"Everyone has their Nic Cage guilty pleasure. This is mine."

"Kore-eda and this wonderfully nuanced cast create a warm, insulated atmosphere that really just hits the nail on the head on what it means to bond as a family. There is an air of danger throughout the film which continually brings the family to their safe haven. A great, melancholic tale of life's fleeting moments and an appreciation of whatever works."

"Very nearly a good movie and a classic case of wasted potential. The first third was fantastically suspenseful and enigmatic, Goddard includes elements of horror to fully realize the dark secrets of the hotel. The complexity of the mystery doesn't quite hold up as everything falls apart around the time Hemsworth finds his way onto the screen. The film quickly devolves into an unfunny comedic romp and whimpers out to a cliched ending. Lots of firepower here, but most shots were missed."

"A movie that truly feels like it was made by someone who lived through this exact scenario. A totally unromanticized view of a failed marriage in its total pathetic glory. Mulligan just nails her part. "

"It was as if there was an eternal fire burning just behind the screen, emanating out of every frame and detour. IBSCT deliberately pits the power of love against the bars of systematic oppression and declares neither side the winner. Heartbreaking, infuriating, but undeniably passionate work from Jenkins."

"A movie with outrageous blackface, gratuitous nudity and public shooting threats that manages to still be a Christmas classic in 2018 what an achievement. "

"It can't be ignored that Lars literally included a greatest hits of his own filmography in the middle of this. Unforgivable. That ignored, I did quite love the pace and punchiness of THTJB - in many ways it is LVT's most upbeat film and I think it should be considered as one of the boldest serial killer films ever made. Certainly one of the funnest."

"Of all the ways I thought this movie could play out, Julia Roberts going semi Liam Neesons was not one of them."
