If you have already seen “Avatar” or journeying back to Pandora isn’t your thing, Hollywood is releasing two major films just in time for Christmas.

Director Sarah Polley has the quieter film, “Women Talking,” nominated for best picture at the Critics Choice Awards. Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle (“La La Land”) delivers the audacious and highly provocative “Babylon,” examining the wild transition of Hollywood’s silent era to talking pictures.
