LATEST REVIEWS

PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 :

“..the rest was a blur of weak slapstick, one over-dyed moustache and vague sexism, ageism and sizeism..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

CHILD 44 :

“..unrelentingly grim, plodding, and close-to-incoherent adaptation of Tom Rob Smith's best-selling mystery..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

UNFRIENDED :

“..a flashy new coat of paint for the "found footage" genre of horror movie, replacing wobbly handheld cameras with webcams and Skype. Unfortunately, the engine underneath that gloss is woefully familiar, offering the same jump scares we've seen..”
by Jacob Hall [NY Daily News]

MONKEY KINGDOM :

“..these gorgeous-looking films are so much more than chronicles of nature. They have a heart and an insight that's remarkable..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ALEX OF VENICE :

“..although it's enjoyable, actor Chris Messina's directorial debut is somehow less than the sum of its parts, wading only through the shallow end of familiar human conflicts resolved too conveniently to satisfy..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]

TRUE STORY :

“..lightweight script doesn't help a grandiose premise..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT :

“..plays like a dorm-room answer to modern war films, complete with the constant profanity and masculine hysterics that pass for impact in an immature script..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]

THE ROAD WITHIN :

“..three superb young actors try but fail to bolster a thin script..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

BEYOND THE REACH :

“..it isn't nearly as much creepy fun as it sounds like..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

THE SQUEEZE :

“..between plot and character, there are definitely 18 holes in "The Squeeze"..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
