BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 08/27/2021

Nathalie Boltt sits in the dark in the movie Demonic looking very creepyDEMONIC

“There’s no great pleasure in stating that DEMONIC is disappointing.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

Three nuns stand side by side pointing their guns at the camera in the movie HabitHABIT

“Scenes like Mads seductively taking communion from a priest who looks more like a model in a GQ layout, seem to be there primarily to shock the squares and titillate those who imagine it’s daring and out-there.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

A woman and a man sit in a dark movie theater watching a movie and eating popcorn in the film The Last MatineeTHE LAST MATINEE

“If you’re not a fan of the genre, this won’t change your mind, but if you are, you’ll find nothing got lost in the translation (even the misuse of the word “matinee” is in the original).” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

Nora Arnezeder sits on her knees in a bleak landscape in the sci-fi movie The ColonyTHE COLONY

“Without revealing any spoilers, the question the film poses is whether the ends justifies the means…Yet the characters on both sides of this debate are so underwritten–calling them two-dimensional would be a promotion–that it ends up trivializing what’s at stake.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II stands in a hallway wearing dirty clothes and looking creepily at the camera in the movie CandymanCANDYMAN

“CANDYMAN is what might be called an ‘interesting failure.’ It never really comes together, but it’s a seriously intended effort and worth a look.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
