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]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
