  1. Newell has followed up a respectable adaptation of a Harry Potter novel with an ignominious translation of something more delicate and literate. It's hard to recommend this movie to anyone except perhaps the MST3K crew.
  2. Clumsily incorporates elements of "Ghost," "The Sixth Sense," and "Field of Dreams."
  3. A muddle of a film - an overlong bore that either mistakenly thinks it's something more than a humdrum romance or has incorporated a variety of pretentions as window-dressing.
  4. Devil will do little to dispel the growing belief that Shyamalan is a one-trick pony whose horse has keeled over. The laughter during the trailer was sadly prescient; the film is a joke.
  5. Cloying and at times annoying, Life as We Know It is egregiously manipulative, whoring itself out for a few unearned tears.
  6. This movie works best as a sleep tonic. Somewhere isn't just frustratingly slow-moving; it's inert.
  7. The only arena in which Gulliver's Travels plays an adequate game is in visual effects.
  8. Season of the Witch teeters on the edge of slipping into the "so bad it's good" camp, but ultimately ends up being merely bad.
  9. Akin to watching a bad sit-com that never ends.
  10. The recycling goes as deep as the dialogue, which is a mangled and blended refrain of clich├ęs.
  11. This movie isn't bad in the way some incompetently made movies are bad; this is bad because there's much skill evident in a pointless endeavor.
  12. Did You Hear about the Morgans? Yes and, to be perfectly frank, I wish I had been spared the experience.
  13. LaBeouf, who appeared to hit a low in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," has sunk to greater levels of incompetence here.
  14. The 2011 version of Conan the Barbarian looks cheap and feels rushed. The few good elements are dwarfed by a generic, nonsensical plot and shoddy storytelling.
  15. Trespass is a home invasion movie, but not a clever, taut one; it's sloppy and obvious, with curves so un-serpentine they might as well be straightaways.
  16. The only reason any male could have for seeing The Vow is the hope of getting laid afterwards. The only reason any female could have for seeing The Vow is if she views the plots of Harlequin romance novels as the height of modern storytelling.
  17. Lockout is painful. Not painful in the way Uwe Boll or "Sex and the City" movies are painful. But painful enough that I kept waiting for Nicolas Cage to show up. Or Katherine Heigl. Or, god forbid, both.
  18. Battleship has the IQ of a rutabaga and doesn't require much more intelligence than that to watch. Despite spending copious amounts of time with back story and so-called character development, it's really all about the explosions.
  19. Those who don't understand what it means for an actor to "sleepwalk" through a performance need only watch Men in Black III; there's no shortage of examples.
  20. It's either a failed experiment or a movie that was rushed through production so Allen could fulfill his one project-per-year commitment.
  21. The Watch is a studio turd marinated in eau de skunk that stinks worse than week-old fish.
  22. A slow, meandering misfire of a movie.
  23. A preposterous thriller where the only thing more disappointing than the ending is the 93 minutes it takes to get there.
  24. Labeling The Call as "relentlessly dumb" would be an overestimation of its intelligence. This is as brain-dead as a movie can be and it assumes the audience will have the I.Q. of a rutabaga.
  25. Everything in G.I. Joe: Retaliation is perfunctory - technically proficient but soulless. It's not exciting. It's boring.
  26. To work, The Host would have required a visionary interpretation rather than the mundane telling that Niccol opts for.
  27. It's tired and dated with too few laughs to justify the stultifying attempts at drama and the impossible-to-swallow plot contortions.
  28. "The Hangover" was high octane fun. "The Hangover Part II," despite its repetitive nature, was enjoyable. The Hangover Part III is some kind of hideous experiment in mass consumer torture.
  29. Everything about it feels stale: the actors, the story, the comedy, everything. And, to make matters worse, that everything goes on for an interminable two hours.
  30. In R.I.P.D., we have a legitimate train wreck of a motion picture: a film that doesn't work on any level. It's not funny. It's not exciting. It's not engaging. It's a waste of time and money.
