Reviews: Green Room (2016)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: [New – 6/5/15] | Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian] Excerpt: Jeremy Saulnier, che qui aveva presentato il piu’ compatto Blue Ruin, sembra divertirsi a mettere in scena la mattanza. Il suo e’ cinema di genere, senza troppe pretese, sapido e beffardo come l’ultima battuta tra i due protagonisti [New – 9/24/15] | Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema [New – 10/22/15] | Rob Daniel @ Electric Shadows Excerpt: A first class exercise in teeth-grinding suspense [New – 2/25/16] | Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog Excerpt: Green with envy. […]

Reviews: Mountains May Depart (2016)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: [New – 2/25/16] | Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian] Excerpt: Il film e’ appiccicoso e francamente reazionario nella sua descrizione dei rapporti tra i personaggi. Josh Brunsting @ The CriterionCast Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice Excerpt: An ambitious film about three critical times in the life of a Chinese woman, mirroring changes in modern China. Hugo Gomes @ Cinematograficamente Falando … [Portuguese] Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film Donald Jay Levit @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Reviews: The Witch (2016)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: [New – 2/25/16] | Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire Excerpt: Eggers patiently threads his needle with themes of faith, family, and fear, and sews it up into a mélange of unsettling mood and unshakable images; it’s a movie that drifts along, haunting yet manageable, and then it clobbers you. Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews Excerpt: Writer/director Robert Eggers…has made a masterpiece right out of the gate. This production is absolute perfection in every regard, from its well researched screenplay and art direction to its great ensemble cast and unnerving score […]

Reviews: 88th Oscars: Nominated Shorts (2016)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews [New – 2/11/16] | (Animated) Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews Excerpt: The animated segment is often my favorite of the three shorts programs because they illicit the most diverse array of feelings – ranging from joy to sadness, sometimes within the same vignette. [New – 2/11/16] | (Documentary) Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews Excerpt: If you do decide to see these one after another, be sure to go with a loved one so you can hug each other after it’s all over. […]

Reviews: The Boy (2016)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com Excerpt: Stranger and intense, delving into the paranormal and leaving the door ajar for a sequel… Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant Excerpt: The Boy is a very slow burn, one that successfully works to the narrative at hand, but isn’t particularly enjoyable to watch. Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic Excerpt: Up until a bonkers 11th-hour plot twist, “The Boy” is plenty dim and so very dull, jumpy dream sequences and smart-as-a-peach character decisions becoming its fallbacks. Daniel Lackey @ […]

Reviews: The Choice (2016)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members: Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies Excerpt: Spare me. Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie Excerpt: The 11th film adapted from a Nicholas Sparks novel and if you’ve seen one, then there is a good chance you know everything about this movie. I suppose it’s fine for date night, but that only applies to a date who wants nothing to do with post-film conversation about deeper themes and messages. You’ll fine none of those here. Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic Excerpt: It’s neither good nor bad, just by-the-numbers bait […]
