BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP 11/8

THOR: THE DARK WORLDTHOR2

“The biggest leap yet into the silly, nutty, crazy, cosmic side of the Marvel Universe; and it’s hard not to get a contact high from how deliriously in love it is with the Jack Kirby-inspired scifi/fantasy/Ancient Aliens mash-up that is it’s world.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

“It’s more about feeding the franchise than anything else.” – Daniel Kimmel, Sci-fi Movie Hype

“Crashes and burns under the weight of its obligations to the series, packing in too many characters, too many plot points, and far too many action scenes pitched toward the sensibilities of eight-year-old boys.” – Jake Mulligan, EDGE

“I think this entry is a slight improvement from the first. At least they dropped the Dutch angles.”- Monica Castillo, Cinema Fix

“If Marvel is going to continue making movies about Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, maybe they should keep them down to Earth.” – Sean Burns, Technology Tell

 

DALLAS BUYERS CLUBEXCLUSIVE: Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto film scenes together for The Dallas Buyers Club in New Orleans.

“Yes, this subject was covered in much greater depth in last year’s essential documentary HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE — and of course, when Hollywood told the story, they had to pick the time it happened to a straight guy — but DALLAS BUYERS CLUB still knows how to work a crowd.” – Sean Burns, Philadelphia City Paper
