CRONIES :

“..Cronies is funny and moving in equal doses, a humane film about a handful of guys just trying to get by on the hands they've been dealt by life..”
by Dominick Mayer [Consequence of Sound]

WITH THIS RING :

“..the dialogue and complex weave of relationships feel believable and natural. So even if the outcomes don't feel like revelations, they feel right, and the trip to get there feels the same..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

PROJECT ALMANAC :

“..modestly entertaining..”
by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian]

JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS :

“..the Justice League members have some great moments to enjoy, although they all take a backseat to the main Aquaman plot..”
by Joshua Yehl [IGN Movies]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
