BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP 5/29/2015

SAN ANDREASSAN ANDREAS

“A turducken of timeworn tropes.” – Monica Castillo, International Business Times

“I can’t say that San Andreas is a film that’s a complete waste of time for whoever decides to take the time to watch it.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Pure escapist, Summer-blockbuster, roller-coaster ride fun.” – Tim Estiloz, El Mundo Boston

“You can practically see the studio notes being written for the actors in each scene. Talk more about how much you miss a cohesive family here. Do something heroic like jumping from a helicopter here. Kiss here.” - Sam Cohen, Under the Gun Review

 

ALOHAALOHA

“Tries to craft its own myth about a man reopening old wounds and healing them through emotional re-enlightenment. Instead, the film closes with an act focused in on world domination through private satellite launches.” Sam Cohen, Under the Gun Review

“Crowe’s still doubling down on the artifice of his woebegotten ELIZABETHTOWN.” – Sean Burns, Movie Mezzanine

“I was exhilarated by the weird magic of this world and cared about these odd characters even if I didn’t always know what they were talking about.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

 

FELIX AND MEIRAFELIX MEIRA

“The distance prevents the audience from a more satisfying connection. The performances don’t help.” – Norm Schrager, Meet In The Lobby
