REVIEWS: The Jungle Book, Green Room, Sing Street and Criminal
The Jungle Book: "It’s a fun and rollicking adventure that offers scares, laughs, tenderness and thrills. Favreau has raised the bar on Disney’s live-action adaptations, and delivered his greatest film yet."
Green Room: "a smart, sick and suspenseful thriller that is perfect for a night out with friends. Sure to spark those 'what would you do' discussions, Green Room will prove entertaining and compelling long after the credits have rolled and the smoke has cleared."
Sing Street: "a bittersweet celebration of youth and that sweet spot where life’s possibilities seems infinite and terrifying all at once. Carney builds his story from a familiar foundation, then uses the imagination of its heroes to grow into fantasy sequences, musical numbers, and a rousing finale that will make you want to stand up and cheer."
Criminal: "With his limbs lashing out and his snarling mouth firing off F-bombs, Costner clearly relishes playing a badass, which makes Jericho’s mayhem feel like an illicit pleasure."
Plus an interview with Criminal's director Ariel Vromen.
