BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 01/14/2022

A pink-haired girl stands holding a small creature in the animated film BelleBELLE

“BELLE’s most spellbinding sequences come from inside the virtual world of U. Colorful 3D figures float through a kaleidoscope of colors and towering structures.” – Max Covill, Paste Magazine

“The aesthetics of U, where BELLE spends about half its running time, are staggering. A vast pixelated sea that the ids, egos, and superegos of its hundreds of millions of users all sail upon, U is a dream sold by the science fiction canon and presented in startling detail by Hosada’s animation team. But it’s his screenplay that welds this dream to harsh reality.” – Andy Crump, Inverse

“…BELLE encapsulates Hosada’s finest animation and most emotionally gripping tale. Despite already setting a high bar for himself with BELLE, the filmmaker exceeds expectations through gusto and creative passion that has long marked him as one of the very best in the medium.” – Allyson Johnson, Inverse

 

Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox stand next to each other in the movie Scream 5SCREAM

“Like most critics, I’ve got more than a little Randy Meeks in me, and as such I approached the latest Scream movie, simply called SCREAM*, with all due caution. To all the Randy Meekses reading this, rest assured: the new Scream is not only good, but an honest-to-god SCREAM movie.” – Oscar Goff, Boston Hassle

 

Lilly Krug holds a drill in her hand and smiles deviously in the movie ShatteredSHATTERED

“SHATTERED, one of the first releases of 2022, is well-made trash. If that sounds like a contradiction in terms, hear me out.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
