Boyhood

Boyhood

This was a very special and impressive film. Special because it really captured all those years-to be exact 12 years- as real as possible to what most of us have went through or maybe just relate to some occasions. And impressive because to continue with a project like this for so many years and try to achieve a coherent story that never felt apart but instead became stronger and as real and are as possible. Moreover, the acting was good but not as spectacular as I was hoping for, but at least it was natural enough to be credible, while the adult actors (Ethan Hawke & Patricia Arquette) were really good and enacted some of the most dramatic and strong performances. I do have to say that it was a really strange movie in a way, because somehow it flowed so nicely and I even sometimes didn't realize that I was looking at the same couple of actors grow up on-screen, it just seemed so strange but at the same time incredibly amazing. But more importantly, even though the movie runs for almost 3 hours, it never gets boring or tiring, but it goes by so fast and smoothly. However, I did expect something a little more different story wise, because sometimes it was hard for me to really know what was going on inside Mason's head for example, and that was kind of a let down. But overall, it sure is one of those movies that you have to experience and appreciate all the work behind it because movies like this are extremely rare and this one is pretty unique in its own way.

This was a very different movie from anything I've seen before. It was all shot with just Tom Hardy onscreen and everything happened inside his car. The premise was basic, but the way it developed onscreen and with an excellent performance by Tom Hardy, it truly was amazing to watch his character trying to manage everything at once while, just to make everything right. However, I do have to say that it was a little slow paced and it might be boring for some people, it was all about less is more, but great in humanistic storytelling and an outstanding cinematography.

This is a great example of how a movie with different types of genres should be done. Not only was it funny, but it also had its heartfelt moments. Also, the acting was great from all the cast but mainly from Dane DeHaan, who mixed dramatic and comedic elements very naturally, and the always excellent Aubrey Plaza who was so damn funny and probably was one of the funniest zombies on a movie. Overall the whole movie got better as the story progressed, and although in the beginning I wasn't sure it was going to be good, in the end it showed how in depth the story really was because it wasn't only comedy but there was a real message and metaphor behind all the humor.

I was disappointed with the movie, because I thought it would be more suspenseful and intriguing, but sadly it was very slow and because of that it was easy to get bored. However, the acting was very good and that at least kept the movie going forward, and also it had some good action moments, which lacked. I had a different idea of how the movie would be, because it seemed more thrilling on the trailer, but that was misleading. Still, the main plot about Tommy was good enough and kept me intrigued about him, even though the ending wasn't very satisfactory.

This movie felt very different from a horror movie, even though it had its goth and creepy elements. But somehow it was more of a dramatic movie with a darker atmosphere. Also, the look of the movie was of an independent film although there were some scenes and landscapes that looked really good. Moreover, the acting was kind of a mixed bag, I wasn't completely sold with it but somehow it felt adequate in the more romantic scenes instead of the ones that were supposed to be scary. I'm completely sure this movie should have a lower rating, but there was something about the characters and their relationship, that really was outstanding and really resonated until the end. Also it was very nostalgic in the end.
