Get Pitch Slapped
A comedy set in the middle of a war between rival a cappella groups and centered on a rebellious girl who joins one of the groups as an escape from her unhappy life at school.
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…
I have a weakness for singing movies.
And Anna Kendrick gives me a boner.
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…
Never thought I'd watch this.
Never thought I'd actually kind of enjoy it, either...
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…
Despite how formulaic, predictable, cliché, and sexist the movie is, Pitch Perfect is still an amusing and enjoyable movie with some memorable and hysterical characters and pretty good performances. The soundtrack is well worth mentioning too, featuring some new, well-renowned songs that get a cool twist on them that were quite welcoming.
Wouldn't mind watching this one again.

A fun movie with cool characters, great dialogues and some pretty good songs.
My 8yr old daughter made me sit through this and I was surprised to find that it actually works quite well as a satisfactory, middle of the road genre film.
there was a point during the final scene where i realised my eyes were starting to wet up because i was literally having such a good time and i was so proud of what i was seeing

Triggered: The Movie
Ugh what is it about mashups of pop songs that just destroys my ability to think critically about things
Watch this again before going out to see Pitch Perfect 2. I forgot how funny this movie was.
I freaken love this film.
Not as good as I expected, but an entertaining film. Anna Kendrick is amazing as always, but still didn't live up to the hype.
Sometimes, we watch one film and as soon as it's over, a song gets stuck in our heads that we…
