Spring Films Offer Something For Everyone
By: Will James and Omar Sharif – Staff Writers
Now that spring has officially begun more movies are starting to be released. Movies like 21 Jump Street have already gotten great reviews. 21 Jump Street is an action-comedy based on two guys’ undercover scheme. The film stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who are spectacular throughout the entire movie. They pretend to be undercover cops who try to go in and bust a drug ring. They end up trying to change everything they had done wrong during their high school years.
“The comedy, 21 Jump Street may have been the funniest movie of the year thus far”, surprisingly said by student Eddie Rodzen, who is known to judge and critique most comedy films as lacking humor.
This movie has many things going on at one time. It shows how frantic of a life a teenager in high school could experience while also revealing the type of work undercover cops have to do. 21 Jump Street keeps even those out of high school feeling like they are right back in it. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are the perfect crazy duo to prove it. The movie is rated R for profanity, violence and crude humor. I scored 21 Jump Street a stunning 8 out of 10.
Titanic, a movie that was actually just rereleased to commerate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ship, is another movie definitely worth watching. This movie is among the some of the greatest movies ever made and it is now being rereleased in 3D. Even though lots of people have seen this movie in their own homes, many people are thrilled to see this movie in theaters. When asked about her thoughts on the rereleasing of Titanic, Senior Katie Lindsey had this to say “I absolutely love this movie! Watching this movie in 3D is going to be so exciting, I can not wait to see it.” Also with the rereleasing of Titanic the movie has now surpassed the two million dollar mark in lifetime ticket sales.
Another movie that people are really excited for is The Avengers. This movie idea began to surface after the success of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, and Thor. Even though people were really excited for these movies, there is even more excitement for The Avengers. This movie will have all of the Marvel Superheroes and because of this people like Usman Chaudhry, senior at Centennial, believe that “This movie will be the best one yet. It features all of the heroes that we like plus more.”
If you have been thinking about what movies to see soon 21 Jump Street, Titanic, and The Avengers are all really good movies. These three movies all fall into different categories. 21 Jump Street is an action-comedy while The Avengers is more of just action but if you are not into action movies and you prefer more romantic films then the Titanic is just right for you. These are just a few movies that people really want to see and there are many spring movies worth watching.
