ENLISTED




Film School Rejects lists "The 8 Must-See Movies of April 2013." 



Cracked ranks "The 4 Least Anticipated Movies of April 2013." Not sure "Oblivion" belongs let alone tops this list. In fact, it was on the list before this one!



Harmony Korine, notorious writer and director of "Spring Breakers," shares his five favorite movies - and I hadn't heard of a single one. It's fitting as general audiences will not have heard of a single one of his films until "Spring Breakers" busted on the scene.



JoBlo has posted their lastest Ten Spot, "Best Unfilmed Stephen King Stories," likely spurred by the newest trailer for the upcoming "Carrie" remake (which you will see covered in this week's Trailer Round-Up). How about we mine this resource before any more remakes? I'll sign that petition.



On a similar note, Adam Charles of Film School Rejects lists "5 Horror Classics That Should Never Be Remade (And 10 That Could Be)." Nice to see "The Cabin in the Woods" already being one of the five. Oh, and it sounds like I really must see "The Monster Squad."

THE GOOD



After the upward progession in the the young "G.I. Joe" series thus far I consider it good news that Paramount has decided to proceed with a third film in the series. (Source: Cinema Blend)

THE BAD




Legendary film critic Roger Ebert passed away at the seasoned age of 70. He was an inspiration to myself and many and a resource to countless others. (Source: The Hollywood Reporter)

AND THE RANDOM




Here's Scott Mendelson with the weekly box office analysis. "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" easily came out on top while "The Host" failed to get off to a good start.




With the week's re-release of "Jurassic Park" Criticwire polled critics as to what was the best Spielberg film. "Jaws" came out on top. Read their post for more. 



On a similar note, of all Spielberg's films Matt Singer would prefer to see "The Adventures of Tintin" in 3D on the big screen.




In this week's Criticwire Survey critic confessed "the dud they love," notoriously bad movies that they actually like. Ed Wood's "Glen or Glenda," a prime suspect, is pictured above.

OR THE COOL




Elvis Mitchell of KCRW's The Treatment food interviews Quentin Tarantino about the power of food in his films. This is mouth-watering and geek-assuring!


* * *

TV TOO



The poster says it all for the highly anticipated season of "Arrested Development" coming exclusively to Netflix.




Marty Scorsese is developing a "Gangs of New York" TV show. I feel it is his most under appreciated (well, maybe after "Shutter Island") film of the 21st Century and look forward to this becoming a reality. (Source: Total Film)
