Without even realizing it, I watched three movies starring Dave Franco in a short period of time. He’s never the main star, yet, but I see a bright future for this guy. Although he isn’t as good as his brother James, and he probably never will, he’s not bad to watch. So here are three movies starring Dave Franco.
Now You See Me
Director: Louis Leterrier
Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Mélanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine
Description: An FBI agent (Mark Ruffalo) and an Interpol detective (Mélanie Laurent) track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money.
Opinion: It’s visually an amazing movie, but the director doesn’t have great tricks up his sleave. It’s all very predictable and not all the characters get the attention they deserve.
Favorite character: Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent)
Most memorable quote: “Whatever is about to follow, whatever this grand trick is, is really going to amaze. Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you'll actually see”. –Thaddeus Bradley-
Best scene: The opening scene, where we meet the four horsemen.
Genre: Horror/ Thriller/ Comedy
Director: Craig Gillespie
Cast: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots, David Tennant, Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Description: Charlie (Anton Yelchin) suspects that his new neighbor Jerry (Colin Farrell) is a vampire.
Opinion: Definitely not bad for a remake. My brother is a huge fan of the original and was pleasantly surprised by this one. It’s a very enjoyable horror, with little touches of subtle humor in it.
Favorite character: Peter Vincent (David Tennant)
Most memorable quote: “That is a terrible vampire name. Jerry?” –Charlie Brewster-
Best scene: Jerry is asking Charlie if he has some beer for him. By this time Charlie is doubting his friend’s stories, that Jerry is a vampire. While Charlie is getting the beer out of the fridge, Jerry is standing outside. But Charlie doesn’t invite him inside, because if he is a vampire that would give him all access.
Director: Nicholas Stoller
Cast: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Description: Kelly and Mac (Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen) are settling down in a quiet neighborhood with their newborn child, until a fraternity moves into the house next door.
Opinion: A good comedy that managed to make me cry of laughter. Both verbal and physical humor, great comedic performances by Rogen, Byrne and Efron.
Favorite character: Mac Radner (Seth Rogen)
Most memorable quoteL “He puts his dick in your mouth while you were asleep!” –Pete- “I wasn’t asleep.” –Assjuice- Best scene: The fight between Mac and Teddy.
