A rundown of what to find in theaters this week

New releases:

“Fifty Shades Darker”

Just in time for Valentine's Day, amirite?! The second cinematic adaptation from E.L. James' erotic-ish best sellers continues the story of Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).

“The Lego Batman Movie”

The team behind “The Lego Movie” turns its irreverent eye to the Dark Knight's serious world, starring Will Arnett as the voice of Batman.

Alive recommends:

“La La Land”

I have a love-hate relationship with Oscar in general, but if a record-tying 14 nominations gets you to see this wonderful piece of cinema, so be it. (5 stars)


Calling it M. Night Shyamalan's best movie in years may not sound like much after his downward career spiral, but this twisty thriller is perfectly constructed and has a great cast. (4 stars)
