Happy Tuesday from GeekScholars Movie News, presented by Eclipse Magazine. We have a great show for you this week. Since we’ll be covering reviews of both the trailer for Dark Shadows, as well as our thoughts on the new 21 Jump Street movie, we thought it would be appropriate to start the show off by discussing what televisions we think should be made into feature films.
So give the show a listen and let us know what you think! Do you agree with our picks? Do you have some other suggestions? We then close things out, as always, with a whole boatload of quickies, including updates on a variety of fun projects in the works.
We would love to hear from you, so please submit comments or questions to us by writing to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Mail is awesome!
Thanks, as always, to the 440 Alliance for allowing us to use their music!
Every year, it seems like there’s at least one movie that has awful trailers but turns out to be amazing. In 2009, it was The Hangover. Last year, it was Bridesmaids. This year, it’s 21 Jump Street – a fast-paced crude comedy that pulls off its Judd Apatow-like mix of cringeworthy humor and heart with panache!
Schmidt and Jenko are friends and rookie cops who mess up their first arrest. So they are transferred to a special division that sends them back to high school to bust a drug ring. But trying to fit in as students while tracking down the drug source proves more difficult than they imagined.
