    Year One is not really THAT bad and not ENTIRELY without laughs.
    • 55 Metascore

    It's a perfect role for Jolie, whose seductive looks always seem to be concealing something dangerous, even predatory, and she brings out a looseness in Pitt, who fares much better in comedic roles than when playing things straight and stoic (i.e. Troy).

    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    When Ephron gives Ferrell and Kidman a musical number that's supposed to be sweet and uplifting, the movie feels downright creepy.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is sloppy and scattershot, and proud of it. It wears its slipshod, anything-for-a-laugh structure like a badge of honor: Smith is nothing if not self-deprecating.

    Six years after its release, "City of God" is still electrifying and fresh: It hasn't aged a bit. City of Men, though, already feels strangely stale.

    It's much easier to linger on his youthful idealism than on how that idealism eventually manifested itself. It certainly makes for a much prettier picture. But when your subject is Ernesto ''Che'' Guevara, it is disingenuous.

    A psychological thriller in serious need of both psychology and thrills, Cassandra's Dream is a wan, exceedingly minor drama by Woody Allen, who has started to recycle himself in London the way he had long been recycling his New York City pictures.

    Turns resoundingly dumb in its last 40 minutes.

    • 49 Metascore

    Suffers from a fatal lack of purpose. This sleek, visually inventive but frustratingly flat movie is made up entirely of throwaway bits -- occasionally amusing, even ingenious bits. But still, they're just bits.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Certainly pleasant, and occasionally endearing, but it's also strangely empty and unsatisfying, like hearing about someone else's wild dream: You can appreciate the details, but you don't really care how it turns out.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Great actors can do more than carry a movie on the strength of their performances: They can also elevate it to a height it does not necessarily merit, and for much of In the Valley of Elah, Tommy Lee Jones does exactly that.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Like binging on a bottomless box of truffles: Tastes good and sweet at first, but after a while, you start feeling a little green.
    • Miami Herald
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Emotes mightily but says precious little.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Aside from the thin characterizations, The Eagle never manages to convey the importance of the heroes' quest.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Bottle Shock often feels out of place on the big screen, but it would probably play a lot better as a weekly half-hour TV show.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    The Brothers Grimm gives you plenty to look at, but it's not much to see.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    A continuous parade of slaughter.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is an exceedingly slight tale whose entire second half consists primarily of special effects and wonderful set designs.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    An artsy bore.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Although the picture is nominally the story of a man with a murderous temper, it is less a thriller than a metaphor for the plight of illegal immigrants.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    This laborious, talky, fleetingly engaging, ultimately silly picture is about as good a movie as anyone was ever going to wring from Dan Brown's inescapable bestseller.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    You can only string an audience along for so long with scary masks and sudden appearances at the window, and after a while, the suspense starts seeping out of The Strangers, because you realize that's all there's going to be to the movie.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Evans – always a reliably dynamic and vivacious screen presence – can't do much to bring the character to life. As far as superheroes go, Cap remains a bit of a stiff.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    While We’re Young starts off as an empathetic, funny look at middle age and winds up as profound and schematic as a Neil Simon play — or, for the younger set, an episode of "The New Girl."
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    The Fountain is probably too muddled and half-baked to even attain cult status -- but you can still see what writer-director Darren Aronofsky was striving for, and even if his reach exceeded his grasp, his intentions were both admirable and worthy of respect.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    Where the book was preciously and carefully crafted, the movie just feels precious.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    After a funny, highly promising start, Don't Come Knocking starts to fall apart, displaying all of Wenders' weaknesses, too.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is pleasant overall and occasionally comes up with a big laugh. When the movie's over, though, it evaporates from memory, just like a one-night stand that didn't go nearly as well as you'd hoped.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Rene Rodriguez
    The Good Shepherd, for all its noble intentions, manages to make even espionage boring.
    • 68 Metascore

    James Franco looks more bored and distracted in Rise of the Planet of the Apes than he did when he was hosting the Oscars: Watching the movie, I kept waiting for him to pull out his iPhone, aim it at the camera and take a snapshot while mugging sheepishly. Has there ever been a film with a less engaged protagonist?
