LATEST REVIEWS

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE BOXCAR CHILDREN :

“..this movie is full of teachable moments and a great addition to our movie library..”
by Kathryn Cummins [Cummins Life]

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]

RAGNAROK :

“..the Scandinavian Loch Ness Monster treatment just isn't all that mind-blowing, and unfortunately, anything other than an impossible behemoth with sharp teeth would have been preferable..”
by Zach Hollwedel [Under the Radar]

LET'S BE COPS :

“..a mild chuckle every five minutes or so doesn't justify the predictable slog of this mistaken-identity farce..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]

LIFE AFTER BETH :

“.."Life After Beth," is funny and sweet and more than a bit misguided..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]

THE TRIP TO ITALY :

“..some bits are very funny, but they all come to seem like reaching..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

JAKE SQUARED :

“..Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
