Justin Timberlake ended seven years of musical silence this week with the release of "The 20/20 Experience." The album debuted to extremely strong reviews and Billboard reports it is is projected to sell over 800,000 copies in its first week. Still some critics felt that when listened to individually, the album's tracks failed to standout like those found on his last album. Woodkid's "The Golden Age" contained a few capturing moments, but the the listening experience wasn't consistent. And Karl Bartos failed to impress with "Off The Record," an album that seemed to only pay homage to his electro pop hits of the past.
With a ridiculous amount of pointless violence and a second half that was visually jarring for some viewers, "Olympus Has Fallen" received some of the worst reviews this week. Tina Fey struggled to step out of her acting comfort zone in "Admission" and Liam Hemsworth's "Love & Honor" was a misguided, overly mushy film that presented an unrealistic view of the Vietnam era in which it was set.
We have gathered the week's worst reviews in the slideshow below. Do you agree with the critics? Let us know in the comments section.
The 20/20 Experience - Justin Timberlake
The album stands strong as a whole but the individual tracks are a bit underwhelming, says Pop Matters. <a href="http://www.popmatters.com/pm/review/169442-justin-timberlake-the-2020-experience/" target="_blank"><blockquote>"Even the most hardened of cynics have to marvel at 20/20‘s sheer musical audacity, but at the end of the day, the individual songs fail to hold up to close scrutiny."</blockquote></a>
The Golden Age - Woodkid
The album fell just a little short according to musicOMH.com. <a href="http://www.musicomh.com/reviews/albums/woodkid-the-golden-age" target="_blank"><blockquote>"Taken strictly as an aural experience, it’s a brave and sometimes moving work that nonetheless falls well short of success." </blockquote></a>
"Off the Record" - Karl Bartos
The album offered nothing new, says The Independent. <blockquote><a href="http://drownedinsound.com/releases/17536/reviews/4146183" target="_blank">"Off the Record contains few surprises, with several tracks pleasantly echoing his time as co-composer of some of the group's most glorious pieces." </a></blockquote>
"Olympus Has Fallen"
The film was just a tad ludicrous, says Sean Means. <blockquote><a href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/entertainment2/56024040-223/banning-fallen-olympus-action.html.csp" target="_blank">"If Glenn Beck directed a live-action remake of Team America: World Police, you might approach the level of ridiculous violence and brainless flag-waving in Olympus Has Fallen." </a></blockquote>
Tina Fey proved to be a little over head with this role, says J.R. Jones. <blockquote><a href="http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/admission/Film?oid=9017122" target="_blank">"This is certainly an interesting idea, though the movie is badly handicapped by Fey, who must venture beyond her usual snippiness into scenes of genuine poignancy and proves unequal to the task." </a></blockquote>
"Love & Honor"
The movie was as unrealistic as they come, says Nick Schager. <blockquote><a href="http://www.villagevoice.com/2013-03-20/film/love-and-honor-annihilates-probability-one-60s-clich-at-a-time/" target="_blank">"The CW version of the Vietnam War and the 1969 counterculture, Love and Honor hews to a mushy formula far older than its subject matter."</a></blockquote>
