CRITICS’ CHOICE

“The Jungle Book” — By turns sweetly amusing and scarily unnerving, crammed with story, song and computer-generated visual splendors, this revisiting of the old Rudyard Kipling tales aims to be a model of modern crowd-pleasing entertainment. (1:51) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:10, 2:40, 9:35 p.m.; Fri.-Tues.: 11, 1:30, 4:10, 7, 9:30 p.m.; Wed. 11, 1:30, 4:10 p.m.

“The Lobster” — Yorgos Lanthimos’ hypnotically strange and suggestive new movie is very much its own brand of horror movie as well as a deranged thought experiment, a stealth love story, and a witty dismantling of the usual barriers separating man from beast. (1:58) R.

Pickford Film Center: Thurs. 3:30, 5:15 p.m.; Fri. 12:45, 3:30, 6:15, 9 p.m.; Sat. 12:30, 3:30, 6:15, 9 p.m.; Sun. 2:30, 5:15, 8 p.m.; Mon. 3:30, 9 p.m.; Tues. 3:30, 6:15, 9 p.m.; Wed. 3:30, 9 p.m.

“Love & Friendship” — Whit Stillman has finally made a full-fledged Jane Austen adaptation, a master class on the art of comic timing, taking the author’s early epistolary novella and infusing it with his own droll, mocking spirit and expert way of looking behind societal facades. (1:32) PG.

PFC’s Limelight Cinema: Thurs. 1:30, 6:15 p.m.; Fri.-Sat.: 2:20 p.m.; Sun. 1:20 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 2:20 p.m.

“Maggie’s Plan” — Rebecca Miller’s dramedy is sweet but analytical and pragmatic in its approach to exploring the ways of navigating partnership, parenthood and personal values. (1:38) R.

PFC’s Limelight Cinema: Thurs. 3:50, 8:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sat.: 9 p.m.; Sun. 8 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 9 p.m.

ALSO PLAYING

“Alice Through the Looking Glass” — Disney’s crass, pointless sequel, this time under the direction of James Bobin, again plunders elements from Lewis Carroll’s books and reshuffles them into a pedestrian narrative, replacing his sui generis nonsense with strenuously unimaginative and literal-minded storytelling. (1:53) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:35, 2:05 p.m.

“The Angry Birds Movie” — Based on the mobile video game, it proves to be more than just a gimmick, and doesn’t skimp on any of the quirky wackiness that you might expect from a film about blob-shaped, flightless birds battling pigs. (1:37) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:40, 2:10, 4:30, 7:10 p.m.

“Captain America: Civil War” — It finally works its will on us, wearing us down with the weight of its self-importance as much as anything else. If you live and breathe Marvel, this is one of the MCU’s stronger offerings. (2:27) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 5:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sat.: 6:20, 9:40 p.m.; Sun. 10:05 p.m.; Mon. 6:20, 9:40 p.m.; Wed. 9:50 p.m.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 1:40, 4:20, 7:20, 10:10 p.m.; Fri.-Sat.: 11:20, 2, 4:40, 7:25, 10:10 p.m.; Sun. 11:15, 2, 4:40, 7:25, 10:10 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 11:20, 2, 4:40, 7:25, 10:10 p.m.

“The Conjuring 2” — James Wan’s follow-up to his superb 2013 haunted-house thriller is another virtuosic exercise in mobile camerawork and moldering production design, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprising their roles as paranormal investigators. (2:13) R.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:10, 12:50, 2:20, 4, 5:45, 9:50 p.m.; Fri.-Wed.: 11:30, 2:40, 5:50, 9:15 p.m.

Barkley Village 16 IMAX 3D: Thurs. 11:20, 2, 4:50 p.m.

“Genius” — A restrained Colin Firth and a flamboyantly over-the-top Jude Law anchor this stiff and musty drama about the literary editor Maxwell Perkins and his relationship with one of his most difficult talents, Thomas Wolfe. (1:44) PG-13.

Pickford Film Center: Thurs. 2:45 p.m.; Fri. 1:15, 6:25 p.m.; Sat. 1, 6 p.m.; Sun. 12, 6, 8:30 p.m.; Mon. 3:45, 6:30, 8:55 p.m.; Tues. 3:45, 8:55 p.m.; Wed. 3:45 p.m.

“Me Before You” — Emilia Clarke has loads of talent, but here she’s undermined by director Thea Sharrock’s technique, and an endless slew of overeager reaction shots; the romance remains a thing of cinematic emoticons. (1:50) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:20, 3, 5:50, 8:30 p.m.; Fri.-Wed.: 11:40

“Now You See Me 2” — You don’t believe a second of what you’re seeing but ... well, you don’t believe a second of what you’re seeing. (1:55) PG-13.

“Teenage Mutant Turtles: Out of the Shadows” — A befuddling and loud jumble of computer graphics and familiar character names crammed into a story that’s overly busy but also too simple. (1:52) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:30, 2:30, 5:20, 7:55, 10:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sat.: 12:50, 3:30 p.m.; Sun. 11:20; Mon.-Tues.: 12:50, 3:30 p.m.; Wed. 11:15

“Warcraft” — Adapted from the novels and games in Blizzard Entertainment’s franchise, Duncan Jones’ maximalist humans-vs.-Orcs fantasy is lumpy and derivative, but it also pulses with a believer’s conviction. (2:03) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:50, 3:10, 10:20 p.m.; Fri.-Wed.: 1, 4, 7:20 p.m.

Barkley Village 16 3D: Thurs. 11:05, 4:40, 6:20 p.m.; Fri.-Wed.: 10:15 p.m.

“X-Men: Apocalypse” — Disorganized but engaging, full of visual pyrotechnics and earnest emotion, the seventh 20th Century Fox film with “X-Men” in the title is diverting, if not necessarily convincing. (2:24) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 1:50, 5:10 p.m.; Fri.-Wed.: 2:20, 5:40, 9 p.m.
