4 of 5

“..this version does have dwarves, and they're played by non-dwarf actors who've been reduced by special effects..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
3 of 5

“..this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..they summon up a sumptuously dark and revisionist kingdom that's closer to "Game of Thrones" than the Brothers Grimm..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
“..there's no sense of narrative priority-the filmmakers can't see the Dark Forest for the trees..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..the script and dialogue are both frequently dull and there's a painful lack of humour throughout..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
3.5 of 5

by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

“..imperfections in first-time director Rupert Sanders' surreal epic fantasy don't ruin the overall effect, just tarnish it a little..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]
4 of 4

“..he film has the DNA of a blockbuster and the soul of a haunting folk tale. It is as dangerous, dark, intelligent and beautiful as its wraithlike villainess..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News]

by Scott Bowles [USA Today]

LATEST REVIEWS

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR :

“..director J.C. Chandor has delivered a tough, gritty, richly atmospheric thriller that lacks some of the formal razzle-dazzle of his solo seafaring epic..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

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]
