Warm Bodies

“It’s easy to read Levine’s adaptation as a devastatingly funny send-up of the Twilight phenomenon. I was at a Barnes & Noble recently and saw an entire section devoted to ‘teen paranormal romance.’ Warm Bodies is at its funniest when the film is digging into the messy details of just how such romances might work.” – The Improper Bostonian, 01/30/2013

“The filmmaking is always so fussy and exacting, determinedly marching through the director’s chosen thesis statement with no deviations or surprises. Once you know where Amour is going, there’s nothing left but to run out the clock, which I believe might be the point, but it doesn’t make it any easier to watch.” – The Improper Bostonian, 01/16/2013

Les Mis

“If there’s a more poorly directed film this year, I haven’t seen it. Hooper keeps the camera locked into a fisheye view of everybody’s nostrils just to prove they’re really singing, goddamnit. But maybe he should have realized that uncut tracks of Russell Crowe hoarsely flubbing notes are ‘authentic’ in the worst way possible. This is an aesthetic crime.” – The Improper Bostonian, 01/02/2013
