Movie Review: Boyhood (2014)

BOYHOOD BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJULY 20, 2014 Never has a director been more ambitious than Richard Linklater, whose latest feature “Boyhood” spans over twelve years, both in production and time within the narrative. Using the same actors throughout the film, the audience gets to see the characters grow up in front of their eyes. Actor Ellar Coltrane started this film when he was six years … Read More Movie Review: Boyhood (2014)

2014 Oscars Challenge: [7] Before Midnight – One Nomination

Screenplay by Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy, and Ethan Hawke No other film in the Best Adapted Screenplay category works harder than “Before Midnight”. Now, do not mistake my words, as I do not feel like it will be taking home the big honor, but in terms of delivering in the sense of dialogue and descriptions, no other screenplay nominated captures more character development with … Read More 2014 Oscars Challenge: [7] Before Midnight – One Nomination

Movie Review: Before Midnight (2013)

BEFORE MIDNIGHT BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJULY 9, 2013 Of the relationships I’ve encountered, none have gotten as far as the main one in “Before Midnight.” I have had my fair share of fights with girlfriends and even watched them walk out on me, but they were never as intricate and lengthy as the relationship between Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy). That said, having … Read More Movie Review: Before Midnight (2013)

Quick Review: Before Sunset (2004)

Their conversations, co-written by each of them, naturally flow as they walk the streets of Paris, sit in a cafe smoking, and … Read More Quick Review: Before Sunset (2004)

With Hawke’s character flying out … Read More Movie Review: Before Sunrise (1995)

Yeah, me too. It’s called “The Purge.” And like the blood-lusting lunatics grinning through masks, this film left all of that potential at the front … Read More Quick Review: The Purge (2013)

Movie Review: Brooklyn’s Finest (2010)
