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]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]
