2.5 of 4

“..why the bloodsucker and the wolf boy treat Bella as if she's the cat's meow is still a mystery..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
3 of 5

“..What elevates "Eclipse" above the previous "Twilight" films is that it doesn't take itself so seriously, and Slade doesn't allow his stars to..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..this film will not win over any casual fans or newcomers..”
by Jeff Vice [Deseret News]
3 of 5

“..The truth is, almost everyone planning to see "Eclipse" will know how things end before the opening credits even appear..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

by Peter Debruge [Variety]

“..The movies are interesting without ever being good..”
by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe]
3 of 4

“..the first Twilight film that feels like a real movie in its own right, not just a spin-off from a mass literary cult..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]

“..pretty much more of the same..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
Review rate : C-

by Steve Persall [St. Petersburg Times]

“..Faint praise, indeed. And also misleading..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 4

“..Eclipse, like its two predecessors, is ham-fisted and obvious, a mass-market entertainment with a frustrating lack of imagination..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]

LATEST REVIEWS

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
