Boyhood
“Boyhood,” “Boyhood,” “Boyhood,” “Boyhood,” “Boyhood.” The chatter about the Richard Linklater indie has been omnipresent in the last two weeks, but for good reason: if you somehow haven’t heard, it’s really something else. At almost 3 hours, “Boyhood” is a film shot over twelve years documenting a divorced family as seen through the eyes of a young boy (Ellar Coltrane). You might have quipped to yourself when you saw Linklater visiting at Industrial Light & Magic this past week on Twitter, that the ambitious director could have saved himself a little time by just going the ‘Benjamin Button’ route of special effects. But there’s no CGI here. “Boyhood” is the real deal. We watch a boy of six years old grow into a man around the age of eighteen right before your eyes over the span of a 164-minute movie.

Batman Vs. Superman Ben Affleck Batman
While Kevin Feige has enough to talk about when it comes to the forthcoming "Guardians Of The Galaxy," it seems much of his press time of late has been spent explaining what the heck has been going on with "Ant-Man." And then over his shoulder are his rivals at D.C. Comics who coming hard in 2016 with "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice." But Feige feels no ill toward his fellow purveyors of comic book cinema, and he credits the success they've achieved so far.

Anton Corbijn, Philip Seymour Hoffman, A-Most-Wanted-Man
Nearly six months on, and the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman still stings enormously. In part, it's being reminded of his immense talents in movies like "God's Pocket" and next week's "A Most Wanted Man," which were completed before his passing (both premiered at Sundance in January, mere weeks ahead of the actor's death, and are subsequently hitting theaters). And in part, it's because of knowing that the 46-year-old actor could have had so much good work ahead of him, had he lived.
