'A Good Day To Die Hard' Reviews, Nataly Dawn's 'How I Knew Her,' 'Beautiful Creatures' Reviews and More: The Week In Ouch


This week marked the release of "A Good Day to Die Hard," the latest installment in the "Die Hard" franchise. The Bruce Willis-led film was a failed attempt to recapture the magic of previous films, and fell extremely short, according to most critics. Animated film "Escape from Planet Earth" was scolded for its bland storyline, and the supernatural misstep "Beautiful Creatures" totally wasted the acting abilities of both Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson.

In music, Veronica Falls' "Waiting for Something to Happen" relied on a familiar sound that left most critics underwhelmed. Nataly Dawn received negative marks for her lifeless delivery on "How I Knew Her" and Ulrich Schnauss was called out for not challenging himself creatively with "A Long Way to Fall." But the worst reviews this week were saved for Temper Temper's "Bullet for My Valentine," a timid album that lacked material engaging enough to draw in new listeners.

As always we've gathered the week's harshest reviews in the slideshow below. Take a look and let us know if you agree in the comments section.
