THE INTERN

“THE INTERN is actually quite sweet, and if you are able somehow to get swept up in its sappiness you will like it.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“All of the heartwarming and humorous aspects that make THE INTERN so entertaining though, are the same ones that distract you from issues with its core story.” – Evan Crean, Star Pulse

“Although there is only one screenwriting credit listed … you get the feeling watching it that the film was actually written, maybe crafted is a better word, by committee.” - John Black, Boston Event Guide

 

stonewall-4STONEWALL

“Describing STONEWALL as merely a crummy biopic would be like describing Pasolini’s SALO as a rom-com.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“The indictment of Emmerich’s approach is less that he’s opted to ”print the legend” and more that he’s not printing the right legend.” – Bob Chipman, Movie Bob

 

977452_044THE GREEN INFERNO

“If you’re one of those people who thinks they can handle this type of stuff, THE GREEN INFERNO is a flick that you should surely check out.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

 

6053581_review-a-brilliant-young-mind-starring_af0e7701_mA BRILLIANT YOUNG MIND

“…a mélange of familiar tropes and character types that feel as carefully calibrated as a page of equations.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

 

 

Pawn01PAWN SACRIFICE

“PAWN SACRIFICE is a solid feature that doesn’t have the quality necessary to make it stand out and grab the attention of the public.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

 

goodnight_mommy_photoGOODNIGHT MOMMY

“This is a rare feature that has a unique style even though the premise has been done before in a couple of other movies over the years.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
