12 Strong

A team of Special Forces solders (Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon and Michael Peña among them) are sent into Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11. Their mission: team up with an Afghani warlord and take down a Taliban stronghold—in less than three weeks. Based on a true, declassified story, this simple war drama (on horseback, no less) captures some thrilling battle scenes. (Director Nicolai Fuglsig was an actual war photographer in Kosovo.) If only the story had more depth and drama to it. FULL REVIEW: Latest war movie proves Hollywood is still soldiering on by Devin D. O’Leary (1/18/2018). 130 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 1/18)

Forever My Girl

If you love movies based on Nicolas Sparks books … I personally think you should be questioning your taste level. On the other hand, the makers of this sub-Lifetime Channel romance think that if you love movies based on Nicolas Sparks books, you should totally come watch their film. No, it's not based on a Nicolas Sparks book, but writer-director Bethany Ashton Wolf (who co-wrote the one Leonardo DiCaprio film no one's ever seen, Don's Plum) sure knows how to work those tropes. Seems a famous country music star (Alex Roe, The 5th Wave) returns to his small Louisiana hometown after 10 years. He promptly reunites with the high-school sweetheart he left at the altar (Jessica Rothe, Happy Death Day) and inherits a previously unknown daughter. The producers use the words "heartwarming" and "uplifting" an awful lot. 104 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 1/19)

Freak Show

An outrageous, out-and-proud, gender-bending teenager named Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther from The Imitation Game) is unceremoniously sent by his glamorous mother (Bette Midler) to live with his straight-laced father. Suddenly, the diva-out-of-water finds himself attending an ultra-conservative high school. Undaunted by the bullies and nay-sayers, Billy sets out to make a name for himself by challenging the school's reigning mean girl (Abigail Breslin) for the title of homecoming queen. 95 minutes Unrated.

Hostiles

In 1892—as the American West and the "Indian Wars" are dying off—a legendary Army captain (Christian Bale) agrees to escort a Cheyenne chief (Wes Studi) and his family through dangerous territory in this mournful, hard-hitting historical Western from writer-director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart). As the hard journey wears on, the troupe adds a string of disparate new members, raising the danger and tension level. This dark, thoughtful Western has more than a few tonal echoes of Clint Eastwood's era-ending Unforgiven. 134 minutes R. (Opens Friday 1/19)

Killing For Love

This gripping, true crime docudrama explores the gruesome 1985 killings of Nancy and Derek Haysom in central Virginia. Arrested and convicted for the murder of the wealthy socialites were the Haysom's overachieving academic daughter and her high-society, son-of-a-diplomat boyfriend. New evidence, recanted confessions and a wealth of personal interviews—all dug up by a couple of obsessive German filmmakers—cast serious doubt on the long-held narrative of this real-life film noir case. 130 minutes Unrated.

Kung Fu Panda

In this 2008 family cartoon, Jack Black provides the voice for a panda whose lazy ways must be reformed when his peaceful valley is invaded by the forces of evil.

Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry

In the last half-century, rural Henry County, Ky., has become an ideological battleground. Once the home to agrarian virtues of simplicity, land stewardship, sustainable farming and local economies, the county is now a capital-intensive model of industrial agriculture, machine labor, chemical fertilizers, soil erosion and crushing debt. Filmed over the course of four seasons, this documentary blends observational scenes of farming life and interviews with modern-day farmers, activists and community members. 82 minutes Unrated. (Opens Tuesday 1/23)

My Neighbor Totoro

This 1988 kiddie film is master Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki's most impossibly charming film. Two little girls move to a rural house to be near their ailing mother and are soon befriended by a giant, fuzzy spirit of the forest. The story is super simple, but the film is simply irresistible. English dubbed and in Japanese with English subtitles. 86 minutes G. (Opens Monday 1/22)

Phantom Thread

Writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood) reunites with Daniel Day-Lewis for this Hitchcockian period romance about a perfectionist fashion designer (Day-Lewis) in post-World War II London. One day our self-absorbed genius stumbles across a funny, ordinary and disarmingly frank waitress (Luxembourg-born unknown Vicky Krieps), whom he adopts as his new muse—much to the chagrin of his overprotective sister (Lesley Manville). 130 minutes R.

Call Me By Your Name

Call Me By Your Name

Brit James Ivory (Howards End, Remains of the Day, A Room With a View) adapts the book from André Aciman, and Italian Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) directs this lush, louche and incredibly languid coming-of-age love story. Teenage Elio (Timothée Chalamet) is an upper-upper middle-class Jewish-American kid lazing around his academic parents' Italian villa for the summer. Twentysomething Oliver (Armie Hammer) is the Adonis-like graduate student who shows up to push papers for Elio's dad. The two lol about the pool, eating ripe fruit and glaring at each other under hooded eyelids. After an hour or so of that, Elio gets around to confessing that he might be gay and might be attracted to Oliver. Lots of walks through the picturesque Italian countryside and a few incredibly academic debates ensue. Also, some sex. A tiny bit anyway. FULL REVIEW: Languid romance withers under the Tuscan sun by Devin D. O’Leary (1/11/2018). 132 minutes R.

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.

