Color Out of Space

Cult filmmaker Richard Stanley (Hardware) returns to cinemas with an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's seminal tale of cosmic horror. Nicolas Cage (still coasting on the awesome waves of Mandy) stars as a simple family man fighting off mutant extraterrestrial organisms after a meteorite lands on his rural farm. Visually, things get pretty psychedelic. And Cage is more than happy to take things way over the top. 110 minutes R. (Opens Saturday 2/15)

Cunningham

The legendary Merce Cunningham's artistic evolution is traced over three decades of "risk and discovery"--from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the world's most visionary choreographers of modern dance. Expect plenty of archival footage. 93 minutes Unrated. (Opens Monday 2/17)

Downhill

Downhill

A middle-aged couple (Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus) are doing their best to enjoy a family vacation at an upscale Austrian ski resort. But when an avalanche threatens the family's safety--and dad responds by ditching everybody and making a run for it--the seemingly stable marriage is sorely tested. Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (who did wonderful work adapting The Descendants to the big screen) falter a bit here, adding little to Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund's uncomfortably amusing 2014 original. The comedy is amped up a skoch, but the simmering emotional tension is replaced with raised voices and angry arguments. FULL REVIEW: Icy European dramedy gets watered down stateside by Devin D. O’Leary (2/13/2020). 86 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 2/13)

Earth

Somewhere between ecological study and abstract art project, this documentary looks at seven locations around the world that humans have transformed on a grand scale. We witness entire mountains being moved in California, a tunnel being sliced through a rock in Italy, an open-air mine in Hungary, a marble quarry in Italy, a copper mine in Spain, a radioactive waste dump in Germany and a tar sand landscape in Canada. All are first explored as abstract images, shapes gouged into the ground. But as director Nikolaus Geyrhalter pushes closer, he focuses in on the sheer scale of the environmental damage and technological change exhibited by these sites. 115 minutes Unrated. (Opens Monday 2/17)

Fantasy Island

Remember "Fantasy Island"? Well, forget it. This teen-leaning horror cheapie from Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Insidious, Sinister, Truth or Dare, Happy Death Day, Ouija) sends Lucy Hale ("Pretty Little Liars") and a bunch of young folks to a magical tropical island that promises to make their fondest dreams come true, but actually brings their darkest nightmares to life instead. (You're not gonna earn stars on Yelp with that business plan, guys.) The film also replaces Ricardo Montalban with Michael Peña (Ant-Man). I mean, c'mon. 110 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 2/14)

Patterns of Evidence: The Red Sea Miracle

From the makers of Patterns of Evidence: Exodus and Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy comes this "faith-based documentary" (those two things are kind of at odds, but we'll let it lie) "proving" that God parted the waters of the Red Sea when Moses and the Israelites were trapped by Pharaoh's army. Let's just say the filmmaker's theories don't jibe with mainstream archaeologists, Egyptologists, anthropologists, historians, etc. 150 minutes Unrated. (Opens Tuesday 2/18)

She falls in love with a young fireman who saves her live, but he soon perishes in an accident at sea.

Yup, that's Jim Carrey returning to the big screen after a four-year hiatus as Dr. Robotnik. And yeah, this is based on the popular Sega video game from 1991. The hedgehog is computer-animated.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

Jim Carrey stars as Joel, a shy, introverted artist who finds out that his ex-girlfriend (Kate Winslet) has just had all her memories of him erased. Bitter and broken-hearted, our protagonist signs up for the same procedure. While a pair of techno-geeks (Elijah Wood and Mark Ruffalo) try to brainwash him, Joel realizes that he doesn't want to let go of his memories--good and bad--and fights to keep them alive in his own brain. There are elements of comedy and fantasy, but this is one of the most authentic love stories ever made, a bittersweet look at the beauty and the pain that goes into a relationship. 108 minutes R.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

New director Alfonso Cuarón (Y Tu Mamá Tambián) understands the dark, Roald Dahl-inspired humor of Rowling's work. Several of the cinematic sequences (such as the thrilling "Night Bus" ride) actually surpass Rowling's source material. Too bad the story is one of Rowling's least cinematic. It's basically a transitional tale, introducing a whole bunch of crucial characters, but not really doing much with them. 136 minutes PG-13.

Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Quentin Tarantino's portmanteau-style masterpiece about crime, punishment and vanilla millkshakes returns to the big screen. Feel free to quote along. Odds are, you already know all the dialogue. See also: I Like to Watch (Instantly): Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction (08/29/2011). 154 minutes R.

Stripes (1981)

Bill Murray, John Candy and Harold Ramis star in this comedy about a group of dissatisfied friends who quit their jobs to join the army. You'd better believe hijinks ensue. 106 minutes R.

True Romance (1993)

Tony Scott (Top Gun) directed this off-kilter crime romance based on a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino. Nerdy Elvis fan Clarence (Christian Slater) falls in love with a prostitute named Alabama (Patricia Arquette), and the two end up on a cross-country run after killing her pimp and accidentally taking off with a suitcase full of cocaine. 116 minutes R.
Guild Cinema

Urban Cowboy (1980)

John Travolta trades disco for country music in this trend-hopping romantic drama. The film briefly sparked a rise in popularity of the Pasadena, Texas bar Gilley's, owned by country singer Mickey Gilley. Debra Winger rides a mechanical bull. So there's that. 132 minutes PG.
Flix Brewhouse

Valentine's Day (2010)

Former sitcom guru Garry Marshall ("Happy Days") herds up a whole bunch of Hollywood stars (Julia Roberts, Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx, Jessica Alba, Shirley MacLaine, Taylor Lautner) and lets them run loose through a random collection of love stories. The results are sappy, contrived and predictable--perfect for the holiday they're named after but about as appealing as a stale box of chocolate-covered cherries once Feb. 14 has come and gone. 125 minutes PG-13.

The Wedding Singer (1998)

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore star in this comedy about a cheesy wedding singer who falls in love with a waitress at the reception hall where he works. Unfortunately, they're both engaged to other (terrible) people. At some point, somebody turned this into a Broadway musical. 96 minutes PG-13.

1917

Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road, Skyfall) directs the epic and technically ingenious tale of World War I. Two young British privates are given the impossible mission of delivering a message deep within enemy territory, preventing 1,600 young soldiers from walking into a trap. This entire film, inspired by a true historical incident, is shot and edited to appear as a single, uninterrupted take unfolding in real time. The story feels familiar, but the visuals are gripping. 119 minutes R.

Bad Boys For Life

A good 25 years after they exhausted most of the clichés of the buddy cop genre in Bad Boys, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence return for some familiar action movie shenanigans. This time around they're trying to stop the vicious leader of a Miami drug cartel. The jokes mostly revolve around the idea that, you know, they're older than they were 25 years ago. But the old-school action-comedy vibe is appropriately infectious. 123 minutes R.

Dolittle

Dolittle

Robert Downey Jr. takes on the role of Hugh Lofting's kiddy book series hero, a veterinarian who can "walk with the animals, talk with the animals, grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals." This one isn't as over-the-top bombastic as Disney's recent attempts to live-actionize old fairy tales (Oz the Great and Powerful, Maleficent). But it still allows Hollywood to do what it does best--cast random stars as the voices of animated animals (in this case, it's Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, John Cena, Tom Holland, Kumail Nanjiani and Octavia Spencer). It's a genial enough family film, but there's not a lot of effort evident in the plot, characters or jokes. FULL REVIEW: Newest version of animal-filled fable does a little by Devin D.

The Gentlemen

After a decade or so screwing around with mainstream blockbusters (Sherlock Holmes, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword, Aladdin), British filmmaker Guy Ritchie returns to the knockabout gangster sagas that he made his bones on (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; Snatch; Revolver). Here we find Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Colin Farell, Henry Golding and Hugh Grant in the amusingly macho tale of a British drug lord who tries to sell off his highly profitable criminal empire to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires.

