Review rate : D+

“..unloading a sense of smug superiority while ignoring the issues it purports to address..”
by Sam Adams [AV Club]
“..the last 15 minutes or so of the film feel quite powerful and pack an emotional wallop that's quite rare and unexpected for such a gritty, visually stylish thriller..”
by Avi Offer [NYC Movie Guru]
“..the film is a bit too strident about some of the issues at play..”
by Benjamin Mercer [Village Voice]
2.5 of 5

“..the film feels overstuffed and overcooked, as if the filmmaker were trying to get too much out all in one go..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
2 of 5

“..the film cuts with such precision that there‚Äôs scarcely any room to breathe..”
by Andrew Schenker [Time Out New York]
“..pic also boasts strong performances by well-cast up-and-comers, though its lack of star power, per se, likely will limit theatrical prospects..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
3 of 5

“..much of that exposition is awkward or overdetermined..”
by Rachel Saltz [New York Times]
3 of 4

“..a mere introduction to Sociology 101, but it's brisk enough to rustle the reading list and keep the conversation alive..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

LATEST REVIEWS

PADDINGTON :

“..marmaladen with gloriously silly jokes, pitch-perfect performances and incidental detail, this is a warm, witty and wondrously inventive great big bear-hug of a movie..”
by Chris Hewitt [Empire Online]

WILD :

“.."Wild" incorporates beautiful direction, smart writing and brave acting to tell the story of a woman made feral by grief walking from her own darkness into her own light..”
by James Rocchi [Film.com]

GRUMPY CAT'S WORST CHRISTMAS EVER :

“..is surprisingly funny, with the gleefully acerbic screenplay capturing the beloved Grumpy attitude..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]

TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT :

“..a lovely yuletide bauble of a Christmas special, all decked out in tinsel and surrounded by brand new toys..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

ZERO MOTIVATION :

“..the film often takes the form of a prank-filled campus co-ed comedy, flattening the narrative into a hormone-and-ego-fueled romp amid a volatile war..”
by Nick McCarthy [Slant Magazine]

BEFORE I DISAPPEAR :

“..too overwrought to really convince or resonate, yet assembled with enough flair to work as a solid calling card for its debuting helmer..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

AFTERMATH :

“..is a total mess..”
by Evan Saathoff [Badass Digest]

THE BABADOOK :

“..Jennifer Kent's impressive first film has the handcrafted feel of a pre-digital shocker..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]
