Dunkirk

Dunkirk

Writer-director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy) offers the finest film of his already impressive career with this epic yet intimate war story about the evacuation of Dunkirk, France during World War II. Nolan's ingenious script spins three stories at once, taking us to a week before the evacuation, a day before the evacuation and an hour before the evacuation. First, a terrified soldier tries to get off the bloody beach in France. Second, a fleet of ragtag private boats sets out from England to rescue the stranded army. Finally, a dedicated pilot runs a last-minute mission over the English Channel. As the time-fractured stories progress, they crash, successively, into one another. The result is a visceral, nerve-shredding and ultimately stirring portrait of the fear, chaos and heroism that surrounds war. FULL REVIEW: Christopher Nolan goes to war in a heart-pounding, historical drama about victory in the jaws of defeat by Devin D. O’Leary (7/20/2017). 106 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 7/20)

Megamind

It seems the world's greatest superhero, Metro Man (Brad Pitt), is out of the crime-fighting biz thanks largely to the efforts of his brainy nemesis Megamind (Will Ferrell). Unfortunately, that leaves Megamind with little to do. Naturally, he fabricates a sham superhero (Jonah Hill) to battle. But when that fake hero decides to destroy the world instead, it's up to Megamind to turn good and save the planet. This 2010 CGI toon comes to us from the folks who made Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, but it isn't nearly as good. 96 minutes PG. (Opens Tuesday 7/25)

Shrek

The photo-realistic animation in this 2001 kids' book come-to-life was groundbreaking at the time, and a top-notch cast (Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy) ensures plenty of laughs throughout. The story takes place in a fantasy world where fairy tales are real and a big, green ogre searches for love. 89 minutes PG. (Wednesday 7/26)

Skyfall

Bond is back in one of his biggest, best adventures to date--this 50th anniversary film from 2012. Bond (Daniel Craig), his confidence shaken by a failed mission, must save spy agency ice queen M (Judi Dench) when a ghost from her past (the wonderfully over-the-top Javier Bardem) returns looking for vengeance. This emotional (yes, emotional!), action-packed thriller is filled with shout-outs, in-jokes and cameos from throughout the 007 franchise's history. 143 minutes PG-13. (Opens Tuesday 7/25)

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Visionary director Luc Besson (Subway, La Femme Nikita, The Fifth Element, Lucy), turns a trippy French comic book into a trippy comic book of a movie. On a planet that serves as home to a thousand alien species, two interplanetary super-spies (The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Dane DeHaan and Suicide Squad's Cara Delevingne) must identify and stop a marauding menace from the stars in order to save the universe. Yes, it offers even more loopy, mind-bending eye candy than The Fifth Element, but you probably shouldn't spend much time analyzing the ludicrous, overstuffed storyline. 137 minutes PG-13.

Yeah, sharks don't really have any interest in eating skinny white girls. 89 minutes PG-13.

Baby Driver

Baby Driver

Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) writes and directs this fast-paced, music-filled crime thriller which demonstrates a healthy love for the gritty car chase dramas of the 1970s (and a stylistic awe of the cracked-out Quentin Tarantino/Doug Liman/Guy Ritchie crime flicks of the '90s). Ansel Elgort (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant) stars as an obsessive young getaway driver who gets coerced into working "one last job" for nasty crime boss (Kevin Spacey) before he can ride off into the sunset with his ladylove (Lily James from "Downton Abbey" and Cinderella). Naturally, everything that can go wrong does go wrong, leaving our music-loving wheelman to put pedal to metal and escape. It's more fun than original, but it works. FULL REVIEW: Edgar Wright takes an eclectic cast on a high-speed joyride with the stereo cranked to 11 by Devin D. O’Leary (7/6/2017). 113 minutes R.

The Beguiled

Back in 1971 Clint Eastwood and his Dirty Harry director Don Siegel made a very creepy, extremely offbeat, Civil War-set Gothic drama called The Beguiled. Now Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation) comes along to reinterpret it as the lurid, psychosexual thriller it always wanted to be. Colin Farrell stars as a Union soldier who gets wounded and ends up hiding out at a girls' school in Virginia, where the young women have been sheltered from the outside world. Soon, the man's presence wakes up the jealousies, rivalries and sexual tensions simmering among the school's head teacher (Nicole Kidman) and her young charges (including Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst). 93 minutes R.

