1.5 of 4

“..so sappy, cutesy and cloying that it makes "E.T." look like "Citizen Kane"..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2.5 of 4

“..it's plainly derivative, but Dave Green's debut feature is heartfelt and fun..”
by Sandie Angulo Chen [Washington Post]
3 of 4

“..Earth to Echo is unlikely to become the heartwarming classic that 1982's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is, but the family-friendly sci-fi adventure has its own charms..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
3 of 4

“..Earth to Echo is derivative, but it's refreshingly updated..”
by David Hiltbrand [Philadelphia Inquirer]

“..a nice message, in any decade..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]

“.."Earth to Echo" is a copy of a copy. The movie feels less like a weak "E.T." than a substandard "Mac and Me"..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

LATEST REVIEWS

MAY IN THE SUMMER :

“..the broader truths in Dabis's screenplay, as does its smart treatment of the region's proximity to armed conflict..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

WATERCOLOR POSTCARDS :

“..we've got a quality film more than competently made, and if you like romantic dramas with a taste of redemption, and closure, then Watercolor Postcards is a strong example of the genre..”
by Mark Bell [Film Threat]

JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE :

“..the send-up is sometimes funny but mostly boring (like the show itself)..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING :

“..but even then, the film offers some new shudders - King's demonic guest has an affinity for ants, and Jung uses them to unsettling effect..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

IF I STAY :

“.."If I Stay" is a movie of blunt contrasts - not just life vs. death, but also extraversion vs. introversion, classical vs. rock..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE BOXCAR CHILDREN :

“..this movie is full of teachable moments and a great addition to our movie library..”
by Kathryn Cummins [Cummins Life]

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]
