Yes Yes!

'No No: A Dockumentary' is all over the place in a good way

Inside For All Day

'Starred Up' is tough, gritty and surprisingly good

Yay Another year, another prison drama. If Starred Up were formulaic and stupid it would be a travesty.

Irritated By Love

Yay Love Is Strange has the distinction of being a quiet movie that’s less interested in making grand statements than it is being a quiet portrayal of a difficult time in an extended family’s life.

Fiddly Digits, Itchy Britches

'Frank' is weird, beautiful and funny

Yay Co-screenwriter Jon Ronson came up with the story after spending time as a keyboardist for Frank Sidebottom, the alter ego of Chris Sievey, an English musician and comedian.

Life, In a Nutshell

Everything happens in the wonderful 'Boyhood'

Yay Boyhood is magnificent, and the banality is charming.

To Infinity Stone, and Beyond!

You’ll totes want to hang with these 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Yay Guardians of the Galaxy may be the best Marvel movie, period.

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 David Riedel

Thumbs Up

'Life Itself' is a wonderful chronicle of Roger Ebert

Yay What comes through most in Life Itself is Ebert’s love of movies, the depth of his film knowledge and the relationships he had with the people who loved him.