The Big Sick

Comedian Kumail Nanjiani ("Silicon Valley") and his wife wrote this unusual romantic comedy based on their own fractured path to a relationship. Nanjiani stars as a Pakistani-American dodging his old school parents' attempts to land him an arranged marriage. He meets and falls in love with the perfect (Caucasian) gal (Zoe Kazan), but she unexpectedly falls into a medical coma. Oddly enough, this causes him to meet and bond with her parents (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano). It sounds like serious stuff--and in parts it's brimming with well-earned emotions--but it's also really funny. This is about as well-written and well-acted as rom-coms get. 119 minutes R.

Cars 3

Cars 3

This time around Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is the old-timer, trying to prove, one last time, that he can compete against a new generation of high-tech race cars (who talk, of course). Real-life racer Darrell Waltrip contributes a voice as "Darrell Cartrip." That's funny. Is that funny? I can't tell anymore. This sentimental trip around the track is a damn sight better than the last sequel. FULL REVIEW: Sentimental and scenic, trilogy-ending sports flick cruises to the finish line by Devin D.

Despicable Me 3

Poor, misunderstood mad scientist Gru (Steve Carell) tried to go legit in the last Despicable Me movie, but this newest animated outing finds him fired from his job as a superspy. A timely reunion with his long-lost (and incredibly successful) twin brother has him plotting one last villainous heist (with the help of his minions, of course). 90 minutes PG.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Well-meaning space rogues Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) are back trying to save the galaxy. This time around, they've got the added wrinkle of unraveling Star-Lord's true parentage--in the form of an anthropomorphized planet known as Ego (played amusingly by Kurt Russell). This sequel's a bit more jokey--but it doesn't shirk on emotional detail either. You can debate whether it's better than the original or not, but you can't deny that it's pure, unadulterated summer movie fun. 136 minutes PG-13.

The Mummy

Universal is still trying to make "fetch" happen by relaunching (once again) all of its classic (read: public domain) monsters in a gigantic, interconnected "Dark Universe." (Just like Marvel's Avengers franchise ... they hope.) First out of the gate is this all-over-the-map action flick featuring Tom Cruise battling an ancient female mummy (Sofia Boutella from Star Trek Beyond) with the help of a secret, international, monster-fighting organization led by a Nick Fury-esque Dr. Jekyll (Russell Crowe). Yes, it's as silly as it sounds. But get ready for the Invisible Man, the Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, the Creature From the Black Lagoon, the Phantom of the Opera and the Hunchback of Notre Dame--coming soon to a theater near you. 110 minutes PG-13.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

I think this is the fifth of Disney's Pirates movies. But I wouldn't swear to it in court. The problem being that, despite some very entertaining moments, the chaotic scripts all blend into one another. (Anyone remember what 2011's On Stranger Tides was about? Or what happened at the end of 2007's At World's End?) This time around, we've got Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow searching for the mystical trident of Poseidon. Also, a ghostly Spaniard (Javier Bardem) is trying to kill him. Also, Paul McCartney is in it. Sure, it's fun. No, it's not a coherent narrative. 129 minutes PG-13.

Turns out Transformers have been on Earth at least since World War II. And it looks like they'll be with us forever, judging by this, the fifth film in Michael Bay's endlessly exploding film series about robots from outer space pretending to be motor vehicles. (By the way, we're not fooled by that any more, guys. There's no point pretending to be a Datsun. We know you're a giant robot.) This time around the Autobots and the Decepticons are fighting over Merlin's magical staff. ... No, really. This series has gotten too silly to even discuss. 148 minutes PG-13.

War for the Planet of the Apes

These recent Planet of the Apes reboots (2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and this one) have been sober, exciting and surprisingly thought-provoking. Here, ape commander Caesar (the great, CGI-covered Andy Serkis) wrestles with his own darker instincts as he battles the dwindling forces of mankind (as embodied by Woody Harrelson's blood-crazed Colonel) for the future of planet Earth. 140 minutes PG-13.

Wish Upon

This months' cheap teen horror movie finds a high school gal (Joey King, Independence Day: Resurgence) discovering a mysterious magic box that grants magic wishes--and kills people you love in exchange. Duh. Come on, millennials: Watch an episode of "Twilight Zone" or at least "Friday the 13th: The Series" before you go messing with supernatural forces. 90 minutes PG-13.

Wonder Woman

Warner Bros. finally gets around to tackling one of DC Comics' most famous characters. Israeli actress Gal Gadot stars as the titular Amazonian princess, whose sheltered life is ended when a World War I pilot (Chris Pine) crashlands on the Amazon's isolated island home and tells of the conflict raging in the outside world. Princess Diana (Gadot) volunteers to suit up, return the outsider and see what she can do about stopping this War to End All Wars. Believe it or not, Warner Bros. is finally getting a handle on this superhero thing--thanks, in large part, to director Patty Jenkins (Monster), who handles the character with care, intelligence and a sense of adventure. 141 minutes PG-13.

