2 of 4

“..This sappy, time-traveling love story seems instead as if it sprang from the pages of a Harlequin romance..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..the sparks between Farrell and Brown Findlay are undeniable, but "Winter's Tale" gives us too little of their love story, opting instead to lose itself in magical mumbo-jumbo while at the same time trying to keep one foot in the real, recognizable world..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
0.5 of 4

“..sure, it's a movie aimed at a Valentine's Day audience, but this is like breaking your tooth while crunching down hard on a cinnamon heart..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..some of Winter's Tale is just flat-out pretty enough to work..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..it's a heavy-handed piece of quirky melodrama told with broad strokes and plenty of artificiality. There's just enough sensuality to pique the interest of said target audience, but nothing remotely moving for anyone that hasn't yet shed their virginity..”
by Cole Smithey [ColeSmithey.com]
“..is a movie rife with mysterious and unexplainable phenomena - elusive supernatural occurrences that its characters insist on describing as miracles..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..an ineffectual account of an eternal love..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

DEATH DO US PART :

“..this is a nice one that hits the marks it needs to in just enough fashion..”
by Chuck Conry [ZombiesDontRun.net]

NO GOD, NO MASTER :

“..No God, No Master, his newest work - indicate that Green is both a capable filmmaker and a clear history buff..”
by Danny King [Village Voice]

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE :

“..one of the strongest films yet from Jim Jarmusch..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

JOE :

“..it's a shame the film lacks the same subtlety and force. Joe is about starting over before it's too late..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PERFECT SISTERS :

“..much of the film is slipshod, but the domestic crisis (Mom's new boyfriend is an abusive creep) packs a real wallop, as does the solution..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

RIO 2 :

“.."Rio 2" is not what I would call Amazon prime, but it's got enough silly songs and daffy critters to keep the little ones happy..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

OCULUS :

“..for all its genre delights, Oculus is little more than a well-tooled creepshow..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

DRAFT DAY :

“..while "Draft Day" is a very agreeable and predictable movie, it is also very timely..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 :

“..a patchy script, disappointing action and lackluster villain..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

BAD ASSES :

“..a completely predictable made-for-home video offering, but for those looking for a rather mindless ninety minutes of comic action, it can serve as a reliable time passer..”
by Matt Hough [Home Theater Forum]
