Above and Below

Described as a "not-quite-documentary," this artfully assembled film explores people trying to survive on the fringes of today's pre-apocalyptic society. On the "above" side of things, we have a woman enrolled in the Mars Desert Research Station, a remote scientific outpost in Utah training people to one day live on Mars. On the "below" side of the equation, there's a homeless couple bunking down in the flood tunnels of Las Vegas. The film's other subjects are similarly isolated dwellers on the outskirts. 118 minutes Unrated. (Opens Thursday 10/20)

Rachel Weisz stars in this biopic about acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt, who was forced to provide historical proof that the Holocaust actually occurred when she was sued for libel by renowned denier David Irving. It's your basic locked-down courtroom drama. But Weisz is powerful, and the script (by British playwright David Hare) gives her plenty to chew on. 110 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 10/21)

I'm Not Ashamed

This "inspiring and powerful" true story is based on the journal entries of Rachel Joy Scott, the first student killed in the Columbine High School shooting of 1999. She's played here by Masey McLain (who played "young woman" in Christine--not the one about the demonic car, but the one about suicidal TV reporter Christine Chubbuck). Evidently Rachel loved Jesus a whole lot. Three members of the "Duck Dynasty" family are in the cast! So ... yeah. 112 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 10/21)

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Little Men

Filmmaker Ira Sachs (The Delta, Forty Shades of Blue, Keep the Lights On, Love Is Strange) co-writes and directs this family drama about Jake, a 13-year-old whose family moves back to the old Brooklyn homestead after granddad passes away. There Jake befriends Tony, a charismatic young Chilean boy whose single mother runs a dress shop out of the building's downstairs space. But when Jake's parents decide to hike the rent on Tony's mom, the kids gets sucked into a very adult feud. Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle are among the parental units. 85 minutes PG.

Long Way North

Long Way North

This French/Danish co-production comes from one of the animators who worked on The Secret of the Kells and The Painting. It relates a simple but thrilling adventure tale about a tough-minded young Russian girl who decides to run away from home and head to the North Pole, circa 1880, in order to locate her long-gone grandfather's missing exploration ship--which just happens to have $1 million ruble reward for its return. The story is rather linear, but the color-block animation is dynamic, expressing the beauty and harshness of this old-fashioned Jack-London-by-way-of-St.-Petersburg adventure. FULL REVIEW: Old-fashioned adventure yarn is an animated delight by Devin D. O’Leary (10/20/2016). 81 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 10/21)

Milking the Rhino

The filmmakers describe this as "the first major documentary to explore wildlife conservation from the perspective of people who live with wild animals." Shot on some of the most magnificent wildlife preserves in Africa, Milking the Rhino explores the idea of community-based conservation--turning poachers into preservationists and local people into the stewards of their own land. Albuquerque BioPark staff will be on hand to discuss their African wildlife conservation programs before and after the film. 85 minutes (Opens Sunday 10/23)

Miss Hokusai

The life and works of early 19th century Japanese artist and ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) painter Katsuhika Hokusai are seen through the eyes of his devoted daughter Katsushika O-Ei. This gorgeously animated Japanese biography is based on the comic book Sarusuberi by Hinako Sugiura. Sentimental, sensual and occasionally supernatural, this artsy look at bohemian Japanese life isn't exactly a kiddie cartoon. In Japanese with English subtitles. 93 minutes PG-13.

Only the Brave

This sincere war drama is presented by UNM's Japanese-American Student Association. It tells the story of the 100th Infantry Battalion, a group of second-generation Japanese-Americans who volunteered to fight in World War II--despite the fact that many of their relatives were locked up in American internment camps. These harsh, historical incidents are revealed mostly in flashbacks as a former soldier struggles with his memories of the war eight years after its end. Writer-director-star Lane Nishikawa will introduce the film and participate in a discussion after the free screening. 99 minutes R. (Opens Monday 10/24)

Ouija: Origin of Evil

The scares are amped up in this in-name-only prequel to 2014's bloodless Ouija. In 1967 Los Angeles, a widowed mother and her two daughters unwittingly invite a demonic presence into their home in a misguided attempt to bolster their seance scam business. When the youngest daughter is possessed by supernatural forces, the family fights to save her. Writer-director Mike Flanagan (Oculus) does a way better job with this old-fashioned frightener than anyone could have reasonably expected. 99 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 10/21)

The Shining

These days some people can't seem to decide if Stanley Kubrick's 1980 take on The Shining is one of the greatest horror movies ever made, or an overly lionized bastardization of Stephen King's original novel. The correct answer is "one of the greatest horror movies." If you agree then you should definitely check out this digitally restored version, hitting theaters just in time for Halloween. 146 minutes R. (Opens Sunday 10/23)

While lying in a hospital bed after a major heart attack, civil rights lawyer Edgar Cahn devised a new economic system in which people worked in order to contribute labor hours to local "time banks."

Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween

Tyler Perry writes, directs and stars in (of course he does) this slapstick comedy in which sassy old lady Madea (Perry, in drag) is forced to spend her Halloween fending off killers, poltergeists, ghouls and zombies--while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.

The Witch

The Witch

This moody, psychological and spiritual shocker is better classified as a supernatural drama than a horror film. The scares are slow in coming in this tale of a pilgrim family exiled from their Puritan community, circa 1630, and forced to live on the edge of a very forbidding forest. When crops begin to fail and a baby vanishes, the various family members are quick to find blame--either in each other, or in a vague satanic threat that may or may not exist in the woods. Writer-director Robert Eggers allegedly took much of his dialogue from transcripts of actual New England witch trials. The tone of primordial doom and gloom is palpable, but the film loses some steam in abandoning its metaphorical horrors for more concrete boogeymen. FULL REVIEW: Historical horror combines pilgrims and paranoia by Devin D. O’Leary (2/18/2016). 90 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 10/27)

Ben Affleck stars in this action thriller as an autistic, OCD-afflicted math savant who cooks the books for various high-dollar criminal clients. When the Treasury Department closes in on his activities, however, he takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a "legitimate" client. Unfortunately, corporate America turns out to be more dangerous than the Mob. 128 minutes R.

American Honey

A teenage girl with nothing to do joins a traveling magazine sales crew and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she crosses the country with a band of young misfits. Sasha Lane stars alongside Shia LaBeouf and Riley Keough.

An Art That Nature Makes: The Work of Rosamond Purcell

Acclaimed photographer Rosamond Purcell finds unexpected beauty in the discarded and decayed. Her pictures of the natural world--covering everything from a mastodon tooth to a hydrocephalic skull--have been featured on the pages of National Geographic and in more than 20 published books. Here her mesmerizing, occasionally morbid work gets the documentary treatment. 75 minutes Unrated.

After discovering a videotape showing what he believes to be his sister's experiences in the demonic woods of the Blair Witch, a young man heads into the forest looking for her. No way is this a good idea. Wingard and longtime screenwriting pal Simon Barrett toy with the concept of a "reboot/remake/sequel" while messing mercilessly with viewers' brains and unleashing some breathless scares. 89 minutes R.

Deepwater Horizon

Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell and John Malkovich star in this gritty, no-nonsense encapsulation of the worst disaster in US oil-drilling history. Director Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Lone Survivor) knows how to stage crowd-pleasing action. As explosion-filled disaster movies go, it's stirring. But the film never figures out how to address deeper questions about this environmental disaster and the corporate culture that allowed it to happen. 107 minutes PG-13.

Hell or High Water

In this modern-day Western, a divorced dad (Chris Pine) and his ex-con brother (Ben Foster) become bank robbers in order to save their family's farm in West Texas. This sets them on a collision course with dogged, soon-to-retire Texas Ranger Jeff Bridges. The tropes are familiar, but the cast is loaded with charisma and chemistry, and the film moves with the speed of a dust storm. The entertaining screenplay comes from Taylor Sheridan, who wrote the equally taut, shot-in-New-Mexico crime drama Sicario. 102 minutes R.

Try hard and you might remember this late-'90s G.I. Joe knock-off toy from Mattel. Try even harder and you might recall the animated TV spin-off that ran from 2000 to 2002. However, this live-action movie is based on the 2013 Disney XD reboot of that old series. It stars Ben Winchell (of the Disney series "A.N.T. Farm") as a teenager who bonds with an alien contraption and fights extraterrestrial monsters as the "Tachyon Unlimited Radiant Bio-Optimized" energy-charged superhero Max Steel. Taylor Lautner was gonna star in this, but he dropped out to appear in the Hasbro-based toy movie Stretch Armstrong. (Superior career movie, there, Tay-tay.) 92 minutes PG-13.

