"The Hunger Games" is a lot of fun, and considering its target audience, the world has a surprising amount of depth to it. As far as the violence goes, they show as much as they can get away with and still keep the PG-13 rating. That still allows for some pretty gruesome and uncomfortable imagery, which I think is what a movie like this needs.

Will you go see "The Hunger Games" this weekend, or stay home and rent "Battle Royale?" Or if you've seen it already, what did you think?

While the script has some problems, Prometheus more than makes up for them with brilliant acting, beautiful direction and extraordinarily tense and terrifying moments. Even the 3D worked perfectly and was never distracting or disorienting. As someone who is generally tired of 3D, it's nice to see a movie come along that does it well.

Will you see Prometheus this weekend? Or do you live in Europe and have already seen it? Either way, tell us what you think.

These kinds of movies are hard to rate. Resident Evil: Retribution is a bad movie. It's too bad to receive a "Ceiling Cat Approves," but too fun to be called either "Meh," or "Ebil." This movie gets our first "Basement Cat Approves," specifically designed for movies that are truly bad, but that's why we like them.

There is so much more that's wrong with this movie. Most notably, the scene where the werewolf falls in love with the baby. Yep. That is a thing that happens. Just when you thought the movie couldn't get any dumber, the werewolf falls in love with the baby. I need another drink. Hopefully we can get some fantasy or sci-fi movies that aren't completely terrible.

It's not a great movie, but the premise was enough to keep me entertained. I'd certainly watch this over the "Thing" prequel. In the end though, all it really did for was make me want to reread the Ellison story.
