BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP 5/22/2015

TOMORROWLANDtomorowland

“Ugh.” – Killian Melloy, EDGE Boston

“To say that TOMORROWLAND is a disappointment isn’t really fair. If this reviewer was eight years old, it would seem like one of the best movies ever.” – Daniel Kimmel, NorthShoreMovies

“A deeply personal blockbuster – it’s a $190 million summer tentpole named after a Disney theme park attraction, but it comes from someplace real.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“Straddling many ideas and communicating so little.” – Monica Castillo, International Business Times

“Brad Bird’s newest has so many worldviews and agendas battling each other in the narrative — some half-baked and some well fleshed out — that the intriguing inspiration behind the concept of TOMORROWLAND gets sunk under instances of preachy blathering.” – Sam Cohen, Under The Gun

“A half-baked lecture in search of a movie to occupy.” – Bob Chipman, MovieBob

 

POLTERGEIST (2015)poltergeist

“POLTERGEIST isn’t able to provide an honest source of entertainment for audiences in search of some summertime frights.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…if the only reason you’re remaking a movie is simply because you own the rights, it’s probably not worth doing.” – Daniel Kimmel, NorthShoreMovies
