  1. Movies like this usually have something interesting to say about the human condition, but not Nine Lives. It makes an insufferably obvious observation: we live boring lives, shit happens, and we die.
  2. As a satire on the media's infatuation with violence and murderers, Natural Born Killers hits the bullseye. The problem is, this is a one-note movie. It repeatedly hammers home the same point until the audience is bludgeoned into senselessness.
  3. Breakdown is the latest in a seemingly endless traffic jam of thrillers that opens strong but finishes abominably.
  4. This movie works best as a sleep tonic. Somewhere isn't just frustratingly slow-moving; it's inert.
  5. Three adjectives spring to mind when describing Marie Antoinette: odd, irritating, and tedious.
  6. An inferior product. It is not well written, well acted, or well directed.
  7. It doesn't take long for the The Signal's promising beginning to fade into a haze that leaves the viewer exhausted and irritated.
  8. Sluggish. Torpid. Boring. Those three words (and more) can describe The Yellow Handkerchief, a stultifying road trip movie whose inept screenplay is only partially counterbalanced by a trio of nice performances.
  9. The level of humor is sit-com-ish at best and the film's dramatic elements are bland and uninvolving.
  10. It's the most disappointing thing to come from the brothers in years.
  11. One could easily argue that, like many Ed Wood-type bad movies, The Faculty might be headed for the cult classic shelf in the video store. Unfortunately, it's not campy enough, and, worse, it seems to think it's being hip when it's just being dumb.
  12. Louder, flashier, and more hollow than anything else out there.
  13. Nothing short of a disaster -– easily one of the worst movies of the year.
  14. Alien 3 is, simply put, a mess. The writers have no idea how to tell a coherent, entertaining story. With the exception of a surprise or two, there isn't much worthwhile here.
  15. An insult to anyone who has tragically and unexpectedly lost a loved-one in a similar manner.
  16. It's the kind of thing that Shakespeare might have written if he had undergone a frontal lobotomy.
  17. Sometimes, even a little gratuitous nudity can't save a movie. This is one of those occasions. Cosmopolis easily trumps "To Rome with Love" as the biggest disappointment of 2012 from an established director.
  18. Very little of what made the written version so enjoyable has been successfully translated to the screen, and what we're left with instead is an overly-long (two hours and thirty-four minutes, to be exact), pedantic thriller.
  19. This is the kind of tearjerker that will cause audience members to cry, but only because they paid hard-earned money to see it.
  20. 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.
  21. Unfortunately, although there are a few nasty thorns here and there, The First Wives Club is a largely uninspired (and unfunny) comedy that collapses completely in the final fifteen minutes.
  22. A maudlin hack-job.
  23. Code 46 is like "Solaris" without the psychological depth and strong acting. The movie is flat, boring, pointless, and nonsensical.
  24. Tracey Ullman is a bright spot in an otherwise sordid, murky production.
  25. No amount of youthful charisma can alter the fact that, in the light of "Dangerous Liaisons", Cruel Intentions is a feeble and dissatisfying shadow.
  26. This is the sort of movie that gives "chick flicks" a bad name. It's a cross between inept melodrama and a bad sit-com.
  27. The resulting hodgepodge of unfunny, sophomoric humor and PG-13 T&A, frosted by a sheen of appallingly nauseous "drama," makes for such a noxious brew that it's amazing viewers stay in their seats for the entire production.
  28. It's either a failed experiment or a movie that was rushed through production so Allen could fulfill his one project-per-year commitment.
  29. Watching Imagine That, I was beset by a feeling of intense depression. Is this what Eddie Murphy has become?
  30. The only worthwhile portion of Twin Dragons is the climactic action sequence, but, to get to that, it's necessary to endure more than an hour of unfunny physical comedy and excruciating verbal interaction.
