Just three wide releases this weekend: A deep-south drama about an angry man and his unhappy captive, a nose-pickin' comedy about morons on motorcycles, and a lengthy crime flick about a true-life serial killer.

Black Snake Moan -- 63 positive / 38 negative at RottenTomatoes.com

Pro: "In fact, I pretty much enjoyed the whole movie, with some incredulity and a few half-snorts." -- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

Con: "It's an exploitation film fraught with faux-sincerity, and ultimately it's utterly ridiculous." -- Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times

Pro: "If you stick with it, you'll see that its excesses are earned and that this is a heartfelt, thoughtful piece." -- Kevin Laforest, Montreal Film Journal

Con
: "Its consciously far-fetched, out-there notions of the things damaged people do in the name of love are reductive and go only so far." -- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

Bonus! "The film succeeds because underneath all the symbolism and the outrageous window dressing, we can glimpse real people in the characters." -- Jette Kernion, Cinematical

Wild Hogs -- 12 positive / 68 negative at RT.com

Pro
: "These "Mild" Hogs get by on being good-natured, and willing to trade a little star power for the chance to ride and get paid for it." -- Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel

Con
: "The movie never rises to the level of the professional, much less the comic." -- Stephen Hunter, Washington Post

Pro
: "Plays as a pleasingly broad diversion, provided one's level of anticipation is properly adjusted downward." -- Brent Simon, FilmStew.com

Con: "It does absolutely nothing, save for what you know it will do, and it does this with only an absolute bare minimum of exertion, with absolutely no exceptions." -- Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star

Bonus!
"You can't help but wonder whether folks like Macy, Liotta and Travolta lost a bet." -- Erik Davis, Cinematical

Zodiac -- 101 positive / 15 negative at RT.com

Pro
: "The real star of the show is Fincher, conning Hollywood into funding another unique, perverse and extremely dark vision." -- Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly

Con
: "Futility is a problem, especially when we're asked to sit through almost three hours of it." -- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle

Pro: "Zodiac runs for two hours and forty minutes; I sat rapt for every second of it." -- Devin Faraci, CHUD.com

Con: "A meandering, bland film that clocks in at nearly three hours and feels like at least eight." -- Lexi Feinberg, CinemaBlend.com

Bonus! "Whether you're a true-crime buff or just an average cinephile who enjoys a well-crafted film, you'll find something to like about Zodiac." -- Kim Voynar, Cinematical

Next week: 300!!!
