In It To Finish It

Watching the last of unseen sequels to Bring It On: Bring It On: In It To Win It (2007) and I'm nearly certain it's the worst of the 5 (gasp!). Feeling more ashamed of watching this than having not seen a number of classics (until recently for most of those). My BIO game is to guess the plot within 15 minutes and once again I guessed correctly. SPOILER: the rival cheer squads join forces. The shock. The horror... mostly horror. And the fact that ultimate evil is named "Voorhees" is just fucking silly.

Not sure whether I should be proud to have now seen all 5 Bring It On films. Now at least you know someone who has. Huzzah!

Watching Peter Sellers in the 1959 precursor to Dr. Strangelove, The Mouse That Roared is a real treat. Stating the obvious, the film's funniest moments are when Sellers is on screen as one of his three main characters (Duchess Gloriana being the best of the three). Worth seeking out if you enjoy Sellers and his excellent comedic work.
