Halloween is right around the corner, and you know what that means: Lots of candy, costumes (I called Fired Big Bird!), and scary movies.

It’s alive!

This Week’s Big-Screen Goody:

Nemo has to be found all over again. Poor fish. But this time, it’s in 3-D. That’s right! Finding Nemo is back in theaters this weekend in all three dimensions. Disney will also be releasing Monsters, Inc. in 3-D before the end of the year, continuing its winning formula. I’m still not sold on this whole 3-D thing, but I do have to admit that it’s nice to see some of the classics on the big screen again. What do you think? Vote in our poll below (sorry, it’s only in 2-D).

This Week’s Big-Screen Goody:

I finally made it to a screening of ParaNorman (rated PG) this week. Ever since seeing The Last Unicorn and Labyrinth as a kid, I’ve loved the slightly dark and supernatural children’s movies. This movie kicks up the childhood spookiness a notch with a full on (and trendy) zombie invasion. Luckily, Norman can communicate with ghosts and ghouls. If your kid was creeped out by Coraline, this movie will definitely be a little too much. Check out the trailer below:

This Week’s Big-Screen Goody:

Our celeb correspondent (and Entertainment Tonight cohost) Nancy O’Dell recently had the chance to chat with actress Jennifer Garner. Jennifer’s new Disney movie, The Odd Life Of Timothy Green (Rated PG), is out this weekend, and the star and mom of three was super-psyched to share the modern-day fairy-tale with us. Here’s what she had to say about it:

Are we all going to cry when we see it? Do I need to bring tissues with me?

“I took two mom friends to an early screening before it was done, and they both–even during the happy scenes–cried their heads off. I watched them more than I watched the movie because they were so funny. But in a good way–it made them realize how much they love their kids and their lives. It’s reaffirming. It really is something that everyone who reads Parents magazine should make a point of going to see. If it doesn’t make you cry, call me and I’ll give you a dollar.”

This Week’s TV Goody:

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been watching the Olympics pretty much every waking hour. As with the Super Bowl, I get an extra kick out of watching some of the commercials. My favorite TV spots this time around are for the upcoming Wreck It, Ralph! movie. It probably helps that I have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old. Check out the clip below.

This Week’s Viral Goody:

The good thing about a slow weekend at the theaters is it makes me turn to the Web for some entertainment. And I found just that in the new web series, Written By A Kid. The format is simple: A kid tells a story to the two hosts, who ask questions, and as the child is talking, it cuts away to scenes from the story. The first webisode, “Scary Smash,” is fun, funny, and full of geeky cameos. Extra credit goes to the person who can identify the person playing the “S.Q.U.A.T.” leader. Check out the vid below.
