Movie: ‘The Avengers’
Set to come to the big screen May 4, The Avengers brings the S.H.I.E.L.D. agency to life. With a collection of Marvel’s biggest heroes: Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow all led by Nick Fury to save the world from the evil Loki. A movie with the star power of Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson can’t be missed by any action movie fan. Like with all Marvel movies, this should be a roller coaster ride that may be only worth it on the big screen, so get some of your comic nerd friends and go see the movie.
Music: ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ by Nicki Minaj
“Roman Reloaded” came out with a bang —Nicki Minaj’s album debuted as Billboard’s No. 1 album. This latest album released by hair-color-changing fanatic Minaj is following up her debut album, “Pink Friday.” Minaj’s vibrant album includes a flurry of appearances from other artists and is headlined by her single, “Starships.” This CD will keep your car pumping for a bit — but only before we get sick of her new hairdo.