The Commuter

Liam Neeson does his now standard "quiet, unassuming old dude kicks some serious ass" thing in this transportation-based thriller. Neeson reunites with Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop) for ... well, Non-Stop on a train instead of a plane. Seems that Neeson's unassuming businessman gets caught up in a murderous criminal conspiracy during his regular commute home. Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Sam Neill and Elizabeth McGovern are along for the ride. 104 minutes PG-13.

Condorito: The Movie

This computer-animated Chilean cartoon finds a soccer-playing condor boy (just roll with it) embarking on a "hilarious adventure" to save the planet from evil alien invaders. It's based on a popular Chilean comic strip which has been around since 1949. In Spanish with English subtitles. 88 minutes PG.

Darkest Hour

Gary Oldman transforms himself for this historical biopic about British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The film—directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Anna Karenina)—covers much the same early World War II time period as Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. Despite its wartime setting, the film is really a testament to the power of words and the ability of great speakers (not to mention great actors) to inspire others. 125 minutes PG-13.

The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist

James Franco directs and stars in this biographical comedy about Tommy Wiseau, the inscrutable (and questionably talented) writer-director behind "the Citizen Kane of bad movies," 2003's ridiculous cult hit The Room. Franco's baby bro Dave Franco co-stars as Greg Sestero, the lousy but determined San Francisco actor who befriends Wiseau. After a move to Los Angeles in search of fame and fortune proves fruitless, the two deluded dreamers talk each other into making their own independent film. Aside from Franco's hilariously deadpan imitation of the oddball Wiseau, the film features a surprisingly affecting depiction of the allure that Hollywood holds and the lengths some people will go to achieve it. FULL REVIEW: Actor-director James Franco transforms into actor-director Tommy Wiseau by Devin D. O’Leary (12/7/2017). 103 minutes R.

Insidious: The Last Key

It's a general rule of thumb: Beware any horror movie with the words "Last" or "Final" in the title. They're probably lying. In any case, here's the fourth film in the ghostly Insidious franchise. Chronologically speaking, this one takes place after Insidious 3, but before Insidious and Insidious 2. It concentrates on demonologist Elise Rainier (cult actress Lin Shaye) as she goes to New Mexico to investigate the haunted house she grew up in. 103 minutes PG-13.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Only grown-up hipster nerds play board games now, so this belated sequel to 1995's Jumanji finds a bunch of teens discovering an ancient, mystical video game version of Jumanji. Naturally, they try it out and get transported inside the game itself. The joke this time around is that they end up in the "bodies" of some stereotypical video game avatars (played by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan) and must use their three allotted lives to escape. 119 minutes PG-13.

It feels like they made 10 of these films already, despite the fact that this is only the third in the series. Anna Kendrick, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson return as the now-former members of a college a cappella chorus who reunite to go on a USO tour (which is also a competition, because everything has to be a singing competition these days). If you're some insane fan of Pentatonix, "Glee" and "American Idol," and can't get enough a cappella mashups of Britney Spears songs, this musical comedy is aimed squarely at you. 93 minutes PG-13.

The Post

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in this incredibly timely (if a bit self-congratulatory) drama about journalists at the Washington Post and the New York Times struggling with the decision to publish the Pentagon Papers, detailing the controversial involvement of the United States government in the Vietnam War. It's a pressure cooker of a literary thriller about hard journalism and value of the Fourth Estate in a democratic society that still imagines itself a Capra-esque game changer. 115 minutes PG-13.

The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water

Mexican horror auteur Guillermo del Toro (Cronos, The Devil's Backbone, Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) co-writes and directs this loving update of postwar monster movies. Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky) stars as a mute cleaning woman working in a top-secret government lab, circa 1962. There, she meets a similarly voiceless amphibian man (played by famed man-in-a-rubber-suit actor Doug Jones). She befriends him, tries to free him and eventually falls in love with him. This adult-oriented, mid-century modern fairy tale about love and xenophobia is gorgeous, timely and filled with humid sexuality.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Writer-director Rian Johnson (of cult hits Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper) takes over the reins for this follow-up to J.J. Abrams' energetic-but-hidebound 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now that the setup is out of the way, "Force sensitive" young warrior Rey (Daisy Ridley) has hunted down Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and is looking for a little training. But is the now-cynical Jedi willing to accept a disciple? And will Rey stick around or run off just like Luke did, looking for revenge against emotionally unstable villain Kylo Ren (Adam Driver)? This epic, unexpected outing heads in directions few fans saw coming—leaving some to grouse and others to rejoice. Frankly, its break with tradition along with its mixture of sharp character drama and outsized action makes it this a Star Wars for the new millennium. 152 minutes PG-13.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

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 erects 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. FULL REVIEW: Crime doesn’t pay and neither does justice in pitch perfect comedy-drama by Devin D. O’Leary (11/30/2017). 115 minutes R.

SECOND RUN^ back to top


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.

Get Out

Jordan Peele (of "Key and Peele" fame) writes and directs his first feature, a timely and rather subversive horror-comedy twist on The Stepford Wives. A young African-American man named Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) visits his new Caucasian girlfriend's liberal parents (Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener) in their upscale country estate. The family and their lily-white neighbors seem weirdly, condescendingly friendly. Is Chris being paranoid or is there something strange going on? Peele skillfully combines twisty thrills with savvy satire for a satisfying, action-packed genre mash-up.

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.

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.
