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

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

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]
