    It's a mess, and one that even the pickled cowboys behind me found yawningly tedious, and that's not something I ever thought I'd be saying about a Sam Raimi movie with the word “dead” in the title.

    Home may be where the heart is, but I kept wishing this poor silly girl would up and move.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Sporadically funny, the film seems weighted down, literally, with bulging, bulbous Murphys flatulating endlessly.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    It's not a great action dust-up by any means.

    The Collector feels like the final, welcome nail in the bizarrely popular torture-porn coffin.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Has all the sugar-injected horsepower of a 6-year-old on a Big Wheel.

    It’s Brisseau's penchant for the flamboyantly perverse and the perversely flamboyant, however, that might have been best left secret.

    Saw
    Saw has its moments, and most of them are brutal in the extreme, but ultimately it's one tremendous misfire that will either leave you laughing or, possibly, gagging. Not what I'd call a winning combination.

    Forty-five minutes in, I was already glancing at my watch and wondering why the only lively actress in this film was playing the dead girl. Go figure.

    The emotions are turbocharged and the topic is eternally relevant, but that's not enough to save Two Girls and a Guy from being a whiny, snoozy bore.

    Much to my dismay this is not an unauthorized sequel to Abel Ferrara's 1979 East Village art-world freakout "Driller Killer." This is instead a dispiritingly mediocre tweener comedy from some very talented people who appear to be experiencing a delayed sophomore slump.

    An exercise in unintentional farce.
    • 37 Metascore

    It pains me to say it, but Afterlife, the latest installment in this seemingly eternal zombie apocalypse franchise, is considerably more entertaining than George A. Romero's most recent exhumation.

    For fans, however, Saw VI is, pardon the pun, a cut above the rest but not, sadly, by much.
    • 20 Metascore

    Truly, the greatest torture of all is boredom.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Eager to please, but it’s so lacking in real-world skate politics that it more resembles the chugging PG-13 mediocrity of Top 40 pop-punk-lite than the hard-core Black Flagisms of Peralta’s scathingly real doc.

    It is, in a word or two, everything that Poe's tales and poems were not: interminable and picayune.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    It's mediocrity at its most unremarkable.
    • 44 Metascore

    It's a testament to Bill Nighy's cadaverous panache that this third entry in the ongoing exsanguinators vs. lycanthropes franchise (that's vampires and werewolves to anyone not weaned on Famous Monsters) is as tolerable as it is.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Prinze, Lillard, and Biel are all pleasant enough to look at, but the film's Romeo and Juliet tropes are shopworn by now, and the movie gives us nothing else.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Indeed, the biggest acting coup here comes by way of Courtney Love, whose cameo as an obliging waitress is the best thing the film has going for it.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    At its core, a very manipulative piece of work.
    • 12 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    This new film version, sad to say, is a hollow shell of the original series.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    It's the type of film that begs to be called “charming” and by doing so instead ends up grating.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    The script, written by the three brothers, is ludicrous and incomprehensible, and plays cat-and-mouse games with what could have been some deeply funny comments on race, wealth, and, in one inspired changing-room scene, eating disorders.

    West (Con Air) saturates his imagery in a sickly, sulphurous stew of rotten-egg yellows and oranges, making a mediocre picture downright repellent at times.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Works just fine for the first half hour or so, but quickly devolves into a case of too much affection and not enough affliction.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Director Chappelle lays on the spook factor heavy in the first 30 minutes or so, but the film quickly devolves into a simplistic slash 'n' bash shoot-'em-up which goes nowhere fast.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Just as clichéd as its predecessor, and lacks the old-school charm of films like "Wild Style" and "Breakin’."
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Yeah, this movie's a dog, but you can't blame the producers for strip-mining the same old fool-proof formula to death … and beyond.
