1 of 4

“..the visuals are sharp and the 3-D above average..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
2 of 5

“..the empty imagery of the Cirque shows often seems exciting in the moment, but lacks deeper meaning..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
“..the characters played by Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd take in a performance of "Mystere" under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
2 of 4

“..the camerawork feels natural and unforced, one of the primary achievements of the enjoyable if not essential Worlds Away..”
by Howard Cohen [Miami Herald]
“..the brow-furrowing is understandable, though, as, like most abstractedly mystical Cirque stage shows, the action follows the logic of a dream..”
by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the best ones here are the simplest, during which the eye can follow each body's flouting of the rules of gravity and bone structure..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
0.5 of 4

“..most mangled of all are the segments from "The Beatles LOVE,"..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2.5 of 4

“..it fails to fully convey the thrill of running off to join the circus, for real..”
by Loren King [Boston Globe]
2.5 of 4

“..despite its appeal, the movie lacks a judicious film editor, one who doesn't cut in the middle of the breathtaking, death-defying aerial moves by the Cirque performers..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..as befits a film designed to attract a more family-oriented audience than that for Cirque's steamier stage work..”
by Rob Nelson [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

PADDINGTON :

“..marmaladen with gloriously silly jokes, pitch-perfect performances and incidental detail, this is a warm, witty and wondrously inventive great big bear-hug of a movie..”
by Chris Hewitt [Empire Online]

WILD :

“.."Wild" incorporates beautiful direction, smart writing and brave acting to tell the story of a woman made feral by grief walking from her own darkness into her own light..”
by James Rocchi [Film.com]

GRUMPY CAT'S WORST CHRISTMAS EVER :

“..is surprisingly funny, with the gleefully acerbic screenplay capturing the beloved Grumpy attitude..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]

TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT :

“..a lovely yuletide bauble of a Christmas special, all decked out in tinsel and surrounded by brand new toys..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

ZERO MOTIVATION :

“..the film often takes the form of a prank-filled campus co-ed comedy, flattening the narrative into a hormone-and-ego-fueled romp amid a volatile war..”
by Nick McCarthy [Slant Magazine]

BEFORE I DISAPPEAR :

“..too overwrought to really convince or resonate, yet assembled with enough flair to work as a solid calling card for its debuting helmer..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

AFTERMATH :

“..is a total mess..”
by Evan Saathoff [Badass Digest]

THE BABADOOK :

“..Jennifer Kent's impressive first film has the handcrafted feel of a pre-digital shocker..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]
