    Anyone looking for the lowdown on haute cuisine will be sorely disappointed: devoid of emotion, context or narrative, the baffling avant-garde techniques and extreme politesse of the lab become oppressively dull.

    Silver Bullets neither pleases the eye nor stimulates the mind.

    Cocaine Cowboys is a tabloid headline, a movie as oppressive and inarticulate as the lives it represents.

    James Cameron upstages the ocean in Deepsea Challenge 3D, a shallow vanity project that invites us to join him in marveling at his own daring.

    You may not believe it's possible to bore people to death with a film about risking your life, but The Wildest Dream comes shockingly close.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    The battle scenes are as lacking in heat and coherence as the central love story.

    Whichever side of the aisle you inhabit, you will leave The Iron Lady feeling disgusted; you will also feel cheated - of information, insight or even an identifiable point of view.

    This one-note documentary from Ramona S. Diaz is as hostile to conflict as the group’s songs themselves.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A limp urban comedy not nearly as whimsical as its title.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    This painfully awkward product fails on almost every level.

    Aiming for a moody portrait of psychological distress, Mark Jackson directs with a sluggish pace, an abstract style and a dismal aesthetic that rebuff involvement.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A lackadaisical dive into backwoods barminess and masculine neuroses, this low-budget paean to indoor plumbing and rampant facial hair doesn't unfold so much as unravel.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A dreary, interminable drama written and directed by Eva Aridjis, is exactly one-third of a good movie. That third is Frank Wood's beautifully modulated and modest central performance.

    This emotionally manipulative, heavily partial look at the purported link between autism and childhood immunization would much rather wallow in the distress of specific families than engage with the needs of the population at large.

    More focused on philosophy then feeding, “Kiss” marries a mash-up of undead clichés (I know, let’s have another lingering shot of the moon!) to hilariously stilted conversations.

    Maddeningly muddled and frustratingly counterintuitive... the story shuttles between Hong Kong and mainland China without a noticeable gain in logic or reduction in decibels.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Rehashing characters and plots from the "Law & Order" playbook, the director, Rafal Zielinski, supplements his material with religious iconography and more gauzy close-ups than a Barbra Streisand marathon.

    As artificial as the inseminations it celebrates, Delivery Man is a soggy comedy more focused on stimulating your tear ducts than your funny bone.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Dark, airless and packed with psychological hurt that seems to spring from nowhere, this angry morality play, tucked inside a police procedural, suffers from a crippling lack of back story and characters whose relationships are fraught with unexplained complexity.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 30 Jeannette Catsoulis
    A limp sci-fi comedy with fewer laughs than a meeting of Abductees Anonymous.

    Advancing without a single original idea or surprising moment, Austenland seems torn between poking fun at the British and lampooning Austen’s many American fanatics — a riskier enterprise, considering that they’ll be needed to fill theater seats.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 20 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Boorish, bigoted and borderline pornographic.

    Luridly earnest and laughably immoral, Illegal Tender is an old genre movie with a new look. Call it Hispanixploitation.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 0 Jeannette Catsoulis
    Clueless, directionless and altogether pointless.

    The dialogue is dreadful (though we are at least spared the usual hokey Russian accents) and the wrap-up ridiculous, the only mystery being why this peculiarity was ever greenlighted at all.

    The film never finds its dramatic footing. Nor, sadly, its common sense.

    A mess from start to finish — though, judging by the ending, this story won’t be over any time soon — Insidious: Chapter 2 is the kind of lazy, halfhearted product that gives scary movies a bad name.

    A stunningly witless revival of the infamous British film series about a girls’ boarding school.

    In grabbing for the heart this one-size-fits-all fable sadly ignores the mind.

    The movie speeds up and slows down as though controlled by a director in the grip of competing medications. For those who make it to the final beatdown, however, the only pill worth taking is the one that makes you forget.
