MOVIE VI: NEIGHBORS II (2016) M REVIEW

You can totally rap up the whole movie by saying Zac Efron is effing hot, and you should watch him strip – almost rocking some Magic Mike moves – but I’ll go further in this. For the guys and men who are into lil’ girls, there is a bit of Selena Gomez there too. It’s not the brightest of movies, but since I watched it, here it is:

Zac isn’t in college anymore, his gay-best friend is getting married and he has to move out. He finds the perfect refugee: A House where Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz) and two other freshman girls (Kiersey Clemons and Beanie Feldstein) are starting a cool-sorority “Kappa Nu” that actually throws parties unlike other sororities that can only attend frat parties (organized by guys).

Next door however, are Zac’s former enermies: the Radners (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne). Those who have seen Neighbors 1 know a bit about their psychology, I’d advise watching Neighbors 1’s trailer, however you can totally catch up if you haven’t.

The Radners are expecting a baby and are trying to sell the house. According to them, there is no way they can sell it with crazy sorority parties happening in the house near them.

Zac starts out helping the Sorority raise money and get big, then he takes the old people’s side and decides on tearing it down with the Radners.

This Movie is 18+ at Cinemall and definitely targets university students; not a lot of wisdom messages there but here are a few things you might learn from Neighbors II:

  • Zac Efron is hot
  • You should grow up, life is not college
  • Zac Efron is hot
  • When your best friend(s) gets married or falls in love, you don’t have to feel left out – they would still love to have you there (third wheeling or being say, a maid of honor)
  • When you do the right thing, it pays off – sometimes, literally; in money buckets
  • Your cannot control kids, the belong to LIFE (Boom!)

Moreover, this movie shows all the homophobes out there that a homosexual guy can still be (best) friends with a straight guy. It exists and you shouldn’t be so paranoid and narrow-minded about it. Chill, no one’s going to rape you.

Two, this movie caters to those female college students that are not bimbos and hoes. They Exist. Somehow, college movies always classifies the girls into either lifeless church nerds or straight dumb b*tches. This movie is an Easy-A kind of college-movies that show girls who love to party but don’t need those 7-minutes-in-heaven and tequila-punches kind of parties.

Also, (unlike Hollywood movies in the 90s) the three girls starting the sorority (or is it Sorortity?) are not all blonde; one is blonde, the other is African American and the third one is ‘fine’ looking and overweight. They’re all cool. The blonde is still the dominant leader, but they’re all best friends and there is no bossing around. I love that Hollywood is shifting the 90s stereotypes and being more real.

 

Enjoy the strip!
Much Love!

Movie Reviews M

I’ve always been into movies and acting since I was a little kid. I remember I was in perhaps the most engaging schools in Lebanon when I was young. I was a ballet dancer at 9, then when I was 10 I taught choreography to the younger elementary students and I stood in front of them while they performed it infront of the whole school during the “FunDay” at school. I wrote a script for a program similar to a TV program at the time, but I couldn’t act in it and I’m not sure the other students did it because I had a family trip to Turkey. When I was in high school I acted in two major plays where I was the main actress, and somehow after that I kept this interest dormant. I believed I was good in acting but I didn’t really work on myself much in terms of not education – but observation. I still did gym, took a lot of workshops in acting and self-development or marketing, acted in a lot of senior movies, and watched a lot of movies at the movie theatre. Still, I don’t consider myself that knowledgeable in movies. I haven’t seen all the best movies and that’s what I am about to start. I recently got as much of 50 DVS that I will start sharing with the internet for whomever would be searching its titles for reviews. I hope you find them handy. Just like everything ive done in my life so far, this is not for attention. This is a personal Movies Review with some of the best DVDs I have picked with the help of those passionate – so that I’ll be going back to my personal opinion about every movie I watch.

Age of Adeline

Not sure if it’s only me, but Blake Lively looked more ravishing than Ever in this movie. To be quite honest, I was always more of a Blair Waldorf fan than a Serena fan in GG but Blake certainly was a jaw-drop in this specific movie.

|A young woman, born at the turn of the 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After many solitary years, she meets a man who complicates the eternal life she has settled into.|

Being forever young is our dream. However, while watching this movie, it made more sense to grow old – especially with your loved ones. In the movie, Adeline changes her identity every decade so that she wouldn’t be questioned by the authorities. She falls in love once, but has to run away due to the fact that she cannot confess her reality to her lover. Small world it is, she falls in love after years with the son of the same man she loved first. Scared from change, she gets the same dog over and over again – and keeps a catalogue of the pictures all the dogs she adopted throughout the years.

Come to think about it, even living long is not worth it if you’re going to lose one day all the people and souls you care for. Investing your emotions again and starting over again and again is draining. Stability somehow makes more sense. Living long will only make sense if its for all. Not sure if immortality is truly worth it anyways, maybe being mortal is what keeps us enthusiastic about life.

What do you think?
