LATEST REVIEWS

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT :

“..happily, fine acting by Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, Tichina Arnold and Mekhi Phifer, along with Goldberg and Rhames, makes it a cautionary tale worth watching..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

IN MY DREAMS :

“..one of the more satisfying movies the storied franchise has delivered in some time..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]
