Thoughts: Here’s how this movie came to be. An intern at Universal Studios was getting material together for a meeting their boss was having with Anna Kendrick about a new project. She was walking down the hall with the scripts to Bridesmaids, Bring it On, and a Glee episode. She trips. Pages go EVERYWHERE. She scrambles to put them together but they are all out of order. Even though she knows its wrong she gives the script to her boss anyway. Get this. Kendrick and the studio exec LOVED the script. The intern is now head of programming and Pitch Perfect is set for release in October.
In all honesty, this movie looks kinda fun and kinda funny…but if you consider it’s a mash-up of better idea it starts to have a tin look to it. Kendrick is finally getting to show off her voice and the valuable Rebel Wilson continues to show signs of a career of scene stealing…but will it all work out to an interesting feature?
Even me, a die-hard movie fan, has a list of movies they are ashamed to admit they either haven’t seen or don’t remember seeing. I’m not going to air all my shameful misses now…but here are three that I sincerely regret not seeing.Now this poll is a little different – I’ve actually seen all of these movies but am interested in revisiting a few of them…so I want you to vote on your favorite and I’ll review the top three vote getters for a few Camp themed blog entries.
You hold the cards (or remote, if you will)…let your vote be counted!
Synopsis: A reluctant reunion of two estranged sisters. One is on the verge of marriage; the other is on the verge of a nervous breakdown…
Release Date: TBA
Thoughts: Mira Sorvino is one of those actresses that gets better and more beautiful with age. Her early work was spotty and her Oscar win for Mighty Aphrodite was chalked up as a fluke until she took a break from acting and started making wiser choices. This NYC indie directed by Nancy Savoca seems to be a nice vehicle for showcasing Sorvino’s more developed acting chops. I appreciated the trailer not giving quite everything away while still letting us know what to expect. I’m not the biggest fan of costar Tammy Blanchard and feel that ever since she played Judy Garland she can’t shake Garland’s mannerisms…but here’s hoping that Savoca and Sorvino bring out more Tammy than Judy. Bonus points for adding Broadway divas Patti LuPone and Daphne Rubin-Vega to the mix!
