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

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
