Review rate : B+

“..one of the nerviest dramas of the season can be mistaken for a soft, sentimental story..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 4

“..it's as life-affirming as an extinction event film can be..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2.5 of 4

“..despite a variety of saves from little treats that come through the supporting cast, we're left with the feeling the end may be near, but not near enough..”

“..Carell and Knightley give it their bittersweet best. But I never rooted for them as a couple, never felt a chemistry in their bond..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3 of 4

“..an unusual film, resistant to the usual end-of-mankind cliches. The script is full of surprises..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..after 100 minutes of gallows humor and surprise left turns, Seeking a Friend leaves us with a disappointingly banal observation..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]
“..achieves the colorless tedium of a safe, dozy dream of catastrophe instead of anything like the real deal..”
by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
