Alive and Kicking

This foot-stomping documentary takes an intimate, insider's view of the nostalgic swing dance world. Though it captures the musical history, the film is most concerned with the modern-day practitioners of the art--from senior citizens to teenagers--and the way in which they use dance as an expression of joy and happiness, despite whatever troubles they are facing in their lives. 84 minutes Unrated. (Opens Wednesday 5/3)

Baahubali 2: The Conclusion

Director S.S. Rajamouli finally delivers part two of his epic Indian fantasy from 2015. When we last left Mahendra Baahubali (Prabhas), 10th century super-warrior and long-lost son of the king of Mahishmati, he had defied the evil emperor and rediscovered his long-lost heritage. Here, he engages in a whole bunch more massive, bloody fights involving swords, spears, chariots, horses, elephants, you name it. This one's billed as the most expensive Indian film ever made (at $40 million). In Telugu or Tamil with English subtitles. 171 minutes Unrated. (Opens Thursday 4/27)

The Battle of Algiers

Gillo Pontecorvo's near-legendary 1966 account of the bloodiest revolution in modern history feels surprisingly timely in today's war-torn world. The film was originally commissioned by the Algerian government and features a surprisingly unbiased account of events. The French military, smarting from the loss in Vietnam, came home and found itself facing the threat of separatists in Algeria. While the Algerians placed bombs in soda shops, the French government tortured and killed hundreds. Today, the film reminds us that no one emerges from war innocent, unscathed and "victorious." Though a fictionalized recreation of events, the film features lots of footage shot at the time of the revolt. A real landmark. 120 minutes Unrated. (Monday 5/1)

The Circle

Though it looks familiar (Eagle Eye, Enemy of the State), this high-tech drama is based on the paranoia-filled 2013 novel by Dave Eggers. Emma Watson stars as a recent college grad who goes to work for a powerful tech company called "The Circle." There, she uncovers a nefarious plot on the part of the company's seemingly kindly boss (Tom Hanks) to gather 24/7 surveillance information on every person in the world. Bill Paxton, Karen Gillan and Glenne Headly costar. 110 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 4/27)

Cult filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial) writes and directs this wonderfully odd sci-fi comedy about a New York party gal (Anne Hathaway) whose boyfriend (Dan Stevens) gets fed up with her drunken shenanigans and tosses her out on her ear. She ends up back in her dinky hometown where she crosses paths with an old childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis). Lest you mistake this for a romantic comedy, our heroine soon discovers that her late-night benders correspond perfectly to the mysterious appearance of a giant monster rampaging its way through Seoul, Korea. Told you it was odd. 109 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 4/27)

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)

The Devil's Candy

From indie horror filmmaker Sean Byrne (The Loved Ones) comes this dark 'n' creepy drama about a kindly metalhead artist (Ethan Embry) who moves to a suspiciously cheap house in rural Texas with his wife (Shiri Appleby) and teenage daughter. Soon, he finds himself seized by sinister inspiration and begins painting a series of gorgeous but demonic images. Is it artistic inspiration or something nastier? Answers come in the form of the home's previous owner (Pruitt Taylor Vince), a devil-obsessed serial killer who shows up on the doorstep one very bad night. The thrash/doom soundtrack includes Slayer, Ghost, Pantera, Machine Head and Sun O)))). 79 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 4/28)

Finding Oscar

This feature-length documentary concerns the search for justice in the devastating case of Guatemala's Dos Erres massacre, in which the government allegedly committed atrocities against indigenous populations. Director Ryan Suffern focuses his attention on Oscar Alfredo Ramirez Casteneda, a 3-year-old who miraculously survived the 1982 massacre. The film (executive produced by Steven Spielberg) puts to rest the ghosts of the past and shows how--through the power of forgiveness--the future is looking brighter. 100 minutes Unrated.