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life

This one's based on the kids' lit series by James Patterson (who never met a book series he couldn't co-author). In it, imaginative teen Rafe Katchadorian (Griffin Gluck from "Private Practice" and "Red Band Society") grows tired of his school's obsession with rules. Desperate to shake things up, Rafe and his pals come up with a plan to break every single rule in the book, leading to ... I don't know, some kind of teenage libertarian utopia? 92 minutes PG.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Tim Burton directs this fantasy-adventure based on the popular YA novel by Ransom Riggs (who basically took a bunch of weird Victorian photographs and made up stories about them). Eva Green stars as the titular Miss Peregrine, the headmistress of a well-hidden home for children with bizarre powers. Think Harry Potter crossed with the X-Men crossed with a whole lotta Tim Burton. Asa Butterfield, Samuel L. Jackson, Judi Dench, Rupert Everett. Terence Stamp and Allison Janney round out the impressive cast. 127 minutes PG-13.

No Manches Frida

A bank robber (Omar Chaparro, Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos) recently released from jail goes to recover the loot he buried years ago. The problem? The site is now covered by a high school gym! What can our man do--other than come up with a wacky scheme to pose as a substitute teacher in a school full of wild and rebellious teenagers? In Spanish with English subtitles. 100 minutes PG-13.

After his wife dies and he loses custody of his daughter, an angry, desperate man accepts a job driving a big rig across the country for cash--no questions asked. Eventually, of course, he starts asking questions and figures out he's been roped into the dark world of human trafficking. The film stars musicain Joel Smallbone of the Christian rock band For King & Country and is directed by his brother, Ben Smallbone. It was shot in Albuquerque. 97 minutes PG-13.

Queen of Katwe

Queen of Katwe

Disney and ESPN join forces for this by-the-numbers "root for the underdog" sporting drama that nonetheless manages to be deeply humanistic and emotionally affecting. Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, Mississippi Masala) directs this true-life tale of an impoverished Ugandan preteen (charismatic newcomer Madina Nalwanga) who sees a neighborhood chess class as her ticket out of the ghetto. Chess isn't the most exciting thing to watch on screen, but Nair wisely concentrates on her strong characters and doesn't shy away from the harsher realities of life in modern-day Africa. FULL REVIEW: Unfamiliar setting and offbeat subject make this sporting drama better than much of its competition by Devin D. O’Leary (9/29/2016). 124 minutes PG.

The Secret Life of Pets

From the makers of the Despicable Me films comes this manic, animated comedy about a New York City terrier named Max who regularly invites his animal friends to hang out at his place while their owners are away at work. Max's happy life is interrupted one day, though, when his owner adopts a stray mutt whom Max instantly dislikes. The slim story is borrowed from any number of Warner Bros. cartoons in which evil dogcatchers chase innocent animals around the city. But the characters are funny and engaging. 90 minutes PG.

Shin Godzilla

Toho Studios resurrects Godzilla with this 2016 reboot. The Japanese government is thrown into chaos when a rapidly mutating, nuclear-powered amphibian rises up from Tokyo Bay looking to dish out some major destruction. The giant monster action--as in most Godzilla movies--takes a backseat to the human drama. But the action that's there is impressive, and the story--about a low-level cabinet official unwittingly tasked with stopping this creature before the U.N. opts to nuke Tokyo--is appropriately tense. Writer-director Hideaki Anno ("Neon Genesis Evangelion") offers up this modern, high-tech take on the King of Monsters. FULL REVIEW: Godzilla raids again in muscular Japanese reboot by Devin D. O’Leary (10/6/2016). 120 minutes PG-13.

From the studio that gave us The Lego Movie comes this CGI cartoon about storks--you know, the kind who deliver babies. Adam Samberg, Jennifer Aniston, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Ty Burrell and Danny Trejo are among the bird-based voice cast. 89 minutes PG.

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad

Well, it's not the oppressive, monotone "grimdark" look of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but this chaotic action flick replaces that with a story and tone that is literally all over the damn place. This hot mess has the unenviable task of introducing audiences to a dozen or so unknown characters, then blending them into a team we're supposed to root for. The gimmick here is that all of our superheroes are actually supervillains, sprung from prison if they'll take part in a suicidal mission to ... accomplish something or other. Despite lots and lots of frantic CG action, this exercise in attitude can't decide if it's a winking superhero parody, an over-the-top war movie, a horror-survival video game or what. See also: What Warner Bros. did wrong with Suicide Squad by Devin D. O’Leary (8/11/2016). 123 minutes PG-13.

