21st Century Stone Age

Local geologist Steve Maynard is the man behind this in-development documentary series taking viewers on a journey of "adventure and discovery" to learn "the fascinating story of human ingenuity and the rocks that we transform into civilization." In this episode, Maynard heads to a quarry where rock is extracted to examine its geologic origins. He also looks at polished stone and its uses in construction as well as modern processes for fabrication and their roots in ancient techniques. Maynard is on hand to participate in a post-film Q&A and to hand out doorprizes from Mama's Minerals. This special screening is a fundraiser to help launch the continuing "21st Century Stone Age" TV series. 75 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 12/15)

Anna and the Apocalypse

In this self-proclaimed "zombie Christmas musical," an undead apocalypse is threatening the sleepy town of Little Haven. And to add insult to injury, it's Christmas time. This forces high schooler Anna (Ella Hunt) and her friends to fight, slash and (yes) sing their way to survival. If a sprightly mixture of High School Musical and Shaun of the Dead sounds amusing, then this Scottish-made mash-up is for you. 93 minutes R. (Opens Friday 12/14)

Emma Stone waits her turn

The Favourite

In early 19th-century England, sickly Queen Anne (Olivia Colman from "The Crown" and "Peepshow") is expertly manipulated by her BFF, Lady Sarah (Rachel Wiesz). Things change, however, when Sarah's impoverished cousin (Emma Stone) shows up and makes a play for the Queen's affections. This three-way power struggle plays out like a nastier (and, as it happens, far funnier) version of Dangerous Liaisons. Director Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) offers up his most accessible, least surreal film to date with this delightfully wicked costume dramedy. FULL REVIEW: Mean and nasty historical drama makes ambition a courtly enterprise by Devin D. O’Leary (12/13/2018). 119 minutes R. (Opens Friday 12/14)

In this unique, hybrid documentary, five young children in Swaziland—orphans of the AIDS epidemic—turn their past trauma into creative fuel for an original, collective fairy tale. Basically, the kids are learning to spin their own oral folk tales at the Likhaya Lemphilo Lensha orphanage where they live.

Mortal Engines

Based on Philip Reeve's steampunk-ish YA novels, this sci-fi fantasy takes us to post-apocalyptic Europe, devastated by a catastrophic world war. Long-destroyed cities have been rebuilt at sea and in the air. But on land, the biggest cities have been reconstructed as towering, tank-like monstrosities crawling their way across the landscape and waging war on smaller, slower towns. In the mobile metropolis of London, two young people (Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan) meet and try to stop a conspiracy involving an ancient weapon of incalculable power. 128 minutes PG-13.

In this original-looking animated film (employing a gritty, cell-shaded 3D style), young Miles Morales becomes the Spider-Man of his reality after he crosses paths with super-powered spider folk from all sorts of Marvel Comics universes. We get Jake Johnson ("New Girl") as plain old Peter Parker, Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) as Spider-Gwen, Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir and John Mulaney ("Saturday Night Live") as Peter Porker the Spectacular Spider-Ham. This is some deep-dive Marvel Comics mythology, but screenwriter Phil Lord (The Lego Movie) keeps things energetic and fun. 117 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 12/13)

Vox Lux

Following a tragic school shooting, two sisters pen a tribute song and become musical superstars because of it. Years later, one of them (now played by Natalie Portman) is still trying to do the pop diva thing. But a fading career, a troubled daughter and a second, eerily familiar school shooting threaten to derail her career. Portman grounds writer-director Brady Corbet's second film with her riveting, give-it-all-you've-got performance. And Corbet certainly knows how to set an over-the-top electropop spectacle. But the plot (two of them, really) is a jagged puzzle-box assembly. 110 minutes R. (Opens Friday 12/14)

Christmas Evil (1980)

This seedy but psychologically minded 1980 slasher flick set the groundwork for a lot of seasonal horror flicks. A toy factory worker, mentally scarred as a child thanks to some Santa-based trauma, suffers a nervous breakdown. Naturally, this causes him to dress up in a beard and red suit and start "punishing" various naughty people. Mostly by killing them. John Waters says it's his favorite Christmas movie. 100 minutes R.
Guild Cinema

Elf (2003)

Will Ferrell scored a perennial favorite with this seasonal comedy about a human adopted by Santa's elves who is sent to America to search for his biological roots. Occasionally absurd and often a bit too Hollywood sweet, the film is kept afloat by Ferrell's energetic performance. Plus, it's the film's 15th anniversary! 95 minutes PG.

