Amazing. So much fun. Sort of a mix of The Commitments with Once (same director so no wonder) but still totally unique. Very quick synopsis since no one here ever knows these movies i see: 14 yr-old Conor is growing up in 80's Dublin. Having a tough time at home and at school, he luckily gets lost in the eyes of one Raphina. Giving him new purpose in winning her heart, he decides to be a rock star and quickly forms a band. That's all you need to know. I don't...

This movie has a lot of heart. Technically a 2015 film, but didn't get a North American release until 2016. It's one of those difficult yet uplifting movies about what happens when a good friend gets diagnosed with terminal cancer and you decide to spend a few days with them. How does that go? Do you go and live the good life, making the most out of every moment? Or are you actually going to face what's to come and help your friend deal with decisions that no one should ever have to make. Or are those days made...

In classic Linklater form, you're left a few times in the movie wondering what the hell this is all about? It all came together for me and hit me like a freight train in the very last closing shot of the movie, weirdly enough. Linklater has a real gift at bringing you back to places, revisiting your youth and making you remember quite clearly memories of times past. Boyhood did this brilliantly (and let's not talk about how impossible it must be this to follow up after that movie), but this one also pulls that...

In a state of war, decisions are often extremely easy (and they have to be), but in relative peace time, complicated doesn't even begin to describe it. This is a pretty tense film. My heart is still racing a bit and the movie ended over an hour ago. This is a very good movie around the rules of engagement using drone strikes. It also happens to be Alan Rickman's final performance, and it's a good one. The first half of the movie is excellent, stressful and smart. I think it gets...

Fantastically funny and important film. I really need to bring my girl to see this a second time I think. There are some pretty important messages in here on tolerance and career-aspiration dreams. But honestly, I think I just want to rewatch the sloths in the DMV again. I was in stitches during that part. The one taking the picture....wow. Pixar is going to have their hands full trying to beat this. It's just a terrifically fun movie. I tell you, it's nice not falling asleep in a kid's movie. Which leads me to think...
