LATEST REVIEWS

DEATH DO US PART :

“..this is a nice one that hits the marks it needs to in just enough fashion..”
by Chuck Conry [ZombiesDontRun.net]

NO GOD, NO MASTER :

“..No God, No Master, his newest work - indicate that Green is both a capable filmmaker and a clear history buff..”
by Danny King [Village Voice]

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE :

“..one of the strongest films yet from Jim Jarmusch..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

JOE :

“..it's a shame the film lacks the same subtlety and force. Joe is about starting over before it's too late..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PERFECT SISTERS :

“..much of the film is slipshod, but the domestic crisis (Mom's new boyfriend is an abusive creep) packs a real wallop, as does the solution..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

RIO 2 :

“.."Rio 2" is not what I would call Amazon prime, but it's got enough silly songs and daffy critters to keep the little ones happy..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

OCULUS :

“..for all its genre delights, Oculus is little more than a well-tooled creepshow..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

DRAFT DAY :

“..while "Draft Day" is a very agreeable and predictable movie, it is also very timely..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 :

“..a patchy script, disappointing action and lackluster villain..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

BAD ASSES :

“..a completely predictable made-for-home video offering, but for those looking for a rather mindless ninety minutes of comic action, it can serve as a reliable time passer..”
by Matt Hough [Home Theater Forum]
