“..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

THE LOFT :

“.."The Loft" is a stylish whodunit that struggles to stitch the label "Hitchcockian" right on the inner pocket..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

BLACK OR WHITE :

“..Black or White is an uncommonly brave film but it loses its gumption at the end..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

AMIRA & SAM :

“..nothing feels truly at stake, no matter how weighty the risks the characters face, but there are charming moments along the way..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

SUBURBAN GOTHIC :

“..it's unsatisfying overall, trying too hard to look like it doesn't care..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

GIRLHOOD :

“..director Celine Sciamma explores a very different coming-of-age than in her 2011 film... with this vibrant portrait of a teenage girl..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WILD CARD :

“.."Wild Card" doesn't really hit the rock bottom that would make it more than a series of sulks and wallops..”
by Nicolas Rapold [NY Times]

SUPREMACY :

“..despite a vein-popping lead performance (and Ms. Olivieri‚Äôs touching take on the classic broken-down moll), "Supremacy" remains stubbornly uninvolving..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]

BACKSTREET BOYS: SHOW 'EM WHAT YOU'RE MADE OF :

“..a behind-the-scenes portrait that should please the band's diehard fans, but offers little of substance to the uninitiated..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

THE DEVIL'S VIOLINIST :

“..while its themes border on the sensationalistic, the film lacks the sizzle, humor and wild imagination that Ken Russell brought to his similar classical music-themed cinematic excursions..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
