3 of 5

“..ultimately, this is a horror film that does the job, insidiously..”
by Tim Evans [Sky Movies]
1 of 5

“..this story won't be over any time soon - "Insidious: Chapter 2" is the kind of lazy, halfhearted product that gives scary movies a bad name..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times]
1 of 5

“..this is one of the more pointless follow-ups ever, just an assortment of scary-movie tropes randomly doled out, with unavoidable jolts at regular intervals..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
2.5 of 4

“..the sequel's not bad; it's not slovenly..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
