Time to play catch-up as Film Geek Central returns to handle two weeks' worth of releases and more!

First, we tackle the blockbuster that is HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE. In this one, Harry and the group come to terms with new information regarding Voldemort and by the time it is over, nothing will be the same. Everyone has seen this puppy at this point and we give our two cents.

Then, a team of smart guinea pigs try to take down an increasingly corpse-like Bill Nighy in G-FORCE. It's a new family film from Disney, featuring the voices of Nicholas Cage, Penelope Cruz, Tracy Morgan and the real-life personalities of Zach Galifianakis.

Gerard Butler is a mysogynistic cad who falls for Katharine Heigel in THE UGLY TRUTH. This one is a romantic comedy but with an R-rated touch, which might be why it hasn't gotten the push one would expect in a summer market starving for romantic comedies. Certainly a change of pace from the director of LEGALLY BLONDE and MONSTER-IN-LAW.

The time-honored horror tradition of "kids be freaky" continues with Dark Castle's latest, ORPHAN. This one is from the director of Dark Castle's HOUSE OF WAX, which despite having nothing to do with the original and jumping on the miscasting of Paris Hilton, was actually pretty good. Also, try to guess how many times CCH Pounder has played Professional Exposition Lady, there may be a quiz.

We'll also take a look at some of the highlights from Comic Con 2009, which wraps up on Sunday night. We'll give you the skinny on some of the new ways Hollywood is intergrating itself into the festival as Comic-Con quickly becomes the geek's Sundance.

All this, plus DVD releases and news on the next Film Geek Central!
