This week we have a handful of movies releasing. Three of these are 2016 releases that are wide releasing, and the other three look like the typical January slew of iffy movies. My choice would be to see Scorsese’s Silence, Affleck’s Live by Night, or Peter Berg’s Patriots Day.
“The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together.”
Linkletter does it again. In this college baseball movie, there is little college or baseball involved in Everybody Wants some.The spitural successor to Dazed and confused feels just like we left the boys like Pink,Mitch, and Wooderson and followed them into their college days. A movie about finding yourself is just as much part Dazed and Confused as it is part Boyhood. With rapid fire jokes and machine gun dialogue that linkletter is famous for, Everybody Wants Some uses sex, beer, and baseball to deliver a great movie and throwback to what Linkletter does best, nostalgia and the feeling of a reality in a picture. The ensemble cast is the movie’s real gem. Headlined by Blake Jenner and including Wyatt Russel simpler killls their lines and the chemistry between the boys never misses a beat.The soundtrack is just as good as Dazed and Confused. 4/5
Remeber is the geriatric Memento. An elderly man with dementia must complete his promise to his wife to kill the man who murdered his and his friends families, while they were prisoners in Auschwitz during Nazi WWII. Remeber has twists and turns like any great thriller. The story, while not entirely original proves to be enjoyable and very captivating. Remeber is steaming on Amazon prime video so watch it today !- 3.5/5 is
