BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 07/27/2018

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT

“GHOST PROTOCOL has been the definitive feature film that’s been able to deliver at that level more than any other, but that’s changed with FALLOUT forcing its way into the discussion.” - Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“You likely already know how the plot will end, but that’s not the point of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT. You watch it for the action and for Tom Cruise, and the movie delivers on both fronts.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“All kidding aside, I would say this franchise has definitely found its bearings alongside the likes of the FAST AND FURIOUS series when it comes to action.” – Byron McNeal, Nerd Caliber

 

 

enelseptimodiastill3_-_h_2017EN EL SÉPTIMO DÍA

“In EN EL SÉPTIMO DÍA we meet the unsung backbone of New York City’s service industry. But of course this gentle, unassuming film would never come out and say it that way.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

 

BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 07/20/2018

maxresdefault (3)MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN

“…that rarest of sequels: it surpasses the original.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

 

download (1)EIGHTH GRADE

“EIGHTH GRADE wouldn’t be the success it is without the perfect lead, and [Elsie] Fisher is perfect in her general physical demeanor and line delivery.” – Allyson Johnson, Cambridge Day

“The film reflects arguably the worst stretch of growing up in America’s education system, but it’s rarely if ever ugly. Instead, it’s compassionate, radiating retroactive kindness for the children we all were to soothe the adults we are now.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“[It] won’t be considered a standout in the career of the director or the actor, but it’s not an embarrassment either.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

 

download (3)DON’T WORRY, HE WON’T GET FAR ON FOOT

“This is Van Sant’s project, and his fans will rejoice, but it’s Phoenix who’s the star.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“It’s got an impish sense of humor befitting [John] Callahan’s sickly funny cartoons, which sometimes spring to life in crudely animated interludes.” - Sean Burns, The ARTery

SKYSCRAPER

“In the late 1970s on the comedy series “SCTV,” John Candy and Joe Flaherty did a bit called “Farm Film Report” in which they reviewed the films of the day. Their highest praise was for movies that “blowed up real good.” They would have loved SKYSCRAPER.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“SKYSCRAPER is an action movie where you’re going to get what you’re probably hoping for.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“The high points of SKYSCRAPER are, not too surprisingly, its literal high points.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“Put bluntly, we deserve better than this. The Rock deserves better than this. Neve Campbell deserves better than this. Big, dumb summer action movies deserve better than this.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

 

180705132711-hotel-transylvania-3-exlarge-169HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION

“Overall, HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3 is an easy movie for summer vacation. It contains no real scares, but it’s fun enough for monster kids of all ages.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“With a richly textured visual technique and bone-dry humor, [Lucretia] Martel takes no small pleasure in depicting the gears of colonialism grinding up its own.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

 

 

elvis-presleyTHE KING

“THE KING isn’t particularly interested in Elvis Presley as an artist or a person, cutting his most famously iconic performances to such smithereens the uninitiated may wonder what the fuss was all about.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery
