Phil’s Top 5… Scathing film reviews

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Scathing film reviews!

 

 

 

5 – “I entered the theatre in the bloom of youth and emerged with a family of field mice living in my long, white moustache. (The film) is an entirely inappropriate length for what is essentially a home video of gay men playing with giant Barbie dolls.”
Sex and the City 2, Lindy West, thestranger.com

 

4 –  “An explosion in a stupid factory”
A Good Day To Die Hard, Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro

 

3 – “What can you say about a sequel that Steve Guttenberg won’t even appear in?”
Police Academy 5, Leonard Maltin

 

2 –  “Armageddon got some astronomy right. For example, there is an asteroid in the movie, and asteroids do indeed exist.”
Armageddon, Phil Plait, the “Bad Astronomer”

 

1- “Eleven years and several progressively more dreadful movies after Signs, director M. Night Shyamalan would be lucky to get a gig directing traffic.”
After Earth, Lou Lumenick, New York Post
