Movie Review: Boyhood (2014)

Boyhood-poster-quad

Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is an ambitious ode to American childhood and an intimate portrait of how time affects on people. Filmed intermittently over 12 years, Linklater enlisted the same group of actors throughout the process. The result is an aesthetic that guides the viewer through the formative years of its main character Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his family.  Continue reading

Movie Review: Stretch (2014)

Stretch, from director Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smokin’ Aces, The A-Team), is a fun action/thriller comedy starring Patrick Wilson. Stretch (Wilson) is a down on his luck aspiring actor/limo driver who suddenly finds himself having to pay his bookie $6000 by midnight. In the hope that he’ll be tipped enough to cover the debt in time, Stretch takes a job chauffeuring an eccentric billionaire (Chris Pine, in an uncredited role) on a crazy, drug-fueled adventure through Los Angeles.

The plot has a few more moving parts than that but Stretch is essentially about its title character being thrust into a surreal situation filled with silly danger and over the top characters. It works well thanks to Wilson’s acting and an entertaining script. Continue reading

And it wasn’t until this year that industry hacks started talking about the film, the latest Macabre release, Poker Night. The film bypassed a cinema release and went straight to DVD and Blu-ray. Admittedly, that’s not particularly strange for an indie film, however the stellar cast that the film boasts make you wonder whether it didn’t get the exposure it maybe should have. Continue reading
