The weird badness, or the bad weirdness, of Vince Vaughn's train wreck farce “Unfinished Business” can be traced back to Steve Conrad's dual personality screenplay that, in one scene, appeals to the Walt Disney family values crowd. In the next, Ken Scott's comedy panders to the lowest frat boy denominators of grossly explicit nudity, drugs, insane parties and imaginative sexual positions.
This 'Marigold Hotel' definitely second-best
“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” could use a hyphen between “Second” and “Best” to be perfectly accurate. Still, fans of the original “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” will take great pleasure in catching up with the lovably flawed, rapidly aging Brits who arrived at that Indian oasis, run by an ambitiously capitalistic young man anxious to “outsource” old people from other countries.
What happens to society in 'Final Hours'?
You have to hand it to Australian filmmakers for having the edge on the edge. Following Aussie director Jennifer Kent's stylized reinvention of the horror film with 2014's “Babadook,” Zak Hilditch's unnervingly realistic end-of-the-world drama “These Final Hours” asks this fundamental question: If the world died in 12 hours, would life become more valuable or utterly meaningless?
Unique perspective gives 'Mr. Heineken' extra credit
“Kidnapping Mr. Heineken” shows us its heist story strictly from the kidnappers' points of view, as did de Vries' book. We never know when or where the police might catch on. This helps the movie overcome some of the ham-fisted, hard-boiled dialogue the writers saddled it with.
Gire: Film society screens 'Two Days'
The After Hours Film Society presents the Oscar-nominated drama “Two Days, One Night,” starring Marion Cotillard as a woman who has two days and one night to persuade her factory co-workers to give up their bonuses ($1,200) so that she can keep her job.

As a child, I grew up in an Italian household and more often than not, my mom would either turn on the PBS station on television or put a 33⅓ album on the hi fi (not Wi-Fi) of Puccini’s “Turandot,” “Madama Butterfly” or “Tosca.”
