    Borrowing liberally from the "Exorcist" and "Omen" movies, and with little regard for credibility, The Ring Two has a familiar ring to it.

    Ignore the furiously overplotted, headache-inducing story -- derived from a series of comic books -- and focus on the exquisitely drawn Japanese animation.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Long-winded and often over-the-top Italian soap opera about a neurotic, middle-class Roman family.

    If you were wondering what “12 Years a Slave” might have been like as a two-part episode of “Masterpiece Theatre,” you might want to check out this unsatisfying but not uninteresting oddity. It renders another historical story about race with exquisite taste but not much in the way of passion.

    There is probably an amusing movie to be made about camps that try to "rehabilitate" homosexuals - but this thuddingly stupid satire isn't it.

    Probably would have yielded a more interesting documentary than this sugary feature.

    A schmaltzy filmed record of a Nashville concert given by the legendary former rocker, who has morphed into the new Kenny Rogers.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Sporadically hilarious but more often just plain crass and contrived.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Trimming half an hour from this bloated, 143-minute blockbuster would have highlighted the film's treasures, not the least of which is Johnny Depp's endearingly eccentric performance as Captain Jack Sparrow.
    • 58 Metascore

    A good cast and disciplined direction add some distinction to Ric Roman Waugh's Felon, which is basically the old tale about an innocent man corrupted by a stay in prison.

    Burt Reynolds and Sally Field they're not, but you could do worse for mindless late-summer entertainment than Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell in Hit & Run.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Wears out its welcome fast because of its artistic pretensions and self-absorbed characters. You'd be better off renting "Manhattan" instead.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Much sillier - and the movie's nearly two-hour running time seems to last nearly as long as a vampire's afterlife.
    • 62 Metascore

    Curious George skews very young, but parents should be warned that it arrives not only with the worst ad slogan in recent memory ("Show me the monkey"), but a full line of plush toys and related tie-in merchandise.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Well-meant but rambling little indie melodrama.
    • New York Post
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The biggest load of New Agey hogwash to grace the big screen since Spacey's "Pay it Forward."
    • 69 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    This lavish coffee-table-book of a movie gradually reveals itself as an uninvolving, crashing bore.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    The Good Night is at heart a mediocre Sundance variation on the Dudley Moore-Bo Derek alleged classic "10."
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    In the end, this relentlessly nihilistic crime-caper thriller adds up to less than the sum of its impressive parts.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Rambles on for nearly two hours with subplots that go nowhere -- and half-baked leftist political commentary -- before focusing in for a quietly devastating climax.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Basically the Mike Tyson saga reduced to its B-movie essence.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    So exploitative and misogynistic that its last-minute dramatic turns and pleas for tolerance and understanding come off as manipulative as its heroine.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Directed with sledgehammer subtlety by Dennis Dugan ("I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry").
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A mildly funny, stereotype-stuffed comedy.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Deschanel manages to make Winter Passing almost matter. That's real talent.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    A very elegant and fit-looking Omar Sharif appears as the on-screen narrator and Kate Maberly ("The Secret Garden") plays his granddaughter in a framing story.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    It may take a scorecard to keep track of the complicated relationships in this sorry clan.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    While Amen works as a history lesson, it's less effective as a thriller, since the outcome is sadly all too well-known.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Though quite watchable thanks to its cast, the overly ambitious Don McKay ends up as confused as its main female character.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Lou Lumenick
    Godardian title not withstanding, Zeina Durra's not-uninteresting slice of the downtown Manhattan demimonde is too concerned with being cool to work up much in the way of political outrage, much less narrative drive.
