What are people saying?

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Star

    "The Star" is not nearly as artless not as pathetic as past Sony Animation efforts ("The Smurfs," "The Emoji Movie"). One of the reasons for this is that it takes its silly concept and crafts a mostly watchable, serviceable picture out of it. Its proselytizing is kept to a minimum while its obvious score and emotions are cranked up to 11, yet it still manages to satisfy thanks to an earnest narrative and a great cast
