2 of 5

“..we're left with another coming-of-age tale of getting to the emotional maturity while not letting go of the quirk..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..the film - through the languor of its scenes, the soft-spoken sentimentality of its dialogue - is a passive-aggressive exercise in emotional coercion..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
2.5 of 4

“..the faces of youth with a poet's eye for beauty and pain..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
Review rate : C

“..naturally the crazy, pretty, doomed kids fall in love in Restless - this wearying, cottony drama..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
2.5 of 4

“..instead of exploring sorrow, loss and dying in a thoughtful fashion, this has a Lifetime Channel vibe, with a morose bent and artfully framed shots..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..goopy doomed teen romance looks to appeal mostly to impressionable adolescent girls..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]

I AM CHRIS FARLEY :

“..a warm, nostalgic reminder of a talent who died before his time..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
