Peter Travers, or the critic you often see quoted in advertisements or on DVD cases. Sometimes a quote of my own pops out at me, but I try to avoid writing that way. Some of these quotes are more akin to Travers than others, but I thought this would be a fun post.
Anna Karenina - "a lavish production with heartwrenching drama"
Argo - "a crowd-pleaser and a bold dramatic work"
Holy Motors - "a bizarre, moving, and mysterious film"
Jackie Brown - "Tarantino's wicked sense of humor, gift for pacing, and strong casting choices are on full display"
Lawless - "Beautifully shot and wonderfully crafted"
Margaret - "Paquin gives a career-best performance"
Pitch Perfect - "a glorious fusion of hit songs and pop culture references"
A Separation - "packed with great drama and top-notch performances"
Tape - "a powerhouse independent vehicle with strong performances across the board"
Thief - "pulp entertainment at its best"
