    Boyhood

    ★★★★

    In this fantastic film by Richard Linklater, a boy named Mason (Ellar Coltrane) grows into a young man. We witness both major and minor life events in Mason's life, from ages 6 to 18. This includes effects from his parents' divorce (and remarriages), multiple relocations around Texas, and the transition to college and adulthood. What's unbelievably impressive is that the same actor is growing into a young man, so this film was in production for twelve years. It's hard to…

    Life Itself

    ★★★★

    I've always felt a certain kinship with Roger Ebert; I often shared the same opinions with him on films, loved his writing, and even have the same birthday as him.

After a series of unfortunate events, downtrodden chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) starts a food truck, and is soon joined by sous chef Martin (John Leguizamo). This also affords Casper the opportunity to connect with his son (Emjay Anthony), who lives with his mother/Casper's ex-wife (Sofia Vergara). Casper soon rediscovers all of his loves, and it's a joy to watch.…
