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.
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!
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.

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?
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 Fr
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
There is so much more that's wrong with this movie. Most notably, the scene where the werewolf falls in love with the baby. Yep. That is a thing that happens. Just when you thought the movie couldn't get any dumber, the werewolf falls in love with the baby. I need another drink. Hopefully we can get some fantasy or sci-fi movies that aren't completely terrible.
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. Some scenes, the dialog would be fine, sometimes even good. Then a scene would come and ruin all of that with ham-fisted, embarrassing monologues. It's like they had two teams of writers. One that wa
These kinds of movies are hard to rate. Resident Evil: Retribution is a bad movie. It's too bad to receive a "Ceiling Cat Approves," but too fun to be called either "Meh," or "Ebil." This movie gets our first "Basement Cat Approves," specifically designed for movies that are truly bad, but that's why we like them.
Are you going to see Resident Evil: Retribution this weekend? Tell us what you think!
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.
