Roger Ebert gave The Sitter 1/4. I don't know what you're going to give it, JB, but I have a hypothetical situation for you:

If you've already compiled your Bottom 10 list, what would happen if you saw a zero star movie after? Would you go back and add it, or just leave it. Not sure if your personal policy on leaving ratings unchanged applies to ReelThoughts or not. Maybe if it's that bad, you'd write a ReelThought on how bad movies can truly come at any time (and tear into the movie again).

Just wondering.

Zookeeper deserves no stars. An awful, awful movie.

Probably fearing a lawsuit from Pink Floyd.

There actually IS a film called Dark Side Of The Moon though:

The main reason I read carefully selected film critics is to avoid bad movies. But sometimes I guess wrong. Here's a prime example from 2011. Hanna (2011) is a pile of clichés. It held my interest just enough so that I made it through, but I kept wondering in scene after scene if I could predict what was going to happen, implausible or not, and I generally could. Now that is a lack of imagination. Hanna is a highly trained teenaged killer who goes from one country and a fight to another country and another fight. In the end, of course, the evil CIA officer tracks her down and they meet face to face. Hanna, who has killed a lot of people since leaving her sheltered existence in the forests of Norway says—you guessed it—but the evil CIA officer leaves her no choice, so Hanna has to –you guessed it.

So then calling it 'Transformers: Dark side of the moon' wouldn't be an issue as it isn't the same as either. Also, there are plenty of movies that share names with other movies, songs that share names with other songs etc.
