Movie HYPE: Jersey Boys

For the first time since 1988's Bird, Clint Eastwood is at the helm of a blockbuster music-themed biopic.  This time the subject is the legendary pop group Four Seasons, and their inimitable frontman Frankie Valli.  Set in 1960s New Jersey and New York, the film looks to put just as much focus on the birth of the famed "Jersey Sound", as well as the mob activity that impacted it.  The first trailer for Jersey Boys was released last week, and it is definitely something worth keeping an eye one.

Noisepaper Approved Movie: Beach Balls (1988)

Beach Balls is a classic 1960's "beach party" film, via unmistakable late 80's excess. That is to say that it is chock full of scattershot plot, cartoonish characters, gratuitous nudity and profanity, and above all just plain fun in the sun. Not to mention the hair-metal soundtrack courtesy of fictional band 'Severed Head in a Bag'. This is the last movie you would use as the subject of a film analysis essay, but it certainly is an exhibition of camp done right- consistently entertaining with the perfect level of self-awareness. Beach Balls is tough to beat if you're looking for some mindless, lighthearted, good times.

Beach Balls is available on Netflix NOW
