    That it’s not totally dialed in throughout makes it a victim of the same thing most bad movies fall prey to: having the spark of a great idea rested awkwardly on top of a spinning mess of execution.

    Ride Along is a strong recommend when Hart is talking, but merely a mediocre attempt at a movie when he’s not.

    • 11 Laremy Legel
    Relentlessly awful.

    Where The Banshee Chapter thrives is the overwhelming claustrophobia of the film.

    Like a swollen boxer's eye, it should have been cut.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 67 Laremy Legel
    Educational content, clever and photorealistic dinosaur CGI, and John Leguizamo voicing a prehistoric bird. What else would one need for a fun movie stew?
    • 28 Metascore
    • 65 Laremy Legel
    One terrible sub-plot away from being a legitimately good movie.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Laremy Legel
    The animation is beautiful, the music is catchy and the lyrics are clever.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Laremy Legel
    A film that strives to make you think, and even tug at your heart. But the central foundation of the entire enterprise is so shaky that the walls and plaster are falling down all around you, even as you’re trying to make sense of it all.

    A Stallone / Schwarzenegger film that isn't completely beneath them.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 58 Laremy Legel
    Could have been a fun film, but instead merely displays the trappings of one.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 66 Laremy Legel
    Little chance of finding realism or romance but the laughs are there.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 62 Laremy Legel
    Parkland mines some interesting scenes, if not in an entirely coherent fashion, resolving as more of an interesting concept than a fully rendered and effective film.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 28 Laremy Legel
    The best word to describe it is strange, though it could have been halfway decent (yes, all the way up to halfway decent) if the third act hadn’t succumbed to the crescendo of craziness that had been building for the first hour.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 35 Laremy Legel
    A film that inserts banal plot devices and endless cutesiness in place of where the “good parts” should be.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 48 Laremy Legel
    What’s truly unnerving about the whole thing is how good certain scenes are, and how great a few of the performances come off, especially Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep – they’re doing amazing work, only it’s the equivalent of building a lovely home on a foundation of quicksand.

    Rush is one of those rare sports movies that’s compelling as both a drama and a spectacle.
    • 50 Metascore

    Afternoon Delight will both depress and engage an audience, usually just depending on the minute of the movie you find yourself watching.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Laremy Legel
    This is a story that has everything you’re looking for, provided that you’re looking for absolutely nothing.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 64 Laremy Legel
    Full of truth that's ultimately diluted by a lack of focus.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Laremy Legel
    It’s half of a good movie, and another half that no one asked for or wanted.
    • 34 Metascore

    The Smurfs 2 is not so much of a film as it is a collection of images and sounds that bludgeon you.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 88 Laremy Legel
    Boasting a compelling cast of characters, Wasteland” is a very smooth feature film debut from director Rowan Athale, and one that invites repeat viewings.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 31 Laremy Legel
    The Wolverine reveals itself to be a film in desperate need of a point, in dire need of consequences and in a wandering search of any semblance of emotional weight.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 36 Laremy Legel
    There is a legitimate film in here somewhere, buried deep beneath the rubble of its terrible script and editing.
    • 58 Metascore

    Particular credit must be given to Samuel L. Jackson’s voicing of Whiplash and Paul Giamatti’s work on the voice of Chet. The chemistry between the two is awesome, hilarious even.
    • 19 Metascore

    A movie of fools, by fools, for fools, Grown Ups 2 is easily forgotten, which isn’t as bad a feature as you’d think.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 63 Laremy Legel
    Despicable Me 2 is fun, especially near the culmination. Structural issues aside, it’s impossible not to like these characters, all of them, rendered with love, always entertaining even when the story around them doesn’t make much sense.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 35 Laremy Legel
    Thanks for Sharing can’t quite find its footing as either a drama or a comedy, and near the end it’s actively sliding off the rails.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 79 Laremy Legel
    A bawdy and belligerent comedy, meant mostly for folks looking for nothing more than to enjoy a few laughs.
