Thanksgiving has come and gone, but the nation's critics didn't let their holiday meals prevent a fresh round of reviews on the latest entertainment offerings.
In music, Rihanna's "Unapologetic" provided a slightly bland listening experience according to some, while Phillip Phillips' "World From the Side of the Moon" found him pushing a overwhelmingly serious sound many critics found slightly annoying. Kid Rock also made a return this week with "Rebel Soul," though the album was deemed way too safe to spark any interest.
A large amount of fabrications and embellishments in Alfred Hitchcock's story left at least one reviewer disinterested in "Hitchcock" and its ludicrous narrative. "Rust and Bone" maxed out on the misery, and "Rise of the Guardians," even through all of its sharp visuals, couldn't seem to overcome a jumbled storyline that lacked focus. But out of all of this week's movies, "Red Dawn" received the toughest reviews leaving many critics to question why the film was ever created.
As always, we have placed all of the week's harshest reviews in the slideshow below. Do you think the critics were accurate? Let us know in the comments section.
