It sucks to waste your money and your time on bad movies. Of course, your individual enjoyment is subjective, but here are five films in theaters this week that were panned by critics — either our own or reviewers from elsewhere on the internet.
The LA Times says, "To criticize Death Wish for its indelicate timing would be to suggest that there might ever be an appropriate moment to see it."
Roger Moore at Movie Nation says of The Lullaby, "A promising premise ineptly botched in execution."
Variety calls this faith-based movie, "A sluggish biblical epic that might have been more bearable if it had a much higher campiness quotient."
Fifty Shades Freed
Hollywood Reporter asks, "Seriously, is this the best we can offer adults who don't want to watch Marvel movies?"
Variety says, "A sex-free, PG-13 version of "Freed" could be cut without shedding a second of narrative coherence, such as it is; one could ask what the point of that would be, though similar queries might be leveled at the film as it stands."
Hollywood Reporter says, "Winchester draws on a fascinating true story but then simplifies and sensationalizes it to fit creaky, clunky horror conventions."
