    Oz tilts towards the mawkish, as the sham wizard learns the value of selflessness and an incessant Danny Elfman score tugs so shamelessly at your tear ducts that it would make the Tin Man surrender his heart on the spot.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Not just instantly forgettable, but beginning to fade from memory even as its images still play across the screen.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    An ultra-touchy-feely race-relations, civil-rights drama as imagined by theme-park organizers, with every character painted in broad strokes in a story that eagerly tugs at every available heartstring -- and rings false at every turn.

    Strictly for the birds.

    The most resounding thuds in From Justin to Kelly, however, come from the musical numbers.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    This is a dark, vulgar, brooding turnoff of a movie, minus the steady laugh quotient needed to appease Sandler's core constituency.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Further proof that titular antagonist Jason Voorhes is ready for retirement -- to videostore shelves.

    Pic has a stagy, boxed-in feel. Both visually and energetically, it suggests something that has been done onstage to the point of mechanized repetition. And even though Whaley is supposed to be playing a disillusioned character, it's the actor himself who seems fatigued and over-rehearsed.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Begins as a serious, straightforward account of the origins of the cocaine trade and "gangsta" culture in 1980s Harlem, but then downward spirals due to a weak plot and gratuitous violence.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    A chiller resolutely without chills, in which even the pool water always seems heated. And inasmuch as the pic never owns up to its own trashiness, it's not even enjoyable camp.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Apocalyptic gobbledygook.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Initially promising, but quickly disappointing.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Torpid, academic vanity project for helmer-thesp Rodolphe Marconi.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    A dreary, weary psychosexual thriller that's neither sexy nor thrilling.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Calamitously uninspired and borderline incoherent, new pic lacks even those fleeting pleasures (namely, a sense of humor) that made the first film a passable popcorn attraction.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    An anemic sitcom pilot dragged out to an excruciating 108-minute running time.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Viewers of this Sam Raimi-produced, sub-"Amityville" scarefest are likely to hold the real grudge.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    An insufferable, self-conscious cult movie, The Chumscrubber smugly heaps on half-baked ideas about media violence, the homogeneity of suburbia and the disintegration of the American family.

    Less compelling than all the behind-the-scenes Sturm und Drang. Even Baldwin, who waived his directing credit in favor of the pseudonymous Harry Kirkpatrick, has warned fans to stay away.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    A schlock supernatural shocker.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    The tension rarely rises above a low boil.
    • 33 Metascore

    Shyamalan is clearly a director-for-hire here, his disinterest palpable from first frame to last. Nowhere in evidence is the gifted "Sixth Sense" director who once brought intricately crafted setpieces and cinematic sleight-of-hand to even the least of his own movies.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Neither particularly fast nor furious.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    Easily one of the dopiest major studio releases since Elie Samaha got out of the business.
    • 12 Metascore

    Features fewer small-town scares than a rerun of “Dawson’s Creek” and more wooden acting than a marionette theater. Memo to Rob Zombie: Don’t fear the competition.

    What sounds like a veritable B-movie wet dream — with that master of the subzero scowl, Jason Statham, starring in a screenplay written by Sylvester Stallone — turns out to be considerably less than the sum of its parts.

    Lutz’s acting muscles aren’t nearly as well developed as his pectorals and deltoids, and while the role may not call for a master thespian, it at least begs someone who can emote without looking like he’s straining to execute a dead lift.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    The result is unquestionably an auteur film, but one festooned with so many bad and unnecessary ideas that one can’t help wondering if a more modest, hemmed-in version of the same project might not have proved more effective.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Scott Foundas
    The pic falls well short of its efforts to combine the raucous vulgarity of the “Hangover” movies with Cameron Crowe-ish depth of feeling.
    • 52 Metascore

    Clooney has transformed a fascinating true-life tale into an exceedingly dull and dreary caper pic cum art-appreciation seminar — a museum-piece movie about museum people.
