It must be sci-fi weekend at the movies: Those presto-chango Transformers are back for a fourth time, but the grownup movie this weekend is from a noted Korean director, who offers his unusual tale of global-warming refugees stuck on the ultimate nonstop train.

Of course, the controversy is helping assure event status for the sitcom instead. These groups never learn.
