June Movie Month

By Celine Fu:

Apartment 143 (June 1st, 2012)
A family is haunted by a violent ghost believed to be one of their dead family members; they attempt to resolve the situation by hiring a team of experts from an institution. This movie resembles Paranormal Activity’s camera usage and will probably be very similar to the Paranormal Activity series in every aspect, so it is not recommended to anyone; it’s a waste of time.
High School (June 1st, 2012)
Drugs, thugs, and nudity are basically everything in this high school. On top of that, there are stoned students, more drugs, and a fuming principal who is enforcing a drug test on every student in the school and will expel those students who do not pass. The chaos that will arise is extremely obvious! This is recommended to anyone who would love to laugh at the sexual innuendos and stupidity that drugs induce.
Bel Ami (June 8th, 2012)
An adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s novel brings you the story of the charming, penniless soldier Georges Duroy, played by Robert Pattinson. In the city of Paris, where true power lies in the hands of the wives, not the husbands, George uses his wits and powers of seduction to open doors to bourgeois households and equally bourgeois bedrooms. This is a great choice for fans of Robert Pattinson and Casanova.
Prometheus (June 8th, 2012)
This is a futuristic thriller that largely resembles the movie Predators. A ship is assigned to discover the secret that lies behind an ancient invitation and unknowingly enters a nightmare filled with aliensnakes…And yes, even the alien of a similar species to those in Predators. Nevertheless, this is a good movie choice if you are fascinated by any alien related apocalyptic theories!

Rock of Ages (June 15th, 2012)
The director of Hairspray presents drugs, sex, and rock and roll! Okay, maybe without the drugs, but this movie definitely has quite a bit of sexual activity for a musical, and there are definitely a lot of stars in the cast: Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, etc. The movie also demonstrates the frivolous party life clashed with religious abstinence that was common in 1987.
Brave (June 22nd, 2012)
Brave relates a heartwarming story of a talented, unique girl named Merida, the daughter of King Fergus. A warrior at heart, she defies the feminine customs set upon girls and endeavors to carve her own path of life. As a creation of both Disney and Pixar, this movie is, as usual, comical, but still manages to be touching, just like Up and Wall.E. It
is recommended to everyone!
Storage 24 (June 29th, 2012)
London is in chaos as a military cargo ship carrying highly classified contents, in other word, aliens, crashes. The contents spread throughout the city, which marks the beginning of an intense survival game. It’s thrilling and filled with action; if you are a fan of said traits, watch this movie.
