  1. One can give Ice Cube props for attitude, but not much more.
  2. Clumsily incorporates elements of "Ghost," "The Sixth Sense," and "Field of Dreams."
  3. Schumacher doesn't leave an imprint on the film -- it could be the work of any second-rate director.
  4. The result is an atrociously unfunny, unromantic, and unpleasant product.
  5. More galling and tedious than funny.
  6. Asian horror remakes are typically not screened for critics, and Shutter is no exception. The studios know what they have: watered-down, lifeless shells of motion pictures devoid of characters, drama, or anything remotely resembling horror.
  7. With the flat characters and lifeless performances, it's a wonder that anyone in the audience can stay awake all the way through this dull and dreary production.
  8. Want to see a movie where almost everything takes place on a bus? Try "Speed." Jeepers Creepers 2 isn't even worth a peek.
  9. Disney has struck once again, taking a passably entertaining cartoon and turning it into a motion picture so lifeless that it's almost unwatchable.
  10. A lame collection of dumber-than-dumb gags, the quality of Big Fat Liar is on par with that of the worst television sit-com gorged to four times its normal size.
  11. It's not just about a disaster, it is a disaster.
  12. Watching a misfire like Thunderbirds illustrates how impressive the "Spy Kids" movies are.
  13. The only thing about Victor Frankenstein worthy of praise is the set design. Visually, the movie is impressive but pretty pictures are better left to postcards.
  14. LaBute has transformed the eerie, disturbing psychological thriller into an unintentional comedy. At times, The Wicker Man is hilariously bad.
  15. 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.
  16. This is sloppy filmmaking, and it's likely to wipe away whatever luster still remains to Shyamalan's reputation.
  17. The Watch is a studio turd marinated in eau de skunk that stinks worse than week-old fish.
  18. The Thirteenth Floor shows what can happen when film makers fail to recognize that they need more than a concept to establish a full-length motion picture.
  19. It's hard to say what is more responsible for the film's utter failure: Hopkins direction, the editing, or the screenplay. The result is such a muddle that one assumes each aspect deserves part of the blame.
  20. The recycling goes as deep as the dialogue, which is a mangled and blended refrain of clichés.
  21. The breath of fresh air, to the extent that one can be identified in the staleness of this recycled refuse, is John Cleese.
  22. It's a depressing experience to view something like Saw IV. It's not just the soullessness that's dispiriting, but the lack of invention. When a movie does little more than repeat what its predecessors accomplished with grotesque effectiveness, it's past time to tip this corpse into its grave and bury it.
  23. A godawful teen-magnet utterly devoid of entertainment value beyond the lure of its popular, photogenic cast and the dubious attraction of playing the “guess who gets it next” game. The little bit of cleverness that ends the film comes far too late to save this movie.
  24. Plastic characters, chaotic camerawork, lots of things blowing up, and an incredibly dumb screenplay. In short, it represents a great time at the movies for anyone who has recently undergone a frontal lobotomy.
  25. By trying to satisfy every kind of viewer, it's possible that Sphere may end up pleasing no one.
  26. The storyline is so infantile that it will appeal to young kids.
  27. Captures the essence of its TV inspiration, which is to say that it's not nearly as clever as it thinks it is. It also feels very, very long.
  28. It is a ghastly experience, and I left the theater feeling as if I had waded neck-deep through a stream of raw sewage.
  29. To work, The Host would have required a visionary interpretation rather than the mundane telling that Niccol opts for.
  30. Halloween II is an affront to Halloween and horror fans. It's the kind of cataclysmic misstep from which a franchise cannot recover. It has transformed Michael Myers from an iconic movie monster into a laughingstock.
