This week on GeekScholars Movie News, presented by Eclipse Magazine, the crew debuts a new segment called the Casting Competition Challenge where the GeekScholars must attempt to recast classic films in the modern era. On this episode, listen to our picks for who we think should play Brody, Hooper, and Quint if a remake of Jawswere to happen today! Do you agree? Disagree?
And since it’s a brand new month, the GeekScholars take a look at all of the upcoming releases for April, highlighting which ones they are super excited about, and which ones they’ll be collectively skipping.
The first of this year’s two takes on Snow White, Mirror Mirror is a sumptuous visual feast – the trademark of director Tarsem Singh – with enough laughs, action and romance to make it worth a trip to your local multiplex.
Mirror Mirror benefits from the low expectation syndrome, but does not quite overcome it. This is one of those movies where you ask the question, “Why?” Yes, from a purely budget and numbers perspectives you can see why a studio would want to make this film. They got Julia Roberts and re-imagining fairy tales is all the rage now. Especially retailing Snow White.
Our friends at Relativity Media, one of the producers of the upcoming hit Mirror Mirror has given us an Amazing Prize Pack to giveaway. Mirror Mirror, a new twist to the classic Snow White fairy tale, is a family film enjoyable for children and adults of all ages alike. Mirror Mirror opens Friday, March 30th. Check out the Mirror Mirror Facebook Page. You have to check out this week’s episode of Geek Scholars where EclipseMagazine’s very own Michelle does a guest appearance to explain her The Hunger Games review.
The Prize Pack includes:
