2 of 5

“..where it most disappoints is how it starts with good, raw materials, and miraculously turns itself into empty calories..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..too late to the Ponzi-scheme party to be topical, and not outrageous enough to take advantage of its own setups..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
“..this effort - veering wildly from broad comedy to sensitive drama - feels even more ungainly than most..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..predictable race-based jokes, many of which have the saving grace of actually being funny..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“..is less a movie than it is an exercise in product branding..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..for anyone entering the filmmaker's comedic world for the first time, "Witness Protection" would make a terrible introduction..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

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]
