MUSICAL MOVIES

Although Rom-Coms are a sure way to shake off the Sunday Scaries, there's nothing more warm and fuzzy than a solid musical movie complete with singalongs and dance numbers.


remakes

Some movies are so nice they made them twice.  The best remakes offer filmakers to take on a unique vision and allow an audience to discover a new appreciation for classic favorites.


mocumentaries

Mockumentary or mock documentary is a genre of film and television, a parody presented as a documentary recording real life.  These have become all the rage today!


breaking the fourth wall

In movies, when characters acknowledge the presence of the audience, that’s called “breaking the fourth wall.” It can be as simple as staring straight into the camera or as elaborate as speaking directly to the audience.  Which one is your favorite?

HUT, HUT HIKE!  FAMOUS FOOTBALL MOVIES

According to some polls, average American film-goers shy away from movies with subtitles. But we know that North Brunswick Public Library patrons are above-average! So here are  accessible (and wonderfully entertaining!) foreign films for those ready to adventure forth into the bounty of goodness that is World Cinema.


SCANDALOUSLY SUSPENSEFUL TV

Forget the guilt and simply take pleasure in the ridiculously unrealistic drama, mystery, suspense, and romance of these popular television shows. Your jaw will be on the floor after every episode, so clear your calendar until you finish the series!


WORKING FOR THE WEEKEND

Workers of the world, unite! Okay, maybe radical revolution might be going a bit too far. Instead of taking to the streets, how about sitting back on your couch (after a hard day's work, of course) with a loved one (pet or human) or alone (what do I care?) and taking pleasure in watching other people pick up the slack.
