SOUTHPAW

“Overall, SOUTHPAW doesn’t come close to living up to all that it could have been.” – Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

“Fuqua, who brought out the darkness in Denzel Washington when he directed the actor toward an Oscar in TRAINING DAY, does the same with Gyllenhaal here.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

 

PixelsPIXELS

“PIXELS is bad enough to make you hate the things you love, and watching it made me want to take a blowtorch to every scrap of video game memorabilia in my home.” – Bob Chipman, Movie Bob

“Extremely talented actors like Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Brian Cox and Jane Krakowski are wasted on two-dimensional roles that no amount of talent can fill with humor and heart.” – Michael Cox, Edge Boston

“It’s nowhere near as good as his early work, but PIXELS is a vast improvement over the number of failed movies that he’s put out over the past several years.” – Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

“It’s a worthwhile one for teenagers, but adult viewers might feel they are looking at situations and revelations that have long since receded in the rear view mirror.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

 

the-tribeTHE TRIBE

“…a film of eerie silence and cool, unblinking composure. ” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“…an unfaltering look at studying the human brain’s capacity to survive at all costs.” – Sam Cohen, Under the Gun Review

“Slaboshpytskyi has made a movie that’s enhanced by its setting and sub-culture in ways that are organic rather than gimmicky (assuming you foolishly consider sign language a “gimmick”).” – Andy Crump, Cinematic Essential

 

DO I SOUND GAY still 14DO I SOUND GAY?

“Mixed and mingled with the celebs are chats with old school friends and relatives. The sum total is amusing, but also unquestionably engaging.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“If the answer to the film’s titular query bothers you, even today, well, then you’ve got some work to do, don’t you?” – Andy Crump, Birth.Movies.Death.

 

Hippocrates-StillHIPPOCRATES: DIARY OF A FRENCH DOCTOR

“The moral and ethical quandaries outlined here are stark and, if a little too cleanly drawn, are nonetheless reflective of the realities medical professionals face. ” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
