A Night at the Roxbury (1998) **REVIEW**

There is always a good time for a little classic film, specially when it’s Monday to cheer you up and remember the good old days when the acting and script was something else. And today we are doing A Night at the Roxbury, a classic from the 90’s.

Steve & Doug Butabi are brothers and they are pretty.. well.. dumb. Their big dream si to get into the Roxbury and start their own club and become big club owners that knows everyone. These brothers are very close and doesn’t take life as serious as their father would like them to do. They work at their father’s plant shop.

Steve is the one you could walk over and Doug have stronger opinions and one day they decide to go out in the world without their fathers help but their plans doesn’t go as planned as they finally got into Roxbury. They try to sell their club idea to Roxbury owner, meets two hookers who they later think are their girlfriends. Steve goes out with Emily but that doesn’t work in the end either. So question is, will anything ever work out for these two dumb witted boys?

Will Ferrell is a required taste in comedy. I usually don’t like his comedy because sometimes he can become too much very quickly. But each to their own. Over all, it’s a funny film with a lot of “on no” moments and you just sit their cover your face in embarrassment. But it’s a cult classic so it will always be loved in it’s own way.

Will Ferrell, Chris Kattan, Michael Clarke Duncan, Loni Anderson, Dan Hedaya, Molly Shannon, Lochlyn Munro and many more.

We Are Your Friends (2015) **REVIEW**

When it comes to choosing your friends and letting them boss you around – isn’t your friends. Letting them tell you what to do and when. That’s what happened in this film. Directed by Max Joseph – co show host of Catfish The Tv Show. Yep. He made a film and he did an excellent job. I loved this film. It’s well written and the actors are good.

Cole and his friends got a simple life and living paycheck by paycheck. Cole got a dream of one day becoming a DJ and play for the big festivals and raves. Til one day he meets James – a famous DJ who offers to mentor Cole and get him to play on one of the biggest festivals. As he works with James he gets in conflicts with his friends and meets a girl – and all is about to crumble down. And top of this – Cole and his friends take a job with real estate and talk to people who just got their house for closed by the bank, he see’s the ugliness in the job and doesn’t like it. So how is Cole going to fix the mess he’s done? One way – music.

Sure we see Zac Efron as Cole and some have told their opinion about it. But the Zac Efron we see in this film is a different one from the one we seen in High School Musical. He grown up. In the film we get to see a few familiar faces and yes I am recommending this film. It’s a good one – it’s long but it’s good. Worth your time.

You see actors like Zac Efron, Wes Bentley, Emily Ratajkowski, Jonny Weston, Shiloh Fernandez, Alex Shaffer, Jon Bernthal, Jon Abrahams and many more.

Straight Outta Compton (2015) **REVIEW**

Straight Outta Compton is a film we can discuss for ages. It gives us an insight on what happened behind the scenes and happened to the guys.

In the mid 80’s a rapper Eazy-E and the boys in NWA (Ice Cube, DR Dre DJ Yella, MC Ren) is making their way in Comtpon, Los Angeles. Trying to survive and make it in the music business. And one day that chance comes. It takes them on a rollercoaster of their lives. When they get stopped just outside their studio because they where “gang bangers” Ice Cube writes one of their iconic songs – Fuck Da Police. And that’s when problems hits. With success comes people who want to stop the success. FBI & police want to stop them from playing it. Do they listen? No. They keep hitting the success button – even they go seperate ways when they see something isn’t right in their contracts.

We see the up and downs of  success of these boys. How it all started and almost came crashing down.

You see actors like O’Shea Jackson Jr, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Neil Brown Jr, Aldis Hodge, Marlon Yates Jr, R Marcos  Taylor and many more.

STEP UP: ALL IN **REVIEW**

We all know this franchise, so many different movies with excellent dancers. When I heard there was another out, I thought “really, another one?” But I saw it and it’s a cool one. You will see old faces in a whole new crew. You really need to see this one.

 

Sean desperately wants to make it as a dancer, but he is going to strong forward and his old crew “The Mob” leave him in L.A to go back to Miami. Now, he meets up with Moose, we all know him, to get a job as Moose  grandparents dancing studio. Before these 2 boys know it, they are agreeing on putting together a crew for a dancing contest called “The Vortex”. It’s here we see old faces in a new crew. Where they meet Sean’s enemy “The Grim Knights”, he wants to beat them and put the ring leader in his spot. He doesn’t count on that his old crew “The Mob” also got a spot in the contest. How will this affect his performance for the contest? When it really counts?

 

If you love the Step Up movies you will like this one. For me, it felt like they could have not done this one, same old story in each movie, almost. But I wouldn’t say that you shouldn’t see it.
