Bad Neigh­bors 2

If you saw the first “Bad Neigh­bors” and thought to your­self, “Man, that was phe­nom­e­nal, but I re­ally want to see that again with soror­ity sis­ters!” then con­grat­u­la­tions: Christ­mas has come early this year for you, weirdo. The one star is for Zac Efron’s un­be­liev­ably hot body.

(USA) (In­dia)

When a six-year-old mute girl ac­ci­den­tally gets left be­hind in Delhi, there’s only one per­son who can help her get home: de­vout Brah­min Brother Ba­jrangi (Sal­man Khan). Only one prob­lem: She lives in Pak­istan-con­trolled Kash­mir. This rol­lick­ing epic tale is a fun and mov­ing watch from start to fin­ish, with im­pos­si­bly like­able char­ac­ters. Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War

The gang’s back to­gether, and by “to­gether,” we mean, sep­a­rated into two fac­tions and in de­bate about whether a rag-tag group of ass-kick­ing, su­per­hu­man mis­fits with megawatt smiles should have more govern­ment in­ter­ven­tion or less. A well-de­vel­oped nar­ra­tive and ex­plo­sive in­ter-Avengers fight se­quences make this an el­e­vated, ex­cit­ing comic book movie.


Chongqing Hot Pot

What be­gins as a bank heist by four am­a­teur rob­bers turns into a labyrinthine tour through sub­ter­ranean Chongqing, a trip down mem­ory lane, a dam­sel in ca­reer-dis­tress, and a show­down with the real pros. Full of twists and turns, with mo­ments of in­ti­mate ro­mance and mind-numb­ing vi­o­lence, Chongqing Hot Pot serves it up just right.


The In­erasable

Keep­ing with Ja­pan’s tra­di­tion of slow-burn­ing, bone-rat­tling hor­ror films, “The In­erasable” fol­lows a novelist as she in­ves­ti­gates the case of a stu­dent who hears strange noises com­ing from an empty room in an other­wise per­fectly or­di­nary house.
