One Popcorn: Flop
Two Popcorns: Wait till it’s on video
Three Popcorns: Go see it
Four Popcorns: Standing ovation
Cast: Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Clifton Collins Jr., Wendell Pierce, Michael Chiklis, Nick Nolte
Director: Taylor Hackford
Comment: Very entertaining. Statham is a great action, good but tough guy. Lopez shows her very solid acting skills.
"Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D
Cast: Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen
Director: Tommy Wirkola
Comment: Not the Hansel and Gretel we remember for sure. A gratuitously gory spin off into the wilderness of computer animation monsters and a sophomoric script.
Genre: Gross Comedy
Cast: Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Jeremy Allen White
Directors: Steven Brill, Rusty Cundieff, Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, Brett Ratner
Comment: What was this super star cast thinking when they signed on!? Sure to win the Oscar for most theater walkouts! Jackman is in self branding destruct mode appearing with male genitilia hanging from his neck in a lengthy scene with Kate Winslet! Soft porn garbage.
