Rolling Stone (p.70) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Jet are at their best in the high power-riff gear of 'Stand Up' and 'Rip It Up', with singer-guitarist Nic Chester barking and bawling like an improbable trinity of Liam Gallagher, Bon Scott and Axl Rose."Entertainment Weekly (p.68) - "Jet turn on the afterburners in this bombastic follow-up to their 2003 debut, GET BORN, surging forward under heavier guitars, louder choruses, and shriekier iterations..." -- Grade: B-Q (p.136) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The first single, 'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is', ranks as one of the best old-fashioned rock 'n' roll songs in recent memory, funky like early-'70s Stones..."Q (p.122) - Ranked #29 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "SHINE ON was the year's very finest example of fist-in-the-air Everyman rock."0.200095

Entertainment Weekly (4/23/99, p.63) - "...The first two discs are especially revelatory, tracing the band's metamorphosis from naive Yardbirds copyists to sicko psychedelicists to the definitely tough, tuneful hard-rock unity they became in the '70s. Hey, kids: Skip those Marilyn Manson tickets and invest in this instead." - Rating: B+CMJ (5/17/99, p.29) - "...thoroughly represents Alice's career from the early days to his most recent recordings....if you can't get a celebratory springtime headbang going listening to "School's Out," you're dangerously close to turning into your parents."0.1592084

"[A]n atmospheric, tear-jerking, highly cinematic melodrama....This is a film that kids, middle-aged adults and grandparents can all see -- together or separately -- and get something out of in their own ways."Hollywood Reporter "WAR HORSE has the sweep of a classic John Ford movie, the sentiment of Frank Capra and a spirited steed named Joey who will steal your heart."Los Angeles Times "WAR HORSE has an exhilarating, impressionistic beauty....In the hands of a master director like Steven Spielberg, the story is impeccably crafted and heartfelt..."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "WAR HORSE is bold, not afraid of sentiment and lets out all the stops in magnificently staged action sequences."Chicago Sun-Times "Steven Spielberg's WAR HORSE is masterly, accomplished, stirring....Engaging..."Movieline 3 stars out of 4 -- "Spielberg has created an appropriate showcase for the magnificent creature that emerges, one that recalls the great movie horses of yore in a story guaranteed to pluck, grab and wring viewers' hearts..."Washington Post "Steven Spielberg has fashioned an impressive entertainment, and an occasionally stirring one, from source material with a singular pedigreeMichael Morpurgo's short novel..."Wall Street Journal "To create his disarmingly earnest film, Spielberg draws from the past. Its tone is humanistic and its technique classic." -- Grade: AA.V. Club "With widescreen, pastoral vistas dappled in golden sunlight and washed in music that is somehow both grand and folksy, Mr. Spielberg lays siege to your cynicism, bombarding you with strong and simple appeals to feeling."New York Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] film of 1,000 spectacular magic-hour shots....Whether showing the horrors of war or the humanity of those caught up in the conflict, it hits home."Total Film "This is a beautifully built, classically framed movie, shot with the unshowy natural expressiveness of a John Ford Western by Spielberg's great cinematographer, Janusz Kaminski." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "[We're] aware of being the presence of one of cinema's great shot-makers. Spielberg covers an ill-fated massed British cavalry charge with a sidelong tracking shot straight out of Olivier's HENRY V..."Sight and Sound0.09525517

That's in large part due to the stars, whose roles very much play to their familiar comic strengths..."Variety 3 stars out of 4 -- "Misfits and misanthropes are the heroes of ROLE MODELS, a surprisingly clever comedy....It is consistently funny, largely because of the sharp dialogue..."USA Today "ROLE MODELS wouldn't be anything without Mintz-Plasse....[His] camera presence is at once unfailingly modest and distinctive."Los Angeles Times "ROLE MODELS is the kind of movie you don't see every day, a comedy that is funny....There are nicely drawn supporting characters..."Chicago Sun-Times "The fun of ROLE MODELS is that it's a high-concept movie executed with speed and finesse and the kind of brusquely tossed-off scene banter that can get you laughing before you know what hit you." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t transcends its high concept through strong performances, filthy-smart patter, a winning affection for all its core characters and ability to hit its emotional targets without descending into slush."Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "The cast is good enough to make it all seem like snarky improv, especially Paul Rudd....ROLE MODELS is positively grinchy -- and all the funnier for it."Total Film "[I]t's a self-improvement comedy that hits every beat on time....Rudd and Scott hail from different universes of movie comedy, but manage together here just fine..."Hollywood Reporter0.08962712
