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?
Brave, while not Pixar's best movie, is still a great original fairy tale. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter on the other hand, is mostly boring and way too self-serious, but is redeemed at least a little bit by some fun vampire fight scenes. You'll likely get at least some enjoyment out of either movie, but I'd recommend Brave over Lincoln any day.
Which one will you go see this weekend? Or will you go see this week's less fantastical fare, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World? Whatever you end up seeing, tell us what you think in the comments.
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.
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?
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.
