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.
"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?
This is definitely one of those movies where nearly all the funny parts were in the trailer. The rest of the movie has a few minor chuckles and not much more. If you're still really interested in it, I'd recommend waiting for it to come out on DVD or Streaming and renting it.
If you do end up seeing The Watch though, please tell us what you think.
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.
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!
