BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 07/28/2017

Coldest City, TheATOMIC BLONDE

“Oozing with uber-style and ultra-violence, this espionage action film pretends a morally complicated worldview, which ironically questions the need for an alliance with any nation.” – Michael Cox, Edge Boston

“If you’re only in it for the action, ATOMIC BLONDE could be something that you could find entertaining.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“The first thing that sticks out in this film is its style, with a big blaring capital hot pink neon ‘S.’” – Byron McNeal, Nerd Caliber

“ATOMIC BLONDE isn’t a terrible movie per se, it’s just a painfully forgettable one.” – Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“While there is no doubt discussion to be had about Lorraine breaking the mold-–both the violence and the sex here are very much on her terms––no one should mistake this for anything other than a summer action movie.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

maxresdefault (35)THE EMOJI MOVIE

“To say this feels like the first sign of the Apocalypse does not feel like hyperbole. What’s next? THE MEME MOVIE?” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“You shouldn’t hand out business cards for your side gig as you give candy to trick-or-treaters on Halloween, and you shouldn’t make a movie celebrating the virtues of being who you are if it means paying royalties to Instagram.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

 

 

 

Landline - Still 1LANDLINE

“The film does dig fairly deep into its vault of ’90s throwbacks — wired phones, wall-to-wall carpeting, floppy discs — but it never veers too far into becoming a time capsule parody of itself.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“It’s a real pleasure to watch Slate and newcomer Abby Quinn as bickering sisters brought together by the ordeal, especially since the former is having an affair of her own.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“LANDLINE works as well as just about any drama that you will see in 2017.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“The film falters when it rushes, wrapping everything up in the last 20 minutes of the film.” – Allyson Johnson, Cambridge Day