It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

The Polar Express (2004)

Chris Van Allsburg's gorgeous, award-winning children's book comes to life in a computer-animated fantasy directed by Robert Zemeckis (Cast Away, Forrest Gump, Back to the Future). The simple story has a skeptical kid boarding a magical train to the North Pole and meeting Santa Claus. The "photo-realistic" CGI was faintly impressive from a technical perspective back in 2004, but is still flat-out creepy to watch. 100 minutes G.

Wild Strawberries (1957)

If you aren't familiar with the works of Swedish cinema legend Ingmar Bergman, then this emotional 1957 masterpiece is a good place to start. If you are familiar with the man's work, then you know exactly what I'm talking about. The film relates, in flashback, the life of an elderly professor as he travels across country to receive an honorary degree. 90 minutes

At Eternity's Gate

Painter-turned-director Julian Schnabel (Basquiat, Before Night Falls, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) directs this highly artistic biopic starring Willem Dafoe as Vincent van Gogh. Shot on handheld cameras in the south of France, the film captures the last days of van Gogh as he battles mental illness to produce some of his most iconic paintings. Elemental and unapologetically romantic, the film revels in the glimmering sunlight and glowing wheat fields of van Gogh's world. 110 minutes Unrated.

High Ridge

“Nope, still not drunk enough.”

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Comedienne Melissa McCarthy sheds her bright persona to play frumpy, downbeat author Lee Israel in this tragicomic biopic. Around 1990, Lee found her brand of high-tone biographies out of style. Broke, bitter and frequently drunk, she took to forging witty letters from dead literary figures. Oddly enough, this gave her great satisfaction as a writer (as well as a way to pay the rent). Nicole Holofcenter (Lovely & Amazing, Enough Said) contributes the alternately tough and tender screenplay, which adds some heavy psychological depth to Lee's petty-outrageous tale of forgery. But it's McCarthy prickly performance that rings true. FULL REVIEW: F is for Fraudulence by Devin D. O’Leary (11/8/2018). 106 minutes R.

Creed II

Writer-director Ryan Coogler and star Michael B. Jordan's savvy reboot of the Rocky series (focusing on the son of Rocky Balboa's old rival) returns with the next, logical follow-up. Seems that young Adonis Creed (Jordan) is back in the ring and battling the son of Rocky's other major opponent, Russian monster Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren—who, like Sylvester Stallone, is also hanging out for a bit). 130 minutes PG-13.

Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch

Dr. Seuss' The Grinch

I mean, we already had the TV version narrated by Boris Karloff (1966) and the live-action version with Jim Carrey (2000). So why not a 3D CGI-animated version? Here, Brit Benedict Cumberbatch voices our hairy party pooper, stealing Christmas from all the Whos down in Whoville. Angela Lansbury voices the Mayor of Whoville. Pharrell Williams narrates. It's from the studio that gave us the Despicable Me franchise and The Secret Life of Pets. FULL REVIEW: You’re a mediocre one, Mr. Grinch by Devin D. O’Leary (11/15/2018). 90 minutes PG.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

The first Harry Potter spinoff movie ended with intriguing villain Colin Farrell transforming into Johnny Depp in a crazy wig, makeup and contact lenses. Frankly, the world didn't need another over-the-top Johnny Depp character. But we've got it anyway. Seems that wizarding bigwig Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) has sent shy magical zoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) off on a quest to find a missing magic-user before evil Gellert Grindlewald (Depp) does … eh, I don't know. This convoluted tale is all set-up and exposition, feeling exactly like what it is: chapter two of an already overly long five-part story. 134 minutes PG-13.

