“That Awkward Moment” — does a more cringeworthy name for an otherwise redeemable movie exist? (What’s that? The original title was “Are We Officially Dating?” Oh, okay, never mind then.) At first glance, it seems like little more than your standard terrible “bros party and get with hot chicks” fare, but I don’t know! This trailer is kind of charming, and it’s definitely no “Superbad.” Actually, I’m pretty sure this is a movie about guys havin’ feelings, which is weird.
Zac Efron stars as a casual dude living with his two male friends (played by Miles Teller and the always excellent Michael B. Jordan) as they all struggle to stay single. Yes, they are struggling with this. The title, I gather, is taken from “that awkward moment” in every “dating relationship” where you have to decide where it’s all going. That moment, to me, is less awkward and more like “that dry-heaving moment.” I’m gagging just thinking about it. But if all you’re looking for is some hit-it-and-quit-it visual man candy this morning, well, we’ve got Zac naked laying horizontally across a toilet for you. He later straps on a fake dick for what he thinks is a costume party. (It isn’t.) Will see! [Gossip Cop]
Outside of his charming smile, athletic frame and humble demeanor, Michael B. Jordan proved that he is an incredible acting talent with his Oscar worthy performance in the independent film about the shooting of Oscar Grant, “Fruitvale Station.”
Jordan, widely known for his roles in “The Wire,” “Friday Night Lights” and ” Red Tails,” delivers a sincere depiction of Oscar Grant. And that could partially be attributed to the amazing script, researched and written by equally as young of a lad–Ryan Coogler.
“Fruitvale Station” follows the lead-up events to the day–New Years Day– that Oscar was gunned down in the Bay area while riding the BART by a police officer while under arrest. Camera footage from the event The film won the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and is being praised as a “must-see” for all races and ages.

One of the breakout stars of this year’s Sundance Film Festival is an actor who’s been on my radar for awhile. His name is Michael B. Jordan, and if you’re a fan of “The Wire” and “Friday Night Lights” — two of the best television shows of all time hands down no debate – you know who I’m talking about. Michael’s portrayal of teenage drug dealer Wallace on “The Wire” tore my motherfuckin’ heart out. And a few years — and muscles — later, he did it again as East Dillon Lions quarterback Vince Howard. He steamed up the small screen and is poised to do the same on the big screen in the indie flick “Fruitvale,” playing Oscar Grant, a young man who was shot to death by a police officer at the Oakland, CaliforniaFruitvale rapid transit station. The Hollywood Reporter praised Michael’s performance, saying, “Jordan at moments gives off vibes of a very young Denzel Washington in the way he combines gentleness and toughness.” Young Denzel indeed.
