2.5 of 4

“..you get a lot to smile about..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..this might please young kids but torment discerning parents..”
by Jordan Riefe [Boston Phoenix]
“..the film's animation style is second-tier, lacking the attention to background detail of Pixar's efforts..”
by Brent Simon [Screen Daily]
“..passable animated entertainment is stronger on humor than adventure..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : D+

“..offers crisp animation..”
by Laremy Legel [Film.com]
“..low-rent animation, this might please young kids but torment discerning parents..”
by Jordan Riefe [The Phoenix]
2.5 of 4

“..it still provides a few smiles, and a decent amount of rainy-day, kiddie entertainment..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..has lots of high-flying escapades but fairly low aspirations..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
“..feel-good but not cloying, zippy but not frenetic, and refreshingly free of snark, the default setting for a lot of kids' fare these days, the feature takes a pleasingly retro-futuristic stance on matters of decor and attitude..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
“..a lightweight, warp-speed, brightly colored trifle that should delight small children and sporadically amuse their parents..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
2 of 4

“.."Earth" is something of a giant - OK, mini-giant - leap forward for The Weinstein Company. It's not much funnier than most of their earlier fare. But at least it's not as ugly as "Hoodwinked," "Doogal" and the rest..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

LATEST REVIEWS

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR :

“..director J.C. Chandor has delivered a tough, gritty, richly atmospheric thriller that lacks some of the formal razzle-dazzle of his solo seafaring epic..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
