    Saw 3-D is in 3-D. Really, really bad 3-D.

    That's the culture we live in, where the once-proscribed Pleasure Principle has become iron law and where the recycled, bloated, fish-belly emptiness of something like TRON: Legacy carries boredom to extravagant new heights.

    It was boring and silly but not atrociously bad. No, that's much too glowing; allow me to back up and rephrase. It is atrociously bad, basically.

    Can someone explain what Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman are doing in a chaotic and sadistic home-invasion thriller, shot in digital colors so radioactive they appear to have leaked out of the Fukushima nuclear plant?

    J. Edgar turns out to be one of the worst ideas anybody's ever had, a mendacious, muddled, sub-mediocre mess that turns some of the most explosive episodes of the 20th century into bad domestic melodrama and refuses to take any clear position on one of American history's most controversial figures.

    One could and perhaps should use scare quotes around "intellectual" when it comes to someone who would crank out a piece of campaign-season partisan hackwork this crude and sloppy. (By this standard, James Carville looks like Immanuel Kant.)

    Seriously, this is one of the strangest and most painful films in recent memory.

    Pretty much three well-staged action sequences strung together with the dumbest imaginable connective tissue.

    Cohen had neither the chops nor the clout to prevent Get Hard from ending up, no doubt through the normal process of producer rewrites, focus groups, worried agents and weevil infestations, as a confused and contradictory mess. More to the point, it’s almost never funny, and full of elementary screenwriting blunders.

    Startlingly inept from start to finish -- it's atrociously written, poorly shot and edited and fatally unfocused.

    This awkward fable of ghetto redemption mixes painfully earnest message-delivery with occasional scenes of brutal violence.

    Classic Rudolph: a tone of sweet-edged, slightly kooky melancholy, a terrific cast mostly left to its own devices and a few intriguing moments. Not, I'm sorry to say, a movie.

    This one's a pile of crap that won't start.

    Let's be real clear about this: You've got to be suffering from some major trash-culture brain damage to enjoy a movie like Ready to Rumble.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    A lugubrious sub-"Exorcist" demonic possession film that's absolutely no fun at all.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    A dumb and sloppy movie.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    This fantasy crap, fake-o effects and all, betrays princes of dice, masters of graph and wielders of bong.

    There's nothing scarier than a group of hormone-crazed 20-somethings, but this sequel isn't much more than a footnote of a footnote.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    The movie is terrible, but made with verve and sincerity, all of it pointed in the wrong direction.

    The misanthropic nadir of the director's crash-and-burn career.

    Indeed, this movie's offensive on many levels, but Arabs and Muslims don't get to feel special. It relies on stupid stereotypes because it's a stupid movie that's offensive to virtually everyone.

    They kill me, these guys. No, seriously. If they make any more of these movies, they might as well kill me.

    Inside of five minutes I felt an urgent, blinding hatred for almost all its grotesquely overprivileged characters.

    Gingival surgery would be more fun than watching this brain-draining, spirit-sucking attempt at a stoner spoof, which combines the cutting edge of frat-boy wit, the excitement of a mid-'80s made-for-TV action flick and the authenticity of a Renaissance Faire held in an abandoned field behind a Courtyard by Marriott.

    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    It's a dumb, ugly and, most of all, painfully unfunny movie.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 10 Andrew O'Hehir
    A fourth-rate Hollywood thriller that bungles a lot of thievery from better movies, is entirely bereft of suspense or excitement and features a leading man who absolutely, positively cannot act.

    With Men, Women & Children and the equally laborious “Labor Day,” Reitman has gotten trapped amid the crumbling edifice of Hollywood. It’s turning him old before his time.

    The worst movie of the new millennium.

    Summer's most shameless piece of trash since "Wild Things."

    Almost as degrading as any unmarked video you can buy in the back alleys of Manila, and, in its pseudo-significance and arty pretension, it's a lot less honest. I'm heartily sorry I had to poison an entire evening with it.
