THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE

“If the trend of late is to give superheroes more somber cinematic treatments, then THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE is a reminder that fun need not be traded for po-faced melodrama to come up with something meaningful.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“Audiences universally will surely be entertained, and us comic book fans will get a little extra with the plethora of nods to the genre.” – Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“…this may be one of the very best films based on the DC Comics universe.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 


John-Wick-Chapter-2-2017-Wallpaper-11045JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2

“It is rare that a sequel lives up to the hype generated by its predecessor, but then again, it is rare to have an action hero as slick and unbeatable as John Wick.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Film Thrills

“It works for the simple reason that the characters take the rules of their world seriously, even if we find them preposterous.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 is one of the rare situations where simply raising the stakes works.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…given the sorry, shakycam state of action cinema it’s amazing how director Chad Stahelski frames the characters from head to toe like dancers in an old Hollywood musical, reminding us that light, movement and kinetic energy are what cinema was originally supposed to be about.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“…the film’s idea of “kinky sex” is laughably tame.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Dakota Johnson remains way too good for this material, occasionally unable to suppress giggles at the storyline’s silliness yet gamely going along with it in a way that’s awfully fun to watch.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality
