    I'm a sucker for coming of age flicks and this one is no exception. I pretty simple story about a somewhat nerdy boy trying to impress a girl vy starting a band. It's got heart, humor and weight. The characters are all lovable and the music is great. A surprising gem.

    If you watch the trailer you will expect a sappy lame romance movie and for the most part it is exactly that bit all the pices work to make this better than most. Emilia Clark is charming and charismatic, as one would expect from the mother of dragons. The dude lead was good as well. Better than what I expected.

    The only special skill Liam Neeson has in this picture is being awesome. This great, thrilling detective piece is intense from beginning to end. I wasn't sure how I felt initially about the young sidekick but I ended up loving young Detective Daunte Culpepper. Great flick all around.

    I had no real idea what I was getting into when I started this flick but I was completely engrossed. Great performances, neat ideas, and good direction really compels this movie forward. My only nit-pick would be I felt like I was a step ahead of the "reveals", I feel like the directors held our hands a bit or maybe I've seen enough time travel movies that it would take a lot to surprise me. Regardless I really enjoyed this flick a lot.
