BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 2/3/2023

BLOOD

“What do you call a vampire movie with no teeth? Blood.” – David Riedel, Chicago Reader

 

 

SHE IS LOVE

“The romantic sparks need to fly between Patricia and Idris, whether comically or dramatically, but they are utterly bland characters. Not only is it hard to see why they would want to get back together, it’s not clear whatever attracted them to each other in the first place.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 12/23/2022

BABYLON

Babylon features the best opening of the year.” – Duane Miller, Cinemania World Podcast

 

“Few contemporary Hollywood films propel themselves with this sort of manic energy, and fewer still are permitted to be this raunchy on such a hefty studio budget.” – Oscar Goff, Boston Hassle

 

TRUMPISM & THE AMERICAN JEWISH COMMUNITY

Filmmaker Charlie Spickler set out to explore the rise in anti-Jewish bigotry in the Age of Trump, and the result – Trumpism & The American Jewish Community – is a thoughtful and provocative film that provides context for how former President Trump, in effect, gave permission for such transgressive behavior to re-emerge in public.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

PUSS IN BOOTS: THE LAST WISH

Puss In Boots: The Last Wish is a huge disappointment. The lure of a franchise is that it’s easier to market a known commodity. That works for donuts and hamburgers, not so much for creative storytelling.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

THE WHALE

“Brendan Fraser gives the performances of a lifetime in The Whale.” – Duane Miller, Cinemania World Podcast

“I’m happy for Brendan Fraser, and I’m thrilled that he’s emerged from his exile a stronger actor than ever. I just wish his return came in the form of a film I could recommend anyone go see.” – Oscar Goff, Boston Hassle
