“..your heart will also go out to the cast, stuck even more pitiably in syrupy manufactured crises..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
“..this energetic family movie is less insipid than it looks..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]
“..the strong emotions at play are good, but the movie veers, at times, into schmaltz, and some comedy shorthand feels lazy and dumb..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..the people's stories, especially a trumped-up romantic triangle, are not as intriguing as the portrayal of pre-Internet news media..”
by Nell Minow [Chicago Sun-Times]
3 of 4

“..tells its sort-of-true version of events in a democratic and humane fashion..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
2.5 of 4

“..like an old Disney family comedy by way of a 1980s news story..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
3 of 5

by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3.5 of 5

“..it also has a more-than-fair amount of wry humor, droll political observation if not actual satire..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
Review rate : D+

“..in short, Miracle eschews black and white - even the Inupiat have ulterior motives - for shades of grey..”
by Peter Keough [Boston Phoenix]
“..gets off to a shaky start, but once revved up, it becomes an involving work-against-the-clock-and-the-odds action movie..”
by Rachel Saltz [New York Times]
“..full of such simple acts of intelligence. And that's a minor miracle..”
by Janice Page [Boston Globe]
“..doesn't have much of a plot..”
by Ella Taylor [NPR]

LATEST REVIEWS

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]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
