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]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
