Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas sit next to each other in a cafe talking to someone across the table in the film Deep WaterDEEP WATER

“Then there’s movies like DEEP WATER that are slick enough to hold your interest, yet vapid enough that you’ll be glad you watched it on your sofa instead of in a movie theater.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

Zoe Saldana stands next to Ryan Reynolds pointing a futuristic gun at something in the movie The Adam ProjectTHE ADAM PROJECT

“The solid cast invests the story with emotion and some humor, Reynolds’ occasional snarkiness provides a nice counterpoint to Scobell’s mix of tween angst and excitement about the future, especially the gadgets he’s told not to touch.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

A girl has a surprised look on her face as she holds a disposable cameraMOVING IN 2008

BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 02/04/2022

Charlie Hunnam stands outside his car looking skeptical in the movie Last LooksLAST LOOKS

“LAST LOOKS is a cleverly-plotted modern film noir detective story. Writer Howard Michael Gould (adapting his own novel) and director Tim Kirkby know what’s expected, even as they give it a fresh 21st century spin.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

Patrick Wilson floats toward an open hatch in the movie MoonfallMOONFALL

“…Emmerich and his co-writers Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen proceed to mix drama, comedy, and physics-defying special effects in a race against time to save the Earth. Amidst all the clichés give them credit for some originality. The explanation for what’s happening to the moon and why it’s happening is so off-the-wall that you’re not likely to see it coming.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
