Blink and it’s almost June, which will mark the halfway point of yet another unusual year.
When you do, I’ve got some suggestions for you right here.
Three things to watch
‘Army of the Dead’
Zack Snyder and zombies. If that intrigues you, this Netflix film starring Dave Bautista, Omari Hardwick and Tig Notaro is for you.
When I first heard about it, I thought, “OK. ‘Oceans Eleven’ with the undead. Got it!”
The movie is already in theaters and out on Netflix Friday.
Jennifer and Sarah Hart seemed to have the perfect family.
It’s currently streaming on Discovery+.
‘Master of None’ Season 3
After a four-year absence, his hit series, “Master of None,” is returning to Netflix — with a flipped script. The new season will focus on the character of Denise (played by Lena Waithe), BFF of Dev (Ansari’s character), and her love, Alicia (played by Naomi Ackie).
Season three starts streaming Sunday on Netflix.
Two things to listen to:
“I love pop-punk music; I love grunge music; I love country music and folk music. I think, honestly, you can see little influences of all of those genres in my album,” she said. “And I didn’t want to make an entire record that sounded like ‘Drivers License.’ There’s no fun in that for me — and probably not for listeners, either.”
The album drops Friday.
Speaking of incredibly talented female singers, Pink does it like no one else — and she’s blessing us doubly this time around.
Not only is her album “All I Know So Far” set to debut Friday, it’s the companion to her new documentary of the same name.
It’s truly a family affair watching Pink — along with her husband, Carey Hart, and their kids, Willow and Jameson — on the road in Europe during her “Beautiful Trauma Tour,” which ran from 2018 to 2019.
The doc drops on Amazon Prime the same day as the album.
One thing to talk about:
Live music really is coming back.
Rock on, party people.
Something to sip on
While we are on the topic of the pandemic, is it that it changed the world or merely hastened the inevitable?
One big takeaway is the group known as Generation Z (those born between 1997 and 2012) list watching television and movies at home as their fifth favorite activity.
Which begs the question, how is Hollywood planning to step up and serve this younger generation that’s signaling they can’t be counted on to station themselves in front of a traditional streaming service or hang out in a theater? Perhaps it’s time for Tinseltown to step up its game when it comes to producing video-game movies.
