It’s been 23 years since director/writer Richard Linklater’s seminal “Dazed and Confused” remembered so distinctly the last day of high school in 1976. But in his new “Everybody Wants Some”, it’s like only 4 years have passed as he takes a new group of talented young actors and places them in the first few days before college begins in 1980. Cited as a spiritual sequel to “Dazed” (and to “Boyhood” to boot), this story follows the members of a college baseball team as they suss out college life before classes even start. And to give you the full spectrum of age-related responses, reviewing the film we have Chris Herman (too young to remember when any of this was happening) and Chris Cox (just the right age to remember all of it).
