“..when you consider the uphill battle this movie faced, and the lingering legacy it had to overcome, this Arthur is a winner..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
2 of 4

“..was mildly entertaining, even oddly quaint, three decades ago, now the guy just seems out of touch..”

“..this "Arthur" is missing a soul..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

by David Hiltbrand [Philadelphia Inquirer]

by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH :

“..a film that, despite its watery climax, paddles in the shallows, content to give us more easy Woman thrills, without really examining the horror of what makes us human..”
by Leigh Singer [IGN Movies]

LEVIATHAN :

“..powerful, craftily allusive and elusive film, the director's best and most courageous so far..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR :

“..director J.C. Chandor has delivered a tough, gritty, richly atmospheric thriller that lacks some of the formal razzle-dazzle of his solo seafaring epic..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
