April was a review-heavy month for Pop City Life, but interviews and recaps held their own as well. Read on for our Pop City Life recap of April!
When notorious dinosaur-lover Noelle saw the Jurassic Park parody Hold On To Your Butts last year, it was love at first prehistoric screech. This year, Recent Cutbacks is back with the Lord of the Rings parody Fly, You Fools, and Noelle had the chance to interview Kristin McCarthy Parker, Nick Abeel, Kyle Schaefer, and Matt Zambrano about the experience. Speaking of Kristin McCarthy Parker, the Recent Cutbacks member recently directed The Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic, which Noelle reviewed this month.
Noelle also reviewed Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition, which she declared “a great experience for any fan of the iconic comedy series,” and then chatted with Monica Ten-Kate ahead of the season premiere of Freeform’s Monica the Medium.
Meanwhile, Rose reviewed The Midnight Watch by David Dyer – a book about the ship that saw every one of Titanic’s eight distress rockets and did nothing. Using articles and dispositions from the time, Dyer delved into the story with the aim of answering the question: Why in the name of heaven and hell did the SS Californian not rush to the aid of the Titanic’s 1,200 passengers that fateful night, despite being just a few miles away from the troubled ship?
Last but by no means least, Maria continued her weekly Grimm recaps. In April, Nick and the gang came up against an Inugami, a Barbatus Ossifrage, a Furis Rubian, and a Musasat Alsh-Shabab, and Maria was right there to guide us through the action!
April’s quote of the month comes from Noelle’s review of The Puffs, because how could we not?
