REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..you might go away from this one blighted, blasted and messed up. Who could ask for anything more?..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
Review rate : B+

“..there's plenty of violence in this film..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
“..the love story that could be at the movie's center gets the most perfunctory treatment..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
4 of 5

“..the film does stumble in its final showdown, failing to find closure beyond its most basic motives..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
Review rate : B-

“..the film achieves that QT hypnotic mood. But only for a while. In the gaudy-bloody last 30 minutes (think over-the-top and beyond), the mood vanishes..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..Tarantino injects the weighty material with so many jocular, startling and unexpected touches that it's constantly stimulating..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..seriously entertaining and seriously thoughtful..”
by Scott Foundas [Village Voice]
3 of 4

“..plenty of big movie moments and several instances of loopy brilliance, but it's also a rehash of "Inglourious Basterds" with slavery substituting for Nazism..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..nor are there as many good oddball characters..”
by J. R. Jones [Chicago Reader]
3.5 of 4

“..it twists and turns over an unbridled two hours and 45 minutes, giving history (and your stamina) a serious pounding..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 4

“..he connective tissue is less convincing, and at two hours and 45 minutes, the film feels ponderous, and the sporadic bratty humour is not enough to leaven the mix..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
“..gorgeously lit and lensed by Robert Richardson against authentic American landscapes..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE DROP :

“..it isn't as powerful as the previous Lehane-inspired movies, but it has slow-building traction and three terrifically controlled performances..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]

SOMETHING WICKED :

“..instead of remaking Bradbury's tale, a semi horror film was derived from Shakespeare's quote - and has little to do with anything except the word Wicked.....”
by James M. Tate [Cultfilmfreak Cinema]

AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR :

“.."At the Devil's Door" doesn't piece together as the eerie, semi-apocalyptic tale it's meant to become..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

BIRD PEOPLE :

“..the new storyline offers some clever moments. But the whimsy isn't enough to warrant staying the night..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

HONEYMOON :

“..a steady dose of newlywed nightmare..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER :

“..you can't help but feel all the palpable joy is eliding some darker realities that would lend the copious musical performances a deeper resonance..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

FINDING FANNY :

“..an original story that is dark, whimsical, witty and irreverent..”
by Priya Joshi [Digital Spy]

MINE GAMES :

“..Mine Games never fully embellishes the idea. Once it finally begins to throw the plot into high gear, it's too little too late. It feels like it's simply retreading old material in a new environment..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

THE GUEST :

“..it's an effectively bloody, breakneck ride, given an extra coat of alluring gloss by the John Carpenter-influenced 1980s styling that is currently all the rage in the genre..”
by Guy Lodge [Time Out London]

20,000 DAYS ON EARTH :

“..a highly polished, carefully constructed docu-fiction hybrid..”
by John Semley [Slant Magazine]
