    Dazzles the eye, numbs the mind and may cause deafness in some cases. Did I mention to bring along some Excedrin?

    Macht is the best thing in A Love Song for Bobby Long, but his intelligent performance doesn't justify a tough, and very long, sit.

    Somewhere along the way, Borstal Boy became fatally compromised.

    This version, flatly directed and risibly written by Billy Ray, is saddled with endless coincidences, questionably motivated characters and an utterly laughable climax.

    One big hunk of cinematic moussaka with lots of appetizing shots of food.

    Rarely does a movie go so thoroughly wrong in so many ways.

    Beautiful Boy ends up being an endurance test.

    Though Cho occasionally connects with her targets, more often than not she seems as intolerant and hate-filled as she accuses them of being - and that's not funny.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Light It Up would be a strong candidate for the year's most irresponsible movie - if it were remotely believable.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    It's pretty hard to make a dull movie about Henry VIII and his complicated love life, but The Other Boleyn Girl, a failed Oscar contender, manages to do just that, with yawns to spare.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This sequel sorely misses the presence of Tom Wilkinson, whose out-of-the-closet character grounded the first film (but died at the end).
    • 68 Metascore

    Even an engaging performance by Margot Robbie as the proverbial last woman on Earth isn’t enough to save Z for Zachariah from becoming yet another ploddingly pretentious Sundance dud.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    The best drag movie since "Vegas in Space." That's hardly a huge recommendation.

    When you awake, it may all seem like a bad dream - but why is your wallet missing $11? Scary.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Repackage clichés and stereotypes with attractive young performers in a simple-minded script that panders to the teen audience.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    This is the sort of movie that requires you not only to suspend disbelief, but to check your sanity at the ticket counter.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Relentlessly dopey and vulgar.
    • New York Post
    • 34 Metascore

    That Eulogy has any laughs is largely a testament to the understated Romano -- he and Deschanel are the only ones in the cast who aren't straining to be funny.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    A pretentious, unsatisfying and ultra-slow-moving thriller.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Something most have gotten lost in the translation.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Features less than 10 minutes of music in its mercifully brief 83-minute running time.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    There are a few good jolts - and a moderate amount of spurting blood - but things pretty much proceed exactly as you think they will.

    Michael J. Bassett's Solomon Kane is been there, done that.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 38 Lou Lumenick
    Though it boasts excellent performances by Anna Friel and Michelle Williams as bosom buddies whose lives meander over three decades, it plods on with a wearying predictability and some truly terrible dialogue.

    O'Brien also provided the lethargic direction and collaborated with Messina on the cliché-infested script, which is long on booze-filled confessions.

    Disco may still be dead, but Benji: Off the Leash! resurrects another dubious artifact of the '70s - the crudely made family films starring that lovable mutt.

    For much of Flannel Pajamas I wondered if the couple's big problem was that Stuart was secretly gay. Nothing so interesting - he's just a narcissistic control freak and she's off-puttingly needy.

    In the hands of the formerly promising director Joe Carnahan, this stylish, nihilistic, hugely derivative mash-up of Tarantino and Guy Ritchie (before wife Madonna ruined his career) is fun for roughly half an hour.

    Love and Honor may be politically clueless, but Hemsworth and the student journalist he hooks up with (fellow Aussie Teresa Palmer of “Warm Bodies’’) do make an undeniably attractive couple.

    A low-key Field is the best thing about Two Weeks, which is set in a Wilmington, N.C., where everyone mysteriously sounds like he just got off a Los Angeles freeway.
