Green Room- Review

imagesGreen Room 2015

Directed by Jeremy Saulnier

Starring: Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin, and Patrick Stewart.

I’ve wanted to watch this ever since word came out about it last year. Green Room’ more than lived up to the hype. Gruesome, intense, and just downright crazy. I can’t really figure out how to express how much I loved watching this film.

From the start of the movie it sets a tone, is a horror thriller about a punk band that is held captive at a skinhead venue after witnessing staff members commit a murder. The casting was phenomenal, was very sad to hear that Anton Yelchin passed away last month, he carried this movie. Surviving isn’t easy when your opponent’s got shotguns, revolvers, box knives and bulldogs. Some scenes were very graphic,but there wasn’t violence just being thrown around. I didn’t expect it to end the way it did.

The setting is absolutely awesome and contributes to the gloomy atmosphere. It accomplished everything it needed to perfectly. If your looking for an intense brutal thriller then definitely pick this one up, it dose not disappoint.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Review

neighbors-2Genre: Comedy
Release Date: May 20,2016
Runtime: 1h. 32 mins
MPAA Rating: R
Rating: 4.5 Stars

After the events of the 2014 film, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are expecting another child and trying to sell their house, getting an offer and having to wait for a 30-day escrow period to pass before the sale can be finalized. Meanwhile, Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz) and fellow college freshmen are joining a sorority, only to learn that only fraternities can party. So they rent the house next door to Mac and Kelly.

This movie was absolutely hilarious!! Don’t listen to all the haters. I couldn’t stop laughing during the whole movie. Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne all return, to their starring roles; and they’re joined this time by Chloe Grace Moretz (in the new antagonistic neighbor role). My god I love Zac Efron, he is so amazing as Teddy! Teddy is in a very sad place in this one and you often feel for him as much as you laugh at him. Whenever Rogen and Efron are on screen together, I was dying. I could’ve watched Rogen teaching Efron how to make hard-boiled eggs for an entire film. Efron steals this film, to a point that Rogen and Byrne at times almost feel secondary to this story.

The first Neighbors was funnier overall, the movie is worth a watch if you have any interest. I don’t know what a third movie would be about, but I’d be down.
