Movie Review: Pitch Perfect 3

Last Call, Pitches

Pitch Perfect 3 is the third movie in the Pitch Perfect series. It’s Directed Trish Sie and it stars the usual Pitch Perfect crew with Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp and Rebel Wilson.


The Good

There’s very little good things about this movie, mainly if you’re someone who’s into covers and the singing battle they call a Riff-off you might enjoy the parts where they do so.

The Bad

This was a painful movie with an abundance of unfunny fat jokes. Rebel Wilson who was tolerable in the first movie, was annoying in this movie. Another annoying part is DJ Khaled, granted he’s not in screen a lot but do they mention his name a hundred times beating you over the head with the fact that he’s in the movie.


Anna Kendrick seems like she’s lost passion with this project and was clearly doing this for the paycheck and also we get John Lithgow with a terrible Australian accent.



Overall there’s really no big reason to watch this in the cinemas. It’s unfunny and even the singing wasn’t as good as before. Pitch Perfect 3 is what you call a cash grab taking advantage of naive viewers thinking they would go in there and have a good time. Not Recommended, (just keep watching the first one).

Good Bad 1/5

Movie Review: Coco

I have to sing. It’s not just *in* me… It *is* Me.

Coco is the latest animated film from Pixar and it’s directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina. It stars newcomer Anthony Gonzalez, Benjamin Bratt and Gael Garcia Bernal.

8 (1)

Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family’s ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.

The Good

Coco is easily this year’s best animated movie. The beautiful design of the Land of the Dead is one of the many highlights of this film. The colourful environment the neon colours of the animals and the look of the dead, it’s a marvel to look at.

5 (1)

Another highlight of this film is how they incorporated the Mexican culture. With the theme of Dio De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) you can tell Pixar did their homework to make sure they got it right and they did. Especially with a strong focus on family it’s fascinating to watch and it sucks you right into the movie.


The strongest aspect of this movie however is the story. Though it starts of as your typical Pixar movie with a character going from point A to B. There are moments in this film where they completely turns the story around and to a point where you don’t know where it’s headed. The story is incredibly enthralling and it’s beautiful as well as powerful.

The Bad

The only complaint I have for this movie, and it’s very minor is the humour, some of the laughs and gags are something you’ve seen before with skeletons pulling themselves apart and putting them back together. It’s very basic, but it does not hinder the overall quality of the movie.



As mentioned above Coco is easily one of the best movies to have come out this year. With a strong and powerful story and gorgeous animation. Coco will have you sad crying and happy crying. It’s a beautiful film accompanied by beautiful music and great voice acting from everybody involved. This film is highly recommended for everyone.

Good Bad 5/5
    • Beautiful Design and Animation
    • Strong Story
    • Lovely Music


Movie Review: La La Land

How are you gonna be a revolutionary if you’re such a traditionalist? You hold onto the past, but jazz is about the future.

La La Land is a musical and the second film by Damien Chazelle it stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.


Emma Stone plays Mia a struggling actress in Hollywood and Ryan Gosling plays Sebastian a struggling pianist in Hollywood. They fall in love in the most romantic and gorgeous way.

The Good

Let me start off by saying that this movie is amazing, from the music to the dance sequences to the cinematography to the overall look. Damien Chazelle has outdone himself in an incredible way.

Both Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling were great and you can feel the chemistry between them. They are comfortable with each other from their duets to their dance sequences it worked really well on screen and both should be given credit with their performance.


The dance sequences are also amazing as they appear to be filmed in one take, soaking you in as a viewer and keeps your eyes glued to the screen, Damien Chazelle did an incredible job filming the dance numbers and deserves a major award nomination at the very least.


The film’s overall look is gorgeous, you can tell this is a love letter to the older musicals in the 60s. The colours are usually primary colours with deep saturation which makes it pop in the screen which makes every scene look like a painting. The film’s music is also a huge plus as we can tell that Damien Chazelle has a deep love for Jazz. Each song is memorable and lovely to listen to, it does make you appreciate the genre a bit more.

The Bad



La La Land is easily one of the best movies of 2016 and for people who loves musicals, jazz and loves to dance this is for them. From the romance to the music to it’s characters, this movie rejuvenates the lost love for musicals. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling were great and though you can tell they’re not singers, you can tell they had fun with this movie and it resonates to the audiences. La La Land is highly recommended for everyone.

Good Bad 4.9/5
  • Incredible Cinematography
  • Great Music
  • Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling
