Critics Consensus: District 9 Is Certified Fresh

Critics Consensus: District 9 is Certified Fresh

This week at the movies, we've got an alien nation (District 9, starring Jason Cope and Sharlto Copley); a high school musical (Bandslam, starring Gaelan Connell and Vanessa Hudgens); a goldfish/human hybrid (Ponyo, with voice work by Cate Blanchett and Noah Cyrus); an ill-timed love affair (The Time Traveler's Wife, starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana), and some renegade salesmen (The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, starring Jeremy Piven and Ving Rhames).

  • Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Oblivion:’ One Release, One Top Spot
    The weekend was very kind to last week’s one and only new release, Oblivion. Otherwise, the charts have remained more or less static since last weekend.

  • New in Theaters: ‘Oblivion’
    As promising and, surprisingly, somewhat original as the film sounds, critics remain unimpressed (aren’t they always?)—Rotten Tomatoes currently rates it at 59%. While the film is visually stunning, and Cruise offers a respectable performance, some insist that there’s not quite enough substance to the script to tie the whole package together. More
  • Disney Confirms 'Star Wars: Episode VII' on Target for 2015
    Disney has been pretty slow to release official information about its slate of upcoming Star Wars sequels, but nobody gets out of CinemaCon without making a few big announcements, and this one's sort of a doozy, albeit in classically circumspect Mouse House fashion: Episode VII is indeed coming to theaters in 2015, with a new Star Wars-related film to follow every summer.

  • ‘Nine Lives’ And Why Not Screening Your Movie For Critics Is Never A Good Idea
    In that context, why hide it? Not screening your movie for critics is like deep frying a bunch of Snickers bars and then not putting up a sign. It’s an apology. Actually, it’s worse: It’s a pre-apology. It hurts word of mouth. Just look at this year ...
