Patricia Arquette Paid Dog Walker More Than She Received For 'Boyhood'


Patricia Arquette Richard Linklater

Boyhood is the outstanding movie of the year and, barring a Crash style upset, it will be crowned Best Picture at the Academy Awards on February 27. Still, if there's something more absolute than Richard Linklater's film winning the evening's biggest award, it is Patricia Arquette winning Best Supporting Actress.

Patricia ArquettePatricia Arquette [L] won the Golden Globe for Boyhood and is expected to win the Oscar

With respect to her fellow actresses, Arquette has nothing to beat. In a year of outstanding lead performances (Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Felicity Jones), Arquette's nearest competition will likely come in the form of Emma Stone for Birdman, Keira Knightley for The Imitation Game and Jessica Chastain for A Most Violent Year.

'Boyhood' Has 99% On Rotten Tomatoes. It Is Almost The Perfect Movie


Richard Linklater Ethan Hawke Patricia Arquette Ellar Coltrane

It's no surprise that Richard Linklater's movie Boyhood was this week installed as the favorite to win Best Picture at the Oscars next year. Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, the movie is ground-breaking cinema and the critics are absolutely unanimous in their praise.

BoyhoodCo-stars Ellar Coltrane [L] and Lorelei Linklater [R] in 'Boyhood'

Boyhood stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as the parents of Mason, a child played by the stellar Ellar Coltrane, who grows up before our eyes. It's a stunning time-capsule of a movie that charts the rocky terrain of childhood through road trips, family dinners, birthdays and graduation.

Ellar Coltrane's Journey As Mason In Richard Linklater's Boyhood


Ethan Hawke Ellar Coltrane Richard Linklater Patricia Arquette

When Ellar Coltrane was auditioning for the role of Mason as a 6-year-old, Richard Linklater was more interested in the resilience of his parents rather than the acting skills of the young protégée that would become the centrepiece for his most audacious film yet.

This is because his parents would have to keep this young actor interested in the role of a lifetime, spanning 12 years and shot for only three days per year. Ellar Coltrane got the part, and as we watch Mason grow up before our very eyes, a 19-year-old actor owes a huge part of his upbringing to the process of filming ‘Boyhood’.

Boyhood: The "Tremendous Risk" That Came Good At This Weekend's Box Office


Richard Linklater Ellar Coltrane Patricia Arquette Ethan Hawke

The box office was dominated by big budget blockbusters this weekend: Dawn of The Planet of The Apes finally usurped Transformers: Age of Extinction’s dominance at the top of the pile. But the real evolution story was told in Boyhood, as Mason became a young man and Richard Linklater proved his worth as one of the most of innovative auteurs working in cinema today.

Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei LinklaterEllar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater star in Boyhood

Linklater’s scripted coming of age movie, shot intermittently over 12 years using the same actors (Ellar Coltrane, Lorelie Linklater, Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke) indulges in the familiarity of domestic life. As we see the characters grow emotionally (via Linklaters incredibly relatable and organic screenplay) and physically (via simple biology – something Linklater managed to turn into a cinematic tool) we relate to the ostensibly forgettable nuances of childhood and adulthood, culminating in an intensely watchable modern masterpiece.

Boyhood Review


Essential

By shooting this film over 12 years, writer-director Richard Linklater is able to explore family dynamics in an intensely involving way that's never been seen on-screen before. Watching the film is such an immersive experience that it's impossible not to be moved as the characters grow up before our eyes. But this isn't a gimmicky drama; it's a masterwork of writing, directing, editing and acting.

The story opens in as a single mother (Patricia Arquette) makes the difficult decision to take her young children Samantha and Mason (Lorelei Linklater and Ellar Coltrane) back to Houston to live near her mother (Libby Villari) so she can go to university. Eventually the kids' absent father (Ethan Hawke) arrives for a visit, and over the following years both parents do their best to raise the kids on alternating weekends. Step-parents (Marco Perella, Brad Hawkins and Tamara Jolaine) come and go, while the children grow into young adults. Samantha leaves for college, and Mason discovers a talent for photography, which will shape his future. And he also has a first experience with love before graduating from high school and facing the world on his own.

