Simply A Masterpiece
When a movie has you begging for it to end not even half way through it's pure crap. We've all seen this movie and this characters millions of times, nothing new in it. Don't waste your time.
One of the worst ways to make a cult movie is to set out to make a cult movie.
Pitch Perfect is a movie starring Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, and Rebel Wilson. Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition. Pitch Perfect definitely elevates from great work from Kendrick, Snow and Wilson as Fat Amy but also a nice balance between good humor and lots of singing that doesn't turn into boring or just irritating you know. This is definitely one of those movies where you don't expect it to like it in general but it turns to be a very good and cool comedy, musical by the end. (A+)
I enjoyed this a lot more than I would have ever expected. When I first heard/read about it, my instant thought was to stay clear as it isn't the sort of film I would usually go for, but I am so pleased I watched it. A very enjoyable film with a cracking little soundtrack, oh, and Anna Kendrick is in it. She's hilarious, and I never realised what a great voice she has, same with Brittany Snow. Don't go watching it and be expecting the next Oscar winning musical, it isn't that sort of film. Just sit back and giggle at the fun and don't be ashamed to admit you enjoyed the music either, I'm not. Oh, and Anna Kendrick is in it. It really is Aca-awesome.
If music is part of your life in any way, you'll love the movie, it takes a little time to get used to the movie, but about halfway there is a pleasant, flowing and light connection. Fall in love with the strange characters, and the funnyness of a-cappella, just a funny movie that goes beyond rating. Music is a unique art that can touch any person.
OK, I expected Pitch Perfect to be stupid, but I did NOT expect all the trite homophobia. The one gay character (only one? In a film about acapella singing?) is a sexual predator who preys on straight people. Which is NOT a joke even though everyone seems to think it's hilarious. That character is like a gay stereotype from the 1940s. Roy Moore would approve.But the worst thing about this film is the singing. OF COURSE they're pitch perfect because they're autotuned to high heaven. It hurt my ears. And my soul. There wasn't a single human-sounding note in the entire film. Plus, I kept watching the choreography thinking they were messing it up on purpose and that they'd tighten it up by the end. But no. They just couldn't do it. And the choreo stank, BTW. I can't believe I'm going to say this because my expectations were VERY low, but I was super disappointed by this film. Do not like.
