AFFLUENZA :

“..nothing is revealing or surprising in this horse-beating tale of spiritual poverty among the extremely wealthy..”
by Chris Klimek [The Dissolve]

RAGE :

“..but this one is funless and lackluster, a grinding mess of pulp cliches with dull characters, perfunctory violence and dim plotting..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

ROAD TO PALOMA :

“..this film is numbingly dull, an outlaw-on-the-run saga as laconic and slow-moving as its fierce, hirsute protagonist..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]

LAND HO! :

“..the characters reorder their lives that makes Land Ho! seem both a little slight and a little precious..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [AV Club]

BOYHOOD :

“..Boyhood is a masterpiece..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]

PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE :

by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

SCHOOL DANCE :

“..this witless comedy is equal opportunity offensive..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

“..an underwhelming survival thriller..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
