Everybody Wants Some!!

Release: Friday, April 15, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Richard Linklater Directed by: Richard Linklater All right, all right, all right — so it’s been over twenty years since Matthew McConaughey brilliantly repurposed those famous Doors lyrics, and it might seem a little suspect that director Richard Linklater would take another trip like this down memory lane, in 2016. HasContinue reading “Everybody Wants Some!!”

TBT: National Lampoon’s Van Wilder (2002)

Panic time is now over as I have finally found something to talk about this Thursday. (Why don’t I have a DVD plan with Netflix yet? That would surely eliminate some of this stress of finding movies I want to see only to be denied by a limited viewing availability. Oh, wait. That’s right. ItContinue reading “TBT: National Lampoon’s Van Wilder (2002)”

TBT: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)

As we start setting our sights on the fall season, kids also have to start setting their sights on their homework and class schedules. I don’t. (Ha!) But that just means I’m of a certain age. So, in my ‘old age’ that’s not really old age but is fun to say old age because that’sContinue reading “TBT: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)”

Boyhood

Release: Friday, July 18, 2014 (limited) [Theater] I know my refusal to get up out of my seat even after almost three consecutive hours of sitting — in considerably cramped quarters, I might add — is pretty weak testament to the fact that Boyhood just may be one of the coolest films this reviewer has had the privilegeContinue reading “Boyhood”

TBT: Dead Poets Society (1989)

As if this wasn’t going to happen you guys. . . This is the perfect combination of fitting in with this month’s sort-of-theme (going back to school, woo!) and the ongoing tribute to one of my favorite performers of all time. We now have an opportunity to crack into what many of us probably hold dear to our heartsContinue reading “TBT: Dead Poets Society (1989)”

TBT: Accepted (2006)

Well today, I went from this to that, and that to this and that to that and finally from this to this. It’s been a struggle. While all this dilly-dallying is going on, there are kids going back to school. Or college students preparing to do so. For those people I spare no sympathies because I too wasContinue reading “TBT: Accepted (2006)”

TBT: Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

The dog days of summer are upon us. It’s August, and that means back to school for some and the vacations are mostly over for the families who have been basking in the glorious summer sun (though I look forward personally to some more reasonable temperatures. . . we pasty-skinned Brits burn just embarrassingly easily). Yes, August is theContinue reading “TBT: Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)”
