Film Review: The Boy Next Door (Universal Pictures)

ReviewAlexa RabiniComment

Film: The Boy Next Door // Genre: Thriller // In Theaters: January 23, 2015 (USA)
Directed By: Rob Cohen // Screenplay By: Barbara Curry // Rated: R // Time: 1hr 31min
Starring:  Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Kristin Chenoweth, Ian Nelson, John Corbett.
Synopsis: When a handsome, charming teenager named Noah (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door, newly separated high-school teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) encourages his friendship and engages in a little bit of harmless -- or so she thinks -- flirtation. Although Noah spends much of the time hanging out with Claire's son, the teen's attraction to her is palpable. One night, Claire gives in to temptation and lets Noah seduce her -- but when she tries to end the relationship, he turns violent.

A movie that was not half bad. Of course, it's your cheesy thriller everybody is going to either love or hate. The reason why I have to give this film 3 stars is for the ending. I'm not one to leave spoilers so all I will say is, it wasn't exactly what I expected even though I had no idea what to expect. So in the end, I enjoyed the ending due to the "twist" they provided for my not sure what will happen mind. It's also hard to watch such a handsome gentleman like Ryan Guzman play such a crazy character, but in the end we all have to remember we are human and each one of us have our own flaws. Kristin Chenoweth was a surprise of the film, I never saw her in the original trailer so seeing her play the best friend was a plus to the film. I've always loved John Corbett since Sex & The City, he did not have very good chemistry with Jennifer but in the end he didn't really need it considering the plot of the movie. Overall, not bad, don't judge this movie by it's cover, the cheesy plot or what the critics say. 

Rating: ★★★ | Best time to see it? Netflix

January Wishlist - Lush Cosmeti

WishlistAlexa RabiniComment

As winter is soon ending, here are a few great products from LUSH that are my must-haves!

There is something special about the brand Lush, is it because it's handmade fresh by humans, has vegan ingredients and not harmful to our skin? 

  1. THE KISS LIP SCRUB
    I've used caster sugar scrubs from lush before but this one has a valentine's day theme with apparently edible hearts! The sweet mandarin flavor and sea salt is exactly what my dry chapped lips need while living here in the desert. If you don't like scrubs, theres also a lip gloss version which is just as moisturizing, and will also give your lips some shine!
     

  2. MARRON HENNA HAIR DYE 
    Another reason I love lush is because I have extremely sensitive skin that I can't even dye my hair without having a terrible allergic reaction. I'm very curious to give Henna a try after my hair stylist Brittany at True Aveda recommend I give it a try. Hopefully soon!
     

  3. UNICORN HORN BATH BOMB
    Made with Lavender, ylang ylang and neroli I can't imagine how perfect this bath bomb is! Who doesn't love the idea that unicorns exist? It also reminds me of my favorite female musician and hero Sherri Dupree Bemis! Her pink hair is magical like this product.
     

  4. SILVER PRODUCT TINS
    Not like I don't have enough tins already but I need more and more for all these great products. It keeps them fresh, they are easy to clean and store. I also love the different sizes for each different product - massage, shower, and butter!
     

  5. HAIR DOCTOR MASK
    Another must have while living in Vegas, hair mask! My scalp is so dry and itchy with my allergies that I always need something to calm and relax it. I was using Aveda for a while but now it just feels like Shampoo. This mask has my favorite ingredient if all time - Peppermint Oil and with coconut and almond oil my hair will be one happy mess!


Five Places I Want To Go To In 2015

Wishlist, New YearAlexa RabiniComment

Inspired by A Beautiful Mess, as I love to travel and hope to see the entire world before I die. Here are some travel goals I have for this year, I doubt I will do all five but hope to at least do two!


1) Orlando, FL - the world of theme parks!

With so many choices to choose from and a gift certificate from a client for a hotel stay, this trip has to happen!

2) Buenos Aires, Argentina - My grandmother's home

Probably not this year but sometime in the future I would like to go to the place where my dad was born and connect with my heritage.

3) Burbank, California - Warner Brother's VIP Studio Tour 

As a huge fan of F-R-I-E-N-D-S, I would love to go take a photo drinking coffee in Central Perk!

4) Cleveland, Ohio - Home of Alternative Press Magazine

I wasn't able to attend last year so I must attend this year as it's my 8th year (Dec '15) working for them!

5) If all else fails, Disneyland in Anaheim, CA!

As a previous Cast Member and fan of Olaf, I can't help but want to check out this movie takeover!
