3 of 5

“..the movie becomes too finely focused on Old Testament payback, losing a bit of dignity in the process..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
3 of 4

“..like "Crazy Heart," it's beautifully and honestly acted; unlike "Crazy Heart," it feels a little stately and predictable..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
3 of 4

“..it's the kind of moment that makes "Out of the Furnace" feel almost profound, even if the moral of its story essentially boils down to this: Never go to New Jersey..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2 of 4

“..is much longer on style and belligerence than actual substance..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

LATEST REVIEWS

MAY IN THE SUMMER :

“..the broader truths in Dabis's screenplay, as does its smart treatment of the region's proximity to armed conflict..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

WATERCOLOR POSTCARDS :

“..we've got a quality film more than competently made, and if you like romantic dramas with a taste of redemption, and closure, then Watercolor Postcards is a strong example of the genre..”
by Mark Bell [Film Threat]

JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE :

“..the send-up is sometimes funny but mostly boring (like the show itself)..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING :

“..but even then, the film offers some new shudders - King's demonic guest has an affinity for ants, and Jung uses them to unsettling effect..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

IF I STAY :

“.."If I Stay" is a movie of blunt contrasts - not just life vs. death, but also extraversion vs. introversion, classical vs. rock..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE BOXCAR CHILDREN :

“..this movie is full of teachable moments and a great addition to our movie library..”
by Kathryn Cummins [Cummins Life]

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]
