“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”

by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]
