On Demand movie highlights


(Showtime on Comcast) Mirra Bank’s film documents the making of “A Selection,” a collaboration between Maurice Sendak and the dance company Pilobolus about the Holocaust. While rehearsals are frequently more fascinating than the results, the movie falls short in not showing enough of the final work. (Unrated; runs through March 13)


(Showtime on Comcast) A sci-fi film that is visually stimulating, yet dumb in virtually every other way. Sylvester Stallone stars as a post-apocalyptic cop, who in 2139 also wields judiciary powers. That is until he is convicted of a crime, one he did not commit, and finds himself on the run. (R; runs through March 13)



(Encore on Comcast) A German shepherd comes back from the pearly gates to rescue a little girl in New Orleans, circa 1939. While the animation is adequately wrought, overall the film is derivative, recalling a handful of children’s movies featuring dogs as the stars, among them “Lady and the Tramp” and “Oliver & Company.” (G; runs through April 16)
