  1. Hop
    There's nothing in it to inspire excitement or even a mild glimmer of delight; it's almost offensive in its dullness.
  2. Hits a new low of idiocy and crassness.
  3. Rubber could have been a modest horror novelty, a wicked, malevolent version of "The Red Balloon."
  4. "Piranha 3D" was ridiculous, gory and fun, everything Piranha 3DD is not.
  5. The talking animals, though less tough to look at than those in "Marmaduke," are murder on the ears: Maya Rudolph as a neurotic giraffe and Sandler voicing a monkey could take the paint off of a Buick.
  6. Skyline is a piece of junk, even in a movie climate littered with expensive - though sometimes fun - junkiness.
  7. It really is just sensory bombardment, and in two dimensions you have even less of a grasp of what's happening and of what you're looking at than the poor bastards on-screen.

    The original "Saw" was smart enough to tease its audience, to literally restrain its characters and gradually dial up the dread, setting the table for a truly shocking twist. The latest just wants bigger and bigger bangs.
  8. Paranormal Activity 2 sinks much lower than it needs to in order to get a rush out of us - and in the end, the rush isn't even that great. The movie puts us through the paces with minimal payoff.
  9. Take Me Home Tonight isn't nearly as much fun as the '80s actually were. Even worse, it's less fun than most '80s comedies were - and that's bad.

    The Roommate has notched an unbelievable achievement; it makes the second rate "One Tree Hill" seems like it was about something.
