Review: Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011)

This film was based on the FOX TV show Glee and its characters performing during their Glee Live in Concert Tour. It also focuses on how big the influence of this show to its audience where it features three different stories that include a girl with Asperger syndrome, a cheerleader with dwarfism and a teenage gay guy.

Since this was a concert film, it features most of the songs that they’ve sung on the show including Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’, Katy Perry’s Teenage Dreamand Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. Watching the film feels like watching a Gleeepisode since the cast are all in character throughout the concert with the montage of their fans being shown in between every production number.

The standouts for me are Rachel Berry (Lea Michele), Santana Lopez (Naya Rivera) and Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones) who I think are the three best singers on the show who can really sing good live. Brittany S. Pearce (Heather Morris) was also a scene-stealer as she danced a mind-blowing Britney Spears number while lip-synching I’m A Slave 4U. The rest sound auto-tuned and I am almost sure that most of the songs were lip-synched. There are also great moments though with a very special appearance of one of their professor that you have to watch out for.

Now, if you’re an avid fan of Glee, you’d truly enjoy the film since it’s on 3D, making you feel like you’re watching them live; but if you’re just a regular viewer of the show itself, watching this film isn’t that spectacular of an experience but it is good enough to have you locked on your seat for an hour and a half.

With that being said, I would give it a gleeful 7/10 rating.

The film will open on September 21st in the Philippines.

2011 SAG Awards Worst Dressed!

Nicole Kidman

We’re so frustrated to see Nicole in the red carpet looking sham once again! I mean seriously, we almost didnt notice her and when we did –we’re like. BLEH. So,we’re declaring her the worst of the night!FYI: she’s wearing a Nina Ricci dress.Nicole Kidman

***

Winona Ryder

This white Alberta Ferretti Dress would have been perfect for her if not for the black evening purse. Seriously, we don’t get the white theme she’s trying to deliver. FAIL.

Tina Fey

We usually love Tina Fey but not tonight and definitely not in this Oscar de la Renta gown!

Helena Bonham Carter

She definitely toned it down from the last time but we still don’t get it. This Marc Jacobs gown doesn’t really appeal to us. Kudos for the matching shoes tho.

Jenna Ushkowitz

I’m sure she didn’t get the Glee Girls Memo along with Naya Rivera, this Badgley Mischka gown is just way over the top for us!

Naya Rivera

This body-skimming Aurellio Costarella dress does not really compliment her body! damn! She should’ve look in the mirror first!

Marisa Hargitay

Another Oscar de la Renta disaster –nope, it’s not about the dress hun’

Christina Hendricks

Just another day in the office –wearing a L’Wren Scott –girl can’t really cover it up well!

Edie Falco

We love Edie Falco in Nurse Jackie but not in this Carolina Herrera dress. please.

Amy Adams

We’re half-hearted in this Herve L Leroux gown so we’re putting it in the middle of the best and worst.
