  • Neighbors 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Jul, 2014

    Really solid comedy.

    Zach Efron is surprisingly the best part of the movie. Rose Byrn as always is great to watch and the other Franco keeps going with his super sensitive comedy shtick.

It's ambiguous in it's meaning, it has no plot, it's main character has a lot of…

    Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs, Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction. Quentin Tarantino's filmography reads like a symphony of revenge, blood, sam jackson and laughs. His latest entry, also a two word title, is Django Unchained. And it may be his best movie yet.

    Revenge has really taken a hold of QT's writing as of late. He seems to really get inspiration from these characters that are hell bent on hell sending. If you thought the protagonist in Kill Bill was…
