The Great Wall (Action fantasy, PG-13, 1 hr. 44 min., 2017)
Cast as the Great White Hope alongside several popular Chinese actors, Matt Damon plays a mercenary enlisted to help fight an invasion of paranormal monsters. A fantasy with some pretty cool visual effects but scads of unintentionally hilarious dialogue, ‘‘The Great Wall’’ is so wonderfully bad, I could see some coming for the action and staying for the camp laughs. It’s a beautiful bomb.
Logan (Superhero action, R, 2 hrs. 21 min., 2017)
As much a Western as it is a sci-fi thriller, James Mangold’s darkly entertaining ‘‘Logan’’ affords Hugh Jackman the opportunity to reinvent his portrayal of his X-Men character. The result is one of the best performances of Jackman’s career — and one of the most impressive superhero movies of this decade.
Get Out (Comedy horror, R, 1 hr. 45 min., 2017)
When a young black man (Daniel Kaluuya) meets the parents of his white girlfriend (Allison Williams), it’s the start of a cutting-edge, fresh and sometimes bat-bleep-crazy mash-up of ‘‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,’’ ‘‘Rosemary’s Baby’’ and ‘‘The Stepford Wives.’’ Writer-director Jordan Peele pays homage to some great horror films while carving out his own fantastically creative path.
