“..there's something charming here-Ping Pong Summer itself feels like an underdog-and there are retro touches that children of the '80s will smile at (remember smelling the liner notes of cassettes?). But ultimately, those are too few and far between..”
by Carla Sosenko [Time Out New York]

“..it's clumsy and bumbling but disarmingly sweet in spirit..”
by Soren Anderson [Seattle Times]

“..here is the rare film that both celebrates an era and feels like it could have been made in it..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]

“..as a nostalgia piece redolent of '80s-era pop culture, "Ping Pong Summer" works better as an affectionate touchstone than fully realized movie..”
by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post]

“.."Ping Pong Summer'' certainly nails the era, right down to a lengthy pan across a none-too-appealing dinner buffet..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
