I really wanted this to be better. As it is, it's still a fun movie, and definitely worth the cost of admission. It could have been so much more though. Are you going to see "John Carter" this weekend? Or if you already have, what did you think?
Beautiful Creatures is a perfectly okay movie. If you're looking for a great Valentine's Day date movie, watch Warm Bodies. If you've already seen Warm Bodies, you could certainly do much worse than this. Either way, you won't feel like your night is wasted.
Will you see Beautiful Creatures? Let us know what you think. Happy Valentine's Day, everybody!
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.
The Hobbit is not another Lord of the Rings, but despite some points where it drags, is a perfectly fun movie in its own right. Did anyone see it at midnight? Whether you've already seen it or plan to this weekend, tell us what you think.
Also if you saw it in IMAX, how was the Star Trek clip?
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.
This is a hard movie to recommend. For me, the good outweighed the not-so-good, and I ended up enjoying the movie a lot. Many people don't feel that way, and it's easy to see why.
If you go see Cloud Atlas this weekend, please come back here and tell us what you think. This is one of those movies where it helps to get as many opinions together as possible.
