movies of the week

In a rare move, I went to see two movies last week.  And I loved them both.

First, my friend Kristen and I went to see Pitch Perfect.  It was great!  A little bit cheesy college movie, a little bit of an edge, a lot of a cappella = the perfect Sunday afternoon movie for me.  My fascination with a cappella college groups started a couple of years ago with this video:

And it has grown ever since.  I may have even spent a Sunday morning searching for covers of Kanye West songs (they do exist and some of them are actually pretty good!).

One note about Pitch Perfect...I could have done without the vomit.  Especially the times you really didn't see it coming.  Too much.

While we were there, Kristen mentioned that she had never watched Finding Nemo.  I'll admit that I was pretty's definitely one of those movies that I assume everyone has watched at least once before, if not more given all of the times it has been on tv.

So a couple of days later, we were back at the theatre to see Finding Nemo in 3D.  And it is one of the best 3D updated movies that I have ever seen.  There are so many opportunities for quality 3D images - all of the underwater scenes with the different plants and fish swimming around.  It really was worth seeing on a big screen, and I don't often think that about 3D movies.  But Finding Nemo is such a quality movie anyways that 3D or not, it's always worth watching.
