The 15:17 to Paris (Jasper 8 Theatres)

In re-creating the 2015 Paris-bound train journey in which passengers subdued a heavily armed gunman, director Clint Eastwood cast the real-life heroes as themselves, and the amateurs come across as such. Though there are a few pulse-quickening moments, the movie is slow-paced and feels padded. (Action drama, PG-13, 1 hr. 34 min.)

 

Black Panther (Jasper 8 Theatres)

Even if you’re not normally into the superhero genre, if you appreciate finely honed storytelling, winning performances and tons of whiz-bang action sequences and good humor, then you should see “Black Panther.” It’s one of the best times I’ve had at the movies this decade. (Superhero action, PG-13, 2 hrs. 20 min.)

 

Fifty Shades Freed (Jasper 8 Theatres)

In the third and (thank the cinema gods) final chapter in the vapid, lurid, S&M-sprinkled trilogy of slick trash, newlyweds Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) eventually leave the sexy stuff behind and fall into a combo platter of cheesy, easily solved mystery-thriller and overwrought daytime soap opera melodrama. (Drama thriller, R, 1 hr. 45 min.)

Forever My Girl (Jasper 8 Theatres)

Writer/director Bethany Ashton Wolf has adapted Heidi McLaughlin’s novel in “Forever My Girl,” a tale of love lost and found. This is an uncomplicated romantic tale of a man trying to do right by the women in his life may even be pure fantasy. But for an audience, seeking fluffy, escapist, country music-tinged romance, it’ll hit a sweet spot. (PG-13, 1 hr., 44 min.)

 

Also showing at Jasper 8 Theatres: "Early Man," "Peter Rabbit," and "Jumanji: Welcome Jungle."
