With the official start of “Hollywood’s Summer” merely weeks away on May 4, we discuss which potential blockbusters we’re looking forward to most this Summer. Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises were front runners, but what about The Avengers or Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom?
Plus, Springtime seems to be sparking more and more love for New York Film Academy. Many of our followers are signing up for classes, while others are counting the days until their first day.
Finally, we highlighted our guest speaker, Rocky director John G. Avildsen. With an Academy Award for Best Picture, Rocky is arguably one of the greatest boxing movies of all time. Is it the best of all time? Our Facebook fans debated. Eh em, Raging Bull?
Thanks again to our wonderful @NYFA followers! Keep following us and maybe you will be highlighted.
Acting allows you to live other people’s lives without having to pay the price. - Robert De Niro.
This past week followers such as @vdvalor, @hollywood_trey, and @putyrdreams1st shared their favorite TV show movie adaptations. We especially loved how @ljfrack wants the Arrested Development film out right now. Can you blame her? Moreover, we posted our Top 5 Robert De Niro movies of all time and received a slew of opinions. @abuthabt007 and many others were riled over The Deer Hunter exclusion and our Facebook fans were abuzz with their own favorites. Amusingly, some of the films didn’t even feature Robert De Niro on the cast! Reservoir Dogs? As always, we appreciate fine folks like @KarinnePatricia and @agnesagathia sharing with us their journey as newly minted #NYFA students. Those are the type of tweets we absolutely live for!
