Pitch Perfect

Posted on 14 January 2013 by Barry

I’m a BIG sucker for girly teen comedies and I’m not afraid to admit it! Teen Comedies appeal to girl’s majority of the time but they have to be truly terrible for me not to at least enjoy watching one. Mean Girls really revitalised the teen comedy genre back in 2004 and once again recently with Easy A in 2010. With the success of the TV show Glee, it was only a matter of time before the idea was capitalised and brought to the big screen. And although it may be predictable, it sure as hell wasn’t a let-down!

Beca (Anna Kendrick) has just started as a freshman at Barden University and is persuaded to join the all-female a cappella group to give it an injection of life and originality after its failed attempts at the previous year’s national competitions. It’s a simple set up, similar to 2000’s Bring It On and one thing that Pitch Perfect doesn’t have is originality. So when all bases have been covered in other films, how do you make your story stand out from the rest? You make it funny as hell!Film Title: Pitch Perfect

Anna Kendrick does a great job as the girl next door loner; she doesn’t expect anything from anyone else as she knows what a let-down that can be. But Rebel Wilson steals almost every scene she is in as Fat Amy, whether she is showing off her mermaid dancing or expecting back up dancers when she sings. Rebel’s style of comedy really gives a bit for everyone to enjoy. Also stealing quite a few laughs is the almost mute Lily who you will possibly be quoting for weeks to come. All the girls play off each other well but you can tell sometimes that when Rebel Wilson improvises, the others are speechless and don’t know how to carry it on. This is fine as sometimes in other comedies, when the improve goes on, it is dragged out and becomes unfunny.

The music is toe-tappingly catchy with some great mash ups that will have you searching for the downloads. The a cappella singing is pretty fantastic also as they constantly remind you they are singing without any band and creating all sounds with only their voices. Each scene where they perform whether it’s the auditions, the riff off or at one of the various stages of the competition, really shows how well all the a cappella groups work together and how outstanding the music can be.Film Title: Pitch Perfect

Beca has a nice love interest in Jesse, a singer in the rival a cappella group which never feels forced due to Jesse being a generally nice guy and very charming. The main focus is the competition and how Beca tries to change things up and put originality into the performances but the scenes with Jesse really do add a nice touch and help move the story along.

And as I’ve mentioned, Pitch Perfect is far from original itself but it never takes itself too seriously and knows how to play the laughs. Definitely one of the funniest and possibly the most fun movie of 2012, what a way to end the year! Aca-awesome!

Zack Snyder u Star Wars svetu?

Posted on 14 January 2013 by vule01

Star Wars duel

Zack Snyder, režiser filmova 300 i predstojećeg Supermana, već je negirao da će stati iza režije jednog od najvećih filmova ove decenije Star Wars epizode 7. Međutim mudri Zack nije napomenuo da će praviti filmove u Star Wars svetu.

Naime sajt Vulture objavio je vest da će Snyder razviti za sada neimonovani Star Wars projekat koji će biti smešten u SW galaksiju i odvijaće se paralelno sa sledećom trilogijom.

Treba napomenuti da je glavna okosnica priče preuzeta iz filma Akire Kurosawe Sedam Samuraja. To bi moglo da znači- grupa Jedi vitezova sa svojim svetlosnim mačevima brani sirote koloniste od grupe bandita/ loše sith ekipe ? ? ?

Sada naravno nije uopšte jasno kako će se sve to uklopiti u predstojeću trilogiju. Snimanje ovog paralelnog filma započeće tek nakon početka snimanja Epizode 7 koji treba da se pojavi u bioskopima 2015 godine. Pre Star Warsa  još jednom moći ćemo da se uverimo u veštinu Zacka Snydera sa filmom Man of Steel. Pogledajmo trailer:

Texas Chainsaw 3D

Posted on 02 January 2013 by vule01

Texas masacre 3DPremijera 04.01.2013 američki bioskopi – široka distribucija

Lionsgate, 95min

Glavne uloge: Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, Scott Eastwood, Bill Moseley, Elena Sanchez, Richard Riehle, Shaun Sipos, Dan Yeager, Gunnar Hansen, Trey Songz, Thom Barry, Dodie Brown, Keram Malicki-Sánchez, James MacDonald

Režija: John Luessenhop

Scenario: Kirsten Elms, Kim Henkel, Tobe Hooper, Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan, Stephen Susco

Nakon više nastavaka, jednog veoma uspešnog reboota Marcusa Nispela 2003 sa Jessicom Biel (možda i najbolji horor reboot ever) dolazi nam novi početak za teksaški masakr motornom testerom. Još jednom da se uverimo da u Teksasu žive retardi.

Ako se pitate gde se nova priča uklapa u svet ove horor franšize, ona je najbliže rečeno nastavak originalne priče iz 1974 godine. Da se podsetimo, nakon što je mlada devojka izbegla smrtonosnu sudbinu u kući porodice Sawyer i sudbinu svojih nesrećnih prijatelja,texas1 besno lokalno stanovništvo uzelo je stvari u svoje ruke, pobilo sve članove ove monstruozne porodice i spalilo kuću…ili je bar tako javnost mislila…

Nekoliko decenija i stotine kilometara udaljeno od zloglasnog masakra upoznajemo Heather, mladu devojku koja nasleđjuje misteriozno privatno imanje u Teksasu od babe za koju nikad nije ni čula. Kako bi upoznala svoje korene i videla novostečeno bogatstvo odlučuje se za zabavni road trip sa grupom svojih prijatelja. Međutim, njeno bogatstvo dolazi sa cenom koju mora da plati i hororom zvanim Leatherface koji je čeka u podrumu kuće…

Očekivanja: Nakon dosta turbulencija oko prava na ovu priču, kompanija Twisted Pictures (Saw) konačno se izborila i odlučila da započne jos jednu horor franšizu. Teško da kvalitetom može da se priblizi rebootovanoj verziji Marcusa Nispela iz 2003 godine, ali opet ne treba zanemariti horror iskustvo koje ekipa iz Twisted Picturesa donosi sa sobom.
