REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..they're bad, but not just bad. They are elaborate and obliterating and unsettling and extremely funny, so that audiences end up laughing, yelling and gasping at the same time..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..the films offer up black comedy, provoking laughs at wrong guesses and giggles over an absurd chain of events that results in disaster..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 4

“..the cheap thrills wear off way fast, and we're left with atrocious acting, feeble writing and clueless directing..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2 of 5

“..occasionally generates that kind of frisson, but it never goes bone-deep..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..it's the best Final Destination sequel - if you gauge success by overall shock value..”
by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer]
1.5 of 4

“..it's a slack but competently executed film of a script with butterknife-dull dialogue and actors cast because of their "type"..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2.5 of 4

“..it adds a touch of humor and even offers a few knowing winks to previous installments..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..a new wrinkle in how the killings spool out actually makes the film even more predictable..”
by Mike Hale [NY Times]
“.."FD 5" did not raise even a single goose bump - which for a movie that bills itself as horror is not a good thing..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

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]
