Hitchcock

It’s less suspense and more family plot in this muddled biopic of the master of suspense.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Alfred Hitchcock was more than the master of suspense. The director of such landmark motion pictures as Rear Window and Vertigo was instrumental in devising the language of modern film. As such, it seems a cruel irony that a movie about him would be made by decidedly lesser filmmakers.

Monsters University

The college-set Disney/Pixar prequel graduates without honors.


Children's

Phil Bacharach
If Monsters University is any indication of what children think college is like, maybe it’s no wonder that increasing numbers of young people are forgoing higher education. The follow-up to Disney/Pixar 2001’s Monsters, Inc. imagines university life as a suffocating place ruled by mean-spirited cliques and droning professors.

RED 2

Better dead than ‘RED.’


Action

Zach Hale
Nobody in their right mind would mistake 2010's RED for high art. The film was a harmless, mildly entertaining caricature of a summer blockbuster that provided a fair amount of laughs and a hefty amount of explosions. Any notion of plot played second fiddle to graphic absurdity, but it at least bumbled about with a little bit of charm and charisma.

Disorderlies

Filmed in 3-D, only the ‘D’ stands for ‘diabetes.’


Comedy

Louis Fowler
As someone who is doing his damnedest to lose more than three decades of weight gain, it has taken years of self-inflicted embarrassment to fully realize that “all you can eat” isn't a challenge, but a curse.
