Ah, April. The beginning of spring, baseball season gets going, the weather turns a little bit warmer, and flowers start to bloom. It’s just about the time when those of us who has been going stir-crazy from being inside all of these cold winter months can finally venture outside and get some fresh air. And thankfully, it doesn’t look like the new releases from Netflix next month will do much to hold you back.
Among the cinematic marvels on the schedule for April:
Leprechaun 6: Back 2 tha Hood (2003)
Actually, you can also catch Leprechaun 3 (1995) and Leprechaun 4: In Space this month too, but I’m a fan of anything that takes us back 2 tha hood. Plus, wasn’t this the film franchise that launched Jennifer Aniston’s career?
I’m very confused, because this movie stars Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre.
Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage (2014)
Totally disappointed that this isn’t Sinbad .
The Nutty Professor 2: Facing the Fear (2008)
Such a rip off. I expected to see Eddie Murphy facing the fear of his own bad acting. Instead, it’s animated crap with Jerry Lewis and some kid who was on Nickelodeon like a million years ago.
However, there are some gems leaving in April that mean you should definitely spend the last two weeks of March on your couch:
No offense to Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz and that adorable little girl whose name I can’t say, but the 2014 version doesn’t even compare to the original.
Friday the 13th (1980), Friday the 13th: Part 2 (1981), Friday the 13th: Part 3 (1982), Friday the 13th: Part 4: The Final Chapter (1984), Friday the 13th: Part 6: Jason Lives (1986), Friday the 13th: Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
The movies are literally the reason my brother was able to spend the better part of my childhood freaking me the hell out with his hockey mask. Bastard.
Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)
If you’ve never seen this, you can’t fully understand the tragedy of losing Robin Williams.
Mystic Pizza (1988)
Before she was Pretty Woman, she was a smart ass pizza waitress. Plus, with a one-line role – “Mom, do you want my green stuff?” – this marks Matt Damon’s movie debut.
The Karate Kid (1984), The Karate Kid: Part II (1986) and The Karate Kid: Part III (1989)
I still don’t understand what waxing a car has to do with kicking someone’s ass, but pretty much everything else Mr. Miyagi says is right on the money.
