REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..wastes much of its running time on the expected bawdy shtick and man-cave musings..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]
1.5 of 5

“..the movie's cliches and technical spottiness aside, "The Watch" is still not very good, overall..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..the movie could be worth sitting through if it were some grand disaster of a sci-fi-sex comedy..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
2 of 4

“..much of the action takes place in the Costco, which brings up unfortunate memories of the old John Hughes movie "Career Opportunities," which took place mostly inside a Target..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
2.5 of 4

CHRISTIAN MINGLE :

“..a sweet romantic comedy that is faith friendly..”
by Donna Rolfe [The Dove Foundation]

MALL :

“.."Mall" is definitely worth a look..”
by Billy Tatum [AXS]

DARK WAS THE NIGHT :

“.."Dark Was the Night" doesn't break the monster movie mold, but does fill it to capacity with eerie atmosphere and creeping chills elevated by terrific acting..”
by Ian Sedensky [Culture Crypt]

BIG DRIVER :

“..if you do enjoy the once in a while thriller, and like to see a story that pushes you to think, then Big Driver is for you..”
by Nathan M Rose [FlickDirect]

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

HOUSEBOUND :

“..creepy, silly, inventive, darkly funny and, at one point, mind-blowingly bloody..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
