  1. Much of this footage might have been illuminating, even fascinating, in 2003. But seven years on, it's ancient history lacking insight, hindsight or a fresh take.
  2. Why make a documentary about these marginal historical figures? Wouldn't one about their famous dad, author of "Death in Venice," etc., be more valuable?
  3. A glacially paced, extremely moist, terminally gloomy and cliché-laden romantic drama with a supernatural twist.
  4. Needlessly violent? No, Rambo is needfully violent. Johnny R. is a man constructed of violence.
  5. It’s too bad there’s already a movie out this week called “The Shallows”; it would work so perfectly for the new film from Nicholas Winding Refn (“Drive”).
  6. Herzlinger is a flack, not a filmmaker.
  7. There are a few scares, but not enough to make up for the murky script.
  8. Presenting a “true” adventure about a giant whale that supposedly inspired “Moby-Dick” raises tsunami-high expectations about In the Heart of the Sea that are crushed as thoroughly as if star Chris Hemsworth had brought down his “Thor” hammer on the entire enterprise.
  9. A genuine oddity that's more watchable than it sounds.
  10. An icky S&M thriller.
  11. Never decides whether it wants to be a black comedy, drama, melodrama or some combination of the three. The acting and direction are all over the map in this consistently depressing, if occasionally interesting, slice of life.
  12. A gorgeous snooze, somewhere between imitation Terrence Malick and a feature version of star Brad Pitt's notorious Vanity Fair layout with Angelina Jolie and their faux kids.
  13. A sour, plotless and witless comedy-drama based on the final Mordecai Richler novel, wants to remind you of "Sideways" and its forlorn drink-moistened soul search. Giamatti is an ideal casting choice, but even this talented actor can't sell a lovable-jerk
  14. This is one of those movies that's too cool to have a plot.
  15. A popcorn picture that thinks it’s “The Last Emperor,” The Karate Kid is about as likely to grab your youngster’s attention as any other propaganda film made by the Chinese government.
  16. Kontroll calls itself a thriller, and you will agree if you are excited by scenes of bored inspectors arguing with sullen straphangers.
  17. A sluggish and murky sub-Polanski-esque psychodrama.
  18. A gooey morass of indie-movie clichés, the wacky-family dramedy The Hollars marks yet another egregiously cutesy attempt to rekindle that “Garden State” magic.
  19. Honest but also derivative and crude.
  20. Feeble comic one-liners and slow pacing combine for a routine fangfest in this remake of the 1985 film.
  21. Relentlessly depressing.
  22. Overlong and grim to the point where some scenes are virtually unwatchable.
  23. Drab, despairing and pointless.
  24. Bright spots in The Greening of Whitney Brown are Bob the horse, a Gypsy Vanner who teaches Whitney about friendship and her rancher grandpa (Kris Kristofferson), who gets the Philly princess mucking out stalls.
  25. A caper comedy that forgot to put in the laughs.
  26. A better cast this time around — Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia, Sofía Vergara and Max Casella, with cameos by Jason Alexander, Stanley Tucci and Hope Davis — tries to breathe life into Goldman’s cliché-ridden plot.
  27. The bite and bark of Underdog are both pretty awful, but little kids might take this pooch for a walk.
  28. Chop up the film’s segments, replay them in any order, and things would make no more or less sense.
  29. This morbid, cruel movie seems leached of all things that might inadvertently give viewers pleasure.
  30. It's a shame that the book "We Were Soldiers Once . . . And Young" fell into the hands of writer-director Randall Wallace ("Braveheart"), a filmmaker who wouldn't recognize subtlety and understatement if they were to attack him in the street.
