Dignity Trailer: Pitch Perfect 3!

After the two delightful bits of froth that were the first two Pitch Perfect movies, the third in the series finds the Bellas out in the real world after graduation – and and finding real life to be a lot less fun than the aca-awesome days in college.

What to do? What to do?

The teaser trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 offers a look at how the former Bellas choose to deal with that question – and it looks like an intriguing variation on what has gone before.

Pitch Perfect 3 opens on December 22nd.

Pitch Perfect 2

It’s not often you get a sequel that surpasses the original, but it’s happened with the aca-frikkin’ awesome Pitch Perfect 2.

Written by Kay Cannon (who wrote the first one) and directed by first-timer Elizabeth Banks, PP2 is sharper edged, more focused and has refined the vulgar-to-sweet ratio to a tee.

Pitch Perfect 2 stars Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Rebel Wilson, Elizabeth Banks, Hana Mae Lee, Brittany Snow, Alexis Knapp, Skylar Astin, Adam DeVine, Ben Platt, Hailee Steinfeld, and Katey Segal (among others). It premieres on May 15, 2015.

Costner

3 Days to Kill may be directed by McG, but at its heart, it’s the combination of heart and absurdity that has become the hallmark of Luc Besson, co-author of the script and one of the film’s producers. Sometimes that mix works (The Professional, La Femme Nikita, Fifth Element) and sometimes, not so much (The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc, Taken 2). Thanks to a stellar cast and McG’s energetic direction, 3 Days to Kill is great fun.

Romeo & Juliet: Passionate But Not Quite Enough!

romeo-and-juliet

Carlo Carlei’s Romeo & Juliet hits the plays high points with a certain amount of style and some passionate performances, but is sabotaged by overly rapid pacing and a script that isn’t all Shakespeare. It’s still worth seeing, but it could have been so much better.
