BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 09/26/2014


THE EQUALIZER
1194427-equalizer

THE EQUALIZER contains the mature rated kind of violence that one would hope to see in a modern-day action movie that isn’t restricted by the all too common PG-13 rating.” – Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

 

 

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESSsimon-pegg-hector_3006210b

“Is it just class envy that makes Stiller’s thrill-seeking expeditions in WALTER MITTY and Julia Roberts‘ hedonistic adventures in EAT PRAY LOVE such a dependable trigger for instinctive eye-rolling? Hector doesn’t make it any easier to like him when his midlife crisis takes the form of extreme wanderlust and he books flights to Asia, then Africa, then America.” – Inkoo Kang, The Wrap

“…despite the fact that the premise of the movie is endearing enough, and Simon Pegg, who I’ve adored since his breakout role as the title character in Edgar Wright’s millennial cult-hit SHAUN OF THE DEAD, stars as the title character of the film, the execution of HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS is about as elegant as watching a car drive off of a cliff.” – Charlie Nash, Edge Boston

“Too much formulaic watering down keeps HECTOR from self-actualizing its own narrative.” – Monica Castillo, Movie Mezzanine

 

ALL-IS-BY-MY-SIDE-clipJIMI: ALL IS BY MY SIDE

“If you are a fan of movies that are so bad they’re good, then get ready to watch the Mommie Dearest of rock movies.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

 

 

GOOD PEOPLEgood-people-movie-still

“GOOD PEOPLE is, in short, a bad movie, but that’s not its cardinal sin. Bad movies, after all, can offer a few laughs or the occasional cinematic innovation. Far worse than being a run-of-the-mill misfire, this movie takes the rare distinction of being a total waste of time.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
