Pitch Perfect 3 Moves To Acca-gust

pitchperfect3Universal has decided to move Pitch Perfect 3’s release date from July 21, 2017 to August 4, 2017.  Movies opening in August are typically a bad sign, but Universal may be thinking that the Pitch Perfect crowd will see the movie no matter the month and this way they avoid an otherwise crowded release date.

Three other high-profile movies are scheduled for Pitch Perfect 3’s previous release date: a new Christopher Nolan film (no details yet), a new Fox/Blue Sky animated film (no details, but c’mon it’s another Ice Age film, right?), and the new Luc Besson film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (based on a graphic novel I’ve never heard of but now need to read).  That’s just the third weekend in July, 2017; the first weekend still has Pirates of the Caribbean 5 while the second weekend should see the third Planet of the Apes reboot.  The fourth weekend still has Sony’s latest solo Spider-Man movie on the calendar–quite a month.

Although details about Pitch Perfect 3 haven’t been revealed I’m guessing the ladies start off having fun, then they start to lose, then they participate in some strange amateur competition which motivates them to bring out their best and then they win the big contest at the end.  Call it a hunch.

Watson’s Top Ten Movies of 2014!


Ah.  Now we get to the cream of the crop!  The ten best films of 2014!  Hope you enjoyed your year of films as much as I did mine.  This was a strong year for movies; both blockbuster and arthouse.  While there wasn’t an all-time Hall of Fame entry (like Dark Knight or Godfather), we did have many 5 star worthy films.   Any of these ten films would have been a worthy choice for #1, in fact many of them even flirted with the top spot during the year, but when the dust settled here was the final list.
