BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 08/10/2018

blackkklansman.0BLACKKKLANSMAN

“…a clarion wake-up call the likes of which haven’t been heard since the climactic moments of [Spike] Lee’s SCHOOL DAZE three decades ago.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“Spike Lee’s latest joint is well acted, well produced, and worth seeing – but make no mistake: It’s out to harsh your buzz.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“Spike Lee has made a lot of great films but never one that has felt so urgent and crucial to the current moment. Normally I flinch when people call movies “necessary,” but this one may very well be.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“A film as brazenly, bluntly, unapologetically entertaining as BLACKKKLANSMAN could only be made by a filmmaker as brazen, blunt, and unapologetic as Lee…” – Andy Crump, The Week

 

hero_Meg-2018-2THE MEG

“Humor is the greatest strength of this script, and I found myself laughing uncontrollably at various scenes, from well-placed jokes to the many pitiful schmucks who became chum.” – Byron McNeal, Nerd Caliber

“…providing plenty of thrills even if none of the characters are likely to stick in your memory.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

Tone-Bell-and-Nina-Dobrev-Dog-DaysDOG DAYS

“DOG DAYS is a pointless exercise in attempting to create human emotions and romance. The dogs may be cute, but that isn’t nearly enough to make this worth anyone’s time or attention.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

 

 

puzzlePUZZLE

“PUZZLE isn’t perfect and doesn’t feel fresh or necessary, but it’s a comfortable way to spend some time exploring the world through a character’s expanding view of it.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest
