“..the biggest problem with "Dark Skies" is that Stewart can never quite decide just what story he is telling - a slow-burn horror parable or paranoid invasion flick..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]
Review rate : C+

“..once a horror film has to explain the inexplicable, it loses its mystique-and Dark Skies didn't bank that much mystique to begin with..”
by Scott Tobias [A.V. Club]
2.5 of 4

“..mostly, though, it all ends up feeling like a lost, minor episode of "The X-Files:" A little scary, a little silly and catnip for those who want to believe..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
2 of 5

“..it's also true that the most forgettable thriller can be elevated by a committed cast, which is definitely the case here..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..in a genre that so rarely delivers what it promises, this horror flick never lets up on the jolts..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
1.5 of 4

“..Dark Skies is the definitive horror film for the Tea Party era. That's scarier than the aliens themselves..”
by Calum Marsh [Slant Magazine]

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]
