BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 04/19/2019

00thecurse-1-facebookJumboTHE CURSE OF LA LLORONA

“…a competently made horror film that probably wouldn’t have attracted much notice if it wasn’t billed as part of THE CONJURING universe.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“The movie doesn’t try to be the next great horror film of the year. Still, it’s hollow at its core, void of mythology and social intention.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

 

Disneynature "Penguins"PENGUINS

“For the Disneynature films, it’s not about survival of the fittest, but the survival of the cutest.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Over the years this reviewer has noted certain ‘family films’ as ones where the parents ought to flip a coin with the loser having to take their offspring to the movies. Not this time –– DUMBO is a movie that everyone can enjoy.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
