“If you’ve enjoyed the series, this will work, but beyond that it’s hard to see this entry winning new converts.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Most scary movies aren’t really. A lot of people go into them wanting them to be, but we ultimately just want to have a good time. If you can do that, you’ll keep us coming back for more.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“We’ve seen plenty of haunted house movies and plenty creepy doll movies, and plenty of babysitting gone amuck movies, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for one more, so long as it’s done right. ANNABELLE COMES HOME does it right.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“This isn’t a movie in search of a greater meaning. It just needs to be entertaining. But it does both, and better still, it bothers to be creative.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine



“YESTERDAY is a tribute to the Beatles as well as a rich comedy… it’s one of the best movies you’re likely to see this year.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“While some of it is undeniably heavy-handed, much of the film’s philosophy has a tender touch.” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture

“The flat, functional visuals and deliberately artless presentation had me thinking more than once this might be better off as a podcast. Maybe the third Moe Berg movie will finally get it right.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery





“So, after the brilliant and emotional conclusion to TOY STORY 3, was there possibly anything left to be said? As it turns out, there was.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“…in a summer when studios have released almost nothing but underwhelming and underperforming sequels, sandwiched between Disney’s mega-budget remakes of ALADDIN and THE LION KING, the mildly amusing, profoundly unnecessary TOY STORY 4 leaves one starving for something more than just reheated comfort food.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“The amount of love put into this film by its creative team is only trumped by the love that it filled the audience with.” – Byron McNeal, Nerd Caliber

“Was TOY STORY 4 really necessary? No, but we’d be lying a bit if we were resistant towards Disney’s specific brand of nostalgia.” – Sam Cohen, Edge Boston

“If this is the end of the TOY STORY run, it leaves on a positive note.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential




“This is precisely the type of movie you’ll forget you saw, even if you don’t dislike watching it.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“If there’s a reason to see this, it may be to watch Hemsworth continue his emergence as more than beefcake, but a genuinely funny performer.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“This is the first Jarmusch film that feels behind the curve instead of ahead of it.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“What’s increasingly odd about the casual nature of the plot and aesthetic of THE DEAD DON’T DIE is that it, like a zombie, wants to sneak up on you and leave a mark.” – Sam Cohen, Edge Boston

“It is, in every way, a zombie film only [Jim] Jarmusch would make. But defying its own hype, that’s a bug instead of a feature.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine



“Ultimately, SHAFT is much more fun than I thought it was going to be.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“It’s a movie where the action and the comedy are more important than the plot.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

Emma Thompson appears in <i>Late Night</i> by Nisha GanatraLATE NIGHT

“While it might seem formulaic to some extent, the film works because the characters are complex and sharply defined.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies



“In these times especially, “5B” is a reminder of the best of who we are — and why our faith, and the courage of our convictions, matters.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network


THE GANGSTER, THE COP, THE DEVIL is one of the better movies I’ve seen so far in 2019.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