Gretel & Hansel

Contemplative art-horror director Osgood Perkins (The Blackcoat's Daughter, I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House) tries his hand at the umpteenth reimagining of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. As usual, a couple of kids get lost in the forest and stumble across the abode of a mean old witch (Alice Krige, Star Trek: First Contact). Perkins is a compelling visual director, but he doesn't really like films in which things happen. 87 minutes PG-13.

Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey

Yup, this one kinda tanked at the box office, so Warner Bros. changed the name from Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn to Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey. Margot Robbie resurrects her popular comic book character from the decidedly rickety DC/Warner Bros. vehicle Suicide Squad. This time around the nutty troublemaker has broken up with her longtime boyfriend The Joker (explosives were involved) and has teamed up with a group of questionably moral antiheroes (including Mary Elizabeth Winstead as The Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary) in order to save a young girl from a particularly evil Gotham City crime lord (Ewan McGregor). 109 minutes R.

Jojo Rabbit

Taiki Waititi (What We Do In the Shadows, Thor: Ragnarok) writes, directs and stars (as Adolf Hitler) in this irreverent, occasionally surreal and surprisingly big-hearted dramedy. Our titular Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) is an undersized German kid who wants desperately to be a good Nazi. Unfortunately, he's way too sensitive and kindhearted. But that doesn't stop him from having conversations with his imaginary childhood friend Hitler (Waititi). But when Jojo finds a young Jewish girl hidden in the attic by his concerned mother (Scarlett Johansson), he experiences a crisis of dogma (and grows up just a little). This is a tough tonal balancing act, and Waititi nails both the silly satire and the painful drama--even if the story is ultimately a slight one. 108 minutes PG-13.

Joker

Joker

After Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill, Heath Ledger and Jared Leto put their stamp on the character, moody method actor Joaquin Phoenix tries DC's iconic villain on for size. This one swings pretty far afield of the traditional comic book origin stories, but writer-director Todd Phillips (Old School, The Hangover) offers a distinctive, Martin Scorsese-esque vision of a failed comic being disenfranchised from society and reinventing himself as an outsized supervillain for the ages.

But when a respected Pentagon staffer (Sebastian Stan From Captain America: The Winter Soldier) is tasked with investigating the Congressional Medal of Honor request for Pitsenbarger, he uncovers a high-level conspiracy behind the decades-long denial of the medal. Among the cameo-filled cast of this paper-pushing post-war drama are Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Harris, Michael Imperioli, Christopher Plummer, Diane Ladd, Peter Fonda, Amy Madigan and John Savage.

Laura Dern, Meryl Streep, Bob Odenkirk and Timothée Chalamet are the impressive cast. 135 minutes PG.

Pain & Glory

Pain & Glory

Director Pedro Almodóvar and actor Antonio Banderas get together for the seventh time. A bit more serious and a lot more mature than some of their previous outings (Labyrinth of Passions, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!), this self-reflexive rumination of the filmmaking business feels loosely inspired by Federico Fellini's confessional semi-autobiography 8 1/2. Plagued by illness both physical and mental, an aging filmmaker (Banderas) reflects back on his childhood. At the same time, he struggles to determine his legacy in the artistic community. The result is a deeply humanistic portrait of life lived (regretfully or otherwise). FULL REVIEW: Celebrated Spanish filmmaker offers “autofictional” story of celebrated Spanish filmmaker by Devin D. O’Leary (11/7/2019). 113 minutes R.

Parasite

The latest film from brilliant South Korean director Bong Joon-Ho (The Host, Mother, Snowpiercer) is a pitch-black, tragicomic thriller about a poor but loving family scraping by in a crowded "semi-basement" apartment on a grubby side street in Seoul. By chance, the family's intelligent son lands a job tutoring an upper-class teenage girl who lives in a massive modernist mansion. This sudden and vivid contrast in fortunes sets up the film's nasty, near-Gothic twists and turns (none of which should be spoiled). 131 minutes R.
