So the fourth "Underworld" movie isn't exactly what you'd call good. But what can you expect with a January release? Still, if you really really like this series, "Awakening" is a decent way to kill 88 minutes.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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?
