“..the actors can't make "Pacific Rim" any better..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..Pacific Rim is big and dumb in a smart way..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
“..offers a few laughs and a few thrills, but it feels like a very large platter serving a disappointingly meager meal..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
“..offering up an apocalyptic spectacle in a spirit of unpretentious, unapologetic fun..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
3 of 5

“..is entirely in keeping with much expensively-made effects-heavy cinema of the present time: it's put together with such artistry and such devotion that it can't help but be impressive as a visual spectacle..”
by Andrew Pulver [The Guardian]
1.5 of 4

“..for those not fascinated by two hours of unabated robot vs. alien smackdowns, the movie holds little appeal..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
3 of 5

“..action sequences that are breathtaking in scope and ferocious in intensity..”
by Ben Rawson-Jones [Digital Spy]
3 of 5

“..a big, brash, unpretentious B movie that lives down to its billing: robots punching monsters - it does what it says on the Rim..”
by Ian Nathan [Empire Magazine]
“..a better-and-smarter-than-average humans-vs.-monsters spectacular..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

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]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]
