Roman Reloaded Reviews
From Nicki's Minaj's new album to "Mirror Mirror," the week's most brutal reviews are in.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, which one of this week's reviews is the snarkiest of them all? That award might belong to "Mirror Mirror," the romantic comedy based off the "Snow White" fairytale, starring Julia Roberts, Lily Collins and Sean Bean.

While it may seem like this all-star cast can do no wrong, according to Rolling Stone, the film falls flat. "The script by Marc Klein and Jason Keller is a model of storytelling incoherence and a lot of good actors go down in its swirling drain," wrote critic Peter Travers.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj's new album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," isn't faring much better in the critics' eyes. According to Billboard, the album is just as schizophrenic as Minaj and her two alter egos -- and that's not a compliment.

HuffPost Entertainment has rounded up the week's snarkiest reviews just for your enjoyment in this week's installment of our "Week In Ouch" series.

This week, critics from TV Guide to The New York Times and HitFix were left shaking their heads and sharpening their critiques.

Let us know which films, albums and TV shows you think deserved the harsh critiques, and which ones you think critics should ease up on in the comments.

Nicki Minaj may have hit a commercial home run with her new single "Starships," but that doesn't mean the critics are as obsessed as her fans. In fact, Billboard.com thinks that Minaj's new pop sound may alienate "a good chunk of her core to focus on singing instead of imaginative rhymes."

In short, Minaj spends more time exploring her musical identity on "Roman Reloaded" than she does perfecting one, which makes the album sound bloated and rushed.