As the title suggests, the film centres on Mason, and the remarkable Coltrane ages from 6 to 18 over the course of the story. Watching him grow up physically is sometimes startling, but it's his emotional process that makes the film a true classic, mainly because his inner development is pretty much the only plot the movie has. And it's utterly riveting: over two hours and 45 minutes, there isn't a single dull moment. This family shifts and changes, going through rhythms of playfulness, private jokes, dark emotion and deep pain. They also offer a running commentary on 12 years of American history, discussing politics and other issues while making major decisions about their own lives.

BOYHOOD Is A Once-in-a-lifetime Classic


Richard Linklater Ellar Coltrane Ethan Hawke Patricia Arquette

Shot over 12 years, Richard Linklater's new film Boyhood is being called the best movie of the decade. Its cast members have been out talking about the experience.

BoyhoodCo-stars Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater in 'Boyhood'

Ethan Hawke, who plays the family's father, has made eight films with Linklater. He commented on the uniqueness of this project: "We see very dramatic portraits of terrible parents or stereotypical good parents, but you don't see them both at the same time very often: parents struggling to be good parents, failing sometimes and succeeding other times, much like our own parents and ourselves. [Linklater] thinks life is pretty dramatic and beautiful and exciting as it is. For me, that's kind of revolutionary."

This weekend marks a monumental release in the history of cinema. Richard Linklater, already lauded for his magnificent ‘Before’ trilogy, debuts his film ‘Boyhood’ in UK theatres.

Taking place over 12 years, using the same actors, ‘Boyhood’ has unparalleled power when it comes to connoting story through time, especially in the case of Ellar Coltrane who, aged 6, started filming ‘Boyhood’ and didn’t wrap until he was 18.

Boyhood Trailer


When Mason was an unwitting 6-year-old boy, he had no idea - like the rest of his peers - just how much of a rollercoaster his next ten years would be. Many of the problems he would experience throughout his journey through boyhood and adolescence would remain, but either intensify or weaken with age. For example, as a 6-year-old, living with his single mother and struggling to have a proper relationship with his absent father who is living in Alaska was an issue that he would struggle to comprehend completely until he was old enough to have romantic relationships himself and understand them. Other issues that would never fade in his adulthood quest include moving homes, making friends and having his heart broken, but in the end all of those tempestuous experiences would shape the man he would become at 18-years-old.

Why James Gandolfini's Gift Is Bigger Than His Will - His Best (Non-Sopranos) Moments


James Gandolfini Coen Brothers Patricia Arquette

James Gandolfini’s death came as a huge surprise. His generosity, as displayed in his will wasn’t such a surprise, such was his reputation as a modest man. The father of the box set generation, giving people reason to invest so many hours into character, Gandolfini’s legacy is much bigger than the money he left behind. Here are his best, non-Soprano roles.

True Romance: Gandolfini effectively ‘broke’ into Hollywood with his role in True Romance as Virgil. A thug, Virgil’s defining moment was his epic fight with Alabama, played by Patricia Arquette, which culminates in her plunging a corkscrew through his foot. Gandolfini spoke about this scene on appearance on Inside The Actor’s Studio.

Beyond Rangoon Review


OK
Beyond Rangoon is absolutely typical of the way Hollywood can take a compelling story, full of genuine characters and heartfelt emotion, then hack it to tiny bits and put it back together, Frankenstein-like, into a sappy, overwrought drama that is without a soul and without a point.

