“..you could totally see boxing going this "BattleBots" route and people signing up for pay-per-view bouts that pit unfeeling, speechless machines against each other in fights to the death, even betting on the outcome..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]

“..this is real movie making that packs a solid entertainment punch, proving it doesn't matter what the genre is if genuinely talented and dedicated people are pulling the strings instead of hacks..”

LATEST REVIEWS

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION :

“..Rogue Nation may not be the best, the tightest, or even the most logically coherent M:I flick, but there should be more movies like it: relentlessly thrilling, smart entertainments for folks..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

VACATION :

“..everyone deserves a vacation. And everyone deserves a better comedy than "Vacation"..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

PAPER TOWNS :

“..the adaptation of Paper Towns is a failure. But even as it fails to either develop or subvert its characterization of Margo, it succeeds in complicating all of its ancillary characters..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

SOUTHPAW :

“..a predictable flurry of melodramatic jabs..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE VATICAN TAPES :

“..The Vatican Tapes is comparatively inert, even though it features a lot of the askew camera angles and jump-cuts that fans of the Crank series expect..”
by Noel Murray [A.V. Club]

PIXELS :

“..every joke is forced, every special effect is un-special..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

UNEXPECTED :

“..for a movie about surprises, though, there really aren't many... this academic study tends to feel like it's by the book..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

SAMBA :

“..if it weren't for Sy's charm and cinematographer Stephane Fontaine's superb eye (the scenes set at the immigration detainee camp are especially evocative from a visual standpoint), Samba would be a total wash..”
by Keith Uhlich [A.V. Club]

AMERICAN HEIST :

“..alas, this doesn't excuse the film's childish simplicity, be it a line of cheesy dialogue, an overused camera trick, or the primitive romance..”
by Nikola Grozdanovic [The Playlist]

10 CENT PISTOL :

“..Martin's script holds some hard-boiled appeal, but his direction (some nice technical flourishes aside) doesn't back it up..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
