BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 04/29/2016

MD-06487.CR2MOTHER’S DAY

“Audiences who like a shred of cohesive story telling or characterization, or even a chuckle during a supposed comedy, should stay very far away.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“The film is harmless, yes, but also irrelevant and insignificant, even when it tries to toss in the occasional social comment.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

 


chicago-jewish-film-festival-dough-movie-700x600DOUGH

“Questions aside as to the suitability of such secular, adult treats when it comes to religious communities and children, the film rattles along deftly, tracing its obvious story arcs with verve and humor.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“DOUGH is the very definition of “bang for your buck,” assuming that hodgepodge is your thing.” - Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

 


watch-the-first-trailer-for-papa-hemingway-in-cuba-001PAPA: HEMINGWAY IN CUBA

“…when you get down to it, the movie has a hollow core puffed by little more than hot air.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

 

 

BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 04/22/2016

huntsman-winters-war-trailerTHE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR

“The story may not be deep, but it remains visually arresting….” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR is a disheveled heap of scenes with vague relation to one another more than it is an actual, whole movie.” – Andy Crump, A Constant Visual Feast

“…THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR is indicative of a disease running rampant in theaters today.” – Sam Cohen, Under the Gun Review

 

 

thumbnail_23889SING STREET

“SING STREET is endlessly charming, a truly uplifting gem, but it earns its charms and uplift through the desperation of failure.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

 

 

elvis-nixon-kevin-spaceyELVIS & NIXON

“For all these failings, comedy remains the film’s oeuvre and it is a pretty funny film.” – Kilian Melly, Edge Boston

“…a small comic gem in which two twentieth-century icons get to confront each other and, possibly, learn something about themselves.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
