BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 07/27/2018

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT

“GHOST PROTOCOL has been the definitive feature film that’s been able to deliver at that level more than any other, but that’s changed with FALLOUT forcing its way into the discussion.” - Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“You likely already know how the plot will end, but that’s not the point of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT. You watch it for the action and for Tom Cruise, and the movie delivers on both fronts.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“All kidding aside, I would say this franchise has definitely found its bearings alongside the likes of the FAST AND FURIOUS series when it comes to action.” – Byron McNeal, Nerd Caliber

 

 

enelseptimodiastill3_-_h_2017EN EL SÉPTIMO DÍA

“In EN EL SÉPTIMO DÍA we meet the unsung backbone of New York City’s service industry. But of course this gentle, unassuming film would never come out and say it that way.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

 

BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 07/20/2018

maxresdefault (3)MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN

“…that rarest of sequels: it surpasses the original.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

 

download (1)EIGHTH GRADE

“EIGHTH GRADE wouldn’t be the success it is without the perfect lead, and [Elsie] Fisher is perfect in her general physical demeanor and line delivery.” – Allyson Johnson, Cambridge Day

“The film reflects arguably the worst stretch of growing up in America’s education system, but it’s rarely if ever ugly. Instead, it’s compassionate, radiating retroactive kindness for the children we all were to soothe the adults we are now.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“[It] won’t be considered a standout in the career of the director or the actor, but it’s not an embarrassment either.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

 

download (3)DON’T WORRY, HE WON’T GET FAR ON FOOT

“This is Van Sant’s project, and his fans will rejoice, but it’s Phoenix who’s the star.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“It’s got an impish sense of humor befitting [John] Callahan’s sickly funny cartoons, which sometimes spring to life in crudely animated interludes.” - Sean Burns, The ARTery
