"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?

Spoiler warning: The review does contain a spoiler for the movie's big "plot twist." It's included because it's so infuriatingly stupid I couldn't not mention it.

The final Twilight movie sucks. Shocking, I know. If you end up seeing this movie, why? Whatever the reason, tell us what you think of it. Seriously though, why?

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?

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.

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.

Dark Skies will be good for a bad movie night someday, but there's no reason to go see it in theaters. It's all the same modern horror movie cliches, only this time there's aliens.

If, for some reason, you do go see "Dark Skies" this weekend, come back and tell us what you think.

Jack the Giant Slayer is not great, but not at all bad either. Go in with the right mindset, and you'll have a good time. One note on the 3D: though one or two shots in the movie look really cool with it, most of the movie doesn't use it at all. You won't miss anything by saving yourself some money and seeing it in 2D.

Will you see Jack the Giant Slayer? Let us know what you think!
