based on the true, tragic story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, this tough-as-nails tearjerker looks into the lives and motivations of a group of wildfire fighters in rural Arizona. Josh Brolin headlines as the stoic leader of the crew. Miles Teller is the wet-behind-the-ears newbie. This one follows the formula right down to the black-and-white photos of the real people during the closing credits—but it builds to a tense, emotional climax. FULL REVIEW: Hotshots fight fire with fire in true-life tragedy by Devin D. O’Leary (10/19/2017). 133 minutes PG-13.

The Square

This off-kilter, cringe-inducing satirical drama (from the director of Swedish think piece Force Majeure) finds the progressive curator (Claes Bang) of a contemporary art museum trying to put together an installation art exhibit which invites passersby to altruism. Thanks to growing problems in his personal life and an overblown response to the new exhibit's ad campaign, our protagonist finds himself spiraling into an outrageous existential crisis. Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West costar. In Swedish and Danish with English subtitles. 142 minutes R.

Stephen Yuen, Kristin Chenoweth, Tracey Morgan, Keegan-Michael Key, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Gabriel Iglesias and Mariah Carey are among the eclectic voice cast. 86 minutes PG.

Suburbicon

Having directed such credible efforts as Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and Good Night, and Good Luck.) George Clooney helms this pitch-black crime comedy from writers Joel and Ethan Coen (Raising Arizona, Fargo, The Big Lebowski). Set in hyper art-directed 1950s suburbia, the film explores the aftermath of a deadly home invasion. Matt Damon and Julianne Moore play the front-and-center married couple whose relationship leans more toward Double Indemnity than "Father Knows Best." Clooney isn't the Coen Bros. and can't quite balance the nasty violence with the deadpan satire, but the kid's got moxie all right. 104 minutes R.

In the autumn of her years, Queen Victoria strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young Indian clerk named Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal from Furious 7).

Tom Cruise, still working that winking charisma, stars in this "inspired by a true story" action-comedy about a fundamentally decent airline pilot and family man who goes to work for the CIA during the 1980s as a South American drug runner.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

With Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel/Disney proved it could make a wildly entertaining crowdpleaser out of their most obscure properties. With this animated follow-up to The LEGO Batman Movie, LEGO/Warner Bros. does exactly the same thing. This toy-based feature is much funnier and more inventive than you're thinking. Dave Franco voices Lloyd, a haplessly unpopular high schooler—mostly because his absentee father is Lord Garmadon (Justin Theroux, obviously having a ball), a monstrous warlord who spends every single day trying to conquer and/or destroy peaceful Ninjago City. Luckily, Lloyd is a member of a "Power Rangers"-esque team of superpowered teens who defend the city with their giant robots. But can Lloyd find the strength to defeat his own dad? 101 minutes PG.
