“CIVIL WAR looks to be the best Avengers movie so far.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“It’s sure to please those who beat up on BATMAN V SUPERMAN because it mixes lots of quips in with the action, the moralizing, and the tragic revelations.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“The world doesn’t need to be ending and it’s pointless to pretend that the MCU storyline could “finish” here, so instead lets enjoy watching our favorite characters work out some issues, develop some new dimensions and occasionally set off some new fireworks.” – Bob Chipman, MovieBob

“…we must have lots of hand-wringing about collateral damage and the price of heroism because the sad middle-aged dudes who cling so desperately to these films require constant reassurances that they’re *actually about serious issues and stuff* and not just fun stories for children in which men wear tights.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“…unlike Batman and Superman in Zack Snyder’s dud, Cap and Shellhead have genuine affection for each other, based on years of shared history, so it’s truly painful to see them fight, akin to watching a marriage dissolve.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“CIVIL WAR is the cinematic equivalent of an eight-year-old boy playing with his action figures in the bathtub, designed for a far older crowd still trapped in that arrested development.” – Greg Vellante, Forces of Geek

 

Mænd og høns (Anders Thomas Jensen, DK, 2015)MEN & CHICKEN

“…for those that look for an escape in the cinema, “Men & Chicken” offers up a delicious feast. Sweet, funny, strange, and heartfelt, it is an outright great film that your friends will likely hate you for recommending.” – Derek Deskins, Edge Boston

“Family sticks together, especially when everyone in that family shares the same harelip.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
