La La Land: Movie Review

Go. See. This. Film. La La Land has been one of the most hyped and raved about films this season, and for good reason. It is an absolutely epic romantic and gut wrenching musical, but not the kind you’re used to. The film does contain some typical aspects of classic musicals and love stories, but […]

Trolls: Movie Review

Trolls is so peppy that it enabled me to shrug off the 10 am Saturday morning grogginess, and enjoy a musical comedy computer animated film at what I consider to be the wee hours of the morning. Now, I have zero clue about Trolls dolls as my mom hated them, but I don’t think any […]

Sing Street: Movie Review

Tales of love, life and music are nothing new for writer and director John Carney.  Best known for Once, a modern indie musical, where a man and a woman connect over their mutual love of music to write, collaborate, and explore love over the course of one fateful week, Carney stays close to his comfort […]

Pitch Perfect 2: Movie Review

Damnit Anna Kendrick… seriously can she just stop. This review is not about Anna Kendrick herself rather, it is about Pitch Perfect 2 and how it literally slaps you across the face with some feminine power, new solid jams/mashups, and comedy through and through. That’s right Pitch Perfect 2 seriously had me laughing so hard […]

Into the Woods Movie Review

With that said, I f*!@#!g love musicals, especially Into the Woods. From set design to costumes this film was amazing. Recently having […]

Les Miserables Movie Review

“Sam Yakou’s Review” Les Miserables Movie Review – When The King’s Speech had finished it’s successful run at the box office — and awards shows — director Tom Hooper was in a unique position. Having just won the Best Director Oscar he was offered a project suitable for his experience as a dramatist; Iron Man 3. […]

Pitch Perfect movie review

Directed by Jason Moore Written by Kay Cannon (screenplay), Mickey Rapkin (book) Pitch Perfect movie review – When it comes to blending music and comedy, “Pitch Perfect” really does have great harmony. This is a snarky coming-of-age film about the world of competitive Collegiate A Cappella groups. There are some great laugh-out-loud moments, and while the […]

Rock of Ages Movie Review

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. “Just a small town girl…” As fun as it is to hear sometimes, pretty much the entire contents of “Rock of Ages” is stuff you’ve heard before, but performed better. It’s based on a cheesy stage musical that pays tribute to the jukebox hair metal anthems, power ballads, […]
