‘Neighbors’ Review

It's hell getting old. You're overworked, underpaid, get grey hairs, everything hurts, there's barely time for sex, you fall asleep on the couch watching 'Game of Thrones' and, unless you're George Clooney, you're just not cool anymore. You either hike up your pants and accept it, or you wage all out war. It's the latter that highlights the uproarious Seth Rogen and Zac Efron comedy 'Neighbors,' which just might be the funniest American movie since ... well, since Seth Rogen's last movie.

Disney Chairman Admits They’re Struggling With the Decision to Move ‘Captain America 3′ Away From ‘Batman vs. Superman’

The Marvel vs. DC dynamic has always been an interesting one, and it got a lot more interesting when 'Batman vs. Superman' plopped down on May 16, 2016, a release date already claimed by Marvel for 'Captain America 3.' Which one would blink first and move out of the way?

To this point, both sides have remained steadfast (Marvel president Kevin Feige recently said, "We’re certainly keeping the date"), but there might be some cracks in the veneer as Disney Chairman Alan Horn admits they're "struggling" with the decision about whether or not to movie 'Captain America 3' out of the way of the 'Batman vs. Superman' juggernaut.
