  1. What's good? A mesmeric, bottle-blond Christopher Walken as Max Zorin, hellbent on global domination as a product of Nazi experiments, Grace Jones' zowie star at his henchman, and Duran Duran's title song. Otherwise, I'm out.
  2. This kind of pandering FX padding, unnurtured by humor or heart, is what shifts Jupiter Ascending from a shambles to a fiasco. In an effort to win back audiences by lowering their standards and their daring, the Wachowskis wind up where you never expected to find them creatively: on the ropes.
  3. It could have been crazy-good trash.
  4. The shopworn script by Pablo F. Fenjves, who ghost-wrote the unpublished O.J. Simpson book, If I Did It: The Confessions of the Killer, gets no help from director Asger Leth (Ghosts of Cite Soleil).
  5. Hal claims that a Lantern's only enemy is fear itself. The thought of a sequel to this shamelessly soulless Hollywood product scares me plenty.
  6. A romantic thriller of more than usual ineptitude.
  7. The film is a sham, with good actors going for the paycheck and using beards and heavy makeup to hide their shame.
  8. Bloated, boring, repetitive, draining.
  9. It's not just hard to believe any of this, it's impossible. And director Jon Turteltaub (Phenomenom) directs with robotic cheerlessness.
  10. There's nothing to distract you from a plot so tired there are tire tracks from other racing movies all over it.
  11. This is crap as we know it, a 113 minute package of romcom suck.

    Though Virtuosity connects all the dots to give audiences a roller-coaster ride, the movie begets nothing new: It's stillborn.
  12. The Gunman degenerates into dreary setups for guns and gore. Penn merits more. So do we.
  13. Murphy looks comatose delivering the played-out poopy jokes.
  14. Alexander breaks the key rule that makes movies move: Show, don't tell.
  15. So what's not to like? There's the bad CGI, the choppy pacing, the comically intense acting, the repetition, the dullness and mostly the idiot plot about how there's only one male dragon and everything will be fine if they kill the Big Dick. Wha? Somebody get a hose and put this Fire out.
  16. Is it the worst of the seven screen Sparks so far? Nope. My vote still goes to 2009's "The Last Song" with Miley Cyrus mothering those unhatched turtle eggs. But it's still pretty damn insufferable.
  17. A movie utterly devoid of wit , excitement and any reason for being.
  18. If you can buy the pillow-lipped Angelina Jolie as a psychic FBI agent in Montreal to hunt a serial killer, then you can swallow the other implausibilities in this retread thriller.
  19. Bad Boys II has everything. Everything loud, dumb, violent, sexist, racist, misogynistic and homophobic that producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Michael Bay can think of puking up onscreen.
  20. This movie really moves. But a fleet of tanks couldn’t help the brothers Dowdle push past the plot holes in this rancid mess.
  21. It's hard to deny that The Rite is guilty of sins against its audience.
  22. They are all victims of a script of such colossal banality and gross stupidity that smiles freeze on their faces, leaving them looking trapped and desperate, much like the audience.
  23. Despite Joan Cusack, whose comic spark earns the film its only star, Raising Helen is like tumbling into chick-flick hell.
  24. If you laughed at Tim Story's first "Think," based on Steve Harvey's bestselling advice book for women, you'll probably ride along for this jacked-up, Vegas-set sequel in which dudes and dolls offer sexist approaches to throwing a bachelor party.
  25. Preacher Reitman won't be satisfied till we stomp our smartphones. LOL. WTF.
  26. The last of the summer's movie epics is a digitalized eyesore hobbled in every department by staggering incompetence.
  27. Forget fever – this floral-scented fiasco is so lifeless you can barely feel a pulse.
  28. Where's Sandler in all this? Lost in gimmicks that smack of desperation. Damn it.

  29. Even a search party would be hard-pressed to find a spark between Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas in Pollack's latest tear-jerker.
