After answering “The Call” last week from “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone,” who tried but failed to steal the magic from “Oz the Great and Powerful,” we’re left to wonder what scintillating spring days at our local movie theater will bring. Moviegoers, luckily, will find the “Admission” fee well worth it, as our favorite comedic councilor, in the form of comedic queen Tina Fey, deals with college rules, family drama and the invasion of those troublesome “Spring Breakers.” Speaking of families, “The Croods” add a little prehistoric animation to the big screen as the displaced household searches for a new dwelling in a strange land. Fortunately, they quickly find a home in Hollywood, where they’re always welcoming to odd tourists with unique talents. The cartoonish clan will blend in nicely among the colorful Tinseltown residents, who learn “Olympus Has Fallen” but remains well protected thanks to a fallen presidential guard who rises to the occasion to defend all movie characters, big and small. A rejected young soldier in Vietnam is determined to regain the affection of his girlfriend back home while doing his part to carry “Love and Honor” to the world of movies.
Following in the glow still inhabiting last week’s movie road paved in brick and gold, our week ahead is looking promising! There’s a road trip, spring break, wars of the political kind as well as the heart occurring on the home front and foreign lands, animation and admission for everyone!
What’s on your cinematic road map?
