Pitch Perfect 3
We all loved the first Pitch Perfect movie: it was fresh, exciting and highly entertaining. The second one was a bit of a drag, and that is exactly why the expectations for the third installment are kinda “blurry”. Unfortunately, no details have been revealed yet, except that Wilson and Kendrick will be the main characters and will lead their team to new victories. The Bellas aren’t going anywhere either, so, expect to see the “original gangsters” in Pitch Perfect 3. The girls are still growing up and learning how to sing, how to dance and how to stand strong on both feet with all the craziness that’s going on in their lives.
48 Hours to Live
This is a stand-out cut, ladies, and gentlemen, as it’s not just a musical-dance movie, but also quite a mighty thriller. Wyatt, an ambitious dancer, has been having all kinds of problems with the law, and now the DEA is forcing him to work for them as an undercover agent. He is to “infiltrate” a nightclub that is known for its notorious reputation. But when the guy meets and falls in love with the owner’s daughter, everything changes. The life of a double-agent is not what Wyatt has signed up for, but he can’t just leave it all and run away with the girl because there will be consequences. Put this film on the list of Hollywood Music movies 2017 if dancing is what you know and love.

Mr. Miles Davis was one of the greatest musicians of the previous century, and his legacy is simply enormous. Don Cheadle did a wonderful job of delivering an exceptional performance. If you love movies about life-defining and industry-changing people from the world of music, this fascinating film is a must-see for you. Davis was right at the forefront of the jazz movement, but in the late 70s, the man was going through a rough patch: he was having all kinds of problems with his health, the drugs were numbing his musical voice, and the horrors of the past were haunting him like never before. Yet, he got back on his feet.
