It's a good weekend if you've been waiting for these Oscar-nominated films: Dreamgirls and Babel.
Plus for those of you looking for a good laugh, there's a Korean comedy.
Son Heekyung has this week's new releases.

The Korean comedy "Hotel M: Gangster's Last Draw" is a look at how white-collar workers dealt with layoffs in the aftermath of the 1997 Asian financial crisis.
To survive in the winner-takes-all environment, rival mobs join forces to push for no-nonsense restructuring.
One of their victims is a gangster who is kicked out of a gang after a merge with another gang.
He sets off on a mission to get his job back.
"Hotel M" is a human comedy with mobsters battling tough corporate restructuring.

From Hollywood comes the musical drama "Dreamgirls" which has received eight Oscar nominations the most this year.
The film is set in the 1960s and '70s and dominated by an African-American cast including Oscar winner Jamie Foxx and pop diva Beyonce Knowles.
"Dreamgirls" is adapted from the 1981 Broadway musical of the same title.
The story is loosely based on the evolution of American rhythm and blues, and is about three women who form an R&B group.

"Babel" is another Oscar-nominated film from the US.
The international co-production starring Brad Pitt puts together four stories taking place in Morocco, Tunisia, Japan and Mexico.
A married couple on vacation is struck by tragedy setting off a chain reaction of events in the four countries.

Not for the squeamish is "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning," a prequel to the 2003 remake of the classic slasher film.
The movie explores the origin of the monster Leatherface and his cannibalistic family.
