181576_019DIRTY GRANDPA

“Spread the word. The worst movie of 2016 has just been released. It’s called DIRTY GRANDPA.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“It would have taken a decent sized miracle to make DIRTY GRANDPA amusing in any way.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Too bad that amoral isn’t in right now.” – Sam Cohen, Under the Gun Review

 

download (16)THE 5TH WAVE

“Casting Moretz as Cassie was a smart move. Like Jennifer Lawrence in THE HUNGER GAMES films and Shailene Woodley in the DIVERGENT series, Moretz is first and foremost an actress.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“…plodding pacing and sub-par effects prevent The 5th Wave from moving beyond its middling status.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“There’s ultimately nothing groundbreaking in IP MAN 3, but it’s a serviceable martial arts film done in a fashion that many have enjoyed for years.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

 

45-Years-xlarge45 YEARS

“In order to watch 45 YEARS without feeling gutted by the end, you must lack the requisite guts entirely.” – Andy Crump, Birth. Movies. Death.

“The film’s visual style only rarely opens up, and when it does it shows us glimpses of unrelenting horror: Piles of corpses, heaps of ash, leaping flames, white smoke and encroaching darkness that blot everything out.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
