The Skeleton Twins
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Very gripping and real story plot lines plot points in this movie surprisingly Bill hater and Kristen wig do a pretty decent job at performing these deep type of rules??It's interesting to see your favorite SNL cast members (SNL alums Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader) taking on this dramatic and depressing sort of film. They are always great together (on SNL, Adventureland).??But still they did a pretty decent job.
Between the two of them, Bill Hader was my favorite of the two. This is one of his best rolls he's done since he departed SNL. He gives an amazing performance. Totally random that Luke Wilson played Kristen wig's husband.
Amazing film.
The Skeleton Twins, I give you a 90%.

Locke
Locke (2014)
8 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Some "one-character one-location" films (such as "All is Lost") are successful at keeping the audiences attention and becoming a tour de force achievement. "Locke" only achieved one of these.

"Locke" is about a man (Tom Hardy's Ivan Locke) who is driving 2 hours on steady traffic to witness the birth of his child from a woman he cheated on his wife with once. While on his journey, he has a list of things he must do while driving. One is that he must break the news of his lie and his past actions to his wife and another is to walk one of his colleagues through what was called the biggest concrete pour in England's history. So big that Locke was fired over the phone for his job "abandonment."

Everything he does, there is no turning back.

This film only slightly kept my attention with the rich dialogue (which I had to have subtitles for (rich accents)) but overall, there was nothing that sparked or gave me any sort of satisfaction from watching it. Tom Hardy proved himself as a decent actor but it wasn't a tour-de-force performance.

The ending didn't help at all.

Locke, I give you a 60%.

Boyhood
Boyhood (2014)
8 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Hands (and feet) down, my favorite film of the summer.

Such a wondrous take on childhood, relationships and growing up. It's such a beautiful film I can't take it.

Words cannot express my deep feelings and emotions towards this film. Not being lazy.

Please please please! Go see this film. Everyone needs to see this film, especially if you were born in the 90s. And also take your family, especially your parents.

With the 12-year long dedication to this film and its perfected screenplay that tells us an incredible story of the growth and journey of a boy from age five to 18, this film is exactly what everybody is saying. Simply put, Boyhood is a cinematic revelation the likes of which we have never seen.

It's amazing how Richard Linklater was able to pursue this project, bringing the whole cast and crew back together once every year for 12 years to film the next stage of the film.

Boyhood, I give you a 100%.

Wish I Was Here

I can hardly see anything wrong with this film. I truly enjoyed every minute of this film; I really mean it. This film made me feel so many emotions, I can't even believe it. The writing and cinematography were both incredible.

I guess one small fault is that the film didn't seem like it had a well structured plot with rising and falling action or even a real conflict.

Wish I Was Here, I give you a 90%.

Life Itself

I have reading Roger Ebert's memoir waiting to celebrate his life by viewing it on the big screen in this fantastic documentary.

If you love movies, movie critics, or the celebration of life and a great man, I urge you to see this film.

I can't believe how much Ebert has done in his life to shape pop culture, movie criticism and the way we view films today.

Life Itself, I give you a 100%.
