maxresdefault (34)KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD

“KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD turns out to be nothing more than a failed practice in repetition.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“One or two changes could have possibly put THE WALL in a position to become a cult classic at the very least.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

 

 

THREE GENERATIONS3 GENERATIONS

“Dellal, who also co-wrote, throws so much into the film that it should feel overstuffed: Reproductive rights, marriage equality, non-traditional family structures, cross-generational tensions, gender roles, parental rights, sexual liberation, and even a hint of polyamory all find their way into the film’s structure, often by way of its busy, but warm-hearted, dialogue.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 05/05/2017

guardians-of-the-galaxy-2-kurt-russell-chris-prattGUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2

“We come for the eye-popping visuals and the snarky humor, but we’re touched by the emotional ties of the characters…” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“It kills me to say that GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is more or less a filler episode. You won’t regret watching it, but you’ll probably never want to watch it again.” – Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“What’s missing is that spark of the unexpected that made the first film such a delight. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 isn’t a bad movie, but it feels like a dutiful one, which is almost worse.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is a strange one since it’s kind of hollow while at the same time managing to have one of the more emotionally driven attempts at an ending that you’re probably ever going to see in a film about superheroes.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

 

Busters1BUSTER’S MAL HEART

“BUSTER’S MAL HEART doesn’t exactly feel conventional, but its insistence on convention, however rare, hamstrings its evocative power.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

THE DINNER

“This is a film that is appreciated more in subsequent viewings if you can make it through the first.” – Michael Cox, Edge Boston
