LATEST REVIEWS

THE ONE I LOVE :

“..so is this terrific movie..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KINK :

“..the movie often feels like a full-length ad for a great workplace, which just happens to stash whips and chains in the stationery closet..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS :

“..overall, Leprechaun: Origins is awfully disappointing, and offers little insight as to how this prequel fits into the Leprechaun world..”
by Kalyn Corrigan [Shock Till You Drop]

ARE YOU HERE :

“..there's no sign of the crisp, knowing writing, compelling narratives or sublime character development that are Weiner's hallmarks in this tepid and tentative story..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

CAM2CAM :

“..falls spectacularly short for the genres it hopes to pander in: slasher pic, soft-core, travelogue..”
by Daniel M. Gold [NY Times]

WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL :

“..When the Game Stands Tall fumbles in several ways, failing to make enough of a connection to convey its inspirational message..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

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]

MAY IN THE SUMMER :

“..the broader truths in Dabis's screenplay, as does its smart treatment of the region's proximity to armed conflict..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

WATERCOLOR POSTCARDS :

“..we've got a quality film more than competently made, and if you like romantic dramas with a taste of redemption, and closure, then Watercolor Postcards is a strong example of the genre..”
by Mark Bell [Film Threat]

JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE :

“..the send-up is sometimes funny but mostly boring (like the show itself)..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
