20,000 Days on Earth

Cult fave writer and musician Nick Cave marks his 20,000 day on planet Earth by starring in this intimate documentary (for lack of a better word), chronicling a typical 24-hour period in the Australian-born artist's life. He drives around, stops in on friends, cooks dinner, gets psychoanalyzed and sings the occasional song even. Casual, eclectic and "staged" without being "stagey," this unusual portrait of an artist is a must for Cave fanatics. 97 minutes Unrated. (Opens Tuesday 12/16)

Antarctica: A Year on Ice

What's it like to live in Antarctica for a full year? Well, it's cold, for one. But his adventure documentary goes into a bit more detail by concentrating on the highs and lows of the several thousand brave souls who volunteer to work at research stations across the frozen continent. The film is the work of Anthony Powell, who served as a communications director at the McMurdo Station for more than a decade. In his spare time he interviewed coworkers and took digital photographs of the icy environment that he then painstakingly assembled into awe-inspiring, time-lapse footage. Yes, the nature shots are gorgeous, but it's the glimpses into everyday life that will stick with you. 92 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 12/12)

The Babadook

From Australia comes this gripping psychological horror thriller. Worn-out single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) is doing her best to raise her troubled young son Samuel (Noah Wiseman). One day the kid finds an unusual bedtime storybook about a monstrous intruder named the Babadook. Before long Samuel's imagination goes into overdrive, and he's convinced this literary boogeyman is coming for him. As dark coincidences begin to pile up around the house, mom starts to believe as well. The frights are powerful, but writer-director Jennifer Kent puts real-life emotions ahead of seat-grabbing scares. 93 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 12/14)

Dumb and Dumber

The Farrelly brothers broke out big-time with this 1994 comedy of monumentally stupid proportions. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are a couple of goodhearted but incredibly moronic pals who travel cross country to locate a beautiful heiress (Lauren Holly). Raunchy good fun. 107 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 12/12)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30

Exodus: Gods and Kings

Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) is Moses and Joel Edgerton (Warrior) is Ramses in Ridley Scott's action-disaster retelling of the famous Biblical tale. All the basics are there: Moses rising up against the cruel Egyptian pharaoh, bringing down the plagues, setting 600,000 slaves free, parting the Red Sea. But Scott (who gave us Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Black Hawk Down and Robin Hood) is more interested in the sword-swinging battle scenes--of which there are plenty. The special effects are appropriately grandiose, but some of the casting is questionable, and the dialogue is frequently ripe. 150 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 12/12)

Force Majeure

A happy Swedish family vacations in an upscale ski resort in the French Alps. Things take a bitter turn when a sudden avalanche threatens to flatten mom, dad and the kids. This scary, snowy disaster peters out before anyone is injured, but dad reveals his true nature (maybe) by ditching the family and running away like a coward. Mom (Lisa Loven Kongsli) is quietly horrified, dad (Johannes Kuhnke) is secretly mortified, and the kids are sullenly terrified. Filmmaker Ruben Östlund uses this simple premise/discussion-starter to perform an ice-cold autopsy on modern marriage, family dynamics and gender roles. In English, Swedish and French with English subtitles. 118 minutes R. (Opens Friday 12/12)

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Peter Jackson wraps up his monumental (perhaps a little too much so) adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Here we finally get to the closing action sequence, a war that pits five armies and a dragon against one another in a battle for the fate of Middle-earth. 144 minutes PG-13. (Opens Tuesday 12/16)

This Ain't No Mouse Music!

Musical detective Chris Strachwitz is profiled in this tune-filled documentary. Since 1960 Strachwitz has been the guiding force behind anti-corporate Arhoolie Records--the legendary indie label responsible for bringing Cajun music out of Louisiana, Tex-Mex out of Texas and blues from all over the country. Here, the man himself takes us along on his quest to find the musical soul of America. 92 minutes Unrated. (Opens Tuesday 12/16)

Tokyo Story

This 1953 film from master director Yasujiro Ozu is pretty much the Japanese equivalent of an Ingmar Bergman film. In it an elderly couple journey to Tokyo, where their relatives are too busy with their modern lives and treat their elders with indifference and ingratitude. A powerful study in family politics. In Japanese with English subtitles. 136 minutes Unrated. (Saturday 12/13)

Top Five

Chris Rock writes, directs and stars in this hard-hitting satire about a popular comedian (Chris Rock) trying to make it as a serious actor who gets talked into broadcasting his wedding on TV by his reality star fiancée (Gabrielle Union).

