Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (2009)

On a remote island where the only food is sardines, Flint (Bill Hader) invents a device that makes the sky rain hamburgers. Cue the increasingly dangerous fallout. The strength of this occasionally preachy computer-animated film is in the gags, both sight and verbal. Voice cast includes James Caan (Flint's father), Anna Faris, Mr. T and Bruce Campbell. Hader says his chief thought while working with Caan was, "I can't believe I'm in an argument with Sonny Corleone."

The Final Destination (2009)

Time to don those cardboard 3-D glasses again (they're included). This is the latest in the series about folks who escape death only to have Death track them down in gruesomely inventive ways. The 3-D feels artificial, but it works; pointy sticks pop out of the screen; flying debris heads straight for you. (The disc also offers a 2-D option.) "I think my innards explode out into the audience," Krista Allen (co-starring as doomed Samantha) says on the film set. "It's going to be great."
