LATEST REVIEWS

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]

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]
