G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra: I love this movie as a G.I. Joe fan it was a great live action movie adaptation. The action was intense, exciting, and did not sag for a moment throughout the entire movie. The Ninjas were awesome! Definitely an owner.
Wolverine and the X-Men: Beginning of the End: The movies have burn me on wolverine so much that I just don't have it in me to get excited over this one. Not even a renter. If you have watched this let me know what you think about it.
If you really must waste your money don't buy the DVD just give it to us at least it is going to a good cause.
Sand Serpents: I happened upon this SyFy movie while house sitting and exploring cable again. It was terrible retelling of Tremors which at least had characters in it I liked. If you are looking to torture yourself they are streaming it on netflix. Do yourself a favor and Avoid this one like a plague.
Theater or Renter: July 2009 includes 5 SF movies Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G-Force, Orphan, Aliens in the Attic,. Will we watch? Will we rent? or do we even care?

This is going to be a goofy movie and possibly overly kidsy, but this trailer made me laugh hard.
Aliens in the Attic was written by a writer from Madagascar and another from Wallace and Gromit. It looks like an homage comedy hearkening back to CHUD with aliens that look like the cute, minor, monster aliens from Galaxy Quest.
You have to watch this trailer for one thing:
Doris Roberts in a remote controlled Matrix-style fight to Eye of the Tiger!
