Although McHale’s pro-"Showgirls" theories are interesting to listen to, there’s a smoke-and-mirrors quality to them.
First-time director Goran Stolevski takes chances, doesn’t underestimate his audience, and tells a story worth telling.
In the realm of throwaway horror flicks, there’s a place for "You Should Have Left" but it doesn’t deliver enough to warrant being labeled as more.
Weaknesses aside, it’s a feel-good experience with more to recommend it than the obligatory nostalgia trip associated with half-century old songs.
The chances taken compensate for the weakness resulting from a derivative story.
Combining such diverse genres as teen/high school romances, disaster movies, and ghost stories, "Your Name" covers a vast canvas.
Slow and dreamy but never boring - the acting is too good and the images too beguiling for that.
