Not a great weekend for fantasy and sci-fi, I'm afraid. "Mirror Mirror" is fine if you have kids or just want some silly camp this weekend. No matter what though, I'd recommend staying far away from "Wrath of the Titans."

Will you see either of these movies this weekend?

I really wanted this to be better. As it is, it's still a fun movie, and definitely worth the cost of admission. It could have been so much more though. Are you going to see "John Carter" this weekend? Or if you already have, what did you think?

In fact, there are two good movies out this weekend. The other one, "The Woman in Black," is not sci-fi, but is a fun ghost story, and Daniel Radcliffe does a fantastic job. While I think most will have more fun with "Chronicle," both movies are definitely worth seeing. You may have a hard decision ahead of you this weekend. Which movie will you see?

The Avengers is out in the United States this weekend, and it's everything you'd want out of a superhero movie. Best of all, you finally get to see Nick Fury in action. Just don't see it in 3D if you can avoid it. As a post-production conversion, it adds absolutely nothing to the movie.

Do stay all the way through the credits, though. The scene in the middle of the credits is your typical Marvel teaser for the next movie, but the one all the way at the end (filmed after the premiere) is really something special.

Sci-Fi del Grande Gatto: The Hunger Games

"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?

Despite some flaws, The Dark Knight Rises is still a great movie and a satisfying end to the series. Best of all, it isn't in 3D! Some scenes were shot in IMAX though, so if you have the opportunity, it is definitely worth seeing the movie that way.

Be sure to tell us what you think of the movie!

While some of the action scenes can be pretty cool, the new Total Recall isn't nearly as fun to watch or as memorable as the 1990 version.

Will you go see Total Recall this weekend, or will you stay home and watch Ahnold's version again? Or you could always read the short story, "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale," especially if you haven't already. Seriously, go read it. Right now. It's amazing.
