    A quarter of the way through the film, it’s all just too much.
  1. When he runs out of material to tickle with, Black dips into his musically tenacious "deedle-diddle-dee" for some sure-fire ridiculousness.

    So if you like Ferrell or Cohen, go ahead buy some popcorn, check your brain at the door, and you will laugh.
  2. Their movie is cold, and I mean that not as a weather pun, but in the sense that it's impossible to warm up to a character who sees the awful things happening around him strictly in terms of how they affect him.

    It's clear the creators wanted to bring our hero back but were uncertain where to put him. Sadly, Indiana Jones is not relevant amidst the atomic blasts and disillusionment of the Soviet era, and he's not even recognizable in the pixilated universe of recent cinema. To quote the great Dr. Jones, "It belongs in a museum!"
  3. Zoo
    Constructing the narrative (made up mostly of dramatic reenactments, although given the static nature of many of the scenes, the word "dramatic" is pushing it) obliquely, Devor and co-writer Charles Mudede weave in the thread concerning the individual referred to as "Mr. Hands" into the film almost casually.

    Those expecting a return to the depravity and menace of Abel Ferrara’s 1992 notorious original will be disappointed.

    As a bonus, it contains, at least, the best death-by-carrot scene in the history of film.
  4. Although McDormand's performance is consistently focused -- one would expect no less from the actress -- the movie itself can't settle on whether Miss Pettigrew is Mary Poppins minus the sugar spoonful or just plain Carrie Nation.
  5. American audiences have seen Ju-On. And The Grudge just goes to show why remaking it is such a frivolous idea: What's the use in wasting so much energy if the filmmakers aren't going to fix what was wrong with the movie in the first place?
  6. The Proposition can be appreciated as a strong technical exercise, but it fails to resonate on any deeper level.
  7. It's really rather dull, lacking in any originality or flair that might draw attention to the cause. It's lightly comedic, lightly dramatic, lightly tragic, and, therefore, lightly entertaining.
  8. Borderline reprehensible, High Tension is a living nightmare, but then, why else would you see it?

    Ultimately, The Jane Austen Book Club amounts to little more than a lukewarm collection of half-realized rom-com scenarios not fleshy enough to warrant their own movie.
  9. If only the love story were a little more convincing, she might have saved the world and the movie.
  10. Dead Man's Chest is best summed up by the scene where Sparrow and Will battle each other atop a runaway water wheel. Like the characters, this movie is just running in circles.
  11. The movie becomes less fizzy once DeCillo decides to make A Statement (a rather incoherent one at that).

    Those who have never seen the series should either swim rapidly in the other direction or be willing to dive right in and suspend disbelief about the multitude of things that just don't make sense.
  12. One of those slow-baked Southern character studies about taking an old flat tire of a man and finding some way to love him anyway.
    • 48 Metascore

    There are moments where Spacey and Bosworth have their fun in spite of the film -- they both adopt Southern "characters" as disguises at one point, which is a hoot -- but overall, 21 is a busted hand.
  13. The entire film is a thrown-together collection of gunfights and in-jokes. The film is more concerned with expanding this universe of seedy tequila bars and dusty city streets than it is in telling a narrative story.

    Predators biggest failing is that it manages to make its sci-fi violence absurdly boring.
  14. It's too bad that the movie induces eyeball-rolling almost as much as it does armrest-clutching.
  15. Overburdened with themes and symbolism, Baltasar Kormákur’s latest effort seems more apt for a term paper than a movie review.
  16. Even Depp's increasingly tired antics can't lighten the dour mood; in fact, Sparrow is completely overshadowed here by Rush's lively turn as Barbossa.
  17. Everyone involved figured that sentiment trumps sloppiness. Original Soundtrack
  18. You're most likely find that Eragon is less a gem and more cubic zirconia -- nice to look at but not as preeeecioussss as its recent fantasy bretheren.
  19. When it's all over and it's apparent that entire sections of the film are irrelevant and the paper-thin love story leaves you unsatisfied, hold your tongue, and try to remember that this film is v-e-r-y important.
  20. Saw
    Spoiled by its own insatiable desire for envelope-pushing flair; it’s wider-scoped when it should be intimate, splashy instead of subtle, icky but not scary.

    Lambs feels five years too late.
