BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 09/06/2019

Pennywise grins in the dark in the movie IT: Chapter TwoIT CHAPTER TWO

“In a particularly strong cast for this kind of film, Hader emerges as MVP. He may not carry the film, but he makes a difference.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“To be fair, much of the movie’s horror is captured through a flurry of CGI shit being hurled at the screen with loud accompanying noises, but the nightmare-esque ingenuity of these creations is where the film finds its greatest strength when it comes to terror.” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture

“Just because King makes fun of himself for not being able to write a decent finish doesn’t mean we should let him off the hook for this one.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“At its core, IT CHAPTER TWO is a traditional horror movie that tries to be more with a strong bit of assistance from its cast.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Part of the thrill of watching IT CHAPTER TWO is experiencing the way director Andy Muschietti (IT) weaves together past and present, memory and history to complete the story…” – John Black, Gruesome Magazine

BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 08/23/2019

Gerard Butler frantically talking on the phone in the movie Angel Has FallenANGEL HAS FALLEN

“…the point of the series is that it provides visceral and violent action, delivering plenty of jolts mixed in with a dash of humor.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“ANGEL HAS FALLEN is what I’m sure most people probably expect it to be.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

Samara Weaving in a wedding dress holding a gun in the movie Ready or NotREADY OR NOT

“In some ways, this is covering the same ground – albeit in a horror context – as last year’s CRAZY RICH ASIANS” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“READY OR NOT is a beautiful film to look at, even after the blood starts to spray across the family heirlooms.” – John Black, Gruesome Magazine

“READY OR NOT is great fun within a package of biting wit and criticism; it’s a film that ultimately communicates the lengths that the rich will go to maintain their fortune and reputation, even if it comes at the expense of others.” – Greg Vellante, EDGE Media Network

“There’s not a whole lot wrong with READY OR NOT, but it could have been more than what it is.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