The story is "based on actual events." Patricia Arquette plays Laura, an American doctor trying to find peace after the brutal murder of her husband and son. With her sister (Frances McDormand), they embark on a tour of the exotic East, including a peaceful stopover in Burma, a war-torn country ruled by military dictatorship (As they say, "In Burma, everything is illegal."). Laura's passport is lifted, and she finds herself trapped in the capital city of Rangoon, while her sister and their tour group head off to Bangkok. The Burmese pick that time to revolt, and Laura finds herself caught up in a civil war, which basically amounts to dodging bullets in the jungle while covered in mud.

Holes Review


Weak
In certain literary circles, the ones that meet during fourth-period study hall, Louis Sachar's Newberry Award-winning Holes has replaced the Harry Potter series as the hip new read. No wonder, since the novel introduces readers to a gaggle of misfit teens who hide behind self-inflicted nicknames like X-Ray (for his thick eye glasses) and Armpit (for his distinctive odor) and are characterized by their rebellious attitude towards authority.

Sachar's antihero is Stanley Yelnats IV (Shia LaBeouf), an affable but luckless teen who's accused of a crime he did not commit and ordered to serve his sentence at Camp Green Lake, a Texas labor camp that's neither green nor near any lake. Instead of archery and crafts, the inmates spend their days digging holes under the watchful eye of crusty Mr. Sir (Jon Voight). His boss, Warden Walker (Sigourney Weaver), seeks something of value under the camp and needs the boys to keep tunneling until the unidentified treasure is found.

Little Nicky Review


Excellent
For better or for worse (mostly for the worse) Adam Sandler's back on the big screen. And it's pure, satanic family fun.

Little Nicky (Adam Sandler) is the devil's third---and least impressive---son. Bested in brains by his brother Adrian (Rhys Ifans) and in strength by his brother Cassius (Tiny Lester), Nicky finds little joy outside of hanging out in his hell-bound bedroom, banging his head to heavy metal favorites. That is, until his father's 10,000-year reign draws to a close and it's time to name the new ruler of Hades.

Continue reading: Little Nicky Review

Little Nicky Review


Terrible

Having now seen "Little Nicky," in which Adam Sandler plays the retarded son of Satan, I have formulated a hypothesis I'm calling the Sandler Theory of Exponentially Obnoxious Returns. It goes something like this:

Adam Sandler goes out of his way to make each gimmick character he plays ("Billy Madison," "Happy Gilmore") more grating than the last, just to see how far he can push it before his easily amused fan base will turn on him.

His most detestable character to date had been "The Waterboy," but that Southern-fried dope was mister congeniality compared to Nicky, the little devil that couldn't. Sandler spends this entire movie with his face screwed up in a hit-by-a-shovel grimace and speaking in a silly, raspy voice like a little kid pretending to be sick so he can stay home from school. There's no joke here. It's just Sandler's version of stretching as an actor.

Continue reading: Little Nicky Review

Holes Review


Good

A rare kids' flick that engages youthful intellect and heart instead of patting youngsters on the head and spoon-feeding them stock anecdotes and tie-in toys, "Holes" is a fun family flick with a manifold plot about a smart, quiet teenager who gets the fate-fueled chance to reverse his family's hereditary bad luck.

It seems a curse was put the great-great-grandfather of curly-headed moppet Stanley Yelnats (Shia LaBeouf), and the trickle-down effect has landed the kid at a parched, ghost-town-like juvenile rehabilitation center in West Texas -- ironically called Camp Green Lake -- for a crime he didn't commit.

The venomous Warden (Sigorney Weaver, delighting in the role's sneering, sinister qualities) has a strange idea for building character in her charges: the boys spend every single day digging five-foot-deep holes in the dry lakebed. Her policies are enforced by the Mr. Sir, a classically menacing, beer-bellied, bow-legged figure played by Jon Voight in a scene-stealing standout performance. Sporting a graying Elvis pompadour, a villain's pencil mustache, twitchy wild eyes, and a low-slung holster, he's the kind of baddie who makes you giggle while making your skin crawl too, as he squints in the faces of potential escapees and seethes that in the desert "the buzzards'll pick ya clean by the end of the third day."
