This was...not a great week for movies. The big drama? Well acted, badly built.

Detroit *

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.

Day-um, Lick!!! You're one hard critic to please! Maybe you should switch to reviewing restaurants?
