    Everybody Wants Some 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 05 May, 2016

    It's a love it or hate it film but as a huge Linklater supporter I found a lot to love. Those who hated Boyhood and like a film to have an A to B plot, and drama to resolve in some way over the course of 2 hours look elsewhere, this film isn't for you.

    I love Linklater's worlds he creates, the dialogue, and characters so the film was a lot of fun for me. I understand the lead character…

    Miracle Mile 1988

    ★★★★ Watched 02 May, 2016

    An underrated, non-stop thrill ride that doesn't get the recognition it deserves and sadly is the type of film that is a relic of the period it's made in.

    I've been a longtime fan of…

    Nebraska 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 30 Jan, 2014

    Alexander Payne is the master of good, quirky family drama without dialing up the quirk. This movie wasn't the masterpiece I was hoping for but I am a definite sucker for Father-Son drama, black & white cinematography, and movies about small towns. All the acting is superb especially Bruce Dern and June Squibb who are never affectionate but feel so real as an old couple. Actually the whole family feels extremely real and that's what I loved most about. Even Will…
