"American Reunion" (R): Jason Biggs and Seann William Scott are back for the gang's 13th high-school reunion. As reviewer Soren Andersen says, in this series "it's a man's world. Or rather, it's a world in which the men are boys. And boys will be naughty."
"Being Flynn" (R): Robert De Niro and Paul Dano play an estranged father and son in writer-director Paul Weitz's latest drama.
"The Flowers of War" (R): Chinese director Zhang Yimou revisits the 1937 massacre of Nanjing, formerly Nanking, by focusing on an American vagabond (Christian Bale) and two groups of young women — convent students and prostitutes — who find refuge at a church during the fighting. In English, Mandarin and Japanese, with English subtitles. No star rating provided.
