300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE —There’s nothing all that moving in this more visually stunning but less thrilling epic, this time at sea. 102 mins. R for strong, sustained, stylized bloody violence, a sex scene, nudity and some language. ♦ ♦ 1/2

BAD WORDS — It’s shocking to see Jason Bateman behave scurrilously — as a 40-year-old who exploits a loophole in a national spelling bee to compete against adolescents. 88 mins. R for pervasive profanity, nudity, sex, crude humor. ♦ ♦ 1/2

DIVERGENT — Tris (Shailene Woodley) resists society’s attempt to pigeonhole her into one of five factions. There’s a real “Hunger Games” tone here. 143 mins. PG-13 for violence, adult elements. ♦ ♦

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL — In this old-fashioned screwball comedy, M. Gustave (Ralph Fiennes) is a concierge at a legendary hotel in a fictional European country. Thievery, murder, imprisonment, improbable chases, remarkable getaways and many ornate pastries follow. 100 mins. R for language, sexual content and violence. ♦ ♦

GOD’S NOT DEAD — College student Josh Wheaton’s faith is challenged by his philosophy professor, who believes God does not exist. 113 mins. PG for thematic material, brief violence and an accident scene. ♦

LEGO MOVIE 3D — Witty and unexpected, and, despite product placement galore, there is something genuine in the message about believing in yourself and nurturing your creativity. 100 mins. PG for mild action and rude humor. ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN — Dreamworks Animation revives one of the most popular features of the old “Rocky & Bullwinkle Show,” the one about a dog and his boy. 88 mins. PG for some mild action and brief rude humor. ♦ ♦ ♦

MUPPETS MOST WANTED — It’s funnier than the last Muppets movie, with far better songs, punnier puns and all manner of geo-political gags, cultural wisecracks and star cameos. 112 mins. PG for some mild action. ♦ ♦ ♦

NEED FOR SPEED — For anybody tired of digital movie car chases that routinely defy the laws of physics, here’s one where the cars and stunts are real (mostly) and spectacular. 130 mins. PG-13 for reckless racing, disturbing scenes, nudity and language. ♦ ♦

NOAH — The biblical story of the flood is common to many world religions, and though God doesn’t utter a peep here, this could be interpreted as a story of faith as easily as a fairy tale. 138 mins. PG-13 for violence, gore, adult themes. ♦ ♦ ♦

NON-STOP — Liam Neeson is a U.S. air marshal, entrusted with keeping flights hijack-free, in this action picture that delivers a lulu ending. 104 mins. PG-13 for intense action/violence, language, sensuality and drug references. ♦ ♦

SABOTAGE — Arnold Schwarzenegger leads a renegade undercover DEA team, whose members, after skimming $10 million, start getting picked off one by one, horror-movie style. 109 mins. R for bloody violence, strong language, nudity/sexuality and drug use. ♦ ♦

SON OF GOD — This big-screen version of the History Channel TV series “The Bible” has a redemptive optimism that makes the brutality go down easier. 140 mins. PG-13 for intense depiction of the crucifixion and violence. ♦ ♦ 1/2
