BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 01/09/2015

selma-01_1500x1000SELMA

“SELMA is a paean to the power of civil disobedience, and what good can come from solidarity against government-sanctioned hate.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“For the first major theatrical release of a film about Martin Luther King Jr., SELMA does a great job of telling a story that was important in defining the man, the people and the country that they lived, fought and died in.” – Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

“This is the King that secular sainthood has stolen from the history books” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

“A film that demands to be seen, despite its flaws. It’s part of American history and a story that we should all know.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

vice_article_story_largeINHERENT VICE

“…this is a movie that rewards multiple viewings, where the lingering questions might amount to “INHERENT twice, or INHERENT thrice?” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“There’s a melancholy undercurrent gathering force as the movie sidewinds its way through the convoluted mystery.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“Anderson has created an aesthetic approach at once overwhelming and laid back. He’s given us a deep indica high.” – Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston

“If you’re going to watch INHERENT VICE, be sure to ignore all of the twists and turns in the supposed story line. Doing so will save you from problems that could come with this flick if you don’t know what you’re in store for.” – Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

 

Liam Neeson i Taken 3TAKEN 3

“…Neeson, one of the unexpectedly essential action stars of the day, has outgrown this franchise by several leagues.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“TAKEN 3 is a slapdash throwaway. Your Dad deserves better.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“That’s basically the underlying appeal of the whole TAKEN franchise: The universe conspires, in form of Scary Foreign Terrorist Types, to teach the ungrateful women in our hero’s life how desperately necessary his presence is.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

 

Predestination-2014-Ethan-HawkePREDESTINATION

“This movie, true to its title, feels completely foreordained — not mention forced and contrived.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
