Despite a strong cast, gorgeous cinematography, and a suffocating sense of sexual tension, this movie takes far too long to get off the ground.
Charlie Kaufman at his best and worst, but at the very least a discussion-worthy animated feature.
"A Walk in the Woods" is pleasant but inconsequential, a passing diversion rather than a worthy cinematic destination.
The movie is replete with bloody encounters, sly asides, and one-liners, but the tone is awkward and uneven.
This is an appetizer and like most meager fare, it doesn't satisfy.
It's hard to find a level on which "Aloha" works. It's a murky, muddled mess.

"Age of Ultron" disappoints not because it's irredeemably bad but because it fails to achieve the level of its predecessor in nearly every facet.
The movie takes a detour into Nicholas Sparks territory and never fully recovers.
