LIH Editorial 3/24-3/30

24 Mar

Well it’s that time of year again:


Yes, for many high school and college students, this is the time of year to unload all their crazy and inhibations in exotic locations.  Smart? No, but it is reality.  On Friday, Spring Breakers opened nationwide.  Rottentomatoes gave it a 70% on the critics scale and a 67% from consumers.

From rottentomatoes:

“Brit (Ashley Benson), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Cotty (Rachel Korine) and Faith (Selena Gomez) have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a boring college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun. A serendipitous encounter with rapper “Alien” (James Franco) promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget.”

(Hmmm…Is it just us or is The Host trying to draw in the Twilight fans with a romantic male lead who looks like he could be related to Robert Pattinson?)

    Hmm! The Host really looks like a made for television movie. GI Joe. Why? I will pass on both films.

      You know, I have to agree with you for a television movie for The Host. There aren’t too many movies I want to see right now, except The Croods. It seems like slim pickings.

    1. Maybe I’m just too square, but I really don’t understand Vanessa Hudgens game plan.

    • Leaked nude photos in 2009
    • A significant appearance well-known Disney franchise
    • A high profile romance with another former teen actor
    • And recently an appearance in every and any movie she can get in

    I’ll get some cool lessons and maybe comment later.

    2. Two female Cinefiles I know claim disinterest in a film where women kick a lot of butt. Is Hollywood getting their signals crossed?

    3. I wish weird colored contacts were enough to get me to buy movie tickets. The last time Stephanie Meyer’s had a lead heroine say something like “I would rather die”. That’s exactly what Meyers delivered. This time I think I’ll stick on the more productive side of living. My first demonstration of living commitment will be missing this movie.

    This is unfortunate for this site; yet here’s another vote for missing the movies this weekend.
