BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP 8/23

THE WORLD’S ENDWORLDS END

“THE WORLD’S END is the strangest buddy reunion movie you’re likely to see. It is a hilarious and refreshing comedy for summer’s end.” - Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“I’ve been tempted to call Wright the most exciting filmmaker of his generation; THE WORLD’S END bolsters my suspicions.” - Jake Mulligan, EDGE

“If this really is the end of a particular ‘cycle’ for these guys, I can’t wait to see what Act II is.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

“Watching him make a fool of himself feels exhausting, a quality that speaks to Pegg’s credit as a performer, and his endless arsenal of seemingly improvised speeches wears out everyone’s patience for him with breathtaking alacrity.”- Andrew Crump, A Constant Visual Feast

“If you’ve seen the trailer, you know the lads’ hometown has been taken over by robots. One of the recurring gags is that the homogenization of marketing, advertising, and branding has made it easy for the robots to slip in undetected.”- David Riedel, Raw Denim

MORTAL INSTRUMENTSTHE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES

“Yet for all that familiarity, the story is told with style and some wit, although there are moments that might make you roll your eyes.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

YOU’RE NEXTYOURE NEXT

“Manages to be refreshingly original – and all without relying on contrivance and artifice.” – Andrew Crump, Go-See-Talk

“It’s not for the squeamish. Fortunately, it wasn’t made by or for idiots either.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“The only thing more shocking than the gore and the anything-goes body count is how sharp and well-written the screenplay is.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

 

Ain't Them Bodies SaintsAIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS

“Preaching from the Terrence Malick-is-God shrine of the cinema history chapel, Lowery tries on so many borrowed techniques that AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS never gets a chance to develop an identity of its own.” – Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly
