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

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
