LATEST REVIEWS

ALOHA :

“..the chemistry is mostly forced, the story without an emotional core. And though Crowe's facility for language can be striking, here it never moves beyond self-consciousness..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]

TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS :

“..Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as entertaining and engaging a film as any that Bollywood has delivered this year..”
by Harish Jaiswal [Cine Magazine Digital]

BARELY LETHAL :

“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

SURVIVOR :

“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]

SAN ANDREAS :

“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

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