BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 09/04/2020

Jesse Buckley looking concerned with her hand on her chest in the movie I'm Thinking of Ending ThingsI’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS

“Is I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS worth seeing? Of course it is; Kaufman is the sort of singular auteur who is always worth checking out […] But what you get out of it probably depends on what you bring into it; to those not on the film’s wavelength, its elliptical structure and feel-bad characters will be an endurance test.” – Oscar Goff, Boston Hassle

“I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS is a meticulous film that’s enigmatic, challenging, and haunting. It pushes you to question what’s on-screen.” – Megan Kearns, EDGE Media Network

 

The poster for the documentary Mr. Soul!MR. SOUL!

“The documentary makes the best case for how the arts and a TV show can engender groundbreaking cultural change by reflecting to the community ALL of itself.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

 

 

Yifei Liu holds poised to fire an arrow in the movie MulanMULAN

“We’ve seen this movie before, and not just because it’s a remake. We’ve seen it before because, at its core, there isn’t much originality in this blockbuster’s bones.” – Greg Vellante, EDGE Media Network

“Only exceeded in quality and entertainment value by the live-action CINDERELLA; MULAN takes a rather simplistic animated story and elevates it into something more evolved and wonderfully different in many ways.” – Tim Estiloz, Kaleidoscope Reviews

“It’s an expansively shot and handsomely choreographed epic adventure that will inspire all the women (and the men I hope) in your household; it inspires me still, and I know the story well.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

 

A poster for the documentary Robin's WishROBIN’S WISH

“If you’re searching for a work that attempts to profile the beautiful life of a marvelous soul and succeeds, despite the pedestrian nature of its cinematic construction, ROBIN’S WISH is the ideal fit.” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture

BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 08/28/2020

The poster for the movie Bill & Ted Face the MusicBILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC

“BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC is so silly, corny, fun, and enjoyable that it perfectly matches the tone of the first two films without ever sacrificing its newfound ingenuity and slightly-more-adult tones.” – Greg Vellante, EDGE Media Network

“BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC is unpretentious silly fun. Their adventures still rule.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

John David Washington and Robert Pattinson basked in red light stare each other down in Christopher Nolan's TenetTENET

“…a humorless, superficially complex film masking a standard plot lacking emotional drive and chemistry between its stars. While enhanced by presentation on the large screen, the film would suffer little if we watched it at home.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices
