Allow us to add some specificity to the headline here—Richard Linklater’s Boyhood doesn’t just take place over the course of 12 years in a boy’s life, it literally was filmed over the course of 12 years in order to show it’s young protagonist (as well as the rest of the cast) age realistically.  That’s right—every year, Linklater would round up members...

Sundance 2014: Boyhood - Movie Review

  Rather than lament the dozens of films I was unable to see at this year's Sundance Film Festival, I'm considering just how lucky I was to see Richard Linklater's latest film, Boyhood.  One of the hottest tickets of the week, Boyhood is the simple story of a child growing into a man, and was filmed with the same principal cast over the last 12 years.  It caught me...

The Purge: Movie Review

The Purge
Nine years into the future, America has emerged from an unnamed and yet-to-happen calamity. It's reborn with a seemingly God-fearing public and almost no crime to speak of. Except for one night a year,  with"The Purge," when it's open season on anyone not wealthy or strong enough to protect themselves. But look on the bright side: Unemployment is only at 1 percent!

Before Midnight: Movie Review

before-midnight-4
At first glance, Richard Linklater's romantic drama Before Midnight, appears to be about an older man and woman reaching their 40s together. But upon viewing, it's really an examination of a couple as they dissect and figure out their continually budding relationship. It's a beautiful collaboration between the filmmaker and two actors who poured their hearts into...

Richard Linklater has been on the independent film scene for decades, notable for such 90's highlights as Slacker and Dazed and Confused. But as great as those films are, his trilogy of Before movies is his career triumph. It's started with Before Sunrise, which followed what happened one night between an American traveler (Ethan Hawke) and a...

Sinister: Movie Review

Sinister – Ethan Hawke (TOP)
When it comes to horror movies, houses tend to have dark histories. That's the case with Scott Derrickson's Sinister, which stars Ethan Hawke as Ellison Oswalt, a true-crime novelist looking for his In Cold Blood. The film follows a conventional, often dumb premise, but there's no denying it's filled with scares.

It seems Ethan Hawke is an awesome liar – who knew? Just last week reports were in that work had begun on filming Before Midnight, a sequel to Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, and from the impression Hawke gave, the shooting was very much in the preliminary stages.

Ethan Hawke in Sinister
How’s this for a series of horror movie clichés?  Down on his luck writer moves his family to a haunted new place and becomes entranced with the old records of the past that he finds there (The Shining).  Mysterious ghoul that lives inside of film and uses it as a medium to transmit itself into the real world (Ringu/The Ring).  Creepy...

Look, Hollywood, we get it: spooky little girls are, well, spooky.  We understood it in the Ringu and Ring films.  We’ve been beaten over the head with the Paranormal Activity franchise.  We all sorta-kinda remember catching something spooky near the end of Poltergeist 3 on TBS late one night.  Do we...

This week in movies is a little bit on the weak side. The vampire flick starring Ethan Hawke, Daybreakers, hits theaters. The movie is about a society of vampires that farm humans for their blood, except something goes terribly wrong.

Daybreakers: The Folks With the Cross-Bows
Ready for more vampires? Of course you are! No one ever gets sick of them, do they? Hope not because Hollywood isn't giving until they've drained every last cinematic drop from them. Daybreakers has tried to break the mold by making vampires the new human race. Sounds interesting enough, but did they pull it off? It's debatable, let's take a look...
