“..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..”

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]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