STILL PLAYING^ back to top


Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

The popular chidren's book gets turned into a madcap comedy in which an unlucky boy transfers his bad juju to his hapless family for a single day. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner are on mom and dad duty. There isn't a lot of depth to be found here--mostly just a string of chaotic set-pieces--but director Miguel Arteta (Chuck & Buck, The Good Girl) adds just enough honest-to-goodness social awkwardness to give it a bit of gravity. 81 minutes PG.
Cottonwood Stadium 16 Fri-Thu 11:45am, 1:50, 4:15, 6:45

Big Hero 6

When Disney took over Marvel, everyone wondered what that mash-up would look like. Now we know. Based (quietly) on the Marvel comic of the same name, this sci-fi cartoon feels like a Disneyfied (in the best sense) take on the superhero genre. Tech-savvy teenager Hiro lives in futuristic San Fransokyo with his brother and aunt. But when his bro is murdered and his greatest invention stolen, Hiro teams up with an inflatable robot named Baymax and a group of self-proclaimed "science nerds" to get revenge on the masked villain responsible. The story is your standard superhero origin tale. But the sci-fi flourishes are well conceived, and the unflappably kindhearted Baymax is easily the most lovable character of the year. 108 minutes PG.

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, 21 Grams) directs Michael Keaton (Batman) in this winkingly meta farce about a washed-up action movie star who tries to mount a comeback on Broadway. Shot in what looks like a single, breathless take, the film swoops and soars through the corridors of a venerable Broadway theater watching its manic, self-loathing, hallucination-prone protagonist face crisis after crisis. Dark and funny, cynical and empathetic, this oddly experimental gem offers viewers this year's most original cinematic vision. 119 minutes R.

Dumb and Dumber To

Twenty years later moronic friends Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) reunite for a cross-country road trip. Harry's searching for the daughter he never knew, but it's really just an excuse for our two characters to engage in more of their patented clueless idiocy. 109 minutes PG-13.

The Equalizer

The popular, but mostly forgotten 1980s TV series starring Edward Woodward as an elderly, ass-kicking former intelligence agent gets a reboot courtesy of actor Denzel Washington and director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen). Washington is a tough guy with a mysterious past who volunteers to protect a young girl (Chloë Grace Moretz, Kick-Ass) from ultra-violent Russian mobsters. 131 minutes R.

Fury

Who doesn't love a good tank movie? We haven't had a good tank movie in a long time. Tanks are cool. Brad Pitt stars as a veteran Sherman tank commander leading a five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines toward the end of World War II. Outnumbered, outgunned and limping along in a broken war machine, our heroes face overwhelming odds. Gritty, bloody and brutally paced, this down-in-the-trenches look at life during wartime mixes exaggerated movie violence and "ugly truth" history in almost equal measure. 134 minutes R.

Following up on his feature directing debut, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, Tommy Lee Jones helms and stars in this alternately brutal, comic and sentimental Western. Lee plays a cantankerous drifter hired by a pious frontierswoman (Hilary Swank) to transport a trio of shell-shocked pioneer women back east. 122 minutes R.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay--Part 1

Hollywood is sick of trilogies. That's only three movies' worth of profits. The cool thing now is to take the final book in a trilogy and split it in two different movies (like The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn--Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn--Part 2). So apparently Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) has destroyed the Hunger Games. She's hiding out, trying to rescue her boyfriend (Josh Hutcherson) from evil government forces when she gets a call from the rebel leader (Julianne Moore) asking her to become the face of the rebellion. It beats being the face of L'Oreal. ... And now you only have an entire year to wait until the second half of the story. 123 minutes PG-13.

Earth is dying, and it's up to intrepid astronaut Matthew McConaughey to find mankind a new planet to colonize. The clock is ticking, man, hurry up! Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception) directs this grand, galaxy-spanning space adventure--which manages to be both artistically dreamy and science-geeky smart. Ther are plenty of moments when it swings too far in both directions--but it's still a sight to behold on the big screen. 169 minutes PG-13.

The Judge

Robert Downey Jr. is a big-city lawyer recalled to his childhood home to defend his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a local judge, on charges of murder. Downey and Duvall chew scenery at an impressive rate, but the low-grade John Grisham-wannabe script is short on logic, heavy on melodrama. 114 minutes R.

