REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..watchable but unlikely to get much critical love, "Ledge" looks like a better leap for cable than theatrical..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
1 of 5

“..preposterous - complete with eye-rolling dialogue, secular vs. biblical miscommunication, sexually-frustrated fanaticism, and finally, a reversion to Bible-quoting violence (Ezekiel 25:17? Come on pal, we've all seen Pulp Fiction)..”
by Sam Kressner [Filmcritic.com]
“..it's worth noting here..”
by Aaron Hillis [Village Voice]
“..is the cinematic equivalent of what used to be called a problem play, in which the characters' crises neatly mesh: in this case, neatly and preposterously..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
“..fails to achieve anything like the same level of authenticity..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..eventually fails, not because of its philosophical ideas, but because it introduces so many of them at the same time that even a viewer with a score pad can't keep up..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

DRAKE'S HOMECOMING: THE LOST FOOTAGE :

“..there's little here for casual Drake listeners, but the film will definitely appeal to diehard fans..”
by Daniel Otis [Toronto Star]

IT FOLLOWS :

“..It Follows is yet another example of how smart the indie horror game is these days..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

BACKCOUNTRY :

“..solid performances from the small cast and robust visuals..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE WALKING DECEASED :

“..the film, directed by Scott Dow, doesn't attempt any meta-ness beyond perfunctory sight gags..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

DO YOU BELIEVE? :

“..a dramatically different type of movie than "God's Not Dead" - different theme, different direction - but many moviegoers will walk away saying it's a better movie..”
by Michael Foust [Christian Post]

GROWING UP AND OTHER LIES :

“..unfocused and ineffective..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]

TRACERS :

“.."Tracers" is fun to look at, if not too bright, and even includes a line I can only assume is a winking reference to Lautner's claim to fame: "There can only be one alpha in every pack"..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

JAUJA :

“..there's a line between artfully contemplative and just plain boring. This film eventually crosses it into Snoozeville..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

DANNY COLLINS :

“.."Danny Collins" is certainly watchable, but don't go expecting much in the way of surprises..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

ZOMBEAVERS :

“..disgusts, terrifies and tickles in equal measure with grotesque creatures and a sickening sense of humor..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]
