The most visually compelling film since 'Avatar' goes up against the third 'Twilight' film this week, both of which feature actor Jackson Rathbone. It might come as a surprise that the teen oriented vampire movie is the one that got good reviews. But hey, you should be out barbequing this weekend anyway, not cooped up inside a movie theater.
The two movies hitting theaters this week are as formulaic as they come. In one case, that's a good thing, allowing the stars to have more fun with their characters. In another, the tired formula just adds to an otherwise unappealing movie.
There are two movies that are getting wide releases this week, but unless you're really into DC comics from the 70s, there's only one to see. It's the third in a series of family friendly flicks and it's currently sitting on Rotten Tomatoes without a single negative review. It's 'Toy Story 3' if you hadn't guessed.
The Nintendo 3DS was officially announced yesterday. And while it's a handheld game system first and foremost, Nintendo will also be bringing 3D movies to the device. It's not going to replace the 3D TV in your living room, but it looks like the best option for portable 3D at the moment.

Hollywood seems to have taken this to heart, because any attempt at originality is out the window this week. Read on to check out this week's theatrical releases.
