Two sci-fi/fantasy movies came out this week, though one is clearly better than the other. Which one will you see?
"The Hunger Games" is a lot of fun, and considering its target audience, the world has a surprising amount of depth to it. As far as the violence goes, they show as much as they can get away with and still keep the PG-13 rating. That still allows for some pretty gruesome and uncomfortable imagery, which I think is what a movie like this needs.
Will you go see "The Hunger Games" this weekend, or stay home and rent "Battle Royale?" Or if you've seen it already, what did you think?
Despite some flaws, The Dark Knight Rises is still a great movie and a satisfying end to the series. Best of all, it isn't in 3D! Some scenes were shot in IMAX though, so if you have the opportunity, it is definitely worth seeing the movie that way.
Be sure to tell us what you think of the movie!
While the script has some problems, Prometheus more than makes up for them with brilliant acting, beautiful direction and extraordinarily tense and terrifying moments. Even the 3D worked perfectly and was never distracting or disorienting. As someone who is generally tired of 3D, it's nice to see a movie come along that does it well.
Will you see Prometheus this weekend? Or do you live in Europe and have already seen it? Either way, tell us what you think.
Sadly this week's sci-fi/fantasy offering just isn't very good. It has its moments, but in the end is a boring mess. Still, this isn't the worst thing Tim Burton has done. It's just frustratingly mediocre.
What do you think? Will you see Dark Shadows this weekend, spend your money on something more worthy? Like seeing The Avengers a third or fourth time.
The Avengers is out in the United States this weekend, and it's everything you'd want out of a superhero movie. Best of all, you finally get to see Nick Fury in action. Just don't see it in 3D if you can avoid it. As a post-production conversion, it adds absolutely nothing to the movie. Do stay all the way through the credits though. The scene in the middle of the credits is your typical Marvel teaser for the next movie, but the one all the way at the end (filmed after the premiere) is re
