PITCH PERFECT 2 Trailer is Aca-Awesome!

To say that Jonesy and I love PITCH PERFECT is an understatement. That's easily become one of our go-to "comfort" movies in the past few years. Thanks to Latino Review, we have a new poster, which you can see above, and more importantly, the Ellen Show YouTube page posted the new trailer!

You can check it out after the break.

Netflix Instant: TV and Movie Picks

We starting to get into the holiday season. Are you Christmas decorations up yet? Just kidding. For this week, I have three amazing films that I enjoy for very different reasons. So if your football team is on a bye week, here are some picks to keep you entertained. 

Humanity is going through another ice age, and the remainder of the human race is left on a train traveling around the world as it tries to survive. Chris Evans is fantastic as the unofficial leader of the lower class as they try to strive for a better living environment. This film is a fantastic and entertaining thriller.

I have loved this movie ever since I was little. This was one of the first films I remember seeing in the theatres, so it has a special place in my heart. Nostalgia may play a part in how much I love thsi film, but it is still highly entertaining even today. 

This was one of my favorites from Fantastic Fest 2013. It's a small, revenge thriller where the plan doesn't quite go as expected. The film works because of the stellar performance of Macon Blair. He will be one to watch in coming years. You can check out my review here.
