'Oz The Great And Powerful' Reviews, Josh Ritter's 'The Beast in Its Tracks,' 'Dead Man Down' And More: The Week In Ouch

Were These Critics Too Harsh?

In music this week, The Men released "New Moon," an overwhelming combination of ideas that left most critics slightly confused. The album was praised for a few stand-out moments, but most reviewers wished the track listing had been edited down a little better. Josh Ritter received some of the best reviews this week with "The Beast In Its Tracks." The album's songs were praised as extremely smooth and moving takes on emerging from heartbreak, but some critics felt the album was a bit one-dimensional. Bastille's debut album "Bad Blood" received negative marks for lacking personality and failing to allow the band to really standout.

"Oz the Great and Powerful" rolled into theaters this week with fairly favorable reviews. Though most critics enjoyed the film, a few felt it lacked the unique, magical touches they expected from the movie. "Dead Man Down" was a bizzare mix of plot twists and unexciting tricks that made for an extremely bland film. And though "The ABCs of Death" attempted something new -- the death anthology pulled together 26 different tales created by 26 directors -- it seems that there were just too many stories to fit into the films short runtime.

As always, we have gathered the week's worst reviews in the slideshow below. Take a look through them and let us know if you agree in the comments below.
