    Gary Oldman Says He Was "Perplexed" By Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives'

    There were few films last year as divisive as Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives."

    First there was the best....and now the comes the worst. And while Mary Pols stoked internet fury last year by naming "Cloud Atlas" the top stinker of 2012, hardly anyone will argue with her choice this year: "Grown Ups 2." And in fact the rest of her list is pretty debate proof.
