Sadly this week's sci-fi/fantasy offering just isn't very good. It has its moments, but in the end is a boring mess. Still, this isn't the worst thing Tim Burton has done. It's just frustratingly mediocre.

What do you think? Will you see Dark Shadows this weekend, spend your money on something more worthy? Like seeing The Avengers a third or fourth time.

"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?

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.
