One Popcorn: Flop
Two Popcorns: Wait till it’s on video
Three Popcorns: Go see it
Four Popcorns: Standing ovation
"At Any Price"
Cast: Dennis Quaid, Zac Efron, Kim Dickens, Heather Graham, Clancy Brown
Director: Ramin Bahrani
Comment: Quaid went over the top in trying to establish his miserable character. It is an illustration of the negative impact of greed, ego, poor ethics and values. If you go don't expect to walk out with good feelings!
"Fast & Furious 6"
Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez
Director: Justin Lin
Comment: As usual, in multi-squealed movies there is a tendency to focus on even more spectacular action scenes and forget about the script and dialogue. This one sports ridiculous, over the top, almost cartoon like action scenes. Had to laugh at them a few times. Just can't come close to the first one.
"The Hangover Part III"
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, John Goodman
Director: Todd Phillips
Comment: A real "Nothin' Burger". Again, can't come close to the first one.
