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.

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.

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.

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.

Sci-Fi del Grande Gatto: "John Dies at the End" and "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters"

John Dies at the End may not be all I was hoping for, but it's still a fun enough movie, especially if you go see it with the right mindset. Hansel and Gretel on the other hand... just don't.

Will you see either of these movies this weekend? Be sure to 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.

Storage 24 is not a terrible movie. It just isn't very good. It's entertaining enough if you happen to catch it on TV one day, but it's never as scary as it should be. It's still better than what we usually get for horror movies in January.

This has already been out for a while in the U.K., so if anyone has already seen it, tell us what you thought. If you haven't seen it yet, do you plan to? Even just to see Mickey again?
