BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 05/25/2018

HanSolo5a7e076419ab9.0SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

“SOLO doesn’t succeed as much as it wants to.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY shows that ROGUE ONE was not a fluke. There are stories to be told in the “Star Wars” universe that don’t have to advance the main saga.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“This one’s more like comfort food for fans, but there are worse ways to kill a couple of hours.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“…Solo is a rather soulless cover version of a character that isn’t even enlivened by the wall-to-wall music that backs his every move.” – Brett Michel, Improper Bostonian

“Don’t look for the angels, or anyone else, to collect much of a share from this misfire.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“FIRST REFORMED is a major work by a cinema giant, urgently reckoning with issues both current and eternal. It is also a form of prayer.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“…the star of the show is also its steady and compelling center: Saoirse Ronan outshines her cast mates here and remains the radiant focus of any project she’s part of.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
