In Mega-City One, there are 17,000 crimes a day. The only way to efficiently dispense justice in this kind of dystopia is with a one-person judge, jury and executioner. While Dredd is evaluating the performance of a recruit (who happens to have psychic abilities), they are locked in a tower block with a powerful and violent drug lord (played by Lena Heady) who will destroy anyone and anything to protect her nefarious empire. The visual effects in this movie are stunning, and the action sequences are more than satisfying to the pallete of your casual action-movie junkie. Be forewarned, though, that the violence in this movie is not for the faint of heart.

This movie provides lots of laughs, impeccable 30s fashion, and action.

A wealthy family, built on emotional detachment and lies, creates complex and unconventional relationships with each other and those around them. The characters weave intricate webs, causing you to hate them one minute but sympathize with them the next. The film that makes you appreciate the normality of your life compared to Igby's.

Or Miss Scarlet with the knife in the billiard room? One of the world’s most popular board games comes to life in a movie filled with secrets, blackmail, murder, intrigue, but most of all, laughs. Clue features a star-studded cast with memorable performances by Eileen Brennan as Mrs. Peacock, Madeline Kahn as Mrs. White, and Christopher Lloyd as Professor Plum.
