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]

“..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

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]
