“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” — In the pale update, a dreadful sequel to 2012’s darkly appealing “Snow White and the Huntsman,” nearly every major character dies and comes back to life at least once and a convoluted narrative yields not a single, palpable moment of drama. (1:54) PG-13.

“Miles Ahead” — Is it easier to create a brilliant, mesmerizing performance than to write and direct a film that convincingly contains it? Based on the evidence provided by writer-director-star Don Cheadle in this story of jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, the answer would appear to be yes. (1:40) R.
