Spring Movie Season: April 2012

filmreel

Before the Summer Movie Season kicks off, there is still some time to catch some Spring movies. So what can you expect from April? Some comedic films and suspense thrillers hit theaters this month as well as an epic movie blockbuster returns but this time in 3D. Opening the month is James Cameron’s “Titanic in 3D”, will it sink or swim to higher box office numbers? The American Pie crew return for “American Reunion”. It could be a hit or a big flop.

“The Cabin in the Woods” co-written by Joss Whedon (“Buffy the Vampire
Slayer”) and stars Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”). In what was suppose to be a simple getaway amongst friends takes an unexpected turn. Guy Pearce (“Memento”) and Maggie Grace (“Lost”) star in “Lockout”, a sci-fi thriller where a man has to save the president’s daughter in exchange for his freedom. Moe, Larry, and Curly make their way from the small screen to the big screen in “The Three Stooges” movie. Looking for a Spring date movie? Perhaps check out “The Lucky One” starring Zac Efron (“17 Again”) and Taylor Schilling (“Dark Matter”) based on the Nicholas Sparks book of the same name.

My spotlight picks of the month are Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope and “The Five-Year Engagement”. From the director of “Supersize Me”, Morgan Spurlock, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope is a documentary centering around the famed Comics convention. Jason Segal (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) and Emily Blunt (“The Young Victoria”) star in “The Five-Year Engagent”, which looks like its going to be funny but yet sweet. Segal also co-wrote the screenplay.

Well that’s my April 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 Summer 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.

67th Golden Globe Nominations

Source: Hollywood Foreign Press Association

The 2009 Golden Globe Nominations were revealed today, December 15, 2009, and the awards ceremony will air on January 17, 2010 and will be hosted by Golden Globe winner Ricky Gervais. There are a few freshman nominees which is very exciting and familiar nominees. Starting off with the Movie nominations. Avatar will be released in theaters on December 18, 2009, and if it didn’t look amazing enough – I’m sure a Golden Globe nomination for Best Drama would not hurt to boost some box office numbers. Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon were nominated for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for Invictus. They were truly the shining stars in that film, so the nominations are much deserved. Matt Damon is also nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy for The Informant!. Between Invictus and The Informant!, I think I enjoyed Damon’s performance in The Informant! more. A huge thumbs up from me for Sandra Bullock for being a dual nominee for Best Actress in a Drama for The Blind Side and Best Actress in a Comedy for The Proposal. Also special kudos to (500) Days of Summer for getting a Best Picture – Comedy nomination.

On to the Television nominations. Fox’s freshman hit Glee has four nominations including Best Television Series (Musical or Comedy). Not too shabby for its first year out of the gates. ABC’s freshman comedy Modern Family was also nominated for Best Television Series (Musical or Comedy). The question is, can a freshman comedy beat 30 Rock which won the Golden Globe for Best Television Series (Musical or Comedy) last year? In terms of Television Nomination snubs, I am surprised that there wasn’t any Grey’s Anatomy love. I would’ve thought that Chandra Wilson and/or Sandra Oh would’ve received an acting nomination.

Are you watching “Glee”?

The official series premiere of “Glee” took place on September 9, 2009. In an effort to promote the show, there was a director’s cut of the preview episode of “Glee”, which aired a week before the premiere. The preview episode was first aired in May following an episode of “American Idol” in order to generate more buzz for the show.

I found the series premiere of “Glee” to be just as enjoyable as the preview episode and in my opinion there is still a lot of potential for the show to grow a bigger audience. According to the LA Times, the series premiere of “Glee” brought in 7.3 million viewers! According to Entertainment Weekly, the show has now been picked up for a full season.

Essentially this show is like a musical for the small screen. I wouldn’t put “Glee” in the same category of Disney’s “High School Musical”, although I can see how some people may think that. “Glee” is a dramedy (drama + comedy) focusing on the students and the teachers. In my opinion the song choices/performances in the episodes help drive the story line or at least provide some comedic relief.

So what is “Glee” about? Well, there are your common High School cliques on the show: jocks, cheerleaders, individualists, etc. However, at the bottom of the High School social food chain is the Glee club. Although at one time in the school’s history the Glee Club was the coolest group to be part of. As the glee club funds hang on by a thread and are in danger of being cut, there is one teacher, Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) who believes he can make the glee club as great as it once was. There aren’t many people behind Mr. Schuester’s vision except for a guidance counselor, Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays), who happens to have a crush on Mr. Schuester who isn’t exactly happily married. None would want the glee club to fail more than the cheerleader coach, Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), who continually schemes for the demise of the glee club. As for the glee club members, the group is quirky but together they are trying to prove that their talent transcends their social status.

So far I really like what the show tries to touch upon. High School is awkward time and sometimes it isn’t as easy as it is for some people. I’m not just talking about academically, but more of social acceptance. I like how the show is exploring real topics that are prevalent in today’s youth(s) including: sexuality, acceptance, etc. Although I feel the overall message that music brings these youths together for a greater purpose is something everybody can relate to. If only some of that optimism would spill into reality, who knows what can be accomplished. It makes me think about the Olympics. Two weeks out of the year, the countries of the world are united as the world watches. It’s an amazing thing if you think about it. 🙂
