Born in China

Saturday, April 22, is Earth Day--meaning, it's time for Disneynature to release another family-friendly animal documentary. These things are short on education and long on "awww"s. This one heads to the wilds of China to watch a panda bear, a golden monkey and a snow leopard deal with various adventures that center of the struggle to survive though the seasons. John Krasinski ("The Office") provides the sunny narration. 76 minutes G. (Opens Friday 4/21)

Dead Man

Before he spilled his ego all over The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp starred in another, far weirder Western--Jim Jarmusch's highly metaphysical, hypnotically paced 1995 film Dead Man. Depp plays a wounded accountant named William Blake who wanders around a surreal western frontier some time in the last half of the 19th century. He teams up with a Native American outcast named Nobody (Gary Farmer), sees some apocalyptic visions and crosses paths with Iggy Pop (who's wearing a dress and reading the Bible). The whole thing is filmed in black-and-white, and Neil Young provided the noisy score. Double-featured with Powwow Highway. 120 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 4/27)

Free Fire

Sharlto Copley (District 9), Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins), Brie Larson (Room) and Noah Taylor (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) star in this manic crime comedy from cult filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Kill List, A Field in England, High-Rise). It's 1978, and some IRA soldiers are meeting with a few professional gun-runners in a deserted Boston warehouse. Unfortunately (for the characters), it all devolves into a bullet-riddled, feature-length shoot-'em-up. It ain't terribly original, but it's a shot of adrenaline for cult action fans. 90 minutes R.

The Graduate

TCM presents the 50th anniversary screening of Mike Nichols' seminal comedy about a disillusioned college grad (the unforgettable Dustin Hoffman), who finds himself torn between his girlfriend (Katherine Ross) and her hot mom (Anne Bancroft). It was nominated for seven Academy Awards and took home Best Director. 106 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 4/23)

Grow House

Barely in time for 4/20 comes this weed-smoking comedy written and directed by hip hop producer DJ Pooh. It's about two stoners who decide to start a medical marijuana company. It stars Snoop Dogg as himself and Malcolm McDowell as "Dr. Doobie." I wish to Jesus that weren't true. R. (Opens Thursday 4/20)

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

The third film in the Indiana Jones series brings in Sean Connery as Dr. Jones' crotchety dad, on a quest to snatch the Holy Grail from Nazi clutches. This 1989 outing isn't as exciting as some of the other films, but it makes up for that with some great humor and some much-appreciated character development. 127 minutes PG-13. (Opens Tuesday 4/25)
Flix Brewhouse Tue 7:00, 7:45

Indignation

In 1951, a working class Jewish student from New Jersey (Logan Lerman, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) attends a small Ohio college where he struggles with sexual repression and cultural disaffection. Also, the Korean War is going on. This highbrow sex comedy/drama is based on the novel by the notoriously-difficult-to-adapt Philip Roth. 110 minutes R. (Opens Friday 4/21)
SUB Theater Fri-Sat 6:00, 8:30; Sun 1:00, 3:30

The Lost City of Z

Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller (three decent, but hardly exciting actors) star in this "true-life" drama about a British explorer who disappeared while searching for a mysterious lost city in the Amazon, circa 1920. David Grann's book of the same name was a huge best-seller, and onetime Martin Scorsese wannabe James Gray (Little Odessa, The Yards, We Own the Night) writes and directs with a newfound sense of classicism. The whole exercise feels more workmanlike than epic. But it looks beautiful in a Werner Herzog kind of way. 141 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 4/20)

Kevin Smith's 1995 comedy finds two best friends (Jeremy London, Jason Lee) seeking refuge in a New Jersey mall after being dumped by their girlfriends. Shannen Doherty, Claire Florlani, Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams, Jason Mewes, Ethan Suplee and Stan Lee star in this "View Askewniverse" favorite. 94 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 4/27)

Phoenix Forgotten

That "found footage" horror film about the Phoenix Lights you've been waiting 20 years for has finally showed up. Seems that a group of teenagers disappeared while investigating the rather boring phenomenon. Luckily, this shaky video camera footage chronicles the final hours of their fateful expedition. No-name cast includes Florence Hartigan, Luke Spencer Roberts, Chelsea Lopez, Justin Matthews and Clint Jordan. Weirdly enough, Ridley Scott helped produced it. 80 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 4/21)

