2 of 5

“..you may find yourself cutting this disappointingly shallow film some extra slack..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
4 of 5

“..there are many bits and pieces in the drama that will be instantly recognizable and universally identifiable as signs of aging..”
by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat [Spirituality and Practice]
1.5 of 4

“..the result is a comedy-drama that's depressingly superficial, corny and entirely predictable. In short, Late Bloomersis blooming awful..”
by Don Groves [sbs.com.au]
“..that movies crafted to pander to older viewers..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..suffers from a stridently jaunty jazz score, and some gags that don't rise above sitcom level..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
3.5 of 5

“..successfully blended the funny with the sad to create something of a rarity: a rom-com that actually has something to say..”
by Matthew Pejkovic [Matt's Movie Reviews]
1 of 5

“..over the course of a drawn-out 90 minutes, this long-married couple fights, separates and reconciles, though their prickliness is decidedly diluted..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
3 of 4

“..moves at a poky pace even by American indie standards..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
2.5 of 5

“..at least there isn't a laugh track..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..all chirped about by a Greek chorus of familiar BBC faces..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
Review rate : B-

“..a little too easy, but its cast makes it worth a look, even so..”
by Alison Willmore [AV Club]

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]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]
