Believe

A small-town businessman going through tough financial times tries to decide between selling the family business and funding his town's annual Christmas pageant. It's a tough choice--until he meets a joyful, Jesus-loving boy who teaches everybody to believe in miracles. The star of this faith-based drama, Ryan O'Quinn, was the uncredited narrator in 2009's Eyeborgs and played "police officer" in the awful 2014 remake of 2000's already awful Left Behind. 139 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 12/2)

Die Hard

If this isn't your favorite Christmas movie, it should be. Young Bruce Willis (circa 1988) is a cop who flies to Los Angeles to reunite with his estranged wife for the holidays. Unfortunately, she's inside a towering office building that's been taken over by a calculating German terrorist (the incredible Alan Rickman). This one pretty much wrote the template for modern action films and is still highly entertaining from start to finish. 131 minutes R. (Opens Friday 12/2)
Flix Brewhouse Fri 9:00

The Greasy Strangler

This scuzzy, no-budget cult flick follows the deviant adventures of a father-and-son duo who run a "disco walking tour" of Los Angeles. When the socially awkward pair fall for the same "alluring" woman, a brutal competition for affection is kindled. Also, there's a dude strangling people. It's all connected. At its best this cartoonishly cringeworthy horror comedy plays out something like John Waters directing a Troma film for Adult Swim. 93 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 12/2)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30

Incarnate

Chistmas is coming, so now is as good a time as any to whip out another one of those cheap exorcism dramas. Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Carice Van Houten ("Game of Thrones") and David Mazouz ("Gotham") star in this standard-issue tale about a demon-possessed kid for director Brad Peyton (who gave us the equally terrifying Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore). 91 minutes PG-13.

Magnus

This surprisingly accessible documentary takes a look into the life of Norwegian Magnus Carlsen, widely known as the "Mozart of chess." Surrounded by a supportive family from a young age, this objectively "normal" genius embarked on a rapid-fire quest to become a chess grandmaster. Unlike classical masters like Bobby Fischer, Magus is no tortured genius. Rather he's a charismatic and creative newcomer, who could just be changing the face of the game. 78 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 12/4)

Nob Hill Oral Project

Director Gary Eyster and videographer Joel Derek Ortiz have assembled this project documenting the memories of 15 people who were part of Albuquerque's Nob Hill in its early days.

Notes on Blindness

After losing his sight, John Hull went on a quest to fully comprehend the concept of "blindness." Starting in 1983, he kept an audio diary of his loss, rebirth and renewal. Published in book form in 1990, the diary was proclaimed "a masterpiece" by neurologist Oliver Sacks. Here, documentarians Peter Middleton and James Spinney help viewers understand and visualize the world of blindness by recreating and dramatizing certain key moments in Hull's life. 90 minutes (Opens Sunday 12/4)

Scrooged

Bill Murray and a cast of funny characters (David Johansen, Carol Kane, Bobcat Goldthwait) take on Dickens in this modern-day retelling of "A Christmas Carol" from 1988. 101 minutes PG-13. (Opens Wednesday 12/7)

Spirited Away

Master animator Hayao Miyazaki won a deserved Oscar for this magnificent dark fantasy about a young girl lost in a spirit world filled with ghosts and witches. The Alice in Wonderland-meets-The Brothers Grimm storyline lifts this far above typical kiddie film fare. Freakishly inventive and filled with jaw-dropping flights of visual fancy, this cross-cultural gem is an animation classic that begs to be seen. Back on the big screen for its 15th anniversary! 125 minutes PG. (Sunday 12/4)

Viva

From Cuba comes this raw, beautiful drama about a shy Havana hairdresser who takes a job styling wigs for drag queens at an impoverished urban nightclub. Our protagonist dreams of taking the stage one day himself--at least until his hard-drinking ex-con of a father shows up, setting off some serious family drama. 100 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 12/1)

The Accountant

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.

Arrival

Denis Villeneuve (best known for such hard-hitting crime films as Prisoners and Sicario) directs this sci-fi mystery in which a humble linguist (Amy Adams) is recruited by the military to figure out what a bunch of strange alien devices are trying to tell us. This is thoughtful, smartly assembled speculation, laced with fear, tension and a major sense of discovery. 116 minutes PG-13.

Doctor Strange

Marvel finally unleashes the magic on screen with its first mystical superhero. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as an egotistical surgeon who loses the use of his hands in an accident and embarks on a journey of healing--only to wind up as the apprentice to a magical superbeing (Tilda Swinton, natch) in Nepal. The trippy visuals and unpredictable storyline prove these Marvel superhero movies still have plenty of originality in store for audiences. 115 minutes PG-13.

High school life gets even more complicated for a popular but overly dramatic teenager (Hailee Steinfeld from True Grit) after her best friend starts dating her older brother. First-time writer-director Kelly Fremon Craig is responsible for this deft and occasionally dark dramedy which tries to turn the John Hughes "lovable outsiders" trope on its ear. 104 minutes R.

This vibrant portrait of Australian adolescence checks in on a young girl on the edge of obscure loserdom, whose life is suddenly thrown into turmoil when mom and dad throw her a surprise 15th birthday party--and invite the entire school. Described as "equal measures Wes Anderson and Lewis Carroll," the film journeys into the absurd and often scary depths of the teenage mind, courtesy of former theater director Rosemary Myers. 77 minutes Unrated.

Hacksaw Ridge

Mel Gibson (yeah, that Mel Gibson) directs this true story about a World War II army medic who served during the battle of Okinawa, despite being a conscientious objector. Even though Desmond Doss (played here by The Amazing Spider-Man's Andrew Garfield) refused to carry a weapon, he saved the lives of many soldiers and was eventually awarded a Medal of Honor. Gibson is in remarkably good territory here, giving audiences a vigorously old-fashioned tale of heroism. 131 minutes R.

Little Sister

A confused young nun (Addison Timlin) reluctantly returns home after receiving a letter from her estranged mother informing her that her brother is back. Upon arriving in Asheville, N.C., she finds her old bedroom exactly as she left it: painted black and covered in goth posters. Mom and dad (Ally Sheedy and Peter Hedges) are glad to see her, but her big brother is living as a recluse in the guest house after returning from the Iraq war. This dysfunctional family comedy is sweet, cynical and adds a slight political bent to its tale of redemption and reconciliation. 91 minutes Unrated.

Moana

Dwayne Johnson and Auli'i Cravalho provide the voices for this Polynesian fantasy story which comes to us courtesy of the animators at Disney.

Moonlight

Moonlight

Like an inner city version of Boyhood, this engrossing indie drama drifts through the life of a confused Miami kid. By covering three separate sections of his life (and using three different actors), the film shows us how young Chiron comes of age while coming to grips with his sexuality. Though it is sounds rather specific to the gay and African-American experience in America, this slow, patient tone poem vividly expresses what it's like to struggle with who and what you are--no matter what your background happens to be.

SECOND RUN^ back to top


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.

Writer-director Fede Alvarez (the remake of Evil Dead) isn't the first horror film director to be inspired by Terence Young's 1967 thriller Wait Until Dark (about a blind woman stalked by thugs in her own house). Still, he does a nifty job of flipping the script in this nail-biting entry. Stephen Lang (Avatar) is the blind old man targeted by a group of amateur thieves. Little do they know he's a murderously resourceful vet perfectly capable of trapping them inside his home, cutting off the lights and slaughtering them one by one. It's basically a gimmicky home invasion thriller, but Alvarez keeps the action quick, brutal and relentless. 88 minutes R.

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.

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.

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.

Sully

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.
