CINDERELLA

“While not a musical retelling (which might disappoint some Disneyphiles), it’s nevertheless a worthy tribute to the classic.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“…this version of CINDERELLA has no teeth.” – David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter

“…Branagh is smart enough to know that you don’t mess with a time-honored yarn without good reason.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“Disney films can be accused of all sorts of ills, but with CINDERELLA, they have proven that they are capable of producing a boring film that somehow has no magic in it.” – Deidre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“Little girls–of all ages–will have a great time…” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

maxresdefault (5)RUN ALL NIGHT

“There’s a constant push-pull here between the violence and the regretful tone.” – Jake Mulligan, Edge Boston

“RUN ALL NIGHT will be lucky if it runs all week. This one’s dead on arrival.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“RUN ALL NIGHT’s constant despondency never gets uplifted by anything worthy of an ooh or ahh.” – Sam Cohen, Sumo Skinny

“Because of it being what it is, RUN ALL NIGHT can definitely be viewed negatively in the eyes of many of us.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

’71’71

“Don’t consider this as a political film — consider it “The Warriors,” remade as historical fiction.” – Jake Mulligan, Edge Boston

“Although it it doesn’t turn out to be the kind of movie one may think it’s going to be, 71 is still a healthy slice of engaging cinema.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“(Director Yann) Demange is careful to keep the action in the movie as real and shocking as possible. The result is deeply disturbing.” - John Black, Boston Event Guide

 

DeliMan-Gallery_05_{95b52bdf-2470-e411-bad0-d4ae527c3b65}_lgDELI MAN

“There are two things you will hear at the end of Deli Man: Audiences applauding and stomachs growling.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

 

wreckingcrew.spectorherodateTHE WRECKING CREW

“If nothing else, watching The Wrecking  Crew is a musical education that everybody with a stereo and memories of the songs these guys played on will appreciate.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“It may indeed be a “home movie,” but THE WRECKING CREW is awfully hard not to like.” – Sean Burns, Movie Mezzanine
