Summer Movie Season: August 2011

filmreel

The Summer Movie Season is almost over as we go into the last month of summer. How time flies! This month the films are more low-key but there are a few films that may bring in the crowds. Kicking off the the month, Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds star in “The Change-Up” which has a “Freaky Friday” sort of premise where each guy swap lives literally in each other’s body. Also opening is the prequel to “Planet of the Apes”, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” starring James Franco. This film can go either way, but watching the trailer reminds me of the “Gozilla” remake starring Matthew Broderick, which was kind of a bust.

Based upon the best selling novel, “The Help”, makes its way to the big screen. Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, and Academy Award nominee Viola Davis head the cast in what looks to be a poignant yet funny film. From the director of “Zombieland”, “30 Minutes or Less” looks to be a funny film that could be a hit or a miss. Also following in the 3D concert film fad is “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie”. This concert film should be a hit on paper judging on past concert films such as Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus concert, The Jonas Brothers, and Justin Bieber in “Never Say Never”.

Step aside Mr. Schwarzenegger and welcome the new Conan, Jason Momoa, who stars in the remake of “Conan the Barbarian”. The original film came out in 1982, so with all of the advancements in technology the film should have much improved visual effects from the original…the script on the other hand is a different story. I guess we shall see once the reviews come in.

Toward the end of the month, Paul Rudd along with Zooey Deschanel, Elizabeth Banks, Emily Mortimer, and Rashida Jones star in “Our Idiot Brother”, which looks to be a funny film.

My spotlight picks of the month are “One Day” and “The Whistleblower. “One Day” is based upon the best-selling novel by David Nicholls and stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. This film was suppose to open last month but it got pushed to this month. Nonetheless, the book was really good, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it translates to screen. Thus far the trailers look on point. If you haven’t seen the trailers for “One Day” yet, click here to watch both trailers. “The Whistleblower stars Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz, in a film that is based on actual events where a police officer tries to keep the peace in post-war Bosnia but uncovers corruption and cover ups. Looks like an intriguing thriller that already has some Oscar buzz surrounding it.

Well that’s my August overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out this month and check back next month for the start of the Fall Movie Season and my picks of the month. If you’ve seen any of the films from this month…leave some feedback/suggestions in the Comments section on what to see.

‘Glee’ takes on Coldplay

Are you ready to hear some Coldplay on Fox’s hit show “Glee”? Ready or not the band Coldplay has opened their song library to the show. Initially the band said ‘no’ when asked, but it appears they have changed their mind. Considering the popularity of the show, I think it would be quite ludicrous to not have your music showcased on the hit series not just for the exposure factor which is a plus, but in my opinion it is flattering just to be asked.

More Madonna and possibly Britney Spears on “Glee”

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Are you ready for “The Power of Madonna” part 2? According to Entertainment Weekly, Glee’s series creator Ryan Murphy is already in talks with Madonna’s people for another Madonna centric episode which would air early next season. Read more on the Ausiello Files.

Also another idea floating around is a possibility of a Britney Spears episode. Murphy is also entertaining this idea, which started to get buzz after Spears’s manager suggested it on Twitter. Murphy also says that he would want more artist tribute episodes. Some of the artists mentioned were Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, and possibly Courtney Love. Read more on Entertainment Weekly.

I think Britney Spears’s music would fit well into Glee world. Just the right amount of corniness would make it a great episode. Here are some of my song suggestions if such an episode were to air:

“…Baby One More Time”
“(You Drive Me) Crazy”
“Womanizer”
“Oops!…I Did it Again”
“I’m a Slave 4 U”
“Toxic”

Thoughts?
