WEEKEND PIC May 11 - 13

Your Guide To The Weekend Viewing

1. SPIDER-MAN 3 (fantasy thriller with Tobey Maguire, Kristen Dunst and Thomas Haden Church) Rated: * * * (out of 4): Die-hard Spidey fans may feel shortchanged by director Sam Raimi's treatment of Venom, but the overall movie and effects are still awesome.

2. 28 WEEKS LATER (sci-fi thriller with Robert Carlyle, Rose Bryne and Jeremy Renner) Rated: * * * (3 stars): A decent and engaging 'sequel' to zombie flick "28 Days Later" by Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo who seems to go overboard with fast-pace editing and an excess of gore.

3. NEXT (sci-fi thriller with Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore and Jessica Biel) Rated * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): Lee Tamahori's adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story (about a man who can see minutes into the future) starts off promisingly but tapers into a confusing cat-and-mouse game. Nice love story, though.

4. WILD HOGS (comedy with Tim Allen, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy) Rated: * * ½: (out of 4): This mid-life road trip plot is so lame that it would make you cringe. However, there are some laughs and fun provided by the veteran cast, especially Macy.

5. THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2 (suspense thriller with Michael McMillan, Jessica Stroup, Daniella Alonso and Jacob Vargas) Rated * ½ (1.5 stars): This sequel to the 2006 remake is just a lame excuse to load viewers with blood and gore. It is filled with cardboard characters whom we do not care about.
