"FROST/NIXON is an effective, straightforward bigscreen version of Peter Morgan's shrews stage drama about the historic 1977 TV interview in which Richard Nixon brought himself down once again."Variety 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Start with 'magnificent' to describe Frank Langella's bone-deep performance as Nixon. It's one for the time capsule....One of the year's best films..."Rolling Stone 4 stars out of 4 -- "Langella and Sheen originated these roles in the play by Peter Morgan and translate them to screen with awe-inspiring deftness. Langella's bravura performance comprises equal parts nuance, bluster and presidential stature."USA Today "The result is involving, engrossing cinema -- more thrilling, in fact, than Howard's THE DA VINCI CODE -- filmmaking of a type rarely seen anymore and sorely missed."Los Angeles Times "A totally mesmerizing battle of the wills between the occasionally charming yet wily Nixon and the increasingly desperate Frost."Premiere "The story of a duel between a crafty man and a persistent one....Frank Langella is uncanny as RMN. Ron Howard directs mercilessly."Chicago Sun-Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "Howard's confident adaptation is as much about television as it is history....Sheen's performance is magnificent, a layered hero spotted with vanity..."Empire "FROST/NIXON, directed with practiced fluidity by Ron Howard, surges with an energy and visual verve that improve the play and enhance the themes of dramatist Peter Morgan's script..." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly Ranked #4 in Rolling Stone's 'Movies Of The Year' -- "All the actors excel, but Langella is transcendent, a lion roaring against a lonely winter."Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 5 -- "Frank Langella plays Nixon as a wounded lion with a destructive streak fuelled by self-loathing. It's a compelling performance..."Total Film 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his one finds the most compelling truths in anecdotal detail....It's a film worthy of multiple Oscar nominations, and one that probably deserves a few more in categories that don't exist."Box Office "Michael Sheen and Frank Langella, who originated the roles onstage, effectively play Frost and Nixon....Langella permits prosthetic makeup to get the Nixon jowls and gives his voice a Nixonian tenor, but otherwise his is a study in power lost and utter loneliness."Hollywood Reporter15.39219

"[T]he elusive Bill Murray pops up, playing the pot-bellied mayor of a dying underground city. He's fun, and the movie, slathered with grimy color, looks striking."Entertainment Weekly "CITY OF EMBER, based on a popular children's book, has some strong fantasy moments and makes a gentle statement about corruption and blind faith....CITY OF EMBER provides audiences with a thought-provoking and family-friendly adventure."USA Today 3 stars out of 5 -- "Saoirse Ronan makes a plucky tomboy heroine..."Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Ember is a dank urban jungle of crumbling redbricks, rusting lampposts and bleeding pipes, the kind of fantasy-sci-fi-retro world realised by Gilliam or Jeunet and Caro....CITY OF EMBER is full of sprightly visual thrills, and packed with delightful details..."Empire15.39219
