3.5 of 4

“..visually, Les Miserables is a splendid spectacle, with set and costume design unparalleled in any 2012 period piece..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
3 of 4

“..there's no lip-synching here..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
3 of 4

“..the utter lack of modulation - and the near-complete absence of spoken dialogue, just like onstage - makes for pretty wearying viewing as the movie works its way into its third hour..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..the quality of the sound recording is exceptional, too, as crisp as in the best concert films and live album..”
by Scott Foundas [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..the movie drags itself down..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
3 of 4

“..panoramic shots of the poor, faces encrusted with sores and grime, begging for pennies from the rich, drive home the desperation of 19th-century France..”
by Karen D'Souza [San Jose Mercury News]
3.5 of 4

“..overflows with humor, heartbreak, rousing action and ravishing romance. Damn the imperfections, it's perfectly marvelous..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
4 of 5

“..fortunately, this sprawling epic is well-anchored. There cannot be a better big-screen showman than Jackman..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..aside from that opening scene, you will not be cinematically edified. This is a bad movie..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]

LATEST REVIEWS

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]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
