(102 Fifth St. Next to the railroad depot, 247-8133)
Red Dawn. H½ There’s wrong and then there’s wrong. This one’s up there with trying to rewrite the Quran. See, the problem is, they already made “Red Dawn” and it was awesome. Just stop it, Hollywood. Rated PG-13.
Lincoln. HHHH Daniel Day-Lewis delivers a spot-on performance as the Great Emancipator in Spielbergian splendor. Rated PG-13.
Durango Stadium 9
(Next to Durango Mall, 247-9799)
Chasing Ice. HHH (Wednesday only) National Geographic photographer James Balog crosses the Arctic with time-lapse cameras designed to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. Rated PG-13.
Playing for Keeps. HH A former soccer pro coaches his kid’s team and is introduced to the world of soccer moms. (See review this page.) Rated PG-13.
Killing Them Softly. HH Brad Pitt is a hitman who has to do an internal “investigation” of a mob poker game gone bad. Rated R.
The Collection. (No Ebert rating.) A home invader becomes a hero to a family kept captive by a psychopath who’s turned their country home into a house of horrors. Rated R.
Life of Pi. HHHH (In standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge) An Indian zookeeper’s son is stranded at sea with a boatload of wild animals, including a Bengal tiger. Rated PG.
Rise of the Guardians. HHH (In standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge) Another one of those animated things. This one’s about an evil spirit launching some cataclysm on Earth and then there are these Guardians who protect all the children. Wouldn’t have been my first choice, but whatever. Rated PG.
Breaking Dawn: Part 2. HH½ The official trailer description: “After the birth of Renesmee, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts the family in front of the Volturi.” Is it OK that I’m really glad this is finally over? Rated PG-13.
Skyfall. HHHH This time, it’s up to Bond to save MI6 itself from extinction. Never ends for the poor guy, right? Rated PG-13.
Flight. HHHH Denzel stars as an alcoholic airline pilot who pulls off a Sully-like feat of derring-do, but then questions arise as to whose fault it was that things got so bad in the first place. Rated R.
Wreck-It Ralph. HHH (In standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge) Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) is a video-game doormat who goes on a spree across the arcade wreaking havoc. Rated PG.
