    Austenland embraces convention, and the result is a romantic comedy in which the ending seems not just foreordained, but promised via contract from the first moment of the film.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Tasha Robinson
    A film that veers between caustic comedy, melodrama, and heartstring-tugging, without finding the spark of sympathy that would hold the film together around its disparate tones.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Tasha Robinson
    It’s all tasteful and polished to a fault, but it feels like exactly what it is: an abbreviated version that preserves the high points, zips past the rest, and never approaches the depth of the full text.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Tasha Robinson
    It’s a brutal story and a heady high-concept idea, but it plays out through characters with no identity other than their symbolic ones, and through shouted, simplistic arguments that repeat the same points over and over.

    Fantastic Fear leaps all over the place narratively and conceptually, servicing the comedy of every individual scene without considering or linking the others. Some of those individual scenes are marvelous, though.

    The film respects its cartoon roots, but never its audience.

    Maleficent is out of balance in all sorts of ways. The effective silent sequences conflict with the frustratingly talky ones. The new material fits poorly with moments that directly quote the classic.

    Between the high-gloss, desaturated prestige-picture look of the film and the visibly fakey soundstage sets of the Jersey boys’ hometown, Jersey Boys feels plastic and artificial throughout. There’s no sense of authentic urgency or intensity to any of it.

    As clumsy as Quale is with the sequences of people shouting exposition back and forth, or delivering teary Blair Witch-style goodbyes into a camera that would have died long before its operators, he handles the CGI action with breathless intensity.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Tasha Robinson
    Its attempts to force comedy, tragedy, farce, action, and melodrama into the same story never quite fit.

    There's a ton of backstory behind Underworld: Evolution, which gets slightly denser and rowdier than its predecessor, but it's ultimately all in the service of a nigh-endless series of numbing, mechanical battles in which snarling protagonists and CGI monsters shoot, claw, and bloodily eviscerate each other. In other words, it's "Underworld," but more of it.

    As it is, the film perpetually teeters on the edge between a functional vehicle and a train wreck, and whenever Allen opens his mouth, he pushes it violently in the latter direction.

    The joys of watching a man carry out his own therapy onscreen are fairly limited.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    Unknown manages a hat trick by making its march toward the climax so tedious and unlikely that it unravels even as it gets off the ground.
    • 28 Metascore

    Even Eddie Murphy's endless hyper "Shrek" vamping is more entertaining.
    • 44 Metascore

    Unfortunately, it misses the one cliché that might have been welcome: the predictably plotted flashy dance movie where the actual dance makes it all worthwhile.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    Director Peter Webber can't do much about what's missing from the story: a soul or a sense of purpose.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    If this uninspired fight-fest had been delayed out of existence, it's unlikely anyone would have missed it.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    When the left-field ending finally arrives, it explains a lot, including why she's so off-putting and histrionic, but it never really explains why audiences should bother sitting through such a tangled mess.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    There's a noble cause buried under all the clumsy speeches, blatant manipulations, and foreordained conflicts, but the thudding lack of subtlety proves exhausting.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    Like the dream it so closely resembles, it's fairly distracting while it's going on, but it fades into forgettable nonsense by the light of day.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    Turns the franchise into a terrible '80s comedy.

    If Forman is trying to communicate that art isn't an effective way to change American society, he's proved his point neatly with this muddled, wandering dud.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    It's a squeaky clean pre-John Hughes, pre-Farrelly brothers throwback to an era where the words "Disney film" meant something: a movie free of crotch slams, gross-out gags, and tittery innuendo.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    Sheen is often the saving grace of Music Within, thanks to an aggressively profane wit that gives an otherwise tapioca-bland story a little edge.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    It's all good-natured enough. It just isn't actually good.
    • 36 Metascore

    The major problem is the death of a horror film: It's startling, but not particularly scary.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    No exciting action can cover the film's profound shallowness and repulsive attitude toward everyone but Christensen.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 42 Tasha Robinson
    While the film's gags don't always jibe with its sincere interviews of Middle Eastern citizens, or its worrisome encounters with the soldiers serving in dangerous territory--the constantly shifting tone provides as many hit bits as misses.

    Story remains Vanguard's weak point.
