“The summer movie we’ve been waiting for: filled with action, exotic locations, and enough plot twists that you simply can’t check your brain at the door.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Prince Tom is on screen, at an operatic scale yet again. None shall sleep.” – Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston

“The way Cruise and Ferguson dispatch baddies clearly stronger than them is balletic, shooting people the way Astaire and Rogers danced: cheek-to-cheek.” – Sam Cohen, Under The Gun

“For a wildly fun, mindless night out at the movies don’t miss MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ROGUE NATION.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

“Not much of a thought in its head but impeccably crafted nonetheless and always delightful to watch.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“If nothing else, “Rogue Nation” has the sense to stick with what the “Mission: Impossible” movies do best.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE

“Proves to be one of the year’s best blockbuster action movies thus far.” – Tim Estiloz, El Mundo Boston

“Clearly falls short of Ghost Protocol, but there is some fun to be had if you can accept the lack of depth that we’re asked to watch.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential



“Instead of relying on sight gags and absurdist humor (there’s an incest gag in the original film, people), Vacation follows a new family versed in more smarm than charm.” – Sam Cohen, Under The Gun

“Nothing in Vacation is spectacular, but you’ll most likely feel satisfied with what’s there after you’ve finished watching it.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“The original is much better. In fact, all four of the original Vacation movies – National Lampoon’s Vacation, European Vacation, Christmas Vacation and even Vegas Vacation – are better.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide



“Directors Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge manage to capture the essence of what makes playing with these colorful plastic bricks so entertaining (some would say addictive) to those who do.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide



“A masterful melodrama that pays loving homage to cinema’s past.” – Charles Nash, EDGE

“…a German movie that is smartly and emotionally written, is beautifully acted, has a camera in the right spot with the right lighting in scene after scene and asks that the audience think for itself instead of leading it around by the dick.” – David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter




“The sight of the filmmaker munching on a sandwich of sugar cubes and spooning up sugar from a shockingly full cup is comical, but also revolting. He makes his point.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE

“Woody is famously averse to taking vacations, but sitting through IRRATIONAL MAN you’ll wish he’d try — just to give us one.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality
