This review is not about Zac Efron, Well, almost
I am OD-ing on Zac Efron. And his movies. I am an easy person to please. You just need to play your cards right.
And this guy knows how to do it just by turning up on the screen!
Yes,I have watched the High School Musicals and got inspired to break into a song and dance.
Like all true stalkers, I usually google the actors that catch my attention. It can be their amazing acting skills, or the way their eyes crinkle when they smile, or their six-pack abs or other hundred million things that can catch my attention which leads me down this path towards utilising my limited time into looking up their lives, to know more about them, to find out what other movies they have acted in on their way to immortalization…
But the point of this post is the movie.
Because, hello! Movie review plus a push in the right direction for you when you are contemplating what to do on a Saturday night when the friends are gone and the plates are empty. The glasses are never empty.
This is a good movie for a Saturday night (or any time or any day) – We Are Your Friends.
This was a feel good movie for me. The main characters evolve to what their best can in a span of two odd hours.
The cast was interesting. I have watched Zac Efron and Wes Bently in other movies, but the remaining cast was new to me. This goes to show I need to up my ante for watching more movies.
What I loved about the movie was how the music followed me even after the credits had finished rolling. It was more of EDM. I am not a big fan of EDM. They all sound repetitive to me. But this movie opened up an integral aspect of how this kind of music can be special and mesmerising. Maybe that’s what sets apart one regular DJ from a great one. I have the music from this movie on repeat. So I am OD-ing on the music as well. But hey, it is worth it.
There is one particular scene that was interesting. I guess if you have been intoxicated enough or high on whatever the new high is, you must have experienced this. To see colours in everything. Okay, life is in technicolour but to Become Colours!
The storyline is simple and interesting. A laid-back one, nothing intense. Everyday struggles of everyday people, to have a better life. And how they choose to overcome the struggles. Work for the devil, sell your soul for a quick buck, the usual drama. There is love, life, loss and friendship. The movie is especially easier to understand since they spell out all the important bits. You’ll understand when you watch the trailer.
The leading lady, Emily Ratajkowski (Sophie) is beautiful, hot and definitely google worthy. I am sure other actors are too, but since I limit myself to the offerings of the Pandora’s Box, called the Internet, I choose only couple of actors to stalk. The remainder of the time, I spend watching trailers.
So in my humble opinion, this movie is definitely worth a spin!
I would give it 4 tubs of popcorn!
And one tub while watching the trailer:
And one hanky for the ladies to wipe that drool while watching Zac:
