Reviews: Bushwick (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered
    • Excerpt: Bushwick sets New York City ablaze but never tells us why, leaving viewers with nothing but street violence and an empty hopelessness.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: Bushwick strives to capitalize on the adrenaline rush aesthetic of a videogame, masking its numerous cuts with distracting close-ups and pans to transport us from one sequence to the next as though we’ve never left. It’s an admirable attempt, but one that doesn’t wholly work as far as adding anything to what’s already a pretty pulse-pounding scenario.
  • Kristy Puchko @ Pajiba.com
    • Excerpt: Who needs heroes when you have pseudo-intellectual hipster bullshit?
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal
    • Excerpt: Pode ser muito bonito dar as mãos e enfrentar fantasmas gigantes ou ameaças extraterrestres, mas se aparecer um batalhão de homens treinados e armados, quantos se vão expor para defender a sua pátria, a sua cidade e o seu bairro? Esta é a visão nua e crua do que sucederia e não é bonito de se ver.
  • [New] | Michael Reuben @ Blu-ray.com
    • Excerpt: The heavily armed force that storms into a Brooklyn neighborhood expecting minimal opposition finds the opposite. As Brooklyn becomes Beirut (or Sarajevo or Basra), the film deploys an impressive combination of practical and digital effects to transform a familiar American landscape into a war zone.

Reviews: Tragedy Girls (2017)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered
    • Excerpt: Tragedy Girls is a wicked, womanly triumph. Hearts and smiley faces float from smartphones not only to reflect social media interactions, but to mirror our own approval of Tyler MacIntyre’s suburban gorefest.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Biting, wicked, and deceptively earnest.
  • Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
    • Excerpt: The whole becomes a wide-open venue for heightened caricatures and homage with enough Valley Girl snark and reality-TV charisma to let a few not-so spectacular death scene effects complement the overall irreverent tone.
  • Kristy Puchko @ CBR.com
    • Excerpt: Behold: the new class of bad girls have arrived, and they’re badass.
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal
    • Excerpt: Felizmente as falhas no terror perdoam-se por ser uma comédia, mas isso significa que o filme podia ter feito um belo isco para vender bilhetes aos leitores de Twitter, ao mesmo tempo que geria as referências de terror (muito bem aplicadas) para manter os fãs do gore interessados.
  • James Roberts @ Glide Magazine
    • Excerpt: Mean Girls, basically, if Regina George was into dismemberment instead of wearing pink on Wednesdays.
