BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP 4/15/2016

THE JUNGLE BOOKJUNGLEBOOK

“It’s almost like a direct retort to all of the other dire pieces of big budget garbage people have to sit through every weekend.” – Sam Cohen, Under The Gun

“Favreau turns out to be the ideal director for this material as he’s used to dealing with special effects movies like the IRON MAN series, while presenting the characters as something more that just tricks for the camera.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Feels so instantaneously classic and modern that to describe its appeal is somewhat difficult to accurately nail on the head.” – Greg Vellante, Forces of Geek

 

CRIMINALCRIMINAL

“Neither smart nor exciting, but it does not try to be either. In that regard, it is a success, but were the bar set even slightly higher it would be a complete miss.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

HARDCORE HENRY

“…the film is pure fun enlivened by — rather than dominated by — inventive chaos.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“Luckily though, the movie is committed to its own crazed insanity that it actually becomes kind of admirable.” – Sam Cohen, Under the Gun Review

“The most interesting part of HARDCORE HENRY is the level of violence that’s being displayed.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“HARDCORE HENRY just wants to dazzle us with conceit, and your mileage will vary based on your capacity for tolerating Naishuller’s gimmickry.” – Andy Crump, A Constant Visual Feast

 

 

bossTHE BOSS

“…an atonal mess, with a few respectable laughs mixed in.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

 

 

MTM3NzMzMjY0MjI2OTg1NjMxTHE INVITATION

“THE INVITATION’s constructed world is as constricting as its closed-door setting. Maybe that’s why nobody thought to leave.” – Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston

“We feel like we’re intruding on the melancholic privacies of Kusama’s characters, and yet she locks the doors and keeps us trapped inside with them.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

 

 

april-720x389APRIL AND THE EXTRAORDINARY WORLD

“The true magic to APRIL AND THE EXTRAORDINARY WORLD is that it has an endgame worthy of its ambition.” – Norm Schrager, Film Racket

“…a beautiful film that reminds us of the aesthetic value of traditional animation and the necessity of human ingenuity, all without treating its audience like idiots. ” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
