Critics’ choice

A WRINKLE IN TIMEUnapologetically a children’s movie, by turns gentle, thrilling and didactic, but missing the extra dimension of terror and wonder that would have transcended the genre. –  AO Scott, The NYTimesI FEEL PRETTYAmy Schumer’s considerable physical comedy skills, paired with standout supporting performances, make this “go girl” comedy a fun pick for a ladies’ night at the movies, despite some inconsistency. – Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense MediaUNSANECinematic master Steven Soderbergh generates tension here without resorting to the usual jumping-out-of-cupboards, but uneven material prevents this thriller from being great. – Michael Ordona, Common Sense MediaEVERY DAYOne can be grateful for more than just the fact that you’re watching a Young Adult drama that doesn’t hinge on car accidents, comas, or terminal cancer. There’s a playfulness to the film. – Owen Gleiberman, VarietyMAYA THE BEE 2: THE HONEY GAMESThe best you could say of this drippy sequel to Maya the Bee is that it’s better than its predecessor by the finest of fuzzy bee hairs. – Leslie Felperin, GuardianMY BLIND DATE WITH LIFEUndeniably schmaltzy but it is also engaging and funny. Only a curmudgeon wouldn’t respond to its life-affirming message. – Allan Hunter, Daily Express (UK)
