In Fear
In Fear (2014)
1 day ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

In Fear is a well made and unique horror film thanks to its minimalistic approach and tense screenplay. The plot and setting are simple, but the execution is what makes this worthwhile. I was actually getting uncomfortable at times because of how tense this film can get. Revealing anything would give away the plot that slowly reveals itself. It's not going to knock your socks off, but again it is effective and well done. The acting is a little shaking in spots, but nothing terrible. Overall, this worth a trip if you like your horror films to have a little thought to them rather than splatter gore all over the screen.

Neighbors
Neighbors (2014)
1 day ago via Rotten Tomatoes

While Neighbors is fairly entertaining, it goes so far over the top at times that I was disgusted more so than laughing. Seth Rogen is his typical self here, but Zac Efron is surprisingly well-matched in this with him. I found Efron the funniest. Rose Byrne looks nice, but her and Rogen don't have much chemistry and the relationship isn't really believable. Dave Franco continues to do well in smaller roles. The rest of the cast doesn't do much. I really was going to give this a rather positive review, but the last 10 minutes completely undermine everything that came before it. Therefore, I'm lukewarm on my feelings for this. Those that like the hard R comedies will love this. I'm not usually too keen on them, but occasionally I find one I like (Superbad for example).

Draft Day
Draft Day (2014)

While not really plausible and lacking the emotional connection it is striving for, Draft Day is nonetheless a fun and effective movie about the NFL draft and all of the craziness involved. It's cool to sort of get a view of the draft from a perspective other than as a fan. Kevin Costner is his usual self as the general manager: likable and effective, but doesn't knock it out of the park. The supporting cast is filled in nicely by Denis Leary as the coach, Jennifer Garner as the girlfriend, Frank Langella as the team owner, Ellen Burstyn as Costner's widowed mother, and Arian Foster &Chadwick Boseman as a draft prospects. This film has funny parts, exciting moments, and just gets enough right that I found myself enjoying it despite the flaws and leaps in logic of plenty of the people involved in the ridiculous trades that occur. Recommended for the entertainment factor if you like football, but probably not worth it otherwise.

Gone Girl
Gone Girl (2014)

½

David Fincher continues his streak of excellent adult dramas with Gone Girl. The performances are fantastic across the board, but Rosamund Pike especially. Without spoiling anything, lets just say her performance is one that will be remembered. She nails it out of the park. Ben Affleck gives one of his best turns as the husband while the supporting cast is ably filled by Tyler Perry as the lawyer, Carrie Coon as the husband's sister, Neil Patrick Harris as a creepy ex-boyfriend, and Kim Dickens as the investigator for the case. Every character is memorable. You really can't say much about this film without giving plot points away, which I think would take away from the enjoyment of the movie. I'll just say it has plenty of surprises in store and some scenes that I will remember forever. There should be plenty of Oscar attention for this one hopefully.
