    What a mess.

    Art-directed within an inch of its life, Sleuth has the smirky gloss of a project that everyone involved with thinks is terribly good, and terribly clever. These people - Branagh, Pinter, Law and the usually great Caine (even in bad stuff) - are laboring under an epic misconception. Sleuth is just terrible.

    Guy Ritchie's Revolver premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival two years ago September. That's 26 months on a shelf somewhere, depriving moviegoers the thrill of jaw-droppingly awful Ray Liotta line readings, of bloody shoot-outs, bags of money, cutaways to frosty babes sucking on lollipops, and even a bit of violent anime.

    Like a grade-school version of an Indiana Jones adventure.

    Drawing comparisons to "The Wire" may be unfair, but taken on its own, this anemic vehicle for Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan to mug and jive through is just weak, weak stuff.

    88 Minutes proves itself to be a maddeningly mediocre, ineptly manipulative "real-time" thriller.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Maybe if there was something going with the dialogue - snappy Chandlerisms, say, or even just sentences that made sense - the fussy digital artifice of The Spirit wouldn't seem so, well, dispiriting.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    An embarassingly unfunny, stumblebum adaptation of Toby Young's memoir.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Entertainingly goofy for about 30 minutes. And then, for the next two hours-plus, it's agony.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    A stagy, arty, and uncompelling account of the Welsh writer and his menage-y relations.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Another tale of Tinseltown drugs, sex and excess - has transferred itself to the screen with mind-boggling, laugh-inciting horribleness.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    The film quickly turns unintentionally, and unrelentingly, awkward.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Ostensibly a comedy, and a feeble and innocuous one at that, Post Grad is one of those what-were-they-thinking?
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    A pity-party of Hollywood narcissism.
    • 42 Metascore

    It doesn't help any that Wahlberg, looking perpetually dumbstruck, is among the clunkiest line-readers working in movies today.

    Struggles mightily to find its loony essence. But Bullock's apple-cheeked larkishness is all flailing limbs and bug-eyed reaction shots - there's no there there. Cooper's character is woefully underwritten, Church's is yet another vain anchorman-wannabe cartoon.

    • 38 Steven Rea
    The Wolfman feels like a film reedited and reworked so many times it has lost all narrative rhythm and suspense.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    A mercifully fleet and lamentably uninteresting adaptation of the DC Comic about a war-weary Confederate soldier.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Parents in a masochistic mood can compound the headache-inducing experience by paying extra for the 3-D version.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Murderously unfunny.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Cage appears as a knight of the Crusades, slogging across the continents, slaying infidels and unbelievers and anyone else who gets in his way. There isn't a minute when it looks like he's having fun.

    What distinguishes The Dilemma in this genre is its resounding unfunnyness, its emotional dishonesty, and the general unlikability of its cast of characters.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Nostalgia for the '80s - big hair, Madonna, cocaine, big hair, Duran Duran, more cocaine - is all well and good. Unless it's practiced with the charmless ineptitude of Take Me Home Tonight.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Beastly offers a thoroughly dopey reread of the "Beauty and the Beast" fairy tale.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Hands-down the most nightmarishly awful film of the year.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Completely unappealing people.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    This heavy-handed muddle of a cop thriller is just impossibly bad.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    The greatest lacrosse movie of the 21st century - and, unless I'm mistaken, the only lacrosse movie of the 21st century.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Laughably bad adaptation of a Guy de Maupassant novel.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Steven Rea
    Hobbled by a laughably bad script and a uniformly uncharismatic cast.
