We’ve teamed up with MSN FilmFan to discuss the films opening this weekend. We’d love to hear your input on what you’re most interested in seeing and why.

This week FilmFan Sami Jarroush is joined by MSN's Chief Critic and chooser of awesome tee shirts, Glenn Kenny. Kenny reminds me of what Jeffrey Tambor would be like if he were a film critic - and that's an envious compliment.

Kenny weighs in on the best for the summer and, not surprisingly, he hasn't enjoyed any of the popcorn flicks so far. He did say X-MEN: FIRST CLASS had a great set design, but that's the beginning and end of all compliments.

When discussing Oscar contenders, THE TREE OF LIFE was Kenny's top pick. As much as I hated this two hour computer screen-saver of a movie, I have to agree LIFE is going to rack up a lot of awards. I really hope the Academy creates a Best Whisper category in honor of this movie.

Watch the video after the break and let us know if you agree or disagree with Kenny.
