What daddy issues?
Semi-dysfunctional co-dads Brad (Will Ferrell) and Dusty (“Marky” Mark Wahlberg) are back to make us laugh at the perils of fatherhood. And this time, Daddy’s Home 2 doubles down on daddies with John Lithgow and Mel Gibson as the dads’ dads (respectively) for double the dad jokes and dad bods.
Indie, but worth checking out(ie)
Don’t miss these great movies that didn’t get a huge marketing budget. Diverge is a post-apocalyptic thriller that follows a man who is given a unique opportunity to prevent the end of the world. Part sci-fi and part morality tale, it reminds us a little of 12 Monkeys – minus crazy Brad Pitt.
Keep Watching hasn’t gotten much hype from the studio, but this home invasion thriller just might have you hyperventilating. It’s got the whole hidden camera voyeur motif, a family trapped at home, and all the trappings of a great trapped-victim-fights-back-bloodbath.
And it may have subtitles (yeah, yeah, we know), but Extraordinary Mission has so much action that you might not even care. Follow the action as a police officer who goes undercover as a drug cartel member finds himself getting too deep into the role. If you like Infernal Affairs and classics like Hard Boiled, you’ll dig this.
For something a little different, Same Kind of Different As Me packs an emotional wallop and delivers a touching story of empathy understanding. And it’s got some big names delivering the big message, including Greg Kinnear, Renee Zellweger, Djimon Hounsou, and Jon Voight.

Your favorite moms you’d like to party with are back, and Christmas better watch out. A Bad Moms Christmas gives us more of our favorite bad moms and throws their moms into the mix (seems like adding parental units is the new secret sauce for a sequel). Hilarity ensues.
We’ve also got the red-hot Only the Brave, which pays homage to the 19 Hotshots firefighters who perished in the Yarnell Hill Fire in June of 2013; and Subrubicon, George Clooney’s twisted dark comedy of a father who finds himself in a set of unfortunate circumstances with the mob.
