Pitch Perfect 3 movie review

Moana movie review


I wasn’t going to watch Moana, but, it is on Netflix now so I watched Moana. Moana follows Moana, a girl who is destined to be chief of her people on an island but is called to the ocean. However, her island is dying from a darkness and she must venture out to find Maui, a demigod who is the only person that can save her people and bring life back to the ocean. So, Moana is good. There is no doubt about that, and I will not try to dispute it. The voice acting is on point, Dwayne Johnson obviously being the highlight. The story is original and I had a good time. One thing that stand out to me is the water animation, which looked absolutely amazing… It is however, a rather forgetful movie. It didn’t have the impact on me that other animated movies such as Up, Inside Out, Brave, or Frozen had. I watched it a couple days ago, and even looking back now I couldn’t tell you any of the songs… I watched it once, and I liked it, but that was enough.

Pitch Perfect 2 movie review


Yes I am a guy, but I can admit that I LOVED the first Pitch Perfect. Pitch Perfect 2 is set three years after the original Pitch Perfect when they are all seniors, or super seniors for some! They are banned from preforming at the collegiate level, so they compete at nationals. I felt the magic of the first film was that it had the same effect as a dance movie, it made you want to do what they did! It made you feel good, and wanna move. It just had much, much better acting than most dance movies. If you are looking for that magic, it is certainly not here. Sure, stakes are higher, things are more serious. The thing is though, I don’t care as much as I did in the first, and I didn’t get into the songs. (Except with the German group, They kicked ass!) There were a few people I liked. Who stole the show was Keegan-Micheal Key, as Becca‘s boss. Every scene he was in was hilarious. Then there were the commentators, always funny. Then, Benjy and the new girl, who I can’t seem to remember her name. Other than that, everyone just played a stereotype. Hell, they played stereotypes too, they just entertained me! You have the fat one, the lesbian, the creepy one, the exchange student, the hyper one, and the ones that just seem to be there. All in all, yes I am ragging on it, but just because it was a cash grab and it shows! Its a decent movie, just not as entertaining or good as the first.
