BIRDS OF PREY
“BIRDS OF PREY may not turn out to be the worst film of the year, but it is the nadir thus far.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
“If you’re just going to see this for its mature rating, its feminist message, or maybe some of the characters, there’s a small possibility that you may be satisfied with what you get out of BIRDS OF PREY. If you require even a little bit more than that, you’ll likely regret sitting down and giving this soulless piece of cinema a chance.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
“THE ASSISTANT understands well how men manipulate levers of power to exploit their subordinates while buying their secrecy — or if not “buy,” then certainly “compel.” – Andy Crump, Mic.com
THE RHYTHM SECTION
“Lively might have been hoping this was the launch of a franchise, but her opaque performance keeps us at a distance.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
“While I mostly liked the structure of THE GENTLEMEN, I also think that it may have hurt the film as well.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
“It’s fast, it’s funny, it’s violent, and has more twists than a plate of spaghetti.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
COLOR OUT OF SPACE
“COLOR OUT OF SPACE feels shaggy at the edges but so rich within them that the flaws of the DIY aesthetic matter less than the merits of Stanley’s perspective.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
BAD BOYS FOR LIFE
“Smith, at 51, and Lawrence, 54, aren’t exactly senior citizens, but they both seem past their sell-by date for this kind of movie.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
“I don’t think you can have a bad time watching BAD BOYS FOR LIFE.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
“Imagine being the biggest household name in the biggest franchise on the planet, finally reaching the end of a contract that made you more money than you can dream of, and then deciding to make DOLITTLE.” – Greg Vellante, EDGE Media Network
“This film is an open discussion brought to life through cinema. And the genius of LES MISÉRABLES is that the discussion continues long after the screen goes black, as its final image stays seared into the screen and your mind alike.” – Greg Vellante, EDGE Media Network
