Don’t let the title fool you. Sleeping With Other People isn’t simply a romantic comedy about two people ignoring physical attraction in an effort to keep things platonic. Instead, writer/director Leslye Headland has crafted a brutally honest look at dating and relationships when emotionally dysfunctional people are involved. Continue reading

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

“I don’t know. Maybe we were doomed from the beginning. I mean, it’s not like dad was Mr. Sunshine. Sometimes I think all our problems came directly from him. But a lot of the good stuff did too. Remember what he always called us? The Gruesome Twosome. He told us to stick together. No matter what. God, what the hell happened to us?”  Continue reading

Over the summer of 2004, 17/18 year old Matt wrote 21 movie reviews and posted them on IMDb. Recently, I dug up these reviews and decided to revisit each movie and evaluate how my tastes have changed over the last decade.

So for each of these posts, I will write a present-day review and then copy/paste the original review after. Then I’ll compare the two and give a summary at the end.

Next week, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will be released. Much like what I did with X-Men: Days of Future Past, I decided I would prepare for Dawn by reviewing every movie in the Apes franchise thus far. Unlike X-Men, however, Planet of the Apes is a franchise I’ve never seen before. At all. So I think it’ll be interesting to see how my feelings toward these movies and this franchise evolves throughout my viewing.
