More Academy Awards nominees hit local theaters ahead of the ceremony later this month, plus the latest from Michael Moore, and the return of Derek Zoolander.

Best Foreign Language Film nominee Son of Saul explores the horrifying reality of Auschwitz as a factory for destroying life through the story of one man trying to give a single body a ritual burial. Michael Moore takes an optimistic journey through the good ideas America could steal from the rest of the world in Where to Invade Next. Name-checking Sex and the City doesn't erase the reality that How to Be Single's New York-set tale of women looking for love (or not) feels way too familiar.

Eric D. Snider can't see a point to the aimless Zoolander 2 (pictured) besides Ben Stiller eventually saying, "Hey, what if we made a sequel?"

MaryAnn Johanson finds powerful subject matter in all of the Academy Award Nominated Documentary Short Filmssplit into two programs at the Tower Theatre.

In this week's feature review, Deadpool smirks its way through a skewering of superhero movie tropes, even though it's actually better as a superhero movie than as a skewering of them.
