BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP 7/15/2016

GHOSTBUSTERS2016GHOSTBUSTERS (2016)

“Those naysayers have been undermined by the quality of this reboot, which hopefully will relaunch the series and it’s obvious that the writers here had fun playing up the hatred of those commentators” – John Hanlon, John Hanlon Reviews

“It may be called GHOSTBUSTERS, but the Bill Murray and Harold Ramis comedy that this remake most resembles is the military send-up STRIPES; in as much as both feature two solid acts’ worth of really funny people mining hilarious jokes from training sequences and character interactions that then kind of falls apart when the plot takes over in Act 3.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“There’s no getting around how inadequate Wiig and McCarthy are. The breakout here is “SNL” star McKinnon, who needs co-stars who could keep up with her.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“What makes GHOSTBUSTERS a pleasure to watch is how much these women obviously enjoy working with one another, generously feeding each other straight lines and setups as opposed to other comics who too often compete for attention.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“As a quick guilty pleasure, it’ll do. But unlike the original, it’s easily forgettable.” – Tim Estiloz, El Mundo Boston

“Doesn’t have a ghost of chance of saving this lackluster summer movie season, but it’s a chance to see some of the best comedic actors working today have a little fun while we’re all waiting for SOMETHING of biblical proportions to hit the big screen– before the fall.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

 

INFILTRATORTHE INFILTRATOR

“If only the quality of the film could match the quality of Cranston, who unearths enough underlying emotion from the character to make up for what the script fails to say.” – Allyson Johnson, Cambridge Day

“Bryan Cranston has become a character actor who can command attention in leading roles, and he shows why here.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Overall, a forgettable experience becomes memorable only in its pitfalls.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

 

LIFE, ANIMATED720x405-Life,-Animated

“The intention isn’t to celebrate Disney as a brand, or as a market entity, but to acknowledge the objectively massive role the studio’s output has played in [Owen Suskind's] life.” – Andy Crump, The Playlist
