Director:

Trish Sie

Starring:

Anna Kendrick

Rebel Wilson

Brittany Snow

Plot:

Following their win at the world championship, the now separated Bellas reunite for one last singing competition at an overseas USO tour, but face a group who uses both instruments and voices.

Review:

Pretty sure this movie didn’t need to be made. It lacked a lot of what I enjoyed about the previous movies and was honestly a constant barrage of awkward moments. I like Rebel Wilson and her character but her arc was out there.

I can’t remember a single thing I liked about this movie now that I’m thinking back on it. They used the plot device that I hate where it starts off and then flashes back. The characters were all floundering in life and being very foolish. It was just an unnecessary movie.

2/5

Starring:

Anna Kendrick

Rebel Wilson

Hailee Steinfeld

Plot:

After a humiliating command performance at The Kennedy Center, the Barden Bellas enter an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to regain their status and right to perform.

Review:

I watched the first movie, I know I did, but apparently it was before the website. I vaguely remember liking it and that’s probably how I’m going to remember this one as well.

It was cute. It seemed to have some pacing issues where it was too slow at a couple parts and then sped through others. It’s a lot of people to follow so it’s going to move fast.

Favorite part was the underground acapella competition. Was not expecting to see all those comedians and the Packers, it was a strange combo, and hilarious.

I don’t really think this series needs any more movies, but it looks like they’re making another sequel, so we’ll see what happens.

3/5

Rebel Wilson

Plot:

Larry spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.

Review:

Movie ended on a sad note and not just because watching it I remembered how much I miss Robin Williams. What if I don’t want Larry, Ben Stiller, to move on with his life? What if I want him to be a night security guard for the rest of his days? Sure, I guess, they could do another with Rebel Wilson, but, no offense to her, it would not be the same.

Not sure why I reacted to the ending like I did because I’ve never been a huge fan of the movies. They’re cute and a nice little way to spend some time, which is all you need sometimes.

Anyway, the story was fine, a little contrived, they jumped forward on some things quickly. Mainly the relationship between Larry and his son, but it was a lot to cram into one movie. Lancelot actually made a joke about that and how it’s not how quests are done.

I liked the movie and if you’re looking for something on in the background it would be a good choice.

3/5
