  1. Someone describes his writing as "snarky, bitter, witless." The last part pretty well sums up this movie.
  2. The scene where a pilot bails out in Stealth is so over-painted with CGI that it doesn't look as real as the sequence starring Shepard that inspired it in "The Right Stuff," a movie made with model airplanes.
  3. A murky and morbid dirge of a gay romance.
  4. Lucas' films are like Cher's face. No matter how many times you rework the same material, it's never going to be new and fresh again. And so it is with his latest, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
  5. The sometimes painfully sincere and slow-moving For Greater Glory clearly aspires to be inspirational, but history won't cooperate. The Cristeros triumphed not because of their faith, but because the United States exerted diplomatic pressure to protect its oil interests in Mexico.
  6. Gould’s lugubrious presence is always welcome, and Rue plays her lovelorn part with verve.
  7. It’s doubtful that Scorsese will redo this new Lau thriller, which is OK because the Chinese original is all fans need.
  8. A totally ridiculous and incoherent sci-fi adventure.
  9. Reiner, who came in to rescue this picture after the original director was fired, once gave us "When Harry Met Sally," but seeing him work now is like watching Willie Mays hobble around in a Mets uniform during that pathetic final year when he hit .211.
  10. Time to pull the plug on this brain-dead franchise.
  11. It's a reasonably funny religious satire that takes potshots at easy targets but is quite watchable due to the participation of two Oscar winners and two Oscar nominees.
  12. Dazzles the eye, numbs the mind and may cause deafness in some cases. Did I mention to bring along some Excedrin?
  13. The characters are so cartoonish, it's hard to care on any level -- except that it wastes such talented performers.
  14. This excruciating adaptation of the innocuous '70s cartoon show makes the film version of "Josie and the Pussycats" look sophisticated by comparison.
  15. A schlocky thriller choking under the weight of its own psychobabble.
  16. The film looks like it cost 10 cents, but a lot of the jokes are gold. Hollywood, take notice of writer-director James Westby.
  17. Her star billing notwithstanding, Jolie has perhaps the ninth-largest part in the movie (behind seven humans and a dog), playing Cage's ex-girlfriend.

  18. About as edgy as a cup of Ovaltine, A Walk to Remember is an old-fashioned teen romance so sweet and free of irony that criticizing it feels like taking a baseball bat to a sack full of newborn kittens.
  19. Was Alma a masochist? Repressed? Neurotic? A pre-feminist? Don't look for insight here.

  20. I’m a sucker for films with great surfing footage, let alone wacky ’70s hairstyles. But this overlong, cliché-infested Aussie period drama tested my patience.
  21. A long, tedious and often unintentionally hilarious adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s sci-fi follow-up.
  22. Huppert is wonderful, as usual, and she's to be congratulated for taking this daring role. But, alas, even she can't save Ma Mere.
  23. Mansome is basically a reality-TV episode, with similar production values and precisely the same depth of perception.
  24. So swaddled in good intentions that it's like taking a very short journey cushioned on all sides by air bags. That are stuffed with cotton candy.
  25. There is fun to be had at Van Helsing, but it requires considerable suspension of disbelief at the apparently deliberately ridiculous plot necessary to bring the three monsters together.
  26. Writer-director J.S. Cardone's low-budget mishmash offers precious little in the way of thrills and chills, much less coherent storytelling.

  27. A predictable tearjerker whose main redeeming feature is that you don't actually see any of the angels in the title.
  28. A deep disappointment to fans of sci-fi and the once great John Carpenter.
  29. Some may find it titillating; more will find it offensive and deeply disturbing.
  30. There's not much story but there are plenty of colorful, almost David Lynchian drug freakouts, as well as lots of sick violence.
