BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 3/1/2024

DUNE: PART TWO

“I trust the future of this universe is in good hands.” Byron McNeal, On The Reel On Tumblr

“Dune Part Two is a masterclass in filmmaking.” Duane Miller, Cinemania World Podcast

“If he can pull off this planned trilogy, the “Dune” films will join Metropolis (1927), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), and Blade Runner (1982) as among the most significant achievements in science fiction cinema and, indeed, in all film.” Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“…it’s absolutely an amazing film, an incredible adaptation of the novel, and one of the best science fiction movies ever made.” Rodney Brown, Nerd Caliber

“I found Dune: Part Two to be thoroughly enjoyable. Those who know more about its previous works and its general history will probably love it even more than I did.” Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

TRUST

“In the end, this is how people get on with their lives even after events over which they have no control.” Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

 

BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 2/23/2024

LIE WITH ME

“A psychological and emotional thriller of sorts, Lie with Me puts its characters (and its audience) through a wringer and keeps us guessing from scene to scene.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network

 

HISTORY OF EVIL

“There’s nothing inherently wrong with mixing a polemic with horrific elements. Yet by turning this into a haunted house story, the film’s message becomes muddled if not going entirely off-track.” Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

THE BAD SHEPHERD

“There’s a big twist to the story, which ruins everything. It’s not just that the twist comes out of nowhere; it adds nothing but the twist to a story that was doing fine without it.John Black, Cinekong

 

BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 2/9/2024

HOW TO HAVE SEX

“Their holiday goals are simple: get wasted, get laid, repeat. Unfortunately for viewers, what’s exciting to their underage imagination is, for the most part, boring as hell to watch.”John Black, Cinekong

 

SUNCOAST

Suncoast is one from the heart for writer/director Chinn. It may prove a bit more ragged for those watching it from the outside.” Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

RESTORE POINT

Restore Point is a crackerjack techno-thriller from the Czech Republic that can more than hold its own with any offerings from Hollywood.” Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

MOLLI AND MAX IN THE FUTURE

“The best way to describe this combination romantic comedy and science fiction film is to imagine that writer/director Michael Lukk Litwak put When Harry Met Sally and The Fifth Element into a blender and set it on puree.” Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

OUT OF DARKNESS

“So, with all of those positives, why am I not singing the praises of this movie? Basically, it comes down to poor story choices.” Rodney Brown, Nerd Caliber

 

 

THE TASTE OF THINGS

The Taste of Things is a ravishing feast of food and romance, appetite and longing, life and death, love and loss.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices
