Neighbors – movie rundown

 

neighbors (1)I recently visited Williamsburg movie theatre to watch the film Neighbors starring Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, Dave Franco and Rose Byrne.

I had high (ish) hopes for this movie, just like I do with all of Rogen’s creations. I was aware that Zac Efron was also starring so I wasn’t overly optimistic about this being in the same league as Pineapple Express of Superbad. But, I remember feeling the same way about 21 Jump street and I absolutely love that movie and Channing Tatum, although unexpected, does a great comedic job in that film so I thought maybe Efron could maybe pull some similar skills out of the bag.

I am going to keep this short and sweet.

I found the film to have some really funny parts, and Dave Franco is hilarious but Zac Efron is just not cool. I get why he is in the movie, but it didn’t feel like he wanted to shake off his cool hot guy image enough to get funny and loose if you know what I mean. BUT he is hot and I did really enjoy seeing him without his top on, so all was not lost haha (Yes I know, Im a perv…get over it haha)

Mint Condition

Song of the day! (not to be missed bonus clip too!)

Today my song of the day is from the amazing Mint Condition, who I am seeing at BB king’s Blues Bar on Friday. I could not be more excited, I am a fairly new fan but have definitely made a point of brushing up on as much of the catalogue as I can find!

Black Radio, THE Robert Glasper album (Absolutely banging album, I would highly recommend if you haven’t heard it already) is what led me to this prolific band. Stokley features on what could be the best song on the album (tough call!)

BONUS VIDEO :

See an absolute dream collective in this video above…

Beyonce + Stokley Williams, Chris Dave + Robert Glasper.

This video is amazing for so many reasons but mainly it is so refreshing to see Beyonce in a real musician jam just letting it all go and adlibbing it out! The energy of this video is incredible.
