Movie Review: Neighbors

For awhile I was deciding whether or not I should do this review. Neighbors is a movie meant for teenager and adults for a goofy friday night movie event. After a few hours of deciding, I started writing.

 

Neighbors is about new family, Mac (played by Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (played by Rose Byrne) live the new family life with their six month old daughter, Stella. They face the everyday challenges that any other new family would. For example, when is going out okay and when to fit their own pleasures in.

 

When their new neighbors move in, it isn’t what they expected. Their neighbors are a fraternity full of party animals. Everything starts off okay, Mac and Kelly ask to have them keep the noise down and President of the fraternity, Teddy Sanders (played by Zac Efron), made them promise if they’re too loud to talk to him and not the police.

 

Everything changes when Mac and Kelly call the police due to the noise. The fraternity starts their revenge on Mac and Kelly with ridiculous little stunts. Soon it’s a full on war between new parents Mac and Kelly and fraternity president, Teddy.

 

I found this movie incredibly entertaining. It’s definitely not for children but for teenagers and or adults looking for a good comedy to entertain them. Neighbors certainly does it’s job in making the audience entertained.

 

Seth Rogen is known for a lot of comedy productions, however Zac Efron is just starting to get into them. Zac Efron starred in High School Musical one, two and three and then moved to dramatic and romantic movies and then starred in comedy movies.
The movie consists of a lot of profanity, some sexual scenes, and drugs. I say this again, this movie is not for kids. This movie is for teenagers and adults. It was a good movie and I recommend this for a goofy movie to see with friends.

The Amazing Spider-Man Movie Review

I love superhero movies. I’ve seen every Marvel superhero movie, however I was not a fan of this superhero movie. My brother and I were dying to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But once we got there, we were really upset with this movie.

 

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 follows the first movie, The Amazing Spider-Man, which stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey. The movie is about Peter struggling to keep his promise to Gwen’s father by staying away from her. Peter constantly beats himself up in fear that if he loves Gwen, her life will be put out on the line. But he loves Gwen too much to leave her alone. Then there’s the pressure of being Spider-Man and saving every crime from the city. When Peter’s old friend, Harry Osborn, comes to him asking to see Spider-Man so he can be saved, Peter now faces more problems. Should he let Harry down by saying Spider-Man won’t help? Or give Harry the blood that he needs to live? Peter decides to turn Harry down which creates an enemy for Spider-Man.

 

But Peter has more problems added to his life, there’s a second villain in the picture. Jamie Foxx plays the incredible villain, Electro. Electro is a troubled villain. Before the accident causing him to gain his powers, he was a nobody with an obsession over Spider-Man. But when Electro believes that Spider-Man is trying to take all of the fame, he snaps. Now Spider-Man has two villains on his plate along with the struggle of staying away from the love of his life.

 

Sounds like a pretty intense movie? Wrong. Even with the two villains trying to destroy Spider-Man there was NO action. It was all romance. I know I’m all for the romance, but I was looking forward to seeing some butt kicking going on!
So, if you’re looking for a movie to see this weekend. I would recommend to not see The Amazing-Spider Man, unless you want to see more romance than action. This movie really disappointed me in the end.
