“..The World's End a sometimes chaotic and uneven comedy..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
4 of 5

“..the film may dwell on the past - on youthful indiscretion, proper friendships, old-fashioned pubs, British teatime sci-fi and reckless boozing..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out]
5 of 5

“..the beauty of this movie, both a nostalgic romp and a futuristic scream, is its stubborn insistence on getting all the trapped-in-amber details right..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
4 of 5

“..it effectively masquerades, for almost half its running time, as a rueful, fast-moving comedy of middle-aged resignation and rebellion..”

LATEST REVIEWS

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

FRESH DRESSED :

“..it's still interesting, just not as much fun..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

BOUND TO VENGEANCE :

“..nevertheless attempts to subvert the sadly commonplace "woman in captivity" narrative, but mostly only succeeds in testing the limits of our gore tolerance..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

TEEN BEACH MOVIE 2 :

“..crammed with catchy tunes, bright sunshine and a perpetually beaming cast of wholesome, winning kids..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

TED 2 :

“..MacFarlane's preference for quantity over quality results in a lot of dead air, but the gags that land are howlers, and all of its crudeness (and racism, and sexism, and homophobia, etc.), the movie beats with a real heart..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

THE LITTLE DEATH :

“..Lawson knows how to capture that elusive comic spark in short exchanges, but they're not enough to fire a full-length film..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

7 MINUTES :

“..featuring intricate, non-linear storytelling and an uncommon emotional pungency, 7 Minutes is a taut, tightly controlled exercise that should spell bigger..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
