2.5 of 4

“..nothing equals the original film's use of 'Zilla as a symbol of the Atomic Age. But seeing the scaly dude side with Mother Nature against the freaks is almost worth enduring the blather that precedes it..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :
