There is so much more that's wrong with this movie. Most notably, the scene where the werewolf falls in love with the baby. Yep. That is a thing that happens. Just when you thought the movie couldn't get any dumber, the werewolf falls in love with the baby. I need another drink. Hopefully we can get some fantasy or sci-fi movies that aren't completely terrible.
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?
50/50 director Jonathan Levine did a really good job with this one. The smart writing, directing, and generally good performances made a really stupid premise completely believable. It's a very sweet, well-made romantic comedy that's perfect for Valentine's Day.
Are you at all interested in Warm Bodies? If you end up seeing it, tell us what you think!
"Lockout" is technically not a good movie, but I can't deny that it was tons of fun. "Cabin in the Woods" is clearly the superior of the two, though. Still, two thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi/fantasy movies in the same week is pretty cool. Which one 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?
