“..the movie doesn't quite come as full circle as that, but it's sure an awesome effort..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..terrifically entertaining..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
“..high-spirited, emotional and funny, "Sound City" is, of all things, a mash note to a machine. Not just any machine, however, but one that helped change the face of rock 'n' roll..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
3 of 4

“..Grohl's appreciation for the inhabitants of this dingy demimonde, from the artists to the secretaries at the front desk, makes Sound City an infectious and sincere Valentine to a rapidly disappearing art form..”

2 STATES :

“..2 States' romantic angle is a little difficult to connect given the way it is moved along in such a hurry in order to incorporate everything, but the family side of the bargain is truly touching..”
by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT :

“..happily, fine acting by Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, Tichina Arnold and Mekhi Phifer, along with Goldberg and Rhames, makes it a cautionary tale worth watching..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

IN MY DREAMS :

“..one of the more satisfying movies the storied franchise has delivered in some time..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
