PHANTOM THREADscreen-shot-2017-10-23-at-9-03-50-am (1)

“Love is patient, love is kind; love is haunting, and occasionally crazy.” - Andy Crump, The Playlist

“This is a fiendishly funny movie, one that’s extremely self-aware and follows its own internal logic to a conclusion that makes perfect sense while being entirely mad.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“The title alludes to one of the many beautiful things about PHANTOM THREAD: that which we create is alive, never just the sum of its physical parts.” – Sam Cohen, Substream Magazine

“PHANTOM THREAD would have been near the top of my favorite films of 2017 had it not featured such a disappointing ending.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

 

the-commuterTHE COMMUTER

“THE COMMUTER is the type of movie that could have worked wonderfully if they allowed it to be dumber than it actually is.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“It’s a convoluted plot, to be sure, and you just have to go with the flow and not question it.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“This is such a stupid movie, and I had fun with every single second of it.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“…easy, unsubtle, unabashedly masculine action films don’t need nuance as long as they’re this much of a goofy pleasure to watch.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
