PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES

“It is goofy fun, and fans of the original will be impressed by just how much of Austen is preserved.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES is such a gallimaufry of ideas and styles and classifications that the film stands no chance of converting skeptics into believers, particularly when those skeptics are either fluent in Romero, or Austen, or both.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES suffers from poor execution in just about every way.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“there’s no ‘joke’ to be told in the movie-proper that’s any funnier than the mere fact that it actually IS a movie and not a 2 ½ minute Lonely Island skit.” – Bob Chipman, The MovieBob

“…like watching Turner Classic Movies while under the influence. ” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“HAIL, CAESAR! is one of the most ambitious films [the Coen brothers] have attempted recently and they certainly pull it off, swimmingly.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“The movies don’t necessarily give us answers to our woes, but they always give us diversion, and that just might be answer enough.” – Andy Crump, A Constant Visual Feast

“…HAIL, CAESAR! is ultimately about the folly of searching for meaning in a cruel and indifferent universe.” – Sean Burns, The Artery

“…the Coens’ script allows the worst fears of the midcentury left and right to be literally realized.” – Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston
