SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”

by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
