HHH An un­of­fi­cial com­pan­ion piece to Spike Lee’s “Chi-raq,” this fourth film in the “Bar­ber­shop” se­ries also is a re­sponse to the mur­der epi­demic plagu­ing in­ner-city Chicago, but it’s more hope­ful than mourn­ful. Cine­planet 16, Col­lierville Towne 16, Cor­dovacin­ema,des­o­tocin­ema16,hol­ly­wood 20 Cin­ema, Ma­jes­tic, Olive Branch Cin­ema, Palace Cin­ema, Par­adiso, Sum­mer Quar­tet Drive-in.

Cine­planet 16, Col­lierville Towne 16, Cor­dovacin­ema,des­o­tocin­ema16,hol­ly­wood 20 Cin­ema, Ma­jes­tic, Olive Branch Cin­ema, Palace Cin­ema, Par­adiso, Stage Cin­ema. The Boss (R, 99 min.)

HH Doughy new step­dad Will Fer­rell com­petes with su­per­cool bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther Mark Wahlberg for the af­fec­tions of two kids and sexy Linda Cardellini in this com­edy dis­ap­point­ment. Bartlett 10. Dead­pool (R, 108 min.) HHH This box-of­fice smash casts “Green Lan­tern” pen­i­tent Ryan Reynolds as the “X-men”-as­so­ci­ated an­ti­hero whose R-rated ver­bal and vi­o­lent ex­cesses help make this — for good and ill — the “Ted” of comic-book movies: Its snark­i­ness and no-risk “po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect” at­ti­tude are es­sen­tially ado­les­cent, but it’s lively and funny. Wolfchase Gal­le­ria Cin­ema 8. The Diver­gent Se­ries: Al­le­giant (PG-13, 121 min.) HH ½ The third (and penul­ti­mate) film in the youthskew­ing se­ries con­tains some won­der­ful science-fic­tion pro­duc­tion de­sign, but its in­creas­ingly ro­coco plot­ting

and grow­ing char­ac­ter ros­ter di­lute the power of book au­thor Veron­ica Roth’s premise, which in­tro­duced a dystopian so­ci­ety seg­re­gated by ap­ti­tude into “fac­tions.” This time, hero­ine Tris (Shai­lene Wood­ley), her boyfriend, Four (Theo James) and the other rebels cross fu­ture Chicago’s wall to es­cape into an apoc­a­lyp­tic waste­land and dis­cover the high-tech elit­ist com­mu­nity re­spon­si­ble for the fac­tion sys­tem. Col­lierville Towne 16, Wolfchase Gal­le­ria Cin­ema 8. Elvis & Nixon (R, 86 min.) HHH Es­sen­tially in­spired by the pop­u­lar­ity of a sin­gle iconic pho­to­graph, di­rec­tor Liza John­son’s ab­sur­dist com­edy casts Michael Shan­non as an odd­ball Elvis who trav­els from Grace­land to Wash­ing­ton, to of­fer his ser­vices as an un­der­cover fed­eral agent-at­large to Pres­i­dent Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey). Much of the story is seen through the Every­man eyes of Elvis buddy and for­mer Mem­phian Jerry Schilling (Alex Pet­tyfer). Par­adiso. Every­body Wants Some!! (R, 117 min.) Writer-di­rec­tor Richard Lin­klater’s com­edy about col­lege base­ball play­ers in 1980. Stu­dio on the Square. Eye in the Sky (R, 102 min.) He­len Mir­ren and Aaron Paul in a war-on-ter­ror sus­pense drama. For­est Hill 8. The 5th Wave (PG-13, 112 min.) Chloe Grace Moretz stars in yet another young adult sci-fi fran­chise starter. Bartlett 10. God’s Not Dead 2 (PG, 121 min.) A high-school teacher’s “rea­soned re­sponse” to a ques­tion about Je­sus lands her in hot wa­ter. Cine­planet 16, Col­lierville Towne 16, Cor­dova Cin­ema, Olive Branch Cin­ema, Stage Cin­ema. Gods of Egypt (PG-13, 100 min.) HH Camp flour­ishes (“I’m the god­dess of too much,” brags sexy Hathor), a few clever vis­ual fil­i­grees (molten gold runs from the wounds of in­jured deities) and an over­all aura of un­pre­ten­tious mytho (il) log­i­cal goofi­ness don’t quite com­pen­sate for the dig­i­tal te­dium of this odd sword-and­sor­cery would-be block­buster about the war be­tween oneeyed Horus (Niko­laj CosterWal­dau) and brutish Set (Ger­ard But­ler), the son of Ra, the sun god (Ge­of­frey Rush). Bartlett 10. Hello, My Name Is Doris (R, 95 min.) HH ½ Sally Field is the ti­tle ec­cen­tric, a self-ef­fac­ing of­fice drone whose outré fash­ion sense — poo­dle skirts, giant hair bows and dual pairs of eye­glasses (worn at the same time, in lieu of bi­fo­cals) — makes her pop­u­lar among the hip­sters of Wil­liams­burg af­ter the death of her mother in­spires her to leave her Staten Is­land home in un­likely ro­man­tic pur­suit of a ju­nior co-worker (Max Green­field, 35 years younger than Field). Cor­dova Cin­ema. A Holo­gram for the King (R, 97 min.) Tom Hanks is an Amer­i­can sales­man in Saudi Ara­bia in this adap­ta­tion of a novel by Dave Eg­gers. Ridge­way Cin­ema Grill.

