BIRDS OF PREY15786083839194.0

“BIRDS OF PREY may not turn out to be the worst film of the year, but it is the nadir thus far.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“If you’re just going to see this for its mature rating, its feminist message, or maybe some of the characters, there’s a small possibility that you may be satisfied with what you get out of BIRDS OF PREY. If you require even a little bit more than that, you’ll likely regret sitting down and giving this soulless piece of cinema a chance.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential


THE ASSISTANThero_assistant-movie-review-2020

“THE ASSISTANT understands well how men manipulate levers of power to exploit their subordinates while buying their secrecy — or if not “buy,” then certainly “compel.” – Andy Crump,






“I am 1,000,000% certain that OUR BRAND IS CRISIS would have been better off just being a straight up drama instead of having anything to do with comedy.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“From its clunky title to its clumsy ending, there is just something wrong with director David Gordon Green’s new movie, OUR BRAND IS CRISIS. Actually, there are a lot of things wrong.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“…fictionalized to the point of near-total fabrication, and the tone veers from farcical to bitter to a late-breaking, and unconvincing, attempt at uplift.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston



“ADAM JONES was a stupid title, but BURNT isn’t much better for a film that’s only half-baked at best.” – Greg Vellante, Sound and Picture

“Overall, BURNT is fine at its best and nothing more.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Sure, you loved RATATOUILLE – but wouldn’t you love it more with an abusive, too-cool-for-school douchebag whose talent justifies his every flaw!?” – Bob Chipman, MovieBob



“The film eschews the overtly fantastical for good reason: Hou’s refined, intentional style provides all the necessary enchantment to leave us enraptured.” – Andy Crump, Birth.Movies.Death.

“The filmmaker skips back and forth among these stories telling us a little more each time, but it’s tricky to keep track of who’s who.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices
