2 of 4

“..wheezes and hurls like a defective factory issue from McSpooky, Inc., rather than Sam Raimi's supposedly creative Ghost House Pictures..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

“..the film is well-crafted, well-paced, well-shot, and well-acted. But it's, well, so very bland..”
by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer]

LATEST REVIEWS

DOLPHIN TALE 2 :

“..it's worth wading through some sugary-sweet human drama, and the occasional wooden line delivery, for that intimate look at nature..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]

NO GOOD DEED :

“.."No Good Deed" is an example of the worst kind of exploitative thriller..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MY OLD LADY :

“..enjoyable stage adaptation marks a surprisingly late-coming filmmaking debut..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY :

“..it's a finely tuned and tenderly detailed love story of two people told on a cosmic scale, and it's one of the year's greatest relationship films..”
by Nikola Grozdanovic [The Playlist]

MARY KOM :

“..the film presents a preposterously strident re-enactment of a real-life blood-and-sweat tale..”

THE REMAINING :

“.."The Remaining" offers a stark reminder of what is written in the Bible, and many moviegoers will leave with a new look on life, and possibly their faith, too..”
by Emma Koonse [Christian Post Reporter]

INNOCENCE :

“..there's nothing surprising in Innocence; it goes to all the expected places. The shocks are mild, so there's not enough to satisfy horror fans..”
by Cary Darling [Fort Worth Star-Telegram]

FALCON RISING :

“..in all respects, "Falcon" is the very definition of a B picture. Budget: low. Stars: second tier (and lower). Plotting: predictable..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

KELLY & CAL :

“..disarming pic navigates tricky emotional territory to emerge as an impressive feature debut for helmer Jen McGowan..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

THE IDENTICAL :

“..all of this would be fine if The Identical were a movie and not a mouthpiece..”
by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian]
