PROMISED LAND

Promised Land
“This game is lopsided from the get-go because Matt Damon is Matt Damon, and John Krasinski is John Krasinski. One’s the most sympathetic, unshowiest bona fide movie star we’ve got right now, and the other is some smug asshole from television who still can’t figure out how to shade a performance.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 12/26/2012

NOT FADE AWAY

Not Fade Away

“It’s a strange film, and I don’t think it entirely works, but I can see what he was attempting. This is a very familiar story, so familiar that he skips across the predictable beats in an elliptical fashion, focusing mostly on odd details. It feels very much like a personal remembrance using the hackneyed formula as a clothesline.” – The Awl, 12/21/2012

HYDE PARK ON HUDSON

Hyde Park On Hudson

“A tedious affair about a tedious affair. There’s nothing quite so frustrating as watching history through the eyes of the least interesting person in the room. I think even Daisy Suckley herself might wonder why anybody would want to make a movie about her.” – The Improper Bostonian, 12/12/2012

PLAYING FOR KEEPS

Playing For Keeps

“Butler’s appeal continues to mystify me; the marble mouthed lummox draws ladies like flies without being charismatic or even remotely interesting. And someone maybe should have told this guy if you want to rekindle a romance with a woman, you probably shouldn’t start by sleeping with all her friends.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 12/05/2012
