LATEST REVIEWS

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]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]
