Stars: Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne
Plot: A 30-something couple tries to keep up with the fraternity that has moved in next door, but things go wrong in a hurry.
Clint Says: Rent this DVD soon...if you can handle the raunch
NEIGHBORS is seriously funny. It is also seriously raunchy. It is also a great movie. If you can handle the raunch you will be entertained the entire time and you will laugh more in two hours than you've laughed in the last month.
Rogen and Byrne's chemistry is fun to watch and their dialogue is hysterical. Efron plays a perfect frat boy and, if a shirtless Zac is your thing, you won't be disappointed.
It's nice to see Rogen and Efron sticking to their roots, but still growing with the kind of characters we've grown to love and expect out of them.
Stars: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson
Plot: A loner tries to track down the men that stole his car while traveling with the brother of one of the thieves.
Clint Says: It's worth a rental, but it's an acquired taste
Robert Pattinson gives an Oscar-worthy performance alongside Guy Pearce in this very strange, post-apocalyptic road trip flick. He won't be nominated, because the film isn't that great and it's been too long since its release for Hollywood to remember, but he should be.
This movie is off the beaten path, so casual moviegoers will probably not like this film, but those willing to sit through it will be treated to the best performance of Robert Pattinson's career.
THE ROVER is gritty, violent and messy with long stretches that barely move the plot forward and the payoff is polarizing. Some people will be very happy with the ending while others will be saying, "he did all of that for THAT!?"
If you are into film that stray from the typical Hollywood formula, you may enjoy this film.
