LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

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]
