The headline pretty much says it all. The following trailers for a few action-packed features promise to get hearts pumping with things that explode real good. Sadly, only one of them actually looks worth getting excited about.

This weekend brings the theatrical release of the big-budget sci-fi drama ‘Ender’s Game’, starring Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley, and based on a beloved award-winning novel. In many respects, this seems like a sure bet to dominate the box office.

When it started, I honestly didn’t expect NBC’s ‘Grimm’ to last three episodes, much less three seasons. What looked in the ads to be a very cheesy ‘Buffy’ knockoff turned out to be a little better than expected, and slowly developed its own unique vibe and settled into being a solidly entertaining show. With that said, the second season ended with a really weak cliffhanger, and the new season premiere struggles to do much interesting with the results.
