BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 01/19/2018

 

den-of-thievesDEN OF THIEVES

“All in all, this is such a surprise for the mid-January release slog – an entertaining, funny and consistently anxious film that leaves you teetering on the edge.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“Outside of the issues that DEN OF THIEVES has, there’s a lot to like about what’s unfolding as the movie presses forward.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“It won’t make any ten best lists next year, but as a midwinter entry to rev the engines, it satisfies.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“At least we know now that [Gerard] Butler’s career hasn’t been a complete fluke. The guy still has work to put out, if only someone could give him the right script.” – Sam Cohen, Substream Magazine

 

forever-my-girl-movie-hollywood-mickey-liddell-interview1-1FOREVER MY GIRL

“No one would call this film a triumph of feminism, but you could say it’s been shot from an idealistic female gaze.” – Michael Cox, Edge Boston

 

 

 

thelma-trailerTHELMA

“…the greatest horror lies in the movie’s subtext — the internal prison of believing that your desires are destructive. It’s a movie about not being able to be who you are.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

 

 

momdadheaderMOM AND DAD

“In a tight 83 minutes, writer/director Brian Taylor sets up his absurd premise, and then runs with it. Don’t watch this one with your parents – or your children.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“The concept is just clever enough for you to wish it had been developed further.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“If cinema were a china shop, then Nicolas Cage is the bull.” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture

 

 

FILM-12STRONG-REVIEW-ADV1912 STRONG

“12 STRONG is less a celebration of American military might than of the tenacity of the men who responded to the horrors of 9/11 by answering their country’s call.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“12 STRONG isn’t something you are guaranteed to regret watching, but it is a missed opportunity for Warner Bros. Pictures when you look at what they had in front of them.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
