Nicholas Stoller's Neighbors, starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron is a film I found short on laughs and long on annoying. It was weird, I normally like Rogen, but the poorly written dialogue between him and Rose Byrne annoyed the fuck out of me. As for Efron, he didn't annoy me as much as Rogen which was a bit of a surprise, but I'm still not a fan. The story of the "old" couple with a baby versus the college…
Picnic at Hanging Rock is director Peter Weir's breakthrough Australian drama. It's a film with a mesmerizing atmosphere and dream like story. Sadly I didn't like it as much as I thought I would.

Quentin Tarantino has had my attention since the very first time I saw Pulp Fiction. It was the first film I ever saw where one of the first words that came to mind was masterpiece! It was my first Tarantino, I've seen everything he's directed since and I've been impressed every damn time. In my opinion he simply doesn't make bad films.

Looper is easily the best film I've seen this year! I loved everything about it! I was in awe from start to finish. The directing, performances, and plot are all top notch. Pierce Gagnon pratical steals the show as Cid with the best child performance I've seen since Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
