  1. An exercise in mediocrity. It's curious how little of the TV series' charm and appeal can be found in this uneven, plodding excuse for a reunion.
  2. The acting is a big part of Baghead's problem. Three of the four protagonists are played by performers who do little to distinguish themselves.
  3. The film has energy but isn't well paced. Nothing about it quite gels.
  4. The Clone Wars is the last nail in a coffin that has been propped up ever since George Lucas sold his creative soul in the quest for a few more pieces of gold.
  5. The problem with the movie, whose title compresses "religious" and "ridiculous" into a single word, isn't that it milks more than one sacred cow but that it does so with minimal subtlety and intelligence.
  6. The Rocker is more disappointing than it is outright bad. One expects something a little fresher from Wilson.
  7. W.
    Superficial, uninformative, and inert, this two hour snoozefest isn't even inflammatory enough to stoke a righteous anti-Bush brushfire. W. does for recent history what Oliver Stone's epic "Alexander" did for ancient times.
  8. There are good things to be said about The Spirit, but not enough of them to outweigh the bad.
  9. In pandering to Hollywood standards about how stories like this should unfold, LaBute has lost his edge.
  10. It's easily the weakest entry into this ever-expanding category and is inferior to its subtitled source material. Quarantine implies "stay away" and that's not bad advice.
  11. Its failure to live up to even modest expectations is a blow. There's nothing righteous to be found here.
  12. It has impeccable production values but feels like a "Masterpiece Theater" production of a Harlequin romance novel.
  13. Transporter 3 is the most frustrating entry into a series that has never set the bar terribly high.
  14. As punchy and energetic as the first few moments are, the rest of the film quickly falls back into mediocrity.
  15. It's disposable entertainment at its most extreme.
  16. The film provides ample opportunity to attack the MPAA's hypocrisy. Max Payne is a bloodbath, yet it manages a PG-13 rating by keeping the explicitness of the killings just a whisker shy of what would be necessary for an R.
  17. Just because a movie is ambitious and challenging doesn't mean it can't also be tedious and at times unbearable.
  18. Four Christmases is waste of time and a disappointment, but it's also relatively painless.
  19. This is essentially a Steven Seagal movie without the Ponytailed One, and may appeal to those who enjoyed Seagal's rather bland, cookie-cutter action films.
  20. It lacks the simple elegance and intelligence of the earlier film, and employs special effects and pointless action scenes to replace passages of dialogue.
  21. Che
    What potentially could have been the greatest asset possessed by Che - its unapologetic length - turns into its greatest detriment.
  22. This is a rare time when young ones will get more out of a Sandler movie than their parents, who may have grown up with him when he was on "Saturday Night Live."
  23. Viggo Mortensen looks the part but never brings it home with great conviction or passion. I never believed in the character and that greatly diminished the film's ability to argue its ethical case.
  24. The first film was significantly better and, therefore, is the place to start for anyone with a modicum of interest. Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is an also-ran that is likely to be appreciated only by completists.
  25. This is not a story that cries out to be remade every 15-20 years. And, while the special effects and acting are getting better, the story isn't.
  26. The best bits in this film fall short of being inspired, but they are outrageous.
  27. The end result, while it provides moments of kinetic entertainment, is too repetitive and uneven to be satisfying.
  28. Science fiction fans will feel gypped, disaster movie fans will appreciate about 10 minutes of screen time and be bored by the rest, and no one else will care.
  29. Perhaps the thing that most surprised me is how fingernails-on-blackboard awful the music is.
  30. Chock full of high-tech action, with a lot of chasing and shooting and explosions.
