    The Caller qualifies as something of a Holocaust movie, with flashbacks to World War II France. Guess who the two boys we see grow up to be?

    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The stars look bored out of their minds when the fourth episode of the franchise stalls between racing sequences.
    • 56 Metascore

    Dreamworks Animation's clunky and wildly unimaginative Monsters vs. Aliens really doesn't have a clue what to do with the [3-D] technique.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    An exceedingly silly historical fantasy.

    Seems to go on for several days and nights, though in fact it lasts just 105 minutes. I checked my watch. A lot.

    Just to give you a taste of the movie's sophisticated idea of wit, it also makes fun of gay men.

    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The cowardly producers have banished the grit and darkness of Parker’s original.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    After a slightly promising start, this great-looking but ultimately deeply confusing and unscary sci-fi/horror opus turns into a quite boring rehash of M. Night Shyamalan's post-"Signs" films.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A witless homage to "Shampoo" and "American Gigolo" that's brain-dead on arrival.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Barely watchable, despite the presence of such pros as Michael McKean and Jane Lynch.

    When New York, I Love You was previewed in Toronto a year ago, there were two additional segments that have since been cut. So you'll have to wait for the DVD to see just how bad Scarlett Johansson's directing debut is.

    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Neither a concert film nor a documentary but a ghoulish “event” offered just in time for Halloween, This is It is sadly -- and reprehensively, if you ask me -- the movie equivalent to the National Enquirer’s infamous post-mortem shot of Elvis Presley.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A shrill farce that strains credibility even by the standards of black comedy.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Produced with the best of intentions by a California church and directed without distinction by first-timer Brian Baugh, To Save a Life would be bland and boring even as a half-hour after-school special.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Charmless and underdeveloped knockoff of "The Santa Clause."
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Cisneros is an appealing actor, but he and Falling Awake get buried under a welter of clichés.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Dear John is the sort of movie that gives tearjerkers a bad name.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A cringeworthy, unfunny example of a culture-clash romantic comedy.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Repo Men is a rare film where Toronto plays itself. It's also the first I've ever seen where a typewriter is used as a lethal weapon.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Quite a slog, with most of the acting strictly amateurish save the veteran Ed Lauter as a fish and game inspector.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Never rises much above yawn-worthy.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Excruciatingly unfunny.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    This is a terminally whimsical vanity project that would probably have been a chore to sit through even in its original intended format, a 20-minute stage monologue.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Apprently novice filmmaker Angela Ismailos' definition of a Great Director is one who's willing to sit or walk with her while she lobs innocuous questions and gives herself lots of awed close-up reaction shots.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A maudlin and unintentionally hilarious romantic weepie.
    • New York Post
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The stars' utter failure to create sparks is only one of the problems with this Labor Day weekend dump job.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    Milks the very real problem of "organ tourism" for all the melodrama and car chases it's worth.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A sloppy vanity project, this rambling and toothless Hollywood black comedy stars veteran filmmaker Henry Jaglom's girlfriend, Tanna Frederick.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    A surprisingly unengaging and charmless fantasy from a director whose previous films ("Across the Universe," "Titus," "Frida") were, despite their other issues, never boring.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 25 Lou Lumenick
    The only thing remotely scary about Monsters is that Magnolia is releasing this boring scare-, suspense- and gore-free horror movie (which reportedly cost less than $100,000) on Halloween weekend.
