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?
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.
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.
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!
John Dies at the End may not be all I was hoping for, but it's still a fun enough movie, especially if you go see it with the right mindset. Hansel and Gretel on the other hand... just don't.
Will you see either of these movies this weekend? Be sure to tell us what you think.
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?
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.
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. It's amazing.
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?
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. The most frustrating thing is the movie tells us way too much about the characters and their motivations in dialog without ever showing us. We're never shown why Kristen Stewart is considered fairer than Charlize Theron. (Probably because that would require technology that doesn't ye
Branded is a bad movie, no question about that. That doesn't mean it should be avoided at all costs though. If you love bad movies, or love to riff on them MST3K style, you couldn't ask for much better material.
Unfortunately, that's all we get for sci-fi this week. Hopefully we'll get some better movies soon. Are you going to see Branded? If you do, for whatever reason, be sure to tell us what you think.
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!
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.