Pink Floyd The Wall

Alan Parker's drug-induced take on Pink Floyd's drug-induced concept album remains a feat of visual storytelling. There's not much here other than a too-successful rock star (Bob Geldof of The Boomtown Rats) locking himself in a hotel room, flashing back over his life and going progressively more insane. But wow, is it a sight to behold with surreal imagery, booming music and animation from the great Gerald Scarfe. A must on the big screen. 95 minutes R. (Monday 4/24)
Guild Cinema Mon-Wed 8:30

Powwow Highway

Introspective and quick-tempered activist Buddy Red Bow (A Martinez) struggles to keep his Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana solvent and free from the corrupting influence of greedy developers. But when his sister is arrested in Santa Fe, he joins up with his mystically minded best friend, a hulking Vietnam vet named Philbert (the great Gary Farmer), on a cross-country road trip to bail her out. 88 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 4/27)

The Promise

Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Shohreh Aghdashloo and James Cromwell star in this historical drama attempting to shed light on the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Isaac plays an Armenian medical student caught in a love triangle between an Armenian-born woman raised in France (Charlotte Le Bon, The Hundred-Foot Journey) and an American journalist (Bale) during the final years of the Ottoman Empire. It's a noble and seemingly factual attempt to highlight a forgotten chapter of world history--but the film proves to be an uneasy mix of brutal war story and soapy love story. 132 minutes PG-13.

Their Finest

Lone Sherfig (Italian For Beginners, An Education) directs this crowd--pleasing comedy/drama/romance inspired by a real-life British agency during World War II tasked with boosting morale by making optimistic propaganda films. Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Clash of the Titans) headlines as a self-doubting London gal looking for work during the Blitzkreig. She finds it writing dialogue for propaganda shorts, working with a narcissistic actor (Bill Nighy) and falling for her fellow screenwriter (Sam Claflin from the Hunger Games films). 117 minutes R.

Truman

A teacher living in Canada (Javier Cámara) flies to Spain to hang out with his pal Julián (Ricardo Darin). Julian, it seems, is dying of cancer and fears that his friend is in town to talk him out of his decision to suspend treatment. Instead, the two sublimate their feelings into a quest to figure out what to do with Julián's sad-eyed pet boxer (and title character). The result is a graceful, humorous look at death and the art of dying. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. 108 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 4/21)

Who's Crazy

This long-lost anarchic classic from 1966 has been rediscovered and restored. It features a frenetic soundtrack from the great Ornette Coleman (with help from Marianne Faithful) and features the cast of New York's experimental theater troupe The Living Theater. The odd, improvised, slapstick story finds a group of inmates escaping from an insane asylum and holing up in a deserted Belgian farmhouse where they start their own society. It's a weird groove, all right. 73 minutes Unrated. (Opens Monday 4/24)

Beauty and the Beast

Disney's animated classic from 1991 gets the live-action remake treatment. (Soon, all will submit!) Emma Watson from the Harry Potter series takes over as Belle, the bookish heroine who finds herself falling for a hairy prince (Dan Stevens from "Downton Abbey"). Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson are among the stars voicing various animate household objects. It looks and sounds gorgeous--but, yes, you've seen it all before. 129 minutes PG.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby

In this oddly conceived CGI toon from DreamWorks Animation, a suit-wearing, briefcase-carrying infant (voiced by Alec Baldwin) is assigned by Baby Corp. to infiltrate the household of prepubescent Tim (Miles Christopher Bakshi) in order to spy on his parents. Seems Mom and Dad work for Puppy Co., and the company's evil CEO has a secret plot to replace people's love for babies with a love for puppies, and ... Seriously, this film makes very little sense. If the idea of Alec Baldwin saying "Cookies are for closers!" sends you into paroxysms of laughter, this is the film for you. FULL REVIEW: Weirdly conceived kiddy cartoon bogs down in confusing mythology by Devin D. O’Leary (3/30/2017). 97 minutes PG.

The Case For Christ

This faith-based drama is inspired by the true story of Lee Strobel, an award-winning journalist and avowed atheist (played here by Mike Vogel of Cloverfield) who applies his journalistic skills to disproving the newfound Christian faith of his wife (Erika Christensen). Spoiler alert: He fails. If you're not already a Christian apologist, then Strobel's quest (which basically involves interviewing a bunch of evangelical theologists) isn't going to constitute any sort of persuasive argument. 112 minutes PG-13.

The increasingly crowded cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriquez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Kurt Russell, Luke Evans and Scott Eastwood.

