    A horror pic with a new gimmick that likely will spawn an entire subgenre of more substandard rubbish.

    Love conquers all. Sadly, Yoo's film does not.

    The writer-director has the talent to dig deep and lay bare the assumptions behind our idea of justice and our notions of right and wrong. In The Devil's Knot, he settles for an encyclopedic, if skin-deep, presentation.

    A weak "Toy Story"-esque animated film for preschool kids made with little imagination, little art, and even less soul.

    It's hard to know whom to blame for this futile exercise: Morris or Rumsfeld.

    Mildly enjoyable despite its basic mediocrity.

    Slapdash, with dialogue and plot points that were cliches in Dickens' era, the pic sends up, then reaffirms, all the values the media sell us each holiday: compassion, forgiveness, tolerance.

    The Best of Me is neither worse than his other films nor particularly better. At 118 minutes, it is, however, one of the longest. Interminably long, dragging out its molasses heart through what seem like three different endings.

    Just call this movie "The Hangover: AARP Strikes Back."

    Identity theft and credit-card fraud never looked as exciting or sexy as in Plastic, a frothy little heist movie from Britain that starts off with great promise, only to devolve midway into an empty derivative shell of a film.

    The Man on Her Mind, a mirthless, stagy romantic comedy about a pair of New York loners, isn't so much a story as a threadbare concept - a one-liner, really. An old, used-up one at that.

    Hollywood's latest entry in that tried-and-true genre, the disaster movie, is . . . well, it's like . . . a totally gnarly roller-coaster ride!

    Sadly, Annabelle, a cheap, sleazy, low-budget prequel meant to explain the origins of that particular doll, is as undistinguished, uninteresting, and unscary as the worst of the Chucky films.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Tirdad Derakhshani
    An ineffective, derivative, and awkwardly executed mash-up of ghost flicks and voodoo movies.

    There are a few nice scares in The Colony, and the female lead, Rookie Blue's Charlotte Sullivan, looks really, really cute in blond dreadlocks. But she can't save the movie, nor can her impressive costars, Bill Paxton, Kevin Zegers, and Laurence Fishburne.

    Filled with embarrassing gosh-golly moments about non-Western cultures, it's a staggering, and insulting, example of cultural myopia.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 12 Tirdad Derakhshani
    A happy-smiley Christian fairy tale disguised as a hard-hitting shard of social realism.
