The key here is that you want to find reviews or articles written when the film was released, rather than 5 or 50 years later.
The quickest ways to find a film review are from the database Film Index International or the print reference set Film Review Index:
Titles We Have Cataloged
Here are some of the main magazines, newspapers and journals we have physically or online access for your time period. Go to EWU Library Catalog Title Search to find the call number or hyperlink to online access. Most of them can be found EWU Cheney Main Level Periodicals AP2 (then alphabetically by title.)
Media History Digital Library has scanned several of the older sources that pop up in the Film Review Index. Searching the whole site doesn't seem to work that well. Better to use the Advanced Search and type in the specific magazine in Title and film title as Keyword.
Variety is one resource that is searchable online and offers full text versions of their archived reviews. Click the Search icon magnifying glass at the top right, and type in the film title.
