I was about to ask the same question!!!
Forgive me if this was covered somewhere, but is there anywhere I can view, or buy Bob Weirs movie the Other One? Peaceful Day, and thank you!
I enjoyed this Nicolas Cage flick. Joe.
Thanks for those recommendations katky. I missed many of those and will track some of them down.
As for Boyhood, it will probably be the kind of movie that people will either love or hate. It's almost 3 hours long and not much happens. The things that do happen might seem like cliches. But for me it didn't matter: it all just worked. I saw it yesterday and have been mulling it over ever since. It was a great, strange experience.
As a film buff (I keep a little notebook / lol), not only do I look forward to RL's ambitious and protracted production, but agree with you in spades regarding the comprehensive strength of 2013's catalogue of big-screen releases across all genres from horror to documentary! As a transplanted southerner, the most adept analogy I can invoke is to say that last year's roster is the cinematic equivalent of the SEC's football programs: a lot of premium talent with relatively few stinkers!
Aside from those you've listed (except for LLD, which eluded me entirely - though, having read Dylan's Chronicle Vol.1, I understand the significant milieu writers and producers were aiming at) and among larger releases that some might reasonably recognize, I loved Mud; The Way Way Back; Osage County; Dallas Buyer's Club; Philomena; The Iceman (big year for the awesome Michael Shannon (Mud)); Ain't Them Bodies Saints; Frozen; The Spectacular Now; Parkland; and The Place Beyond the Pines.
Also very good were, The Co. You Keep; Old Boy; Wish You Were Here (not Floyd); Fruitvale Stn.; The Sapphires; Jobs; The Butler; Enough Said; Prisoners; Lone Survivor; Gravity; Cpt. Phillips; 12 Years...; The Counselor; Mama (very good horror); Black Rock (suspense); The East (Page adds another line to an impressive resume); and the Conjuring.
Also a banner year for documentaries, especially those critical of the hegemony of extreme wealth in national and global politics./k
Saw "Boyhood" this afternoon. Great movie. Probably Linklater's best movie, which is saying a lot. This one lives up to the hype. Don't miss it.
(sorry, couldn't help it :) Had to go see this with Dolby Surround 7. Saw the 2D show and the special effects were spectacular. I loved this story when I saw it originally as a little kid and the story in this updated version is definitely worthy of admission. As usual, Godzilla is a total badass and in this episode he(?)wakes from the depths to wreak havoc on two other freaks of nature. Good stuff! Spoiler alert: Insurance policies are pointless and property owners in Honolulu and Oakland really take it in the shorts, so to speak.
I really think that this has been a great year for movies. I can't remember the last time I felt that way. I saw "Inside Llewelyn Davis", "Nebraska", "Her", "Blue Jasmine", and "American Hustle" and I loved all of them. Come on peeps, cynicism aside, it's been a great year for movies!