Heroic airplane pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger gets the big screen treatment with no less than Tom Hanks taking on the lead role. Clint Eastwood directs (as always) in his clumsy-yet-competent manner. The film concentrates mostly on the aftermath of Sullenberger's crashlanding in the Hudson River. It's a likable celebration of humble heroism, but we're mostly in it for the crash. 95 minutes PG-13.

Finding Dory

Finding Dory

Thirteen years after we went looking for Nemo, the CGI toonsters at Pixar take us on a quest to find Dory. Actually, Dory (the bubble-headed blue tang voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) is looking for her long-lost parents. Naturally, there's a lesson about family to be learned along the way. Albert Brooks, Ed O'Neill, Diane Keaton, Idris Elba and Bill Hader provide vocal support. FULL REVIEW: Simple but satisfying sequel follows its own motto and just keeps swimming by Devin D. O’Leary (6/23/2016). 97 minutes PG.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Nobody remembers her now, but in the 1920s, Florence Foster Jenkins was something of a pop culture icon. A New York heiress with dreams of grandeur, she set herself up as an opera singer, recorded a number of records and built her own personal music venue--despite having a truly terrible singing voice. Meryl Streep (as Jenkins) and Hugh Grant (as her oddly loyal "husband") star in this mostly comic, ultimately touching biopic from director Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, The Grifters, The Hi-Lo Country, High Fidelity). 110 minutes PG-13.

Yes, this reboot to the endlessly quotable 1984 supernatural comedy does feature four female leads (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones). If that's a problem, you should just stay home and complain about "feminazis" all you want on the internet. Everybody else can judge this one on its own merits. Is it innovative? No. Is it funny? Pretty much. Basically, if you grew up on the original films, this (much like the recent Star Trek movies) is just a watered-down remake with different actors. If you're fresh to the franchise, it's a perfectly servicable action comedy. 114 minutes PG-13.

Ice Age: Collision Course

Jeez, how many of these movies have they made? So many, apparently, that the Pleistocene Age animals (voiced again by Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo and Queen Latifah) are now reenacting the plot to Armageddon. Yup, a giant meteoroid is heading towards Earth threatening to wipe out mammal-kind--and it's up to a mammoth, a sloth and a saber-toothed tiger to stop it. Hey, kids gotta learn history somehow. 94 minutes PG.

The Light Between Oceans

The Light Between Oceans

Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines) writes and directs this weepy adaptation of M.L. Stedman's historical romance/tragedy. Michael Fassbender is a shell-shocked World War I veteran who takes a job manning a remote Australian lighthouse. Eventually, he marries a headstrong local lass (Alicia Vikander), but the couple suffer through a string of awful miscarriages. One fateful day, a newborn baby washes up on the shore of their rocky little island. Despite their better judgment, the couple decide to pass the kid off as their own. Yeah, this isn't going to end well. This is as gorgeous and gloomy as a Turner seascape, and the actors give well-measured performances in what amounts to a patient, literate, adult-oriented character study. FULL REVIEW: Tragedy-tinged historical romance floods the ocean with tears by Devin D. O’Leary (9/1/2016). 132 minutes PG-13.

Mechanic: Resurrection

If you think really hard, you might recall that Jason Statham made a Mechanic movie in 2011, in between making Crank, Expendables and Transporter sequels. It was actually a remake of a 1972 Charles Bronson thriller, but you'll be forgiven if the image of it just blurs into those other action flicks. Here Statham is back as an ex-hitman trying to put his violent past behind him until some baddie kidnaps his girlfriend (Jessica Alba, slowly losing all ambition) and forces him to kill some more people. Stuff sure does blow up here, all right. 99 minutes R.

Nine Lives

Barring the discovery of some youthful gay porn outing, this will undoutedly go down as the most embarrassing thing on Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey's resumé. Like some knockoff '70s live-action Disney movie, the plot to this French-funded family comedy finds Spacey cast as a stuffy business tycoon who puts work over family. Thanks to the intervention of magical pet shop owner Christopher Walken (no, really), Spacey is transformed into a cat named Mr. Fuzzypants. Now he has just one week to learn his lesson and reconcile with his family (as a cat, mind you) or he'll be a feline forever. 87 minutes PG.

Jonah Hill (Superbad, Moneyball) and Miles Teller (Whiplash, Divergent) star in this loosely-based-on-a-true-story comedy/drama about two young hustlers who somehow landed a $300 million Pentagon contract to supply arms to America's allies in Afghanistan. What follows is a bleak comedy of errors involving a lot of guns and a lot of bad people. 114 minutes R.
