THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS

“…with all of the action and characters getting a chance to shine, we get something that’s all over the place while still having the type of form that’s easy to follow.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“If a film is directly referencing John Woo’s HARD BOILED and I’m not having a good time watching it, something is seriously wrong.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“If you are a fan of this franchise, you’ll get your money’s worth. For me, I’ll just say ‘meh.’” – Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“You’re always aware THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS is a mercenary product that has no real reason for being except to make more money and more FURIOUS movies, collecting characters and co-stars like a lint-roller while putting them into increasingly absurd and strangely weightless vehicular cataclysms.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

 

Anne-Hathaway-ColossalCOLOSSAL

“…COLOSSAL is a failure in pretty much every way imaginable.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“For all of the monster movies film-goers have seen over the 100 years of cinema, the ones that tend to hit the hardest are those that recognize and exploit the inner demons within ourselves which come alive incarnate.” – Allyson Johnson, The Young Folks

 

Brody-AMasterfulEmilyDickinsonMovie2-1200A QUIET PASSION

“[Terence] Davies seems to determined to make a film that’s as prickly and as smart as its main character.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
