This afternoon I went to see Boyhood, directed by Richard Linkater. The movie has received wonderful reviews, and I was really looking forward to it. I enjoyed Linklater’s films, “Fast Food Nation,” “Before Sunset,” “School of Rock,” and of course, the iconic “Dazed and Confused” (one of my favorite movies ever!) So I had high hopes for this one. Linklater took 12 years to make this movie because he decided to use the same actor (Ellar Coltrane) who plays the main character throughout the film. So we are truly watching a boy grow up on screen. This in itself is quite unique and indeed very fascinating. However, I came away disappointed.

It’s not that this was a bad movie. It’s definitely better than 90% of the mindless crap that Hollywood pumps out these days. But the movie falls flat. I love character driven dramas, and I am more entertained by good dialogue and a good plot than by action and adventure. But even for me, this movie was just sort of boring. I never felt really drawn in to any of the main characters. And rather than smoothly transitioning from one stage of the boy’s life to the next – or else going from grade school to middle school to high school and allowing us to get attached to the circumstances and characters during each of these stages – the movie tends to progress randomly. Is it a year later? Is it a month later? Is it two years later? It’s difficult to tell. We essentially have to figure it out based on the boy’s hair style at the time.

But I get it. The idea was for us to watch this boy grow up on screen. But the segues were odd. And just as you start to take interest in a particular character (for example, the two step fathers that were very well portrayed), the movie jumps to the next stage in the boy’s life and those characters are jettisoned from the movie in the process. We never see them again, and we are left with many unresolved character plots. The only characters we see consistently throughout the film are the boy, his sister (Lorelei Linklater), his mother (Patricia Arquette), and the father (Ethan Hawke). But none of these characters really gained my interest. I wanted to become emotionally invested in them, but I never did.

There were a few humorous moments, but not many. There was plenty of beautiful scenery. But the movie never succeeded in delivering the intended sentiment. But again, this was not a terrible movie. If you’re gonna spend $15 at the movies, this will be better than anything else that’s playing. But I’d wait for it to come out on video.

OK, that’s my two cent movie review on this one. I wish that I had something better to say about it. Of course, others may completely disagree with my assessment. If you’ve seen it, please let me know what you think.

Dazed and Confused is wonderful. Of course, it's the type of movie that might only be appreciated by people familiar with the 70's. But I think it still communicates the universal themes of high school shenanigans. Infinitely better than Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Fast Food Nation is also a good movie.

It looks like it will be of a much higher quality than 2000's Left Behind: The Movie.

I watched Terminator 3 & 4 for the first time and I have to say I was very disappointed--more so with the former. Part 3 entirely pooped on the masterpiece that was Judgment Day by contradicting the "No fate" message and making half the plot pointless and obsolete since judgment day still inevitably happened (albeit at a later date).

If I were writing the plot for Terminator 3, I'd follow the "Battle Across Time" theme and revolve it around destroying the time machines in the future so that the Terminator 2 timeline can be preserved and the timeline never changed again. It'd end with Arnold going back in time to protect young John Connor, leading to the events of Terminator 2, and Reese going back to protect Sarah Conner, leading to the events of Terminator 1, then the time machines being destroyed once and for all.

Worst part about Terminator 3 is that it implies Arnold committed suicide at the end of Judgment Day for nothing since judgment day still happened. Thus, one of the saddest deaths in all of action cinema history was rendered pointless. John lost the one father figure he had in his life for nothing.

I watched two movies yesterday night: the first was the Indie horror flick Deadgirl and the second was The Matrix It was my first time viewing both.

I have to say that the former, if you can stomach just how disturbing it really is, was very original and instilled new life in the zombie genre. It was also a great premise and concept for exploring just how dark and disturbed humans can really be, especially when it comes to sex and desires, and what we would do if we had ultimate power. However, due to bad acting, sloppy writing, and other factors, the film just devolved into a typical horror movie torture-porn rape fest. I was disappointed that such a great story and premise with the potential to be, in my opinion, one of the greatest zombie and horror movies of all time--filled with a Romero-ian social commentary on contemporary and philosophical issues--was wasted into one trashy, subpar movie. It's a solid 5/10, and the only reason for that is because its premise was original and it had potential. Cut that out and it's only a 3/10.

In regards to the latter movie I watched--The Matrix--I was somewhat intrigued, but I didn't feel it lived up to its hype. I don't get the "ooh it's philosophical and deep!" reputation it has among armchair movie philosophers. It really wasn't that confusing or deep Plus, I feel like the story vastly plagiarized and ripped-off the Terminator franchise--what with advanced computers taking over and the alternate universes/timelines thing. The kung-fu sequences were also godawful and outrightly cheesy and cringeworthy. Unless you're a 1980s Asian kung-fu flick, leave the martial arts sequences out. It's just laughable and bad. Also, I feel that the acting was very bad and there was no good chemistry between the characters. I'll give this movie a solid 6/10.

I had so many people tell me how great The Matrix was. I suffered through 15 minutes of it and that's all I could take. Terrible movie.

"Frozen"  for the 900th time. *sigh*  Sad

Penance for having daughters.
Tis the penance that never ends...

I can sing the entire soundtrack on command. No man should be able to do that.

Let it go.

Leroy & Stitch. A fitting end to a fun show.

Phantom of the Opera

I enjoyed it well enough.

Even better than YouTube or Vimeo, if you have access to Netflix, The Island (Ostrov) is currently available there.  Beautiful cinematography and excellent acting;  In a remote and very poor monastery on the seacoast, a WWII coward and traitor redeems himself by living the life of a holy fool who resists the adulation of the crowds and torments the monks with his antics.  Russian language with subtitles.
