Fall Movie Season: October 2010

filmreel

It’s October and the theme of the month is Halloween, scary movies, and the paranormal. If that’s not your cup of tea, there are some feel good movies and action movies coming out this month as well. Opening the month is “The Social Network”, which has been garnering some buzz. “Case 39” stars Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover”) and Renee Zellweger which is one the scary/horror films of the month.

Stepping away from the scary/horror films, then you want to turn to some family films like “Life As We Know It” and Disney’s “Secretariat”. Based upon the true story of the last Triple Crown winning horse, can Secretariat score the numbers that Seabiscuit garnered? I guess we shall see.

Also gaining some good feedback is “Red” based upon the D.C. Comics graphic novel by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner. Academy Award winner, Helen Mirren, wields a large automatic weapon in the trailer. It’s either going to be awesome or an epic fail.

I believe the potential blockbusters of the month will be a scary/horror film. Could it be a sequel, such as “Saw 3D” or “Paranormal Activity 2” or possibly “My Soul to Take” from Wes Craven, director of the “Scream” film franchise.

My spotlight pick of the month is “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” adapted from Ned Vizzini’s 2006 novel of the same name and the film stars Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover”). Looks to be an offbeat and quirky dramedy (drama/comedy) with possible tear jerking moments.

Well that’s my October overview, click on the link below to check out the rest of the movies coming out this month and check back next month for more Fall Movie Season picks.

The 64th annual Tony Awards were held on June 13, 2010. Sean Hayes hosted the venue and was quite a performer opening the show with a piano medley and accompanied some of the nominated show’s cast while they performed a song from their respective shows. A lot of first time nominees won their respective categories and the Hollywood stars swept most of the Tony Awards. Scarlett Johannson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Denzel Washington won their categories but the top honors went to “Memphis” for winning Best Musical and “Red” for winning Best Play.

One of the highlights of the awards ceremony were performances by Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison from “Glee”. Matthew Morrison performed All I Need Is The Girl from “Gypsy”. Lea Michele performed Don’t Rain On My Parade from “Funny Girl”. Morrison and Michele are no strangers to the stage as both were nominated for Tony’s before. Lea Michele for “Spring Awakening” and Matthew Morrison for a fantastic performance in “The Light in the Piazza”. If you missed their performance or want to watch it again, click on the link below to see the video from the 2010 Tony Awards as well as some of the winners of the night.

Smallville Season 9: “Rabid”

“Smallville” meets “Supernatural” is how I describe “Rabid” which is the third episode of the season. Lois and Clark fighting against zombies? It kind of reminds me of the first season of “Smallville” where Clark would have to face a new meteor “freak” every episode, “freak of the week” if you will. I must say, I was expecting a little more from this episode because the “Rabid” promo implied that Lois and Clark would go on a date, but sadly that did not happen. However, the episode further explored the Lois/Clark/Red Blue Blur love triangle that is still unfolding while Oliver Queen and Major Zod have returned in this episode as well.

**SPOILERS AHEAD**
