Critics review the new “Mortal Kombat,” based on the 1990s video game featuring Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, and Sonya Blade; “Together Together,” starring Ed Helms as a single man who decides he’s ready to have a child via surrogate, played by Patti Harrison, and the two end up spending a lot of time together; the thriller “Stowaway,” in which a three-person mission to Mars winds up with an extra passenger; “Sisters with Transistors,” a documentary profiling the women who pioneered electronic music.
