This was...not a great week for movies. The big drama? Well acted, badly built.
The big adaptation? A fizzle by all accounts. (Your humble correspondents saw it coming and steered clear.)
The “starring Academy-Award winning actress Halle Berry” pic? Only slightly better.
The harrowing horror debut? Awful.
The foreign arthouse religious allegory? Also awful.
The Charlie Chaplin homage? Over-whimsified.
At least the Stanley Donen homage was okay.
Oh, and Al Gore is back with a planetary update. So there’s that.
