    Saw
    Promoted as "the year's scariest movie," it's anything but.

    Sexist, racist humor abounds, with Jews and gays especially taking a beating. I don't always object to non-PC humor -- but I like it to be funny, and here it isn't.

    Schwartz throws in so many characters and implausible subplots - none worth mentioning - that Perception sinks under its own weight.

    Let the French stick to love stories and leave stupid comedies to Tinseltown.
    • 43 Metascore

    The documentary tells us little we don't already know and is overwhelmingly one-sided. It would make a nice TV infomercial, but certainly doesn't deserve a big-screen release.

    If the sight of naked, sweaty French hunks gets you going, well, then, Three Dancing Slaves is a must-see.

    Zhang Yimou, one of China's best-known filmmakers, deserves a great big lump of coal in his holiday stocking thanks to his ludicrous soap opera The Flowers of War.

    There is, of course, a maximum of blood and gore. Sometimes the director's ideas work; often they don't.

    Isn't very good. Not only has Ritter made his documentary a one-sided one, but he commits the journalistic sin of using himself as the film's main talking head. In other words, he's interviewing himself.

    The Italian film industry must be in sad shape when its latest import to the US is a tired bit of trash from 1997, To Die for Tano.

    Huppert is wonderful, as usual, and she's to be congratulated for taking this daring role. But, alas, even she can't save Ma Mere.

    Anybody involved in the underground scene might get a kick out of Maestro -- but others will likely be bored stiff.

    Maybe being able to look back in time is comforting for Block and company, but what makes him think complete strangers give a damn about his not-especially-interesting family? I certainly don't.

    Mainstream moviegoers will be put off by the subtitles, and art-house fans will be insulted by the story's shallowness.

    Garcon Stupide features the best gay seduction scene ever filmed on a Ferris wheel. Unfortunately, you have to sit through the entire movie to get to it. Whether you want to will depend on your interest in explicit gay sex.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    A cheesy and unpleasant splatterfest.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Boring.

    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    We keep waiting for one of those outlandish musical treats to bring some life to the clich├ęd script. Kunder throws in a few breaks, but they're tepid and brief.
    • 61 Metascore

    The story lacks focus. The senses blur as wives and ex-wives come and go, and Harry regularly falls off the wagon, only to reform the next day.

    Directed by Susan Montford, While She Was Out is a straight-to-DVD movie making a brief stop in theaters.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Ranks high on the squirm meter. But, unlike in most of her earlier work, there's no emotional payoff.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Has a promising start. But it quickly becomes tiresome and cliché-ridden - not to mention depressing and pointless.
    • 48 Metascore

    Andy Lau and Siu Fai Mak, the men behind the successful Hong Kong police thriller trio "Infernal Affairs," should be arrested for directing Initial D.

    There's little reason to see the claustrophobic Chronicling a Crisis unless you have a fascination with the Kolleks. Watching the vanity project is like being forced to sit through a friend's boring home movies.

    Sex can be fun and exciting and wonderful. It also can be deadly boring, as in Psychopathia Sexu alis.

    Splinterheads might suffice some late night on cable, but that's about it.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The film plays like one long commercial. The music's cool, but you're better off buying the CD.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    There's potential here, but the script is entirely too, shall we say, Hollywood. There's even a dog-poop joke.
    • 39 Metascore

    Yunus would seem to be a prime candidate for a movie about his work. Unfortunately, director Holly Mosher's by-the-numbers documentary Bonsai People isn't the answer.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The characters are too cliched to be funny, and Jensen's script can't stay focused long enough to make an impression. Where is Lars von Trier when we need him?
