  1. The young Smith has energy, but not the acting chops. And he's no miracle worker. The burden of carrying this dull, lifeless movie is just too much. And it's hell on an audience. It's not a good sign when you sit there thinking – Make. It. Stop.
  2. One look at the dreadful mess that is Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will turn your whisper into a primal Cage scream: MAKE THIS MOVIE STOP!
  3. There is no wrong time to flush this turd. The only bright spot comes during the outtakes over the final credits.
  4. Despite the strong presence of Kick-Ass star Chloe Grace Moretz as Cassie, the movie is selling the same old YA yada yada yada that made phenoms of "Twilight" and "Divergent."
  5. Plods along in the Oscar-winning, yawn-inducing tradition of "Out of Africa," making me yearn for something less "National Geographic."

  6. The Bay-man has made the worst and most worthless Transformers movie yet. I know, hard to believe, right? How could any summer blockbuster be as dull, dumb and soul-sucking as the first three Transformers movies? Step right up.
  7. Don't hammer this film for trying to get inside the head of Mark David Chapman before he shot John Lennon outside the rock legend's New York apartment on December 8th, 1980. Hammer it instead for failing to do so with any depth or insight.
  8. Political satire is so rare that it's a shame to watch the reliable Ralph Fiennes and Donald Sutherland lend their talents to one that is blind to its own incompetence.
  9. The call on this one is: dead on arrival.
  10. Aiming for the heartfelt hilarity of "Superbad," I Love You, Beth Cooper is just super bad.
  11. It galls me that Hollywood thinks we're shallow enough to swallow this swill. Or am I just being paranoid?
  12. Independence Day: Resurgence pretends there's fresh ground to cover. There isn't, but director Roland Emmerich makes a good show of faking it.
  13. I don't know what to say about the acting, writing and directing in G.I. Joe because I couldn't find any.
  14. What's onscreen is a godawful mess, leaving the actors to suck wind while the film collapses around them. If you've never played the game, you might as well watch the movie stoned.
  15. Misery is enduring this Rocky Horror Paris Show.
  16. Will Ferrell and Danny McBride can find the dumb fun in anything. Too bad that Land of the Lost is so much less than anything.
  17. Exhibits rank incompetence on every level.
  18. First-time director and screenwriter Hue Rhodes shows no discernible talent for dialogue, humor and, especially, pacing.
  19. Talk about your pious frauds. I've got a better way to show your disgust for Internet scum: Don't see Untraceable.
  20. Add Showtime to the pile of Hollywood dreck that represents nothing more than the art of the deal.
  21. If you stay and watch the endless end credits, there's a short scene that hints a sequel is coming. That's what I call real pain.
  22. Teenagers, even non-ninjas and non-turtles, have been eating up this cinematic waste product for weeks now. In one way, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a triumph for producer Michael Bay in that it is equally as godawful as his "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and a hit nonetheless.
  23. A dull, dumb and unforgivably dated thriller, free of thrills and any kind of perfection.
  24. Nothing works. Nothing.
  25. A trio of appealing actors is trapped in an action-spiked romcom death-sentenced by a lack of humor, heart and a coherent reason for being.
  26. Gives us good reason to believe that January really is the month Hollywood studios use to bury their cheesiest mistakes.
  27. What I can't figure is why anyone would want to release this tripe in theaters just when Fanning has nearly lived it down. They ain't no friends of mine, or any other moviegoer.
  28. The bloodsuckers in this thriller may not have much bite, but here's a movie that can -- it's guaranteed -- drain the life out of an audience in minutes.
  29. This is Berg's debut outing as a director, but other first-timers, namely Joel Coen (Blood Simple) and Danny Boyle (Shallow Grave), had it all over him for blending horror and hilarity.
  30. Environmentalists are up in arms. "Where did the shit go?" they want to know. The answer is painfully obvious: into the screenplay.
