2 of 4

“..this is a love story as old as, well, "Love Story," the gushy novel-turned-blockbuster from 1970..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2.5 of 5

“..there's a pleasing straightforwardness to The Fault In Our Stars..”
by Jake Wilson [Sydney Morning Herald]
“..the script makes an excellent fit for Woodley, ...two similarly smart, self-aware films..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
4 of 5

“..the film has enough charm and humor to keep it appealing..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]
“..soulfully acted, especially by a never-better Shailene Woodley, and several degrees smarter than most films aimed at teenagers..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
3 of 4

“..it's a good, smart, careful movie, anchored by a lovely performance by Shailene Woodley, but it doesn't quite take you where the book does..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
“..it never gets cloying, which is a testimony to the grounding influence of Woodley. Against all odds, it even manages to end on an upbeat note..”
by Diane Garrett [The Wrap]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
