Movie Review: Into the Woods (1991)

“I wish.” These are the first words of Into the Woods, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s timeless 1987 musical production, and the last. Dangerous, familiar words that, in the real world, can strain our relationships with our...

Movie Trailer: Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)

The Barden Bellas have returned for more singing fun in Pitch Perfect 2 (you can only keep a champion a cappella group down for so long). From the looks of it all the group — with a few additional faces — has return...
