The first Pitch Perfect was cute, funny at times but over-all just cute. The second Pitch Perfect, however, is laugh out loud funny. Sure, all through-out the film you’ll be thinking that most of what’s happening makes no sense whatsoever, but who cares? It’s funny!
So, the Barden University Bellas are now three times national champions in Acapella singing and ALL the remaining members are seniors. Why they were not recruiting the last three years, was not explained. They perform for the President of the United States of America and the First Lady but just when it seems like the performance is going well, Fat Amy has a wardrobe malfunction where her pants splits right in the middle and she flashes the President, the First Lady, the whole auditorium and everyone watching on television a view of her land down under.
Because of this they get stripped of their title and banned from recruiting future members and they get replaced by Das Sound Machine, the international acapella champions, in their tour. Beca Mitchell (Anna Kendrick) convinces the powers that be that they should be re-instated if they win the international acapella competition.
That’s basically the whole movie because we all know how it ends even without watching it.
Like many others I’ve been waiting for this movie since it’s announcement more than a year ago. I was scared of watching it because it had amassed so much hype I thought for sure that it could only disappoint me. In the end, after watching it, it wasn’t that bad.
Big Hero 6 is a 3D animation movie released by Walt Disney Animation Studios. It is inspired by the Marvel Comics super hero team of the same name. In a nutshell, it’s the story of Hero Hamada, a 14 year old genuis, and his quest to avenge the death of his brother, Tadashi, with the help of four other friends, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon, adrenaline junkie Go Go, neatnik Wasabi, and fanboy Fred and one squishy robot, Baymax, who was originally made as a healthcare companion. All six members, donning great costumes and high tech weapons/gadgets, form Big Hero 6.
It is very sad to think that I don’t have time to read anymore, but it is true. Because of the misfortune that happened to me around six months ago, I’m afraid I have not been able to use my free time from my full time job to do anything but earn more at my part time job and during the times that I don’t have part time work, I’m too stressed to use my brain and read. So I’ve begun entertaining myself with something else. Youtube.
Week after week since they announced the movie I check for the trailer and week after week I get disappointed. But now it’s here. The True Official Trailer.
I’ve had my doubts about Dakota Johnson playing Anastasia Steele. My main issue being that she looks like she’s in her thirties when Ana should be only 21. Judging from the trailer, I think she can pull it off. Even though in some scenes her face has all those lines that looks like wrinkles, her facial expression would probably make up for it. I only hope she has other facial expressions than that innocent doe eyed look of hers. But then again, she’s not the most important character on this movie for us women.
Jaime Dornan playing Christian Grey. I’d like to say it works but I don’t know. I’m still not convinced. I like the part in the elevator but him at the rest of the trailer, I still don’t see it. I look at him and I don’t see Christian Grey, I see Jaime Dornan.
We’ll have to wait until the showing in February 14th to say for sure. I hate that I have to wait this long just to see this movie.

My sister, Kris, and I have only watched the regular movie version of the Little Shop of Horrors which we watched when we were young. We had no idea what kind of extra scenes we would see in the Director’s Cut….
