Because, aviously…

As Season 1 comes to an end (an overview of the show can be found here), the story of John O’Neill is intriguing. The CIA and FBI, had they been capable of working together, quite possibly could’ve stopped 9/11 in its tracks…but politics and bureaucracy got in the way. The show does a good job …

The music is there from the moment it starts, kind of like how La La Land did, and young PT Barnum clearly always wanted to be entertaining. Growing up in poverty, wanting the love of a rich girl who he just couldn’t have, and when PT (Hugh Jackman) grew up he came back and swept her …

The latest (and last?) Pitch Perfect movie is an entertaining watch, but definitely not the best of the trilogy.
