REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

3 of 4

“..this "Gatsby" has all the potential for being a train wreck that could make that anemic 1974 version with Robert Redford seem better than it was..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]
3 of 4

“..the most entertaining "Gatsby" yet..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
1 of 4

“..the actors are buried in the art direction, along with feeling. The film looks as stiff and lifeless as a posh store window..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3.5 of 4

“..surprisingly satisfying (and text-faithful) as a dramatization of F. Scott's Fitzgerald's classic novel..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

“..overwrought, asinine, exaggerated and boring..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
3 of 4

“..F. Scott Fitzgerald's brilliant distillation of the Jazz Age is still here. You just have to work your way through a heavy filter of special effects and in-your-face bells and whistles to find it..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..a hugely elaborate, well-cast adaptation of an American classic that will provoke every possible reaction..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

“..a glitz-filled folly..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH :

“..a film that, despite its watery climax, paddles in the shallows, content to give us more easy Woman thrills, without really examining the horror of what makes us human..”
by Leigh Singer [IGN Movies]

LEVIATHAN :

“..powerful, craftily allusive and elusive film, the director's best and most courageous so far..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

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]
