We are approaching summer and all of its glorious blockbusters. Entering into the height of comic book adaptations over the next couple years. But, a quick look at April… it’s kind of the eye before the storm. We will have to push through the next 30 days as we eagerly await the early May release of Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Let’s have a look at what’s worth watching in April, shall we…
Umm, this is going to be tough…
Going in Style
Oh, Morgan Freeman, America’s Grandpa. Joined by elite actors Michael Caine and Alan Arkin, this group is set to prove again, that age does not equal incompetence. As they risk pension and retirement for the big score of bank robbery. If anyone can make getting old look cool, this is a trio that will pull it off. Senior citizen movies are getting, well, old, but still worth a watch. And better than most our options this month.
How to be a Latin Lover
Another film that has been done countless times with an aging stud losing his prime allure and is persistently trying to earn his groove back. Loaded with some A-list talent like, Selma Hyaek, Kristen Bell, Michael Cera and Rob Lowe, if anything this movie will do its job of entertaining for an hour and a half.
Adam Sandler continues his deal with Netflix with this original Happy Madison film. So far, the Netflix romp has been less than exciting with a couple big flops. Does Sandler have anything left in him for one more great comedy. Probably not, but growing up on Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison I still hold on to hope and will give this movie a chance.
Emma Watson and Tom Hanks star in this adaptation of Dave Eggers 2013 bestselling novel. Themed in the modern era of technology and social media, this film has every opportunity to be a fascinating watch. I am definitely interested to see how this one turns out. Also, John Boyega. So, yeah.
What little has been seen of this movie thus far looks rad. A street magician goes above and beyond in his efforts to support his little sister after they were orphaned. Supernatural abilities seem to come into play, and with the tight budget many have compared this movie to 2012’s surprise hit Chronicle. There is only one way to find out if this one has equal pay-off. Watch it.
Thanks booknerds, I’ll be here waiting for May to pay the big box office ticket prices.
