BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 04/04/2014

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIERla_ca_0102_Captain_America

“For those invested in the Marvel superheroes, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER ranks high up there. It’s not THE AVENGERS or IRON MAN, but it’s better than most of the rest of them.” – Daniel Kimmel, NorthShoreMovies

“136 minutes of badly edited action sequences linked together with an overheated plot and some lukewarm performances.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“A fantastic comic book movie that is sure to entertain the overwhelming majority of its viewers.” – Jaskee Hickman

“Once you take him out of a fanciful WWII era, you can’t not get political with a character who’s named after a country and wears its flag as his uniform.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

“Blows its predecessor out of the water and rivals THE AVENGERS for slam-bang action and thrills. It’s the best Marvel movie thus far.” – David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter

 

UNKNOWNTHE UNKNOWN KNOWN

“But if Rumsfeld twists and spins, Morris seems to lack the energy to pin him down.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE

“Just remember the root of all these conversations is nearly 4,500 dead Americans and more than 500,000 dead Iraqis. File that under ‘known known.’” - David Riedel, San Antonion Current

 

NYMPH()MANIAC VOL IINYMPHOMANIAC2

“Von Trier has made a psychological epic but he’s also made his greatest comedy.” – Jake Mulligan, Movie Mezzanine

“NYMPH()MANIAC VOL II is, mercifully, not as bad as VOL I, but it has its share of problems. The largest remains its rampant misogyny disguising itself as empowerment.” – David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter

“Feels like the work of both an erudite professor you’d like to spend time with and an immature college student you’d like to kick in the balls.” – Norm Schrager, Meet in the Lobby

 

DUNEJODOROWSKY’S DUNE

“”It is the greatest movie that never got made. … At least it is in the opinion of the man who wanted to make it.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide
