  1. Except for a rare scene of shaggy charm, nothing works. Nothing.
  2. The movie ultimately reveals itself as a pretender with no balls. Creatively, it's all wet.
  3. To shine in a turd like this shows Brody has the stuff that -- damn the Oscar jinx -- makes an actor last.
  4. All I can cull is: don't mess with Mother Nature and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Fortune-cookie stuff. Erase All.
  5. Hanks is one of the most likable actors on the planet. But Inferno just lays there onscreen, pancake-flat and with no animating spark to make us give a damn.
  6. A cheerless and unappetizing plate of piffle that deserves to be smashed against a wall or at least sent back to the kitchen.
  7. Stinks worse than dino dung. Sure, the creatures look good.
  8. This Parker spits in our collective eye. Don't blame us for spitting back.
  9. Diesel has chosen to keep selling stupid to audiences who are inexplicably eager to gobble it up. Damn shame.
  10. It plays like like a video game in which the goal is to kill as many of these green-blooded monsters as you can before time's up. It's fun for about 10 minutes, and then the tedium seeps in.
  11. Has no vital signs at all, just crushing dull repetition that makes one noisy, violent scene play exactly like the last one.
  12. How do I hate Armageddon? Let me count the ways.
  13. "Your incompetence is most taxing," says the chief vampire (Bill Nighy). A line that pretty much nails this rusty Blade.
  14. Transformers: Dark of the Moon - high on any list of the worst blockbusters ever - is a movie bereft of wit, wonder, imagination, and any genuine reason for being. Watching it makes you die a little inside.
  15. The money shots of the living tableau are padded with jokes that feel embalmed before the actors get them out of their mouths.
  16. The movie deserves a stake through the heart.
  17. Audiences with a brain cell left have only one choice: Look for the first exit on the right.
  18. With that cast, we rightfully expect fireworks. What we get is the film equivalent of a wet blanket.
  19. Larry Crowne is more than a missed opportunity. It's alarmingly, depressingly out of touch.
  20. Awful.
  21. Morning sickness afflicts most of the potential mommies. For me, the movie itself triggered the vomiting.
  22. Way to go, Battleship: Take the crassest of cynical junk, slather it in jingoism and sell it as rah-rah fun for right-wingers.
  23. A collection of moldy gags that director Tim Story tries to polish. Not with these turds, pal.
  24. Cruz is a dish, but her movie is as soggy and indigestible as Styrofoam.

  25. Could 1960s-style sex, drugs and rock & roll really have been this dull?
  26. The spectacle feels lifeless and what could have been a challenging moral provocation dissolves into sappy, feel-good pandering. Lawrence and Pratt deserve better. So do audiences.
  27. Monster Trucks is a wreck, fueled by the crazy belief that noise and repetition can disguise the lack of credible writing, directing, acting and FX.
  28. An appallingly clumsy and stupid take on drugs, kidnapping and suicide in suburbia.
  29. Blomkamp and his wife and co-writer, Terri Tatchell, stack the deck. Instead of awe, we get "E.T." - aww.
  30. Purists, be warned: This scare-flick quickie has as much relation to the 1953 Vincent Price classic with the same title as Paris Hilton does to acting.
