  1. A slumming Spike Lee is still better than most directors at the top of their game, but Oldboy isn’t just Lee’s worst movie, it’s practically his “Wicker Man”.
  2. While the art of action filmmaking depreciates, Harlin remains steadfast in his classicism, even if the movie doesn’t have the foundation to support him.
  3. The film is confusingly and sloppily put together, edited down to the point that the few genuine jokes of Let’s Be Cops are given precious little time to breathe, before zipping into the next sequence of increasingly irrational events.

    Even the love story doesn’t work, because Moretz and Blackley exhibit zero romantic chemistry, and it’s never exactly clear why the pair love each other so much.
  4. Tina Fey is in the film, for heaven’s sake, and I love her to pieces, but by now we know to expect something humdrum when she’s on a movie screen.
  5. The absolute antithesis to the pioneering punk spirit it tries to portray.
  6. In fact, The Internship rivals the aggressively bland “Larry Crowne” for sheer tepidness, if not worse due to the exhaustive product placement for a company whose real-life presence is unlikely to soon wane.
  7. There is a legitimate film in here somewhere, buried deep beneath the rubble of its terrible script and editing.
  8. Not every book should be made into a film and, as appears to be the case with Winter’s Tale, not every book can be (especially this one).
  9. A shapelessly propulsive mess of pop psychology and poor drama.
  10. Thanks for Sharing can’t quite find its footing as either a drama or a comedy, and near the end it’s actively sliding off the rails.
  11. Hollow, uninteresting and false.
  12. The Smurfs 2 is not so much of a film as it is a collection of images and sounds that bludgeon you.
  13. A film that inserts banal plot devices and endless cutesiness in place of where the “good parts” should be.
  14. The first sixty minutes of Pompeii are awful, bordering on unwatchable... The final forty-five minutes of the movie however are, by sheer force of will, irrefutably entertaining. At least there’s raining death in the form of fireballs smashing up the place.
  15. Sound nonsensical? It is.
  16. Not recommended for anyone but the hardiest of animation completists, this one is a definite skip. There’s nothing to note, nothing to grasp, nothing in which to find mirth. You could Escape from Planet Earth, but you’re better off just ignoring it.
  17. An active affront to logic, placing us in a world we firmly know doesn’t exist.
  18. Like a swollen boxer's eye, it should have been cut.
  19. Embarrassing and weird.
  20. The Wolverine reveals itself to be a film in desperate need of a point, in dire need of consequences and in a wandering search of any semblance of emotional weight.
  21. I can't imagine why De Niro, who is a fine comedian, is still coasting on his gangster act, and surely Crystal can do something other than play himself...it feels a little like an exercise in laziness.

  22. Atrocious bit of by-the-numbers screen filler. And anyone who easily lapses into sugar comas is advised to stay far, far away.

  23. The small reward is the cool, confident presence of DMX, who shows signs of being a great leading man. But only in a much smarter, more original movie.
  24. So very general in its characters and story that it actively keeps you from enjoying the simple pleasures of a movie like this.
  25. The humor is, at best, thudding. At its worst, it's breathtakingly stupid and offensive.
  26. Mangold ultimately can't displace memories of "An Angel at My Table," "Lilith," "The Snake Pit," "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" and other, stronger accounts of young women placed in mental institutions.
  27. Quite shameless in imitating its predecessors.
  28. Gun Shy can't rise on wobbly legs, and its real potential is lost for good.
  29. Afailed attempt at a hipster screwball comedy. Very failed.
