4.5 of 5

“..will be watched every holiday season by children and adults alike - a holiday classic in the making...”
by JimmyO [Joblo]
3 of 4

“..there's more "wow" factor involved than genuine charm. It's fun-enough once, but repeat visits won't be necessary..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
Review rate : B

“..strong central characters and its delicate touch with humor and observation, and while it's a little soft in certain stretches, when it connects, there is magic here..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]
2.5 of 4

“..seems as overloaded as a bulging Christmas stocking..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2.5 of 4

“..just a little something for the kids to put on their Christmas lists for holidays to come..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
“..colorful, strenuous and hyperactive fantasy, which has moments of charm and beauty but often resembles an exploding toy factory rather than a work of honest enchantment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..a lively but derivative 3D storybook spree for some unlikely action heroes..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
0.5 of 4

“.."Rise of the Guardians" is so odd, it's like biting into what looks like chocolate ice cream and discovering it's peach. No, stranger than that: liver..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

LATEST REVIEWS

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]
