BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 03/04/2022

Megan Fox stands smiling in the movie Big Gold BrickBIG GOLD BRICK

“In short, this is a collection of opaque and mostly unlikable characters whose affairs, sexual and otherwise, generate little interest.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

Peter Dinklage stands in a crowded market in the movie CyranoCYRANO

“The unmemorable songs add nothing. They’re the sort of melodies you forget while you’re listening to them. The combination of Dinklage’s singing and the drab music seriously hobbles the resulting film. – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

Naomi Watts stands looking frustrated at her phone in the movie The Desperate HourTHE DESPERATE HOUR

“It’s a taut original thriller marred solely by a title that will get confused with the twice filmed THE DESPERATE HOURS, with which it has no connection.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez together in a black and white still from the documentary Luci and DesiLUCY AND DESI

“Poehler clearly has an affinity for the comic stars of an earlier era, and getting Burnett and Bette Midler makes this as much a celebration of women in comedy as a family story.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

Christina Wolfe and Leighton Meester stand in a seaside destination smiling and clinking champagne glasses in the movie The Weekend AwayTHE WEEKEND AWAY

“In an era where movies are regularly clocking in at two-and-a-half and even three hours, it’s refreshing to see a fast-paced story with engaging characters doing the job in just 90 minutes.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
