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 Los Angeles Times says, "The worst thing about Life Itself is not that it is emotionally sadistic. It's just how much it wants to be emotionally sadistic, while missing the mark by a mile."
The New York Post says, "Racially offensive quips, flagrant sexism and Tourette syndrome gags all contribute to this witless, scare-free junk."
Unbroken: Path to Redemption
The Hollywood Reporter says, "There's a reason that Angelina Jolie's screen adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling Unbroken left out most of the material covered in the book's second half. It just isn't very interesting."
The Houston Chronicle calls it "An efficiently made but predictable and very violent Taken/Death Wish revenge-apalooza that does little new with the formula."
Variety says, "There is rarely any sense that anyone involved with The Nun takes anything here too seriously, and audiences are advised to respond in kind."
