Pitch Perfect 3 Poster

2 out of 5 stars (has some good moments, but is overall bad) Pitch Perfect 3 is the third installment in the musical comedy series about  a cappella and  the bonds of sisterhood.  If you enjoyed the other two and want one last hurrah with the Bellas, then you should embrace your inner completionist and seek this out.  And, even if you’ve never cared for this series, I would still recommend it purely to watch Continue Reading

High School Musical 3: Senior Year poster

3 out of 5 stars (average) Note: Upon rewatching this film, I find it absolutely shocking that I once enjoyed it.  The acting and writing are laughable, (the former especially for Vanessa Hudgens) the music numbers, while well-produced, took me out of the films' reality, and the self-congratulatory ending is ludicrous.  I would give it 2 out of 5 stars today (has some good moments, but is overall bad).  Continue Reading
