By | January 1st, 2015|Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Musicals, Romance, Theater|7 Comments

 BOYHOOD: Richard Linklater's extraordinary "12 years a film" feat! He directed the same cast over a dozen years and captured the ephemeral truth about one boy's childhood and growing up in a broken home. It's a "meta" experience for filmgoers who watch the actors and the characters they play, age on camera over time, while the boy played by the soulful Ellar Coltrane--expressive and [...]

So many screens-- so little to see. GODZILLA is godawful. And put a big X through X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Coasting on the devotion of diehard fans who remember the back stories, this latest installment suffers from franchise burnout and never breaks a sweat. How about MALEFICENT? What could be better than Angelina Jolie [...]
