    • 80 Metascore

    In the end, the material feels a bit attenuated, like a short that’s been stretched to feature length, even if the characters are enjoyable, sympathetic enough company for the pic’s 84-minute running time.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Felperin
    A sweet but slight love story about world-weary hipster bloodsuckers.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    An undeniably powerful record of the Palestinian village of Bil'in's course of civil disobedience from 2005 to the present...the pic is also shamelessly sentimental and manipulative in its construction.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Beautifully assembled, but emotionally inert despite its focus on bereavement and love's endurance, Russian art film Silent Souls reps at the very least a significant step up for its helmer, Aleksei Fedorchenko.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Felperin
    Presented and narrated with warmth and welcome moments of humor by thesp Jeremy Irons, often seen wearing a hat that looks salvaged from a recycling bin, the picture delivers a judicious mix of human interest and useful statistics that will make it accessible to middle-class audiences.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Felperin
    It feels ineffably slight even if it’s a consistent pleasure to spend time in the company of these three likeable women.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Rambling and unfocused but not without its moments.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Mixed-media approach is eye-catching, and the subject is unquestionably powerful, but the sentimental score and stridently drawn imagery detract from picture's impact.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    A respectable but surprisingly conventional feature-debut effort from Brit artist-turned-helmer Sam Taylor-Wood.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Although a massive hit at home, taking approximately $16 million at the wickets, this great-looking but tonally uneven pic won't jive with audiences quite so well anywhere else.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Has sturdy production values, a tony cast and middlebrow tastefulness up the wazoo, but barely any soul, bite or genuine passion.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Corny as a vat of polenta, but still rib-sticking enough to satisfy those who like lightly seasoned, easily digestible cinematic starch, Italy-set Love Is All You Need offers a romantic comedy for middle-aged palettes.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    It’s no surprise to learn this was developed from a short film; it has a short’s fragmented, tone-poem quality, but not the sustained coherence of a feature.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Felperin
    A pleasant, polished, but somewhat by-the-numbers effort.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Leslie Felperin
    Neither scary, funny, nor anywhere near as clever as it seems to think it is, picture offers audiences few reasons to want to see it beyond its one-joke premise.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Part bromance, part sci-fi spoof and all a bit disappointing.
    • 57 Metascore

    There’s no doubting Brook and the performers’ commitment to their craft, even if the end result is somewhat repetitive.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    The picture works best as a vehicle for the likable talents of thesp Aasif Mandvi, arguably best known for his occasional "reporting" on the Middle East on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart."
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    This computer animated work has strikingly designed characters, and some good isolated sequences, but the script’s un bordel (French for shambolic mess).
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Although director Alan Taylor manages to get things going properly for the final battle in London, the long stretches before that on Asgard and the other branches of Yggdrasil are a drag.
    • 54 Metascore

    If the metrics by which you want to measure Love are its brute sexiness and technical panache, then the film is indeed rather extraordinary. Thanks to Noe's regular collaborator Benoit Debie (who also shot such recent visually bravura films as Spring Breakers and Lost River), Love contains some of the prettiest shagging scenes in cinematic history.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Fuzzy-headed biopic, which glosses over the former British prime minister's politics in favor of a glib, breakneck whirl around her career and marriage.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Felperin
    Jig
    Although there is some insightful observational work, and the dancing itself is aces, pic feels overcrowded with characters.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    The result is a superficially handsome crime thriller that doesn't tick, although it's got a pretty, jeweled face, and some clever scripting by William Monahan (scribe of "The Departed"), making his directorial debut here.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Felperin
    Some parts – the solid cast, a few well-turned one-liners – are really quite good indeed, although viewers have to wade through a moderate fug of reindeer fart jokes to get to them.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Felperin
    In some ways, the thoughtful, dense script marks an improvement on the original, and the cast is certainly tonier this time around. What’s missing is the original’s evil wit, amoral misanthropy and subversive slipperiness.

    The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a sluggish also-ran compared to its predecessor.

    Ultimately, "Renee" feels less like a walk away than a retread.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Leslie Felperin
    Half of a Yellow Sun is the kind of ambitious literary adaptation that wants it all kinds of ways, not all of them compatible.
    • 50 Metascore

    Franco offers up a competently acted, technically adequate Cliff Notes take on Faulkner’s narratively refracted tale of dirt-poor Mississippi folk in mourning.
