BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 06/29/2018

Benicio Del ToroSICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO

“It’s odious in a way that it feeds into the fear and hate being invoked by our current political leaders.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

la-1530059380-i4hxye4qoi-snap-imageUNCLE DREW

“UNCLE DREW knows just what it is, and delivers to its intended audience exactly what they want.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“UNCLE DREW will never be mistaken for a masterpiece but as far as branded content goes it’s sunny and good-natured enough to get by.” – Sean Burns, North Shore Movies

“UNCLE CREW serves its purpose and works better than I figured it would.” - Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

 

leave-no-trace-reviewLEAVE NO TRACE

“Anchored by immensely strong performances from Foster and McKenzie, LEAVE NO TRACE is a wunderkind of emotional complexity.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

 

 

 

BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP 6/22/2018

JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOMfallenkingdom

“The number of times I slapped my forehead during this film is equivalent to the number of times I sighed and glanced at my watch during Colin Trevorrow’s 2015 effort. For this alone, “JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM” is the superior film.” – Greg Vellante, EDGE

“We get way too much of the stuff no one came to see to fill the time up.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Credit where due to FALLEN KINGDOM – it at least finally feels like they’ve left the story in a place they can’t take back.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“It raises some interesting questions, all the while providing the requisite thrills from volcanoes, runaway dinosaurs, and duplicitous humans.” – Daniel Kimmel, NorthShoreMovies

“It’s an idiotic plan that nobody in the writing process ever quite cracked how to justify.” – Sean Burns, WBUR

 

damselDAMSEL

“A ”men on a mission” film devoid of true men or a true mission, and it deploys wit and slapstick to put masculinity on trial.” – Andrew Crump, TheWeek

 

 

THE ENDLESSendless

“Moorhead and Benson show how sustained paranoia and foreboding can keep an audience hooked as effectively as special effects.” – Andrew Crump, Paste Magazine

BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 06/15/2018

thumbnail_27698INCREDIBLES 2

“Part of the problem is that in the years since THE INCREDIBLES we’ve been inundated with superhero movies. It’s a film that feels like we’ve already seen it – several times.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“I’m sure most people who see INCREDIBLES 2 will be happy with what they get in some form or another.” – Jaskee Hickman. Cinematic Essential

“The whole thing just feels kind of airless and uninspired – which is just… shocking, considering the pedigree.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

 

maxresdefault (2)TAG

“When you take everything into account, you’re able to see how and why TAG works as well as it does.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“TAG manages to strike the tenuous balance between humor and heart.” – Deidre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“The style is surprising, but the film as a whole is an abundant delight.” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture

 

 

Superfly-Movie-Remake-Trailer-2018SUPERFLY

“A worthy update to a film more contemporarily known for its soundtrack, SUPERFLY is fun and fluffy, just like Priest’s impressive coif.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest
