Get pitch slapped.
College student Beca knows she does not want to be part of a clique, but that's exactly where she finds herself after arriving at her new school. Thrust in among mean gals, nice gals and just plain weird gals, Beca finds that the only thing they have in common is how well they sing together. She takes the women of the group out of their comfort zone of traditional arrangements and into a world of amazing harmonic combinations in a fight to the top of college music competitions.
I have a weakness for singing movies.
And Anna Kendrick gives me a boner.
I need help, I think I’m turning into a teenage girl! First I enjoyed Warm Bodies and now I’ve warmed to the a cappella charms of Pitch Perfect. From the marketing and trailers I was expecting an excruciating two-hour long episode of Glee and, in some ways that is what I got, but rather than making me want to throw things at the television screen in disgust I became invested in the story about a group of collegiate a cappella misfits who try to win the regional finals.
Even after the closing credits had finished rolling I’m still not quite sure why I liked this film as it features so many elements that would normally have me running in the…
Never thought I'd watch this.
Never thought I'd actually kind of enjoy it, either...
It just wasn't for me, as I had predicted. The film itself is a walking cliché and none of the characters are even remotely developed. And (spoiler) I love how the lead actor just accepts that Beca didn't really learn from her mistakes and just had to reference The Breakfast Club to win him over. I honestly felt bad for the guy, but oh well (end of spoiler). But hey, when that woman is Anna Kendrick, I guess you can't blame the guy. Okay, maybe a little.
The music wasn't as auto-tuned as I expected it to be and the characters are fun. But when they tried to be "hip", either with the song choices or the stereotypes, it just…
Review In A Nutshell:
Pitch Perfect is a travesty. An Acapella based musical that banks on the success and "creativity" of Glee. A film that is so lazy in telling an original story that every single step along the way, except for Fat Amy's big reveal during the confession, was predicted.
Characters are so identifiably cliche, that I wasn't able to care for any of their problems whatsoever.
The songs are just painful to the ears; thinking that contemporary pop songs and mixing them with classic pop songs would blend perfectly when executed through an Acapella approach. Maybe I just hate remixing original songs because it demonstrate laziness in creating profit; which is what this film is.
I am so…
I've logged this film 11 times.
Amazing feelgood toe tapper.
Formulaic, obviously, and almost like a superior, double-episode of Glee, but with funny moments. Rebel Wilson saves the day.
...features a strange mish-mash of ideas that made up its storyline. It doesn't seem lazily put together though, and either way, it's fresh, infectious fun.
My university experience is suffering a severe lack of pop mash ups and Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick is brilliant, the ensemble cast are hilarious, the music is killer, the humour is sharp and the whole film is a real winner in my books. I love Pitch Perfect!
It has it's moments but a tad boring and predictable.
i think i cringed more than i laughed
This movie has been one of my favorites since it came out. And I love it so much that I've seen it about 30 times. I am a huge lover of music and anything a Capella so of course this movie is right down my ally. The singers and actors are great and it has such a good story behind it. Absolutely love this movie!
