BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP 11/27/2015

CREEDCREED

“Human-scaled, rambling and idiosyncratic, with emotional payoffs larger than life. I spent most of the running time crying my fucking eyes out.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“CREED defies our expectations of its genre even as it fulfills them. You may not see a better crowd-pleaser this season.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“It’s hokey, it’s predictable and, if you’re a fan, it’s surprisingly engaging. A big reason is that Stallone–often an underrated actor whose good performances are sometimes overlooked–underplays the role. ” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Give Ryan Coogler a moving body and he’ll give you a moment worthy of the ROCKY series.” – Jake Mulligan, DIGBoston

“Reestablishes Michael B. Jordan after the FANTASTIC FOUR debacle.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

GOOD DINOTHE GOOD DINOSAUR

“Stories and characters have always been the backbone of the best Pixar films, and here it’s obvious that this was a script done by committee. Literally.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“If it were not for the utterly beautiful background animation this film would be a complete miss.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“While the film’s willful genre hopping isn’t especially disruptive, it is distracting.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

 

NIGHT BEFORETHE NIGHT BEFORE

“This may not have been the most I’ve guffawed at a film this year, but it’s certainly the hardest.” – Greg Vellante, Sound & Picture

“These are extremely familiar riffs for Rogen, but he happens to still be really good at them.” – Sean Burns, Movie Mezzanine

“This familiar Rogen-style journey did cause me to laugh more than I anticipated.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
