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]
