LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
