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]

MAPS TO THE STARS :

“..looks sharp but, in the end, comes off more like a prank than a coherent take on 21st century Hollywood, even if there are crumbs of truth and wit scattered throughout it..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

ANIMAL :

“..Animal feels like every other standard creature feature..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 :

“..there are plenty of ways to spend your time and money, but "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" shouldn't be one of them..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

WILD CANARIES :

“..in spite of the constant activity, there's not a whole lot going on, but it's still a fun place to visit..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

ALL THE WILDERNESS :

“..in spite of the tatty "coming of age" familiarity, Johnson's vision seems fresh and vibrant..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

DIGGING UP THE MARROW :

“..a playfully self-reflexive exercise whose endless in-jokes will best be appreciated by only the most ardent genre aficionados..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KOBE BRYANT'S MUSE :

“..certainly timely, if also largely whitewashed - a star-approved, produced and guided tour that sacrifices editorial perspective for up-close-and-personal access..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL :

“..busier but also blander and duller than its predecessor..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

THE DUFF :

“..director Ari Sandel takes many pages from Hughes' playbook, but the results here are far less satisfying..”
by Steven Bryan [Examiner]

MCFARLAND, USA :

“..a feel-good movie that earns all those good feelings..”
by James Rocchi [The Wrap]
