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?

Sci-Fi del Grande Gatto: The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man actually turned out much better than I thought it was going to be. If it hadn't been for that terribly long, drawn out ending, it probably would have gotten a higher rating. The way the quality of the writing changed so frequently throughout the film was weird though. It's like they had two teams of writers. One that was interested in developing characters and telling a good story, and one that had to be told the paper was for writing on, not eating.

Still, it is fairly enjoyable, though completely unnecessary and forgettable.

Will you see The Amazing Spider-Man? If you do, be sure to tell us what you think.

Sci-Fi del Grande Gatto: Prometheus

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.

Sci-Fi del Grande Gatto: Men in Black 3

This one was hard to rate. Men in Black 3 has problems, and is by no means a great movie, but I couldn't call it "meh" after enjoying it as much as I did. It has the same kind of charm that the first Men in Black did even if it's not as good. Also, the 3D is actually pretty good for a post-conversion. I still didn't think it was worth the $18 ticket, but if you're really into 3D movies, this one has some nice effects.

This is just one cat's opinion. If you end up seeing Men in Black 3 this weekend, tell us what you think.

Sci-Fi del Grande Gatto: The Avengers

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.

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.
