AMAZING GRACE: A documentary

focused on Aretha Franklin’s recording of the album “Amazing Grace” at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts. She’s a national treasure, so this should be an unmissable documentary. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

ASK DR. RUTH: The Doctor known as Ruth is America’s most famous sex therapist, and it’s about time her remarkable story was told. From Holocaust survivor to the sexual revolution, she’s seen it all and this documentary covers all the bases. Tin Pan Theater AVENGERS: ENDGAME: After 11 years and 22 movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we’ve come to know it reaches its end. With the amount of hype leveled toward this movie, it’s kind of astounding that the film not only sticks the landing but manages to be an emotional powerhouse for anyone invested in this story. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

CAPTAIN MARVEL: The 21st installment

of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is another charming and action-packed ride. Since this is an origin story, the film can be a bit formulaic at times, but the chemistry of Sam Jackson and Brie Larson is delightful enough to keep things light. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

GLORIA BELL: Julianne Moore gives one of her finest performances as a woman who finds love at a time where she was searching for anything but something serious. A surprising and heartfelt little movie. Odem Theater Pub HAIL SATAN?: A hilarious and at times pro-

found look at the new, much-less-creepy Satanic Church as they advocate for religious freedom and a few other pretty important things. The perfect antidote to Satanic Panic and a very smart look at a taboo subject. Tin Pan Theater

HOTEL MUMBAI: An intense and nail-biting recreation of the terrorist attack against the Taj hotel in Mumbai. Heart pounding and deeply unsettling, “Hotel Mumbai” is very tough to watch. Odem Theater Pub LITTLE WOODS: Tessa Thompson and Lily James in a thriller reminiscent of “Winter’s Bone” and “Wind River” is just about the best thing I can imagine. One of the finest directorial debuts of the year from Nia DaCosta. Odem Theater Pub. LONG SHOT: While on the surface this looks

like another “Seth Rogan Dates Someone Prettier Than Him” movie, director Jonathan Levine (“The Wackness”) is a filmmaker who usually avoids the genre’s cliches. Plus, Charlize Theron is an inter)national treasure. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

MARY MAGDALENE: A film that portrays

Mary Magdalene as an almost-revolutionary and fiercely dedicated apostle. For those not interested in the story, the film is worth watch-

ing just to see the always underrated Rooney Mara as Mary and a deeply committed Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus. Sisters Movie House

POKEMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU: I was

a little too old for the Pokemon boom back in the ‘90s, but “Detective Pikachu” looks adorable and also kinda surreal. With Ryan Reynolds voicing the titular character, consider me a possible convert. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema, Odem Theater Pub

POMS: Has there been a good cheerleader mov-

ie since the original “Bring it On?” Not really. But with a cast featuring Diane Keaton, Rhea Perlman, Jacki Weaver and the goddess Pam Grier, this one might very well break the streak. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

SHAZAM!: Imagine the plot of “Big” but

Tom Hanks could fly and shoot electricity from himself and you basically have “Shazam!” DC films is on a roll after finally figuring out that superhero movies are better when they’re fun. Odem Theater Pub

TEEN SPIRIT: While the film tells a tale we’ve seen many times before, the central performance from Elle Fanning is astounding in this look at what makes a modern Cinderella story. Surprisingly delightful. Sisters Movie House

THE HUSTLE: Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson are both delightful, but playing con artists is always tricky. Melissa McCarthy tried and failed miserably in “Identity Thief,” and this one doesn’t look much better after watching the absolutely dire trailers. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE MUSTANG: Matthias Schoenaerts and Connie Britton star in this powerful drama about a convict participating in a program to train wild mustangs. This one’s guaranteed to bring tears to even the most hardened of viewers. Odem Theater Pub THE INTRUDER: Dennis Quaid as a creepy stalker is something I’ve always wanted to see and something I’m sure Meg Ryan is ready to forget. Ahhh, just kidding. I’m sure Dennis is nowhere near as insane as his brother Randy. Seriously though, this movie looks like a lot of fun. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX TOLKIEN: A film chronicling the creative early life of JRR Tolkien is long overdue, but the fact that his own family has completely rejected the biopic isn’t a very good sign. Still, the cast looks game and he had one hell of a life, so cautious optimism is in order. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX UGLYDOLLS: Now, I’m not saying this movie looks like a soulless marketing tie-in to the Uglydolls stuffed toys, but it really kinda does. At the same time, if the film has a message for children that says they don’t have to feel bad about their third eye or vestigial tail, then more power to this cynical cross-promotion. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema
