Ready, set, go… April is here and along with it comes “Furious 7” who would probably sweep theaters around the world. But aside from furious films, we have touching ones, and humorous ones, and captivating ones and… well, you know the deal. On top of that, if you roll down to our TV section you’ll find some highly recommended new TV shows this month. Let’s see how April is gonna look and sound like, these are April’s Finest!
Furious 7 – For the ultimate exciting boys’ night.
The Longest Ride – For the ultimate girls’ night and/or date night.
Unfriended – For the ultimate scary teens night.

Maybe, after 44 years on this ludicrous planet, settling for happyish is the best one can expect.

- Who? The cast is led by Steve Coogan (replacing Philip Seymour Hoffman who was supposed to be the star of the show), Kathryn Hahn, and Bradley Whitford.

2012 has ended, and guess what? Some of us are still alive. So, now that we all feel like we got a (nice enough) chance of continuing our lives (unless those Mayans were only mistaken by a month or so), it’s time to look forward to 2013 and guess which movies and TV shows will be the very best of this upcoming year:
10. Peaky Blinders
An epic, gangster saga, this series is produced by the BBC, starring Cillian Murphy and Sam Neill. It takes place around 1919 and deals with gangs fighting each other for survival.
Best case scenario: It will be Britain’s improved version of Boardwalk Empire.
Worst case scenario: It will be extremely slow and boring.
9. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
The first movie was smart and fascinating, and not only for a teen-oriented audience.
Best case scenario: It will be as suspenseful, clever and exciting.
Worst case scenario: It will be more teen-oriented (or dumbed down, if you prefer).
8. Da Vinci’s Demons
Judging from the trailer, Starz’ new series looks like a blast. It’s visually impressive, with some exciting action scenes, though I’m not really sure if it’s truly loyal to anything that could have happened in reality (it’s supposed to be about Leonardo Da Vinci’s life, not a hybridization of The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons…)
Best case scenario: It will be as genius as its main protagonist.
Worst case scenario: It will suck more badly than The Da Vinci Code.
7. Man of Steel
Probably the most anticipated movie of 2013, millions (billions?) are crossing their fingers, hoping that this Superman movie will meet its great expectations. Zack Snyder is the director and Christopher Nolan is involved, so we can at least be sure it will be dark & visually stunning.
Best case scenario: It will be better than Christopher Reeve’s Superman movies.
Worst case scenario: It will be as good as Zack Snyder’s latest film – Sucker Punch.
6. The Americans
Keri Russell stars in FX’s new series that takes place during the 80′s when the Cold War was still going on. It’s about Soviet KGB officers functioning as a sleeper cell, while living undercover as American citizens. Guest appearance by Anna Chapman. Not really…
Best case scenario: It will be a new & improved Homeland.
Worst case scenario: It will be as suspenseful as Felicity.
5. Gangster Squad
Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling play two law enforcers from the LAPD, trying to bring down some tough gangsters, including Mickey Cohen (portrayed by Sean Penn). For the movie’s director, Ruben Fleischer, this will be the first serious movie he makes (both in tone and in quality I hope), after the amusing Zombieland and the terrible 30 Minutes or Less.
Best case scenario: It will be better than The Untouchables.
Worst case scenario: It will be on par with the dull Public Enemies.
4. House of Cards
After Lilyhammer, comes Netflix’s second original series and it sure looks impressive. Created by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey, this series has a lot of star power behind it. It’s based on a critically acclaimed, award winning British TV show of the same title from 1990.
Best case scenario: It will be better than the original House of Cards.
Worst case scenario: It will remind us of the last time Kevin Spacey was involved in something related to cards (21).
3. Oz: The Great and the Powerful
James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz star in what seems to be an unconventional take on The Wizard of Oz – focusing on the wizard this time. The trailer looks beautiful, as well as the cast.
Best case scenario: It will be the best Wizard of Oz adaptation.
Worst case scenario: It will be like a family friendly version of HBO’s Oz.
2. Zero Dark Thirty
Kathryn Bigelow must be the manliest female director that ever existed (including the Wachowski brother turned sister). Following her nail-biting of a movie about a bomb squad, The Hurt Locker, this movie deals with the manhunt after Osama Bin-Laden.
Best case scenario: It will be better than The Hurt Locker.
Worst case scenario: Its 2.5 hours duration will make the viewers’ feel like they too were hunting him for 10 years.
1. Anchorman 2
Most of the cast from the hilarious previous film will return for the sequel, but there’s at least one major addition to the cast: The funniest woman in the world, Kristen Wiig! What can you expect from a movie with the funniest woman and man (Will Ferrell of course) in the world? You can expect it to be the funniest movie in the world (ever)!
Best case scenario: The Godfather and Casablanca will be regarded as only decent movies in comparison to Anchorman 2.
Worst case scenario: It will be established as the second best movie ever made, after Anchorman of course.
