“Boyhood” or “Boy Gets Bitched At By Everyone He Knows For 12 Years”- my fuckin review

Here is my review for “Boyhood“. Okay so this movie took 12 years to make. WHAT THE FUCKKKKK! That’s commitment. It’s about a boy’s life from ages 5 to 18. His father is Ethan Hawke and his mother is Patricia Arquette. I wish they were my fuckin parents. The boy is played by Ellar Coltrane and he has a sister played by Lorelei Linklater (Daughter of the director). It follows his life and growing up with divorced parents, a bitchy sister, alcoholic stepdads, girlfriends and leaving home. Okay so I enjoyed this movie, and it was pretty interesting and entertaining. You literally watch everyone age and grow older for 12 fuckin years. The best part about this movie though was Patricia Arquette. She was real as fuck and told the daughter to say goodbye to her horse shit attitude. Amazing! Ethan was great too and really did seem like he was trying to be a cool dad. The most uninteresting character to me was the boy the movie is about Mason (Ellar Coltrane). He just kinda stood around watching things happen to him and getting yelled at by everyone in the movie. Maybe that’s what boys feel like, everyone telling them what to do and how to act. Then we he gets older he is still pretty quiet and talks about hating Facebook. The movie is called “Boyhood” but really he was just boring to me, maybe boring is real but I am not interested in boring. Don’t get me wrong I did like it, and what happens throughout the film feels pretty real and sad at times. Patricia and Ethan are the stars of this movie and you love them in it. You should watch it for sure. It’s like 3 hours long though so get ready for that shit. So if you love Patricia, Ethan, some boy, life, aging, and coming of age shit then this is the movie for you. I like it, but didn’t love it cuz the main character was boring. The idea of it and the characters make it worth the watch. Go check it out and love Patricia.

The Facts:

A. Patricia Arquette is the best part about this movie. It should have been called “Motherhood” and been about her. She was the most interesting part. Give her awards! All her scenes mattered.

She should have won for “A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors“.

This scene was my favorite.

B. It feels like if you take a giant book then start thumbing through the pages and stop every couple of minutes the pages that you stop on would be scenes in this movie. Not the whole book. Just select moments in a boy’s life.

C. Lorelei Linklater was funny as the boys sister. She is the real daughter of Richard Linklater.

D. Richard Linklater directed this movie and these Dazed and ConfusedWaking LifeSchool of RockA Scanner DarklyBefore Midnight etc. Dazed and Confused is my favorite film he has done.

E. Ellar Coltrane was the star of this movie. He was filmed from ages 5 to age 18. He was entertaining as a kid, then he grew up and got quiet and awkward. I guess that’s real life for some. If you grew up in the early 2000’s then you will relate to it more I bet.

F. Ethan Hawke was great as a weekend dad.
