01/08/2012 – ‘Frankenweenie,’ ‘Dredd,’ ‘House at the End of the Street’ and ‘Compliance’
Pick of the Week
Director Tim Burton presents a stop-motion animated feature based on his original live-action cult comedy short, featuring the voices of Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau and Winona Ryder. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life -- with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor's fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous.

Judgment is Coming
Karl Urban stars as the post-apocalyptic comic book lawman Judge Dredd. The future America is an irradiated wasteland. In Mega City One -- a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the streets -- the only force of order lies with cops called "Judges" who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge, a dangerous drug called "Slo-Mo," and the sadistic crime boss Ma-Ma, who is using it to take over the city.