HH ½ Lethal Se­cret Ser­vice agent Ger­ard But­ler re­turns to pro­tect Pres­i­dent Aaron Eck­hart and stab, shoot and crack much ter­ror­ist neck in this well-crafted if para­noiac se­quel to 2013’s “Olym­pus Has Fallen.” Wolfchase Gal­le­ria Cin­ema 8. Meet the Blacks (R, 93 min.) Mike Epps in a par­ody of “The Purge.” De­soto Cin­ema, Hol­ly­wood 20 Cin­ema, Ma­jes­tic, Palace Cin­ema, Par­adiso. Miles Ahead (R, 100 min.) HH ½ Cin­ema, like jazz, ben­e­fits from artists who un­der­stand both im­pro­vi­sa­tion and dis­ci­pline. Such an artist is Don Chea­dle, the pro­ducer, di­rec­tor, co-screen­writer (with Steven Baigel­man) and star of this fan­ci­ful mis­ad­ven­ture, set in 1979, near the end of Miles Davis’ six-year re­treat from pub­lic mu­sic-mak­ing, when the jazz trum­pet ge­nius was a drug ad­dict and recluse. Ridge­way Cin­ema Grill. Mir­a­cles from Heaven (PG, 109 min.) Jen­nifer Garner is a mother whose daugh­ter has a sup­pos­edly in­cur­able dis­ease in this faith-based drama. Cine­planet 16, Wolfchase Gal­le­ria Cin­ema 8. My Big Fat Greek Wed­ding 2 (PG-13, 94 min.) Nia Varda­los and John Cor­bett are back af­ter 14 years for “an even big­ger and Greeker wed­ding.” Cor­dova Cin­ema, For­est Hill 8, Sum­mer Quar­tet Drive-in, Wolfchase Gal­le­ria Cin­ema 8. The Per­fect Match (R, 96 min.) Will play­boy Ter­rence J find love with Cassie Ven­tura? Or maybe Paula Pat­ton? Bartlett 10. Race (PG-13, 134 min.) HHH A sturdy biopic, di­rec­tor Stephen Hop­kins’ hand­somely pro­duced film about the track star who broke racial bar­ri­ers as well as Olympic records fol­lows Jesse Owens (Stephan James) from his poor neigh­bor­hood in Cleve­land to Ohio State to the 1936 Ber­lin games, where he up­sets the “mas­ter race” pro­pa­ganda of the host Nazis by win­ning four gold medals. Bartlett 10. The Revenant (R, 156 min.) HHH ½ In this fron­tier epic of sur­vival and re­venge, Leonardo Di­caprio is real-life folk hero Hugh Glass; he’s mauled by a griz­zly and buried alive, but rises from his im­pro­vised grave to track his be­trayer (Tom Hardy) through a North Amer­i­can par­adise. Bartlett 10. Ride Along 2 (PG-13, 102 min.) HH ½ This agree­able for­mula buddy/cop com­edy se­quel sends scowl­ing po­lice de­tec­tive Ice Cube and com­i­cal rookie of­fi­cer Kevin Hart from At­lanta to Mi­ami dur­ing a slap­stick foot pur­suit. Bartlett 10. Star Wars: The Force Awak­ens (PG-13, 136 min.) HHH ½ Di­rec­tor J.J. Abrams’ re­turn to Ge­orge Lu­cas’ space­opera uni­verse is a canny crowd-pleaser of re­ver­sals, re­plays and re­veals: Re­ver­sals of first-tril­ogy themes (the vil­lain rather than the hero is be­ing tempted to cross to the op­pos­ing side of the Force); re­plays of decades-old high­lights (a dog­fight at­tack on a steroidized Death Star); and re­veals that defy not au­di­ence ex­pec­ta­tions but se­ries prece­dent (a stormtrooper is black; a Luke-like desert scav­enger is fe­male). Wolfchase Gal­le­ria Cin­ema 8. The Young Mes­siah (PG-13, 111 min.) Ad­ven­tures of the boy Je­sus. Bartlett 10. Zootopia (PG, 108 min.) HHH ½ Dis­ney’s lat­est dig­i­tally an­i­mated fea­ture is a con­traTrumpian, race-con­scious, po­lit­i­cal-con­spir­acy neo-noir in the guise of a talk­ing-an­i­mal car­toon. For kids, it’s an un­der­dog story-meets-buddy com­edy, as young Judy Hopps (voiced by Mem­phis’ Gin­nifer Good­win) works her fluffy tail off to prove her worth as Zootopia’s first bunny cop while nav­i­gat­ing an un­easy al­liance with a sly pet­ty­crim­i­nal fox (Ja­son Bate­man). It’s very funny and in­ge­niously de­signed. Cine­planet 16, Col­lierville Towne 16, Cor­dova Cin­ema, De­soto Cin­ema 16, For­est Hill 8, Hol­ly­wood 20 Cin­ema, Ma­jes­tic, Olive Branch Cin­ema, Par­adiso, Stage Cin­ema, Sum­mer Quar­tet Drive-in.
