GI JOE RETALIATION
The Week In Ouch | AP

This week in music, Dido made her return with "Girl Who Got Away." The album was an attempt at a fresh sound, but critics felt the project's "cool factor" seemed a little forced. Her duet "Let Us Move On" with hip-hop fave Kendrick Lamar was taken as a glaring example of this fact. The Strokes' "Comedown Machine" presented a band that seems to have lost its chemistry and Lil' Wayne's "I Am Not Human II" received negative marks for being a little stagnant. The rapper didn't bring as much energy as with his last album. Rounding out this week's new music was One Republic's "Native, which lost points for its lead singer's bland delivery.

In movies, "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" was an overwhelming mix of explosions and shootouts that lacked a solid storyline, leaving most critics extremely confused. "Welcome to the Punch" wasted a strong cast on an unrealistic film that failed to allow viewers to connect with it's characters. It was praised for being well shot, but that is about it. Tyler Perry's "Temptation" was, well, just terrible and"The Host" was a boring take on a story we've heard before -- aliens take over earth and humans must find someway to survive.

As always, we have gathered all of the week's toughest reviews in the slideshow below. Do you agree with the critics? Let us know in the comments section.
