  1. Taken 2 grabs everything that was surprisingly enjoyable about the original film and batters it into the ground.
  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. 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.
  6. Skyline is a piece of junk, even in a movie climate littered with expensive - though sometimes fun - junkiness.

    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.
  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.
  8. 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.
  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.
