2 of 5

“..there are moments that may entertain pint-sized sprogs, but in truth they deserve much better than this..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]
“..incredibly corny punchlines and Hank Azaria's go-for-broke performance as the incompetent wizard Gargamel are very much the same..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
“..if you've been suffering from Smurf-essence withdrawal, this is the movie to satisfy that craving..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“.."The Smurfs 2" is perhaps a little less grating than its predecessor, which should count for something. But that's the kind of achievement that you can fit under a mushroom..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
