“..too bad the writing lurches, the acting falters and the directing fumbles for tone. Too bad the movie never generates any real steam; it may be set during the dog days, but no one ever sweats, either literally or figuratively..”
by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..there is no character insight allowed by the bumper-car storytelling..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]
1 of 5

“..the movie's libido feels teleported in from other eras - maybe the 1980s, when a flirty spot wasn't a gym or an ATM..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
1 of 5

“..maybe with a different cast, a different story, a different combination of couplings, the movie could have been better..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..it is absolutely terrible..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..it fails to channel those waves shimmering off the pavement into sexual energy - a shame, given that that's the central topic..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

“..a stale noodle kugel..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
