TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTIONtransformers-age-of-extinction-30825-2880x1800

“TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is nothing more than a repetitive, mind-numbing orgy of self-indulgent excess by director Michael Bay… filled with a 165-minute long cacophony of ear-splitting noise, on-screen chaos, horrible dialogue and meaningless mayhem.” – Tim Estiloz, Boston Movie Examiner

“I liked it. Mostly. Flaws and all and with a big dollop of self-provided absurdist irony… but yeah, it’s a major improvement over the first three and it’s not a chore to watch.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

“The longer TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION stumbled along, the more I wanted to go home.” – Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

“…a bloated, incoherent mess that may divert children (and grown-ups who enjoyed playing with the toys) who have turned the last three films into international hits. It’s a prime example of why box office is not a good measure of quality.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

THE INTERNET’S OWN BOY: THE STORY OF AARON SWARTZ

“Knappenberger understands the factual complexities of Swartz’s case, and the events that culminated in his 2013 suicide; he also understands how to present them in sterling clarity, and without condescending to a less informed audience.” – Andy Crump, Movie Mezzanine

“Aaron Swartz’s life story is a tragedy, but not for the reasons the makers of THE INTERNET’S OWN BOY would have you believe.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, The Jewish Advocate
