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]