Frantz

From French provocateur François Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Women, Water Drops on Burning Rocks) comes this surprisingly straightforward melodrama set in Germany and Fracne in the immediate aftermath of the First World War. Anna (21-year-old Paula Beer) is a member of the "Lost Generation"--a young German girl mourning her fiancé, Frantz, who was killed in the war. One day, a French veteran named Adrien (Pierre Niney, Yves Saint Laurent) shows up to place flowers at Frantz' grave. As Anna grows closer to this melancholy stranger, she learns of his conflicted feelings. This rich, black-and-white drama is loosely inspired by Ernst Lubitsch' 1932 dramaBroken Lullaby. In French and German with English subtitles. 113 minutes PG-13.

Ghost in the Shell

Masamune Shirow's prototypical cyberpunk manga series (later adapted as an anime in 1995 by Momoru Oshii) goes live-action with Scarlett Johansson as a special task force police officer whose entire body has been replaced by cybertechnology. In the near future, she and her teammates hunt down a mysterious terrorist with the ability to hack into humans and control their bodies via their computer-enhanced brains. The film nails the visual aesthetic of Oshii's anime, but fails to capture the philosophical underpinnings of Shirow's manga. 106 minutes PG-13.

Kedi

Cat lovers will be in Heaven with this warm and fuzzy documentary about the cats of Istanbul. Not quite house cats, not quite feral animals, the felines of Istanbul have freely roamed the storied Turkish city for thousands of years. This film concentrates on a handful of these furry characters as they wander in and out of the lives of various people. Somehow, rather than being tamed, these cats have tamed those around them, inspiring joy, kindness and comfort in streets, homes and businesses. Beautifully shot and magically told. In Turkish with English subtitles. 80 minutes Unrated.

Kong: Skull Island

Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, John Goodman, freakin' everybody shows up on an uncharted Pacific island trying to solve the mystery of its isolation--only to discover its primary inhabitant is a hundred-foot-tall ape with anger issues. Between this silly fun creature feature and the recent reboot of Godzilla, Legendary Entertainment is hoping to launch their own giant monster franchise. 120 minutes PG-13.

Life

The crew of the International Space Station experiments on a primitive life form found on Mars. Clearly, no one in this movie has ever watched Alien. Despite some clear cinematic predecessors, this is a smartly assembled horror-thriller that emphasizes the scientific over the militant. You know where it's going, but it's fun getting there. Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson and Jake Gyllenhaal are among the cast of doomed astronauts. 103 minutes R.

Logan

Hugh Jackman returns as Logan/Wolverine in this X-Men spinoff. Loosely based on the Old Man Logan comic book series by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, this brutal, bruising drama is set in a post-apocalyptic future in which mutants have all but dwindled out of existence. A not-so-well-aged Wolvie is busy hiding out in the Mexican desert and taking care of a senile Professor X (Patrick Stewart) when a mysterious preteen mutant (Dafne Keen) with a serious connection to our claw-popping hero shows up needing his help. Stripped down, bleakly imagined and properly bloody, this superpowered Western is a stark, satisfying stand-alone. 137 minutes R.

Power Rangers

TV-to-movie nostalgia hits '90s kids with this big budget reboot of the loooong-running Saban series that basically steals all its special effects from old Japanese TV shows. In it, some high school kids are infused with unique superpowers, get color-coordinated outfits and fight giant space aliens (led by Elizabeth Banks). Unfortunately, the film spends an awful lot of time dealing with angsty teenage melodrama. It's like everybody involved was too embarrassed to get out and, you know, fight those giant space aliens. When the action finally does arrive, it's fun and flashy--even though it's swamped in that "realistic" grimdark monochrome of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Seriously, Hollywood, make with the color again! 124 minutes PG-13.

The Shack

After his young daughter is murdered, a grieving man (Sam Worthington, Avatar) receives a mysterious, personal invitation to meet with God (Octavia Spencer) at the remote shack where his daughter was killed. There, he encounters manifestations of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost and learns some sort of lesson. Probably religious in nature. This faith-based drama is based on the best-selling Christian novel by William P. Young. 132 minutes PG-13.

Smurfs: The Lost Village

Neil Patrick Harris and Hark Azaria gracefully bow out of this all-animated take on the Smurfs. Seems that, for this go-around, a mysterious map sends Smurfette and her tiny blue pals on a journey through the Forbidden Forest to discover "the biggest secret in Smurf history." Parents are advised to dump the kids and run. 89 minutes PG.

