3.5 of 4

“..worse, we get a feeling we’ve seen it all before..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..what appeared fresh and fun back in 2006 now feels like recycled goods in Happy Feet Two..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the uninhibited musical sensibility remains admirable and infectious..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“..the story jumps among so many characters that none of them matters much, and everything that was fresh and vivid in the first film has gone stale..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..the sequel's themes of friendship and interdependency fail to generate much momentum..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
2 of 4

by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the movie is swathed in visual rapture..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
“..the movie has absolutely everything except the light touch required for unaffected charm..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
2 of 4

by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
3.5 of 4

“..has less to do with the now-mandatory upgrade to 3D than with an increased command of texture and light..”
by Sam Adams [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..encourage audiences to overlook how random and haphazard its narrative is..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
“..an amiable sequel with not much on its mind other than funny and creaky jokes, and waves of understated beauty..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“.."Happy Feet Two" is plotted so that a bunch of disparate things happen, until it's time to end the movie..”

LATEST REVIEWS

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]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
