LATEST REVIEWS

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

FRESH DRESSED :

“..it's still interesting, just not as much fun..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

BOUND TO VENGEANCE :

“..nevertheless attempts to subvert the sadly commonplace "woman in captivity" narrative, but mostly only succeeds in testing the limits of our gore tolerance..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

TEEN BEACH MOVIE 2 :

“..crammed with catchy tunes, bright sunshine and a perpetually beaming cast of wholesome, winning kids..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

TED 2 :

“..MacFarlane's preference for quantity over quality results in a lot of dead air, but the gags that land are howlers, and all of its crudeness (and racism, and sexism, and homophobia, etc.), the movie beats with a real heart..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
