    Much has changed in the two decades since the release of Joel Schumacher's Falling Down, but, as The Angriest Man in Brooklyn flatly reminds us, the grievances of America's petulant middle-class men apparently have not.

    Beneath exhausts the appeal of its thinly sketched characters almost as soon as they're trapped together in the mine's emergency bunker, and it isn't long before Ketai, tiring of human drama, turns instead toward the supernatural.

    The most charitable thing you can say about This Is Where I Leave You is that it is resolutely innocuous — a nothing of a movie, neutered and sanitary.

    Just as it seems on the verge of yielding a nuanced view of the Holocaust’s emotional and psychological fallout, Anita B. recedes into platitudes and cliché.

    We all have childhoods to remember. Art needs to do more than just remind us.

    Mancini, who served as an executive producer, is glorified and exonerated, yet it's his inability to render either process interesting that ultimately sinks the picture.

    Has an elegance roughly on par with a Goosebumps novel, refusing to follow its own contradictory rules and barely sustaining a pretense of internal logic.

    Koyaanisqatsi was a marvel of smeared and kaleidoscopic light; Visitors is a dull etch of digital blacks and grays.

    the film's occasional fits of comic inanity — locals ranting about aliens, conversations about two-headed dogs — are certainly embarrassing. But its attempts at melodrama are outright repugnant.

    The director, Jennifer DeLia, doesn't seem aware of the humor inherent in this scenario, which may be why, despite proving thoroughly ridiculous, Billy Bates remains an unabashedly self-serious film.

    An amorphous melange of ill-fitting reference points and misappropriated aesthetics, a lumbering family blockbuster both tiresome and wholly indistinct.

    It's a particularly risible nothing whose premise alone betrays the paucity of Franco's imagination and wit.

    Little more than an exercise in sustained contempt, a petty little missive directed at anyone who dares to wield a pen.

    Many Hollywood films are founded on privilege, but few are as open and nasty about their racism, misogyny, and homophobia.

    This is a guy who seeks to mock idiocy? Physician, heal thyself.

    Tommy Wirkola's film suggests A Knight's Tale as penned by Seth MacFarlane.

    Beautiful Creatures basically spits in the face of a legacy of literature founded on feelings of exclusion and social alienation.
