REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  2 of 5 [Rate It]

“..what you hope for is not even close to what you get, and in this case we are left with a heartbreaking disappointment of a film..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..unshowy, imparting period flavor without overwhelming what is, ultimately, an underwhelming film..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
2 of 5

“..this is one of those movies that never feels grounded in reality. You never sense any chemistry between the leads..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..the film doesn't end with a happily-ever-after fadeout but a tougher, emotionally satisfying resolution..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
0.5 of 4

“..like hell. The movie feels like a life sentence..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..it's the feel-bad film of the summer and an almost perfect example of how not to turn a book into a movie..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
Review rate : C-

“..in One Day, the words - many of them taken directly from the book - are never convincing..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
2 of 4

“..a frustrating film, never light enough on its feet to be cute, never heartfelt enough to achieve "You had me at 'Hello'"..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..a beautiful movie, but beautiful in a way that life often is, not movies. Nothing is sudden or easy, either for the characters or for the audience, and there are no thunderbolts from the blue..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
