Kids today are growing up in a much different entertainment/social culture than my friends and I did back in Generation X. If we wanted to see a movie, we would have to go to the theater in groups, go rent a tape at a video store and meet up and someones house or sit around the TV and hope something good was on MTV. Now entertainment is as easily accessible and as instantaneous as making a call or typing a text. Here are a few of the trends I’m noticing that indicate how entertainment and interaction has changed for ‘Millennials’ and the up-and-coming group known as ‘Generation Z’…

The summer movie season is nearly upon us and here are a few of the most anticipated films that could rake in the big box office bucks…

“The Avengers: Age of Ultron” (May 1) – In this sequel the superhero team fights Ultron, an omnipotent robot villain born from Tony Stark’s technology. This film will greatly expand the Marvel mythology and introduce some new heroes and villains who are sure to appear in future films.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” (May 15) – This will be the first “Mad Max” movie in thirty years and according to the spectacularly chaotic trailer, this franchise rebooting may be worth the wait. Tom Hardy plays the new Max who faces off against two warring clans of survivors, one of which is lead by a one-armed Charlize Theron…

Netflix once again challenges network and cable TV with a potential new cult classic, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and all thirteen episodes have been released at once through the Netflix Instant online service.

After being saved from a doomsday cult which has been living in an underground bunker for fifteen years, Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) attempts to adjust to her new life on the outside. After a humiliating Today Show interview, she has an epiphany that she should start over, live in New York City and learn the ways of the modern world. She uses her settlement money to find an apartment tended by a sleazy, yet goodhearted landlord (Carol Kane) and moves in with a black, gay, desperate Broadway wannabe (Tituss Burgess). Through happenstance she gets a job as a nanny for the spoiled rotten kids of a clueless and vapid Manhattan socialite (Jane Krakowski), all while trying to keep her past as a ‘Mole Woman’ cultist a secret…

As I finish watching the third season of the Netflix Instant series “House of Cards”, I can’t help but think how powerful and great the internet has become that it can stream shows and movies instantly from the cloud to your TV, tablet or cell phone. Now that the U.S. Government will begin policing the internet in about six weeks, it begs the question… Is the internet about to be changed for better or for worse?…