SECOND RUN^ back to top


Alien: Covenant

Ridley Scott steers further from the mindbending but distracting mythology of 2012's Prometheus and tries to recapture the claustrophobic horror of his 1979 original Alien. The crew of a colony ship, bound for a remote planet, stumbles across a seemingly perfect world. Unfortunately, it's the old home planet of the Engineers, the alien giants who created the space age superweapon known as the Xenomorphs. It isn't long before the crew is on the receiving end of some acid-blooded alien carnage. Like Prometheus before it, this prequel has got way too many ideas, but at least it delivers on the chestbursting thrills. Michael Fassbender, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir and Jussie Smollett are among the rather doomed cast. 122 minutes R.

Baywatch

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Zac Efron and Alexandria Daddario star in this rude 'n' crude reboot of the "classic" (not really) T and A TV series about lifeguards. This one tries to ride the coattails of the naughty 21 Jump Street reboots, but it juvenilely jumbles up a silly crime story, endless jokes about penises and the expected David Hasselhoff cameo. 116 minutes R.

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.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

This stylized, animated comedy is based on the popular book series by Dav Pilkey. Two imaginative grade school pranksters (voiced by Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch) hypnotize their grumpy principal (Ed Helms) into thinking he's a ridiculous, underwear-clad superhero. 89 minutes PG.

Everything, Everything

Emo-minded teens will certainly fall for this drama (based on the YA book by Nicola Yoon) involving death and romance. Maddy Whittier (Amandla Stenberg from The Hunger Games) is a lonely, bookish teen who lives a sheltered life because she is fatally allergic to everything. When she meets and falls in love with the cute new boy next door (Nick Robinson from Jurassic World), the two embark on a potentially dangerous but life-affirming road trip. 96 minutes PG-13.

The Fate of the Furious

This eighth entry into the hyperbombastic Fast and Furious franchise finds car thief turned hero Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) shockingly double-crossing his mixed family of spies/thieves/superheroes/whatever they're supposed to be for evil terrorist Charlize Theron. The increasingly crowded cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriquez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Kurt Russell, Luke Evans and Scott Eastwood. Fans, of course, will go ape shit. 136 minutes PG-13.

It Comes At Night

This grimly apocalyptic drama sheds gory horror for a lethal dose of paranoia and xenophobia. Writer-director Trey Edward Shults last gave us the ultra-indie, aged hippie dramedy Krisha--which basically starred his friends and family. He goes in a very different direction here, offering slow-burning tension and ambiguous dread. A husband (Joel Edgerton, Animal Kingdom), his wife (Carmen Ejogo, Selma) and their teenage son are hiding out at an isolated home in the woods, shotguns and gas masks at the ready. Apparently (we can only assume) the world has been devastated by some kind of viral zombie plague. But when a young family shows up on their doorstep begging for help, our protagonists' self-centered resolve is tested. This small-cast, single-set thriller is minimalist, but absorbing. It's also the "feel bad" story of the year. 97 minutes R.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Writer-director Guy Ritchie messed mercilessly with the traditional story of Sherlock Holmes in those two movies starring Robert Downey Jr.--but they still managed to be fun action flicks. So it's no big surprise to see him revamping the King Arthur myth in ways we've never imagined. Here, we see young Arthur (Charlie Hunnam from "Sons of Anarchy") as a con man/gangster in his pre-king days. (Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels roots are showing.) Eventually, he pulls a sword out of a stone, and we get an insane orgy of special effects that wouldn't be out of place in a Dungeons & Dragons movie. It's hip, it's cool, it's modern. It's like an MMA music video crossed with Lord of the Rings. This ain't your father's King Arthur, no siree! Ritchie really hopes you like this one, because he's planning to make five more of them. 126 minutes PG-13.

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.

Lowriders

Gabriel Chavarria ("East Los High") and Damián Bichir ("Weeds") headline this macho melodrama about a young graffiti artist caught between his father's obsession with lowrider car culture, his ex-felon brother and his need for self-expression. Amid the tightlipped father-son conflict, we get lots of images of chopped and dropped Chevys. This one probably isn't going to be a big hit in Kentucky. Or Pennsylvania. Or Maine. Or Idaho. Or Montana. 99 minutes PG-13.
