Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted dropped to number two this weekend as Brave came in at #1, bringing in $66.3 M. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter took third, grossing only $16.3 M. Let’s see how they did and if they’re worth the money!
Note: We only review films in wide release.
BRAVE–PG What’s the buzz? USA Today gave the film 3 out of 4 stars. “Pixar has set the bar so high that the expectation for every one of its films is for audiences to laugh, cry and be awed by artistic genius. Brave will draw chuckles and may elicit tears, but more importantly it introduces audiences to a new breed of Disney princess — one brimming with self-confidence, strong opinions, athletic skills, determination, loyalty and a head full of unruly curls.”  Audiences of all ages love it as well and were very pleased with the final product!
So is it worth the money? Yes!

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter–R What’s the buzz? A brain child of Tim Burton, it hasn’t done well with critics or audiences. According to the Los Angeles Times, “Given the subject matter, an exercise in delicacy and restraint was unlikely, but it’s too bad that the film’s concept is way more entertaining than what has ended up on-screen.” 
So is it worth the money? You will love it or hate it. You have a 50/50 chance.
