    An hour and 20 minutes into this two-hour-and-11-minute endurance test, a hungry Kaiju attacks the city of Hong Kong and eats the neon signs of every Cantonese restaurant in Victoria Harbor. It’s sort of worth waiting around for.

    Awkward music cues and choppy camera work add baggage to a film so overwrought that its excesses seem more unintentionally silly than bleakly disturbing.

    • 25 Rex Reed
    What passes for a plot has been done a thousand times before — in much better films than A Single Shot.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    The script, by Melissa James Gibson, is as scintillating as a dead rodent.

    Big Ass Spider, lazily directed by Mike Mendez and unwisely written without a trace of necessary camp by Gregory Gieras, aims for satire and settles for stale shtick. It ends with the song “La Cucaracha,” leaving the door open for more insects to come. Cockroaches, anyone?

    • 25 Rex Reed
    This awful rehash, badly directed by Vincenzo Natali (Splice), reeks of stale, recycled ideas.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    The film has a restless, nomadic quality similar to Kerouac’s lifestyle, but there’s no there there.
    • 56 Metascore

    I guess I’ve seen worse teen sex comedies, but it’s rare to encounter one this stupid.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    Lamely directed by Brian A. Miller, who co-wrote it with Mr. Fairbrass, this is the kind of curiosity that used to fill the bottom half of a double feature in the day when we still had drive-ins. The real outsider is the movie itself.

    Movies get crazier and more incomprehensible every day, but you don’t know demented until you see Winter’s Tale.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    Incompetently directed by Scott Coffey and weakly written by Andrew Cochran, a rotten egg called Adult World is anything but.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    It’s nice to see a movie about kids that extols the virtues of intelligence over sex, sports, bad music, ugly clothes and tattoos, but aside from some nice autumnal shots of Ivy League college campuses, there’s nothing in HairBrained to sustain much interest.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    It takes just under two hours of tedium before you find out what’s in the bag, and you might be sorry you waited.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    I’ve had bigger scares from the windows at FAO Schwarz.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    The only reason to suffer through a grim wack job called McCanick is to see the late Cory Monteith in his last film role.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    I certainly wish Ms. Johansson hadn’t shown up at all. She’s never less than interesting to watch, but Under the Skin is a big waste of her time.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    A pointless nightmare of pretentious science fiction twaddle with no plot, no coherence and no heart.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    Mr. Franco must have had a very boring adolescence, because Palo Alto is a very boring movie.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    There’s nothing remarkable or even remotely intriguing about the dyspeptic gang of submental sad sacks in this dull, flat fiasco.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    The Moment is another in a long string of thrill-free psychological “thrillers” that fail from start to finish.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    A tedious exercise in tedium.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    Rage is another formulaic re-tread that needs its brakes re-lined.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    The movie doesn’t know if it wants to be a comedy, a morality play or a cautionary tale about being careful what you wish for. I wish for fewer disasters in my future like A Long Way Down.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    Pretentious (it thinks it’s a comedy but descends into depression faster than you can fill a Prozac prescription) and self-indulgent (whole scenes are thrown in for no reason except to stretch a five-minute sitcom pitch into nearly two hours of phony, contrived tedium), it’s a mess begging for coherence.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    It simply turns into another slash-and-dice horror flick, replete with enough screams for three more installments of the "Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    This movie is so staggeringly violent and stomach-souring disgusting that when it screens, it is occasionally greeted with boos and almost always accompanied by massive audience walkouts. Don't say I didn't warn you.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    The prevailing mood of Child of God, published in 1973, is filth, alienation and inertia. You can have it.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    A pointless, pathetic and profoundly boring send-up of universally acknowledged anti-social author Philip Roth, Listen Up Philip is a juvenile experiment in pretentious idiosyncrasy by amateurish writer-director Alex Ross Perry. He calls his miserable protagonist Philip Friedman, but who’s kidding who?
    • 88 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    An unrecognizable Michael Keaton seems to have aged 40 years since the last time he appeared on the screen, but he’s still the best (i.e., only) reason to suffer through a miserable load of deranged, deluded crap masquerading as a black comedy called Birdman.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 25 Rex Reed
    Based on an overly imaginative book by Stephen King’s son Joe Hill, it’s a movie that doesn’t exactly unfold as much as hyperventilate.