Spark: A Space Tail

Somehow, Jessica Biel, Susan Sarandon, Hilary Swank and Patrick Stewart got talked into providing voices for this cheap, 3D computer-animated sci-fi comedy from Canada/South Korea. It's about a teenage space monkey who joins forces with a fox and a warthog to take back the planet Bana from an evil general. 90 minutes PG.

T2 Trainspotting

No, Renton, Begbie, Spud and Sick Boy haven't returned to fight off Arnold Schwarzenegger and prevent Judgment Day. Instead, director Danny Boyle and his cast have come back to Scotland after 20 years to see what our favorite heroin addicts are up to these days. There's a tonal shift, of course, making this one much more melancholy than the amped-up, savagely humored original. Still, there are some fun moments for fans. 117 minutes R.

A United Kingdom

Back in the late 1940s, Seretse Khama--prince of Bechuanaland and the first president of Botswana--met, fell in love with and married a common English girl working as a clerk at Lloyd's of London. The interracial relationship shocked much of Africa and certain people in England as well, making it fine fodder for a historical biopic. David Oyelowo (Selma) stars Khama, while Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) takes up the role of his paramour, Ruth Williams. British filmmaker Amma Asante (Belle) adds some workmanlike direction to Oyelowo and Pike's quiet chemistry. 111 minutes PG-13.

The Zookeeper's Wife

In this based-on-a-true-story biopic directed by Niki Caro (Whale Rider), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) and Johan Heldenbergh ("The Tunnel") star as Antonina and Jan Zabinski, the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo during World War II. Together, they helped save hundreds of people and animals during the German invasion of Poland. This tasteful and mostly formulaic historical heart-tugger is based on the book of the same name by Diane Ackerman. 124 minutes PG-13.

SECOND RUN^ back to top


A Dog's Purpose

Lasse Hallström (My Life as a Dog, Hachi: A Dog's Tale) directs this movie about a dog who tries to discover his purpose in life over the course of several lifetimes and owners. Every time he dies, you see, he's reincarnated as another dog. In other words: It's a feel-good movie about a dog who dies. Repeatedly. Josh Gad voices the dog. Based on the novel by W. Bruce Cameron. 120 minutes PG.

Fist Fight

Charlie Day ( "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") is a nebbish teacher who runs afoul of a pugnacious fellow teacher (Ice Cube), gets him fired and is challenged to an after-school fight. The bulk of this simple comedy is taken up with our protagonist trying to avoid the titular altercation. 91 minutes R.

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.

John Wick: Chapter 2

Keanu Reeves shot back into relevance with 2014's hard-hitting, stripped-to-the-bone, out-of-nowhere action flick John Wick. This second outing amps things up a bit for Reeves' titular, light-lipped assassin, but--between Reeves' grimly stone-faced performance and the film's near-balletic bloodshed--still manages to achieve the same level of pure pulp poetry. 122 minutes R.

The LEGO Batman Movie

Fans of 2014's The LEGO Movie (and there are plenty) are, no doubt, salivating at the prospect of a spinoff concentrating on Will Arnett's hilariously self-obsessed crimefighter. This time around, Bruce Wayne finds himself dealing with a wave of criminals in Gotham City (including, but not limited to, Zach Galifianakis' Joker, Jenny Slate's Harley Quinn, Conan O'Brien's Riddler, Doug Benson's Bane and Billy Dee Williams' Two-Face). On top of that, our hero's learning to accept the responsibility of his recently adopted ward, Dick Grayson (Michael Cera). No, it's not as profound as its predecessor. But damned if it isn't ridiculously fast-paced fun. 104 minutes PG.

Lion

Adapted from Saroo Brierley's autobiographical book A Long Way Home, this tear-jerking/inspirational drama relates the life story of a 5-year-old Indian boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of miles from home. Eventually, he is a adopted by a kindly Australian couple. Some 25 years later, he returns to India to sort out his confusing past and mixed identity. Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) stars alongside Nicole Kidman, David Wenham and Rooney Mara. 118 minutes PG-13.

Split

M. Night Shyamalan--on something of a roll after 2015's surprisingly good, stripped-down thriller The Visit--casts James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as a psycho killer with 24 distinct personalities. In order to escape his death dungeon, three young women must seek out and exploit the "nice" personalities inside of him, while avoiding the "nasty" ones. Sure, there's a twist to it all, but Shyamalan expertly delivers enough psychological gimmickry and nerve-jangling scares to give this claustrophobic little frightener a solid base before the big--and completely unexpected--reveal. 117 minutes PG-13.
