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 Watch

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.

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?

Sci-Fi del Grande Gatto: Battleship

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?

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.

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.
