LATEST REVIEWS

HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA :

“..the title tells us that the film is yet another 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' variant, so we can't complain when the plot points start feeling the same, even if the details are different..”
by Shubhra Gupta [Indian Express]

THE BATTERED BASTARDS OF BASEBALL :

“..Bing Russell built it, and they came..”
by Daniel M. Gold [New York Times]

THE PERFECT WAVE :

“.."The Perfect Wave" is aimed at a certain audience that will appreciate its message and let slide its deficiencies..”
by Mary Houlihan [Chicago Sun-Times]

AFFLUENZA :

“..nothing is revealing or surprising in this horse-beating tale of spiritual poverty among the extremely wealthy..”
by Chris Klimek [The Dissolve]

RAGE :

“..but this one is funless and lackluster, a grinding mess of pulp cliches with dull characters, perfunctory violence and dim plotting..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

ROAD TO PALOMA :

“..this film is numbingly dull, an outlaw-on-the-run saga as laconic and slow-moving as its fierce, hirsute protagonist..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]

LAND HO! :

“..the characters reorder their lives that makes Land Ho! seem both a little slight and a little precious..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [AV Club]

BOYHOOD :

“..Boyhood is a masterpiece..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]

PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE :

“..a dramatic improvement over the original, introducing thrilling action sequences backed by actual stakes and an unexpected emotional dimension, all on top of upgraded animation and a greater emphasis on character..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

SCHOOL DANCE :

“..this witless comedy is equal opportunity offensive..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
