2b5c1bc6609fda97703223c1d5888cd5THE 33

“It’s hard not to lose interest – perhaps even laugh – at some of the authentic blunders director Patricia Riggen (GIRL IN PROGRESS) made in casting.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“THE 33 is too wrapped up in its theatricality to maintain a sense of authenticity.” – Andy Crump, Movie Mezzanine

“It sounds strange, but THE 33 is the feel-good mining disaster of the movie of the year.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Jolie Pitt takes a lot of big swings and quite a few of them don’t connect, but the film is exciting to watch because it comes from someplace daring and real.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

BY THE SEA is a movie that everyone on the planet should skip.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Jolie-Pitt’s screenplay leaves much to be desired as its characters languish under the coastal sun.” – Monica Castillo, International Business Times

 

love-the-coopersLOVE THE COOPERS

“Watching LOVE THE COOPERS will leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy in the same way that looking at those poorly photographed tables of obviously fake food will leave you feeling hungry.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“…the most grotesque Christmas film I’ve seen in ages, a lump of coal that not even the naughtiest of children deserve to find in their metaphorical stockings.” – Charlie Nash, Edge Boston

“Competently directed by Scott Mann, HEIST isn’t bad for a brazenly derivative, time-killing knock-off.” – Sean Burns, Movie Mezzanine
