    At 126 minutes the movie is excruciatingly long, but it is still too short to pack in all the subtle changes in character he means but fails miserably to convey.

    This splatter film is set in Norway, but rest assured, it sticks with the formula. The young people to be killed off are just as obnoxious as their counterparts in American gorefests.

    The jokes run hot, cold and tepid.

    If only it wasn't such bloody nonsense.

    Second-banana material.

    Legends of the Fall never makes you think too hard; its woes-of-a-proud-family formula takes a back seat to a self-conscious visual style that strains toward the level of myth.

    The movie equivalent of the fruitcake you get every year from the folks back home. It's brick-heavy and full of nasty bits you don't want to put in your mouth, lovingly wrapped in pink cellophane.

    So it's hard to know who gets the blame for Payback. I say we cut Mel some slack and put the hex on Helgeland.

    A dimwitted, fill-in-the-blanks horror opus that slanders a fine and useful mammal.

    An hour into the picture, Spade offers a pretty funny imitation of belter Neil Diamond, but it's a long 60 minutes for such a pitiful payoff.

    Maybe there's a real use for Carrie 2 after all. Stand it up against the original, and you have a pretty good lesson in what's happened to the movies in the last couple of decades.

    Ineptly written and shot like a fashion mag, rings hollow throughout. It's a long, long way from "Jules and Jim."

    A complete misfire.

    A way-below-par golfing comedy.

    Dante's Peak expands the concept of badness in movies.

    Otherwise, the movie, which borrows from a dozen pop sources and improves on none of them, is pretty much a washout.

    With the exception of a couple of inspired moments, Mary Reilly is merely a curious variation of an often-told story.

    Godawful.

    Grumpier Old Men certainly isn't relying on its mawkish and hokey story to put warm bodies in the seats. There's no reason to see the picture - a sequel to their 1993 hit, “Grumpy Old Men" - other than to relish the talents of these two veterans, plus Sophia Loren, a newcomer to the series.
