Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter a väzeň z Azkabanu) - Adventure/Fantasy by Alfonso Cuaron. The third movie based on JK Rowling's insanely popular book series takes the pubescent wizard into slightly darker territory. After escaping from prison, homicidal maniac Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) sets out to kill Harry. While trying to fend him off and deal with various other evils, our hero tries to discover a mystery from his past. Though most of the usual suspects are here, there are some significant changes. Most notably, middle-of-the-road director Chris Columbus has been replaced by Cuaron, the director of the controversial Y tu mama tambien. Three of England's most respected actors have also come aboard: Julie Christie, David Thewlis, and Timothy Spall.

Dawn of the Dead (Úsvit mŕtvych) - Horror by Zack Snyder. A remake of George Romero's 1979 masterpiece, which, like its predecessor, Night of the Living Dead, seamlessly combined intense gore with pointed social commentary. This one reportedly tones down the critique and therefore probably doesn't quite live up to the original, but perhaps that's not the point. Starring a whole lot of flesh-eating zombies, Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), and the always-radiant Sarah Polley (The Sweet Hereafter).
