NEW MOVIES!  FEBRUARY 7 - FEBRUARY 13, 2017

TROLLS (USA, PG) - I had so many of these puffy-haired dolls as a kid and loads of My Little Ponies, too. Then they magically disappeared. My mother says she doesn’t know where they went but I ask her about it every year because I know one day when I'm old enough she'll admit to throwing them away.
DIRECTED BY: Walt Dohrn / Mike Mitchell
VOICES BY: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, Gwen Stefani
METASCORE: 56, based on 32 Critics
LOVING (USA, PG-13) - This is the story of an interracial couple from Virginia in 1958. Their marriage was considered illegal and after they were arrested, they contested it and took their legal battle all the way to the Supreme Court.
DIRECTED BY: Jeff Nichols
STARRING: Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga, Marton Csokas, Nick Kroll, Michael Shannon
METASCORE: 79, based on 45 Critics
ALMOST CHRISTMAS (USA, PG-13) - This is another one of those disfunktional Christmas movies that I'll shamelessly watch once a year. Predictable and full of dramedy, this promises to be.
DIRECTED BY: David E. Talbert
STARRING: Kimberly Elise, Mo'Nique, Nicole Ari Parker, Gabrielle Union, Keri Hilson, Jessie Usher, Danny Glover, Omar Epps, John Michael Higgins, Romany Malco
METASCORE: 55, based on 27 Critics
DESIERTO (Mexico, R) - Some Mexican immigrants are trying to get over the border to the US. They encounter a racist vigilante cowboy type who thinks people are even more fun to hunt than coyotes. This was filmed before Trump got elected but seems pretty timely, what with the whole impending wall thing.
DIRECTED BY: Jonas Cuaron
STARRING: Gael García Bernal, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Alondra Hidalgo, Diego Cataño
METASCORE: 51, based on 24 Critics
THE EAGLE HUNTRESS (UK, G) - A Mongolian girl is training hard to become the first woman eagle huntress in several generations. That’s pretty neat, I guess. Makes for a super sweet documentary, anyway.
DIRECTED BY: Otto Bell
NARRATED BY: Daisy Ridley
METASCORE: 72, based on 26 Critics
AMERICAN PASTORAL (USA, R) – It’s the ‘60s and an all-American former jock and his beautiful wife seem to have it all. Then their teenage daughter gets in serious trouble during an anti-war protest. Now it's all gonna fall apart.
DIRECTED BY: Ewan McGregor
STARRING: Ewan McGregor, Jennifer Connelly, Dakota Fanning, Peter Riegert, Rupert Evans, Uzo Aduba, Molly Parker, David Strathairn
METASCORE: 43, based on 30 Critics
THE TAKE (UK, R) – A thief steals a bag with a bomb in it and accidentally blows some people up. Guilt-ridden, he teams up with a CIA agent to outsmart terrorists in Paris.
DIRECTED BY: James Watkins
STARRING: Idris Elba, Richard Madden, Charlotte Le Bon, Eriq Ebouaney, José Garcia
METASCORE: 48, based on 16 Critics
CAMERAPERSON (USA, Not Rated) - This aptly named documentary is about Kristen Johnson, who makes documentaries. Instead of it being about other stuff, it's about her. Seems a little meta to me – like singing a song about singing a song.
DIRECTED BY: Kirsten Johnson
METASCORE: 86, based on 21 Critics
THE 9TH LIFE OF LOUIS DRAX (Canada, R) - After a fall that nearly cost him his life, a little boy goes to see a psychologist. The psychologist is intrigued by the boy’s mysterious and puzzling nature. The lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur.
DIRECTED BY: Alexandre Aja
STARRING: Jamie Dornan, Sarah Gadon, Aiden Longworth, Oliver Platt, Molly Parker, Julian Wadham, Jane McGregor, Barbara Hershey, Aaron Paul
METASCORE: 41, based on 20 Critics
FRANK & LOLA (USA, Not Rated) - This is a modern day noir. With scenes in Paris and Las Vegas, this psychosexual flick is sure to make you feel bad for poor schmuck Michael Shannon who probably had it coming to him.
DIRECTED BY: Matthew Ross
STARRING: Michael Shannon, Imogen Poots, Michael Nyqvist, Justin Long, Emmanuelle Devos, Rosanna Arquette
METASCORE: 56, based on 18 Critics
^LITTLE SISTER (USA, Not Rated) - A young nun is trying hard to commit to that lifestyle. But first she has to go back to her childhood home where her old room has been left just the way she had it - clad with Goth paraphernalia and metal swag. I think she was better off before the convent but that's just my dark opinion.
DIRECTED BY: Zach Clark
STARRING: Addison Timlin, Ally Sheedy, Keith Poulson, Peter Hedges, Barbara Crampton
METASCORE: 73, based on 13 Critics
*ANTIBIRTH (USA, Not Rated) - Horror comes to a strange drug-fueled community where a stoner named Lou finds herself in more trouble than usual. After a night of indulgence she wakes up with some weird symptoms and some crazy visions. Is Lou pregnant, dying or just hung over? Are aliens somehow involved?
DIRECTED BY: Danny Perez
STARRING: Natasha Lyonne, Chloë Sevigny, Meg Tilly, Mark Webber, Maxwell McCabe-Lokos, Emmanuel Kabongo
METASCORE: 56, based on 12 Critics
BURN COUNTRY (USA, Not Rated) - A war journalist gets kicked out of Afghanistan and takes up residency in small town Northern Cali. After taking a job at a local newspaper and doing some articles on local crime, he discovers corruption and it becomes clear that danger is afoot.
DIRECTED BY: Ian Olds
STARRING: James Franco, Melissa Leo, Rachel Brosnahan, Dominic Rains, Thomas Jay Ryan, James Oliver Wheatley
METASCORE: 60, based on 9 Critics
HARRY AND SNOWMAN (USA, Not Rated) - This is a biographical documentary about an immigrant named Harry. He rescues a horse from being slaughtered. Then he becomes a jockey and races said rescue horse.
DIRECTED BY: Ron Davis
METASCORE: 74, based on 4 Critics
 
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK (USA, R) - A bunch of superheroes with super powers team up to fight super villains with super powers of their very own.
DIRECTED BY: Jay Oliva
