    Best appreciated for the winning performances of its trio of stars, who convey their characters' desperation with humor and poignancy.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Eventually the conventions of romantic comedy take hold, with the humor declining precipitously.
    • 62 Metascore

    Delivering some genuinely creepy slow-burn moments before devolving into baroque excess, Emelie delivers a nasty twist on an all-too-common scenario.
    • 42 Metascore

    This B-movie, reminiscent of '70s era grindhouse fare, is a reasonably proficient and professional debut that fulfills its modest aspirations.

    Although Criminal retains its source material's cleverness and intricate plotting, something seems to have been lost in the translation.

    It’s all absurd in a way that is typical Besson. But it’s also undeniably entertaining, and it marks a relatively pain-free way to kill, if not three days, at least a couple of hours.

    The film doesn’t fully succeed in elucidating its complex issues. But the wide-spread problem it explores is clearly undeniable, and at the very least this rough-hewn but provocative documentary will hopefully inspire further discussion.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    The film has enough entertaining action and sly humor to please its target audience.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    The creepy evocativeness of its superbly utilized setting...and the well-realized creature designs make it a more than respectable horror effort. The haunting final shot alone makes it worth the price of admission.

    Ultimately fails to illuminate its subject, though it does offer some evocative moments and terrific music along the way.
    • 41 Metascore

    Pound of Flesh should reasonably satisfy his core fans, even if they're more likely to watch it on VOD than in theaters.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Too outlandish to be fully convincing, this adaptation of the best-selling memoir sacrifices subtlety for broad laughs.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Visually stunning if dramatically logy and willfully enigmatic.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Manages to be effective even though the Indian drama is rough around the edges.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    A slight but sweet effort that serves as an excellent showcase for its Mexican star, Jaime Camil. The effortlessly charismatic performer delivers a winning performance in this romantic comedy that somehow manages to work despite its endless contrivances.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Tales of cynical curmudgeons rediscovering their humanity have long been a cinematic staple, but Wonderful World brings a refreshing lack of sentimentality to its take.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    This religious-themed drama earns points for proselytizing in more narratively compelling form than usual. But while the film is watchable and features some effective performances, suffice it to say that it isn’t exactly All the President’s Men.
    • 59 Metascore

    For a younger generation who think that Madonna and Lady Gaga represent the heights of outrageousness, The Outrageous Sophie Tucker stands as a much needed reminder that they have a very large debt to pay.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Essentially a chase movie infused with buddy comedy elements, the film is a fast-paced, mildly entertaining lark that’s chiefly enlivened by Cusack’s droll performance.

    There’s no denying the inherent emotional power of watching Wampler, aided by two experienced climbers, endure his arduous quest to climb a mountain twice the height of the Empire State Building.
    • 65 Metascore

    More interesting conceptually than dramatically, Eric Nicholas' thriller Alone With Her boasts a highly clever technological conceit, albeit one that was exploited many years ago to a lesser degree in "The Anderson Tapes."
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Blair Erickson’s inventive low-budget horror film doesn’t fully live up to its provocative premise, and its extensive use of the found-footage style gives it an all too familiar feel. But it offers some genuine scares along the way, as well as a terrific performance by the ever-reliable Ted Levine.
    • 49 Metascore

    This assemblage of star-filled shorts makes for a generally rewarding grab bag.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    The 3-D effects come fast and furious, rendered with a technical skill and humor that gives this otherwise strictly formulaic slasher picture whatever entertainment value it possesses.

    Gurukulam succeeds in its goal of immersing the viewer in its gentle and spiritual setting. Whether you'll achieve enlightenment watching it is another question.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Although undercut at times by self-indulgence that includes navel-gazing narration by the filmmaker, Rock in the Red Zone delivers a moving portrait of a musical community that's managed to survive under far greater pressures than worrying about the next gig.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Directors Stephen St. Leger and James Mather fill the film's obvious narrative gaps with enough witty banter and tongue-in-cheek humor for audiences to overlook the subpar special effects used throughout.

    Meyer, whose credits include co-directing and co-editing the classic Grey Gardens, largely employs a fly-on-the-wall approach here that sometimes makes for less than compelling viewing. Nonetheless, the film earns points for the importance of its message.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    A surprisingly effective debut effort from writer-director Robert Kirbyson.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Frank Scheck
    Wastes its promising premise with a wavering tone that veers uneasily between camp humor and, pardon the expression, straightness.
