Movie Review: Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some!!

Everybody Wants Some!!
Director: Richard Linklater
Screenwriter: Richard Linklater
Cast: Will Brittain, Zoey Deutch, Ryan Guzman, Tyler Hoechlin, Blake Jenner, Glen Powell, Wyatt Russell
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 116 Minutes
Release Date: April 22, 2016

Written and directed by Richard Linklater (Before Midnight, Boyhood), Everybody Wants Some!! is a spiritual sequel to the filmmaker’s seminal 1993 film, Dazed and Confused.

Set in 1980, the movie follows the lives of college baseball players on the last weekend before Fall semester begins. Blake Jenner (Glee) stars as 18-year-old Jake, a freshman pitcher who arrives at Texas Southern University blasting The Knack’s “My Sharona.” His home for the next four years is the run-down, off-campus baseball house; a place for winners. Upon arriving, he is immediately hazed by McReynolds (Tyler Hoechlin), the team’s mustachioed heavy hitter who hates pitchers (especially lefties like Jake).

boyhood still ifc films sxsw

Another week, another edition of The Digital Wire here at Geeks of Doom. Try not to look so enthusiastic. Major Blu-ray/DVD release announcements were scant this week, but news of some interesting titles soon to make their way to multiple home viewing platforms wasn’t, so I’ve compiled the best of the odds ‘n’ ends. We’ve got undead girlfriends, some Southern-fried slaughter, mismatched cops tearing up the Windy City, salacious studio hilarity, and one of the best-reviewed motion pictures of 2014. So I guess that last one is a pretty major announcement. My bad.

Boyhood
Director: Richard Linklater
Cast: Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater
IFC Films
Not Rated | 164 Minutes
Release Date: March 9, 2014

Directed by Richard Linklater (Before Midnight), Boyhood covers 12 years in the life of a family. The film was shot intermittently over a 12-year period, beginning in the summer of 2002 and completed in October of 2013.

We follow a young boy, Mason (Ellar Coltrane), as he matures from first grade through high school graduation, along with his older sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), and his divorced parents, Olivia (Patricia Arquette) and Mason, Sr. (Ethan Hawke).

As the years go by, we find them facing the realities of not only growing up, but also the ongoing challenges of parenting in an ever-changing world. Boyhood is an unprecedented achievement in long-term storytelling, a time capsule that allows audiences to relive their own adolescence through a series of memories.

Ethan Hawke and Julie Deply Have A Message For You

Common movie theater etiquette says that texting or talking during a film is highly frowned upon. But ever since the Alamo DraftHouse released the PSA of a disgruntled customer being kicked out for that very action, actors and directors have come out and participated in making these “Stop Texting” PSAs. Lots of them have already gone viral, and now a new PSA from Before Midnight stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Deply could go viral as well.

If you thought these two had chemistry for all three films, you should check out the chemistry they have for this simple, yet hilariously effective PSA from Alamo Drafthouse. And just for good measure, Deply cusses texters and talkers out in French. Don’t worry there are subtitles. Hit the jump to see the video.
