    Despite accusations of nearly succumbing to spotlighting beefs over beats, the film comes off as an honest representation of a great group that's not to be forgotten.

    Moviegoers looking for a thrill should go into The Cabin in the Woods knowing as little as possible about the film.

    Rock misses the boat in deciding not to relate Good Hair to non African-Americans more.

    Davis Guggenheim, the St. Louis director who won an Oscar for "An Inconvenient Truth," mines less controversial material this time around.

    Ice-T delivers a love letter to hip-hop with Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap.

    Moves along well until the characters and situations become too ridiculous to be believed.

    Targeted toward horror-film junkies looking for a terror throwback, You’re Next mixes gore and dark humor with yet another home invasion plot line.
    • 64 Metascore

    It honors the original throughout, including a memorable nightclub scene and a surprise cameo that's a huge crowd-pleaser, while at the same time giving updates to make it fresher and better than ever.
    • 63 Metascore

    More scenic than scary.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 63 Kevin C. Johnson
    There are enough F-bombs, a couple of chopped-off appendages and a flash of gratuitous male nudity to earn an R rating. But fans of producer Judd Apatow would expect nothing less.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    The four leads are entirely engaging including the manic Hart.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin C. Johnson
    The flashbacks, which get almost as much screen time as the present day story, are far more compelling.

    Moviegoers will know in the first five minutes whether the new B-movie Machete is their cup of tea - or bucket of blood.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    A full plate of tear-jerking drama is served here. And it’s even tastier than the first time around.

    If you're a zombie purist or a fan of "The Walking Dead," Warm Bodies is not for you.
    • 58 Metascore

    Why the bloodsucker and the wolf boy treat Bella as if she's the cat's meow is still a mystery.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    Perry manages to pull it off here, coming off completely likable and real, never insufferable and fake.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 Kevin C. Johnson
    It’s ultimately everything a modern horror movie should be.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    The finale is heavy on CGI. But it never takes away from this respectable entry into the horror genre that values chills over kills.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin C. Johnson
    Amid other wedding movies crowding screens these days, not to mention Perry's "Madea's Big Happy Family," Jumping the Broom feels instantly familiar. And tired.
    • 54 Metascore

    Energetic, colorful and packed with strong performances and musical numbers good enough to get by, Sparkle beams brightly.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    It comes together with a gruesome though excellent ending that some will find difficult to shake.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin C. Johnson
    The film is flat and lazy, and the audio mix is so low it sounds as if the audience is barely laughing. His cable comedy specials have better production values.
    • 53 Metascore

    Long before the blood starts spilling, it’s clear the new team has mostly nailed it. The reboot is as good a Carrie remake as possible, though it’s not truly a scary movie; the film takes its time living up to its R rating.

    After a nifty setup, In Time mostly fails to deliver as it gets lamer by the minute.
    • 52 Metascore

    Don't be late to this homecoming of director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson's horror series, which begins with a twisty opening sequence that's bloody fun.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    Despite the crass book promotion, the overlong film is harmless romantic fun that's well played.
    • 50 Metascore

    In the end, the movie is still a poetic injustice.

    It's hard to love and hard to hate.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Kevin C. Johnson
    Like the first movie The Purge: Anarchy, is trash masking as social commentary, and its depiction of unrelenting, sanctioned violence can be hard to stomach.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin C. Johnson
    Count Black Nativity as a more noble than notable effort.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    Overreaching fits of melodrama, occasionally stilted dialogue, and performances by Gooding Jr. and Howard that are mostly a series of serious faces can't keep the shiny Red Tails from taking flight.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Kevin C. Johnson
    Nothing more than uninspired mushiness.
    • 44 Metascore

    May be one of the most fun-free, angst-ridden teens we've seen on the big screen in a long time.

    During a summer with the usual transforming robots and young wizards, this chilly flick is a bit of a break, and there are worse options than letting this Orphan in the door.
    • 41 Metascore

    Good but not-good-enough schlocker.

    If The Virginity Hit had been filmed as a straightforward sex comedy, it could've been a riot.

    Director Rick Famuyiwa did much better when focusing just on African-American culture in films such as "Brown Sugar" and "The Wood." Here, in bringing together two cultures, he does neither any favors.

    That's right - this is an exorcism movie that those who actually saw "The Exorcist" in theaters can get into.
    • 37 Metascore

    Every character from the original is here, navigating the dating jungle, but this time there’s no pushing of Steve Harvey’s book.

    The so-so film isn't nearly as good as any of the movies that may have inspired it, or even its own knockout trailer.

    With movies like this, Lopez might want to start leaving low-end romantic comedies alone and look at her movie career's backup plan.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    This send-up of current horror movies is a go-for-broke hoot, a hot mess of a comedy that doesn’t have a lick of sense. And knowing that going in adds to the often knee-slapping laughs.
