BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP – 7/6/2018

ANT-MAN & THE WASPantmanwasp

“for a story full of small things getting big and big things getting small, the most satisfying thing about “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is its human-scaled sense of proportion.” – Sean Burns, NorthShoreMovies

“With a top-notch cast and exceptionally witty script, this is pure fun.” – Dan Kimmel, NorthShoreMovies

“A fine movie where the faults are glaring but not that damaging.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“It’s a Marvel movie, so you should know by now the villains are a red-herring and the “real” arch-nemeses are the insecurities and personal failings the heroes need to overcome.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

 

first-purgeTHE FIRST PURGE

“It’s RED DAWN for #TheResistance.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“Worthy of the praise bestowed upon other, more critically favored, horror films.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High Def Digest

“Goes exactly where the other Purge movies have dared to go: batshit insane.” – Andy Crump, Paste

“Thanks to storytelling and some pretty solid acting, we’re able to connect with the characters of THE FIRST PURGE the way we should.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

WHO’S WATCHING OLIVER?whose watching oliver

“If you can imagine Woody Allen directing “Psycho,” you have a sense of what this movie is like.” – Dan Kimmel, NorthShoreMovies

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
