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: Brave and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Brave, while not Pixar's best movie, is still a great original fairy tale. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter on the other hand, is mostly boring and way too self-serious, but is redeemed at least a little bit by some fun vampire fight scenes. You'll likely get at least some enjoyment out of either movie, but I'd recommend Brave over Lincoln any day.

Which one will you go see this weekend? Or will you go see this week's less fantastical fare, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World? Whatever you end up seeing, tell us what you think in the comments.

Branded is a bad movie, no question about that. That doesn't mean it should be avoided at all costs though. If you love bad movies, or love to riff on them MST3K style, you couldn't ask for much better material.

Unfortunately, that's all we get for sci-fi this week. Hopefully we'll get some better movies soon. Are you going to see Branded? If you do, for whatever reason, be sure to tell us what you think.

Snow White and the Huntsman is mostly a fine fairy tale movie with some good ideas and fun special effects. Unfortunately, it gets bogged down by some really boring expository scenes that last way too long.

Even with all these problems, it's still a perfectly acceptable movie. Go in expecting nothing more than a fairy tale, and you'll most likely enjoy yourself. Or if you've already seen it, we'd like to hear your opinion too. Would you recommend Snow White and the Huntsman?

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.

Are you going to see Resident Evil: Retribution this weekend? Tell us what you think!

While Battleship isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, it's still awful. And long. Really long. I guess if you're really looking for an action movie and are sick of The Avengers, Battleship might satisfy you for a little while. Even then, I'd recommend staying home and renting something.

But this is just one large cat's opinion. Will you see Battleship? If you do, tell us what you think.

There's not much to it, but Dredd 3D is a fun R-rated action movie. That's all it tried to be, and it ended up doing a very good job, in this cat's opinion. What about yours? Are you going to see Dredd 3D this weekend?
