The Upside

I can't exactly recommend you take a chance with this one. Why? Well, because you have seen it all before, and probably done better.

Asher Luberto, Film Inquiry

Welcome to Marwen

Since Welcome to Marwen plays like a car accident, you simply have to watch no matter what horrifying image is lurking just around the bend.

Asher Luberto, Film Inquiry

Nobody's Fool

A comedy with Tiffany Haddish, Tika Sumpter, and Whoopi Goldberg makes for a nice mental picture, but once the movie actually starts, you begin to realize that you, and the hero, have been cat-fished.

DVD/STREAMING

Pokémon 4Ever

There's no point to prolonging the inevitable, except to pad the movie out to its barely feature-length run time.

Tasha Robinson, AV Club

Suburbia

An essential entry in early-'80s independent American cinema, Suburbia receives a radical Blu-ray upgrade from Shout! Factory, along with a pair of commentaries worth hearing in full.

Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine

10 Things I Hate About You

Based to a great degree on William Shakespeare's much-filmed Taming of the Shrew, 10 Things I Hate About You is without question the teen movie to watch with your best girl or yarn carrying grandma.