But on the day before her final exams, she is brutally assaulted in an attack that could jeopardize her future. Now her helicopter father has to face a moral turning point: Should he abandon all the principles he has taught his daughter in order to ensure her future? More rough realism from director Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days). In Romanian with English subtitles. 148 minutes R. (Opens Friday 4/28)

Jurassic World

I'm not upset that Hollywood has decided to make a third Jurassic Park sequel. Because, you know, money. I am, however, ticked off that the fictional executives at InGen thought they could get away with this. Did someone at the corporation send out a memo saying, "Hey, everybody. Remember that dinosaur theme park we were trying to open? You know, the one where the tourists kept getting eaten over and over and over again? Well, we're pretty sure we've got all the kinks worked out. Fourth time's the charm!" I mean, come on. ... Ah, well, at least we've got Chris Pratt. He's cool. 124 minutes PG-13. (Opens Tuesday 5/2)

KM 31-2

Rigoberto Casteñeda offers up a belated sequel to his 2006 Mexican horror film KM 31: Kilometre 31, which I'm pretty confident you did not see. The first one dealt with a telepathic woman searching for her twin sister who had been rendered comatose in a rural auto accident involving the vengeful ghost of a dead mother. This would-be supernatural franchise is based (loosely) on the legend of La Llorona. In Spanish with English subtitles. 105 minutes R. (Opens Friday 4/28)

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.

School of Rock

A down and out musician (Jack Black) scams a job as a substitute teacher at a fancy prep school and shows the kiddies how to rock. It's written by Mike White, who gave us the sublime The Good Girl and the joyously disturbing Chuck & Buck. Plus, it's directed by Richard Linklater (Dazed & Confused). The result is a giddy, surprisingly family-friendly rock and roll romp. 108 minutes (Saturday 4/29)

Tommy's Honour

This British drama is based on the true story of the challenging relationship between "Old" Tom Morris and "Young" Tommy Morris, the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf. Tommy's talent eventually outstripped his famous father, and he went on to found the Open Championship in 1860. But evidently his personal life was a mess. Jason Connery (Sean's son) directs. Peter Mullan (War Horse), Jack Lowden ('71), Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) star. This melodramatic biopic is made by (and for) the golf obsessed. 112 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 4/27)

The Transfiguration

The Transfiguration

A lonely, movie-obsessed teenage orphan in Brooklyn (Eric Ruffin) is convinced he's a vampire who needs to kill and drink blood in order to survive. Is he correct or just crazy? He finds an unexpected friendship in an abused neighbor girl (Chloe Levine), but is it enough to quell his (perhaps imaginary) bloodlust? This downbeat, low-key debut film from Michael O'Shea namedrops dozens of its predecessors (from Nosferatu to Let the Right One In). It fails to surpass most of them, but it's got it's own indie film energy. FULL REVIEW: Gritty urban horror-drama contemplates the sad life of a vampire wannabe by Devin D. O’Leary (4/27/2017). 97 minutes Unrated. (Opens Wednesday 4/3)

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

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.

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.

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.

Get Out

Get Out

Jordan Peele (of "Key amd 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

The Belko Experiment

James Gunn (Tromeo and Juliet, The Specials, Slither, Guardians of the Galaxy) writes and Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) directs this gory horror thriller about 80 American office workers locked in a high-rise corporate office in Bogotá, Colombia, and ordered by an unknown voice to start slaughtering one another or everyone dies. This twisted variation on Battle Royale isn't as psychologically and socially prescient as it wants to be, but the bloodshed is amusingly exhilarating. John C. McGinley, Tony Goldwyn, Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn star. 88 minutes R.

For fans of goofy TV-to-movie reboots like Charlie's Angels, Starsky & Hutch, 21 Jump Street, The Dukes of Hazzard, S.W.A.T., The A-Team (and others) comes another '70s/'80s flashback. Dax Shepard (hubby to Kristen Bell and star of ... he was in Idiocracy) writes, directs and stars in this campy action comedy about motorcycle cops in California. Michael Peña (End of Watch, Ant Man) comes along to replace Erik Estrada. Baywatch is next! 100 minutes R.

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.

Fifty Shades Darker

Personally, I'd rather be waterboarded--but you're a consenting adult, and you're welcome to make your own decisions. At least this follow-up to 2015's suburban mommy porn Fifty Shades of Grey has some faint hint of a storyline. After the first film--which consisted almost entirely of contract negotiations between two toxically boring people--Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) finds herself drawn back to riding-crop-addicted businessman Christian (Jamie Dornan) and must confront a string of his angry/crazy former girlfriends. Plus, spanking. 115 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.

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.

Two passengers on an interstellar ship carrying people to a distant planet for colonization find themselves unexpectedly awakened from suspended animation--90 years too early. Can they figure out what is causing the malfunction, and can they fix it in time? Also, is it possible they can fall in love with one another amid the crisis? Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence star in this sci-fi mystery/romance that squanders a rich setting by more-or-less refusing to deal with the questionable moral twist at the center of it all. 116 minutes PG-13.

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.