Nightcrawler

Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain) stars in this grim crime thriller-cum-satire as a sleazy hustler who worms his way into the underground world of freelance crime reporting. Armed with a video camera and a total lack of ethics, he prowls LA's dark streets looking for any stories that bleed so he can sell them to content-hungry local networks. The film has a lot of scathing things to say about today's voyeuristic culture, but it's also a tense, Taxi Driver-ish thriller. 117 minutes R.

The Pyramid

An archaeological team attempts to unlock the secrets of a lost pyramid, only to find themselves hunted by an insidious mummy. As one does. Denis O'Hare ("American Horror Story: Freakshow") and Ashley Hinshaw ("True Blood") star. This inexpensive, found-footage-style thriller marks the directing debut of the French dude who wrote Alexandre Aja's High Tension and The Hills Have Eyes. 89 minutes R.

St. Vincent

Newly divorced Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) moves with her young son next door to cranky old misanthrope Vincent (Bill Murray). Before long, the drinking, gambling war vet is baby-sitting her bullied, father-figure-seeking son. We've seen this kind of "innocent kid melts the heart of a mean, old codger" plenty of times before. But the cast really gives it their all, helping this prickly tragicomedy rise above the schmaltz. 102 minutes PG-13.

The Theory of Everything

'Tis the season for high-toned biopics. Eddie Redmayne (The Pillars of the Earth, Les Misérables) stars as world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking. This inspirational romantic drama concentrates on Hawking's pre-talking-wheelchair relationship with his college girlfriend-cum-wife Jane (Felicity Jones, Like Crazy). It's beautifully performed and perfectly bittersweet, but occasionally feels too expertly crafted for Academy Award appeal. 123 minutes Unrated.

Whiplash

A shy young musician (Miles Teller from The Spectacular Now) dreams of becoming a world-famous jazz drummer. Attending a prestigious New York music academy, he gets the opportunity to learn from the school's most infamous instructor (J.K. Simmons from "Oz"). What follows is the musical equivalent of the training camp sequence from Full Metal Jacket. Simmons is perfect as the sadistic taskmaster, but Teller matches him beat-for-beat as the determined student. 107 minutes R.

SECOND RUN^ back to top


The Book of Life

Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) produces this candy-coated, fiesta-colored cartoon. In it, two small-town pals (Diego Luna and Channing Tatum) battle for the heart of their childhood sweetheart (Zoe Saldana)--spurned on by a pair of cosmic entities, the angelic La Muerte and the demonic Xibalba. The film's complicated mythology borrows a lot from Mexico's Dia de los Muertos tradition. The result--a sort of reverse Orpheus and Eurydice--is probably too dark for the youngest kids. But this original, unpredictable toon is a vivid seasonal treat for the rest of us. FULL REVIEW: Mexican-themed cartoon offers unexpected seasonal treats by Devin D. O’Leary (10/16/2014). 95 minutes PG.

The Boxtrolls

From the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman comes this stop-motion-animated toon about a young orphan raised underground by cave-dwelling, trash-collecting trolls. The look is imaginative, but the story is so-so. Based on the children's novel Here Be Monsters! by Alan Snow. Ben Kingsley, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan provide voices. 97 minutes PG.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel Comics' superhero movies take off in a different direction, heading into outer space for this buoyantly comic, endlessly entertaining sci-fi romp.

Cult filmmaker James Gunn (Tromeo and Juliet, Dawn of the Dead, Slither, Super) writes and directs. Chris Pratt ("Parks and Recreation"), Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), Zoe Saldana (Star Trek) and Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) star. 121 minutes PG-13.

The Maze Runner

More post-apocalyptic YA teen lit hits the big screen. In this adaptation of James Dashner's hit book trilogy, a mind-erased teen (Dylan O'Brien, "Teen Wolf") is dropped into a community of "runners" trapped inside a deadly, monster-filled, impossible-to-escape maze. Why? Just wait two more movies and you'll find out. 120 minutes PG-13.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Überproducer Michael Bay (Bad Boys, Armageddon, Transformers) has his grubby fingerprints all over this unnecessary reboot of the classic comic book/cartoon series. The special effects are a major upgrade, but the story--scarred by all the usual overworked, underwritten tropes of modern screenwriting--takes a lot of liberties with the original. It's not a travesty, but it's probably not what fans want either. 101 minutes PG-13.
