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

    Energetic, colorful and packed with strong performances and musical numbers good enough to get by, Sparkle beams brightly.

    It’s ultimately everything a modern horror movie should be.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Moviegoers will know in the first five minutes whether the new B-movie Machete is their cup of tea - or bucket of blood.

    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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Despite the crass book promotion, the overlong film is harmless romantic fun that's well played.

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

    Perry manages to pull it off here, coming off completely likable and real, never insufferable and fake.
    • 53 Metascore

    It comes together with a gruesome though excellent ending that some will find difficult to shake.
    • 57 Metascore

    The finale is heavy on CGI. But it never takes away from this respectable entry into the horror genre that values chills over kills.
    • 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.

    The four leads are entirely engaging including the manic Hart.
    • 66 Metascore

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

    Why the bloodsucker and the wolf boy treat Bella as if she's the cat's meow is still a mystery.

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

    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.

    Good but not-good-enough schlocker.

    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.

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

    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.