Green Book

A working-class, Italian-American bouncer (Viggo Mortenesen) from New York City finds himself acting as chauffeur for a wealthy black concert pianist (Mahershala Ali) as he goes on a tour of the segregated Jim Crow South in 1962. This family friendly tale of discrimination clearly flips the script on the Driving Miss Daisy formula. But director Peter Farrelly (who, along with his brother, gave us Dumb and Dumber and There's Something About Mary) directs with compassion and humor. 130 minutes PG-13.

La Callas herself

Maria By Callas

First-time documentary director Tom Volf uses Maria Callas' own words (interviews, archival footage and her letters and diaries, read by French actress Fanny Ardant) to explain the famed opera diva's "tempestuous" life and career. The film is constructed by a fan for fans. Callas' viewpoint is unchallenged, and she was always notoriously tightlipped about her personal life (including her lifelong affair with Aristotle Onassis). But the frequent interludes, featuring Callas' most famous arias, are a haunting reminder/introduction to her fierce talent.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

No one who has ever sat through a performance of The Nutcracker has done so for the slim-to-nonexistent story (something about a little girl opening Christmas presents, a dancing nutcracker who's really a prince, a bunch of evil mice and a Sugar Plum Fairy). Here, Disney tries to amp up the fantasy to Oz The Great and Powerful levels. This involves lots and lots and lots of computer animation. Mackenzie Foy (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) stars. Helen Mirren, Kiera Knightley and Morgan Freeman are in there somewhere too, wearing crazy wigs. 99 minutes PG.

No “Bad Romance” for Cooper and Gaga

A Star Is Born

Bradley Cooper (the Hangover films) turns writer-director-star in this remake of the remake of the remake of the remake of A Star Is Born. Cooper plays the burned-out stadium rock star who discovers a golden-voiced ingénue (Lady Gaga) whom he mentors to stardom. (Only to find himself eclipsed and drowning his sorrows in booze.) Lady Gaga is a revelation as both a natural actress and as a stripped-down singer. Unfortunately, the film's first half (featuring lots of romance, concert footage and dreams coming true) is better than the second half (all bad behavior, melodrama and weeping).

The Old Man & The Gun

The Old Man and The Gun

Robert Redford's (allegedly) final film is this extremely low-key crime flick about a seventysomething dude who breaks out of prison and goes on a bank robbery spree. Based (loosely) on a true story, it sounds sprightly and exciting. But writer-director David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints, A Ghost Story) wants to keep this as minimalist a cinematic exercise as possible. The film trades well on Redford's charisma, and he gets some nice scenes with romantic interest Sissy Spacek.At the end of the day, though, the film is much more about quiet conversations in small diners than gunfights and car chases.

Overlord

During World War II, a group of American soldiers (including Kurt Russell's offspring Wyatt) is shot down over Nazi-occupied France, but must complete its mission or the invasion of Normandy can't happen.

The elements of this action-horror outing may be familiar, but at least the director (Australian up-and-comer Julius Avery) treats it seriously, eschewing camp for intense B-movie thrills. 109 minutes R.

Unbroken: Path to Redemption

Producer-director Angelina Jolie's well-meaning, Oscar-nominated 2014 biopic gets a belated follow-up with this unofficial, "faith-based" sequel. The original Unbroken followed the story of USA Olympian and American Army officer Louis Zamperini, who survived 47 days in a raft when his bomber crashed into the ocean during World War II. After that he spent time in a series of Asian Prisoner of War camps. What Jolie's film left out—and this sequel makes abundantly clear—is that, following his return to America after the war, Zamperini converted to evangelical Christianity while attending one of Billy Graham's church revivals. None of the original cast returns, but evangelist preacher Will Graham does play his own grandfather. So there's that. 98 minutes PG-13.
