    It’s certainly not good. But it’s not entirely dire.

    Bana is a likable actor, but he doesn’t bring any vulnerability or transparency to the part; it’s hard to tell what he’s thinking, if he’s thinking anything at all. And so, we move from one bleak, bludgeoning setpiece to another. But with each loud noise, the film loses us more and more.

    A sad, bad, parade of uninspired cameos and listless violence.

    Does anybody really find this crap scary anymore?

    This demonic possession story is at times so lame it makes the last "Paranormal Activity" flick look like a masterpiece.

    Whatever its politics, Gimme Shelter fails on multiple levels.

    The problem here isn’t the writer-director’s politics, but his stifling lack of imagination, his complete refusal to even attempt narrative dexterity.

    It should be wilder, funnier, nuttier.

    A weird mix of tired jokes, topicality, and crippling anxiety.

    Performance aside, the film never quite manages to figure out what it’s actually about.

    A Haunted House 2 is not a movie. It is a nervous breakdown.

    A wan little neo-noir whose intricacies inspire more tedium than suspense, The Bag Man is a good example of how to waste a solid cast.

    In The Best of Me, the melodrama feels so hurried and half-baked that the end result isn’t just disappointing. It’s borderline infuriating.

    Familiarity is not always a bad thing, though. "The Conjuring" breathed new life into old clichés; it showed that those creaking doors and possessed closets and white-robed figures still had the power to scare us. But that was a movie made with sensitivity and purpose. The blunt, lifeless Annabelle, on the other hand, sucks that life right back out.

    I don’t know, maybe it worked as theater. Onscreen, it’s torture.

    Left Behind is biblical in its silliness.
