“..you won't come away from it with any new answers, but it's a useful reminder of why the drama of that day has transfixed Americans for half a century..”
by David Wiegand [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..too often feeling like a book report version of history..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
2 of 5

“..there's nothing terribly wrong with "Killing Kennedy." We just don't need the splashes of Hollywood in a story we already know way too well..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]
Review rate : C-

“..there's no real attempt at authenticity or immediacy, but the clarity of simple A to B to C storytelling offers some satisfaction..”
by Zack Handlen [A.V. Club]
Review rate : C+

“..the even larger issue is familiarity. We already know too much and paradoxically too little about the JFK assassination. A TV movie needed to tell us something we don't know. No dice here..”
by Verne Gay [Newsday]

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 :

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]
