"Pitch Perfect" reminds me of once be a regular viewer of "Glee" a few years, but into it's second season, I gave up on the series. I no longer care about the character and I dislike the background music which is consist of cappella sound bites. "Pitch Perfect" is a movie that made fun of it's character and putting many popular songs to cappella music, not many of those song had survived. It's just that many of those songs aren't fit for be a cappella song to began with. Many of the characters in the movie are downright lame. One girl who calls herself Fat Amy, another girl can barely talk. One keeps throwing up.These people aren't characters, they are cartoonish secoind rate characters. Only Anna Kendrick's performance is the only thing worth mentioning in the movie. I kept asking myself, why is she doing in the movie? She too good to be in this movie. Two weeks ago, she gave a good performance in "End of Watch," and now she's in this? Their stage dresses look like those that are wore by cocktail waitresses. I know that will be plenty of buss about the movie and people are bound to like the movie. But, I didn't like it. 'Pitch Perfect" is anything but perfect.
I'm not sure why I just said good, because I'm planning to see this for the second time, in the theater, this weekend. I truly enjoyed it.
Rebel Wilson is a riot in every movie I've seen her in! Of course this movie isn't going to be for everyone, but I found it funny and entertaining and it had me laughing and singing along. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and rooting for them along the way.
I will definitely buy this movie when it's on DVD.
When Elizabeth Banks took over as director of "Pitch Perfect 2" I was hoping for better things, but instead I'm only getting the same results. I might as well rewrite the review of the first pitch perfect movie and add a 2, nobody would notice. Over the past year, I wrote on Facebook and Twitter that I'm going to watch Pitch Perfect 2 because of Anna Kendrick. I made my promise, i saw Pitch Perfect 2 because of Anna Kendrick, I didn't promise that I would like this movie. I'm not going on Facebook and Twitter telling everyboy that I'm going to see Pitch Perfect 2 because of Fat Amy. And Rebel Wilson as Fat Amy is one of the main problems that still exist in the movie. Why must she call herself Fat Amy? In an time where body shamming is an issue, we get someone who prides herself of being called Fat Amy. Another thing I didn't like are the cast. They sound like sitcon rejects. Thge anchorpeople of the a capella comtition played by John Michael Higgins and director Banks, are so air headed they can't even anchor a second rate parade. Anna kendrick is again the onbly good thing that came out of this movie. Se looks mature, professional and she can sing too. I fread somewhere that Fat Amy should get her lown movie. Wrong! Anna Kendrick's character of Beca is the one who should get her own movie. I think she is a wonderful and talented actrress whom i happen to love very much. Added to the cast is hailee Steinfeld who appealing, but doesn't add much o the movie. As for the a capella singing, it depend whatever you're into that sort of music or not. The only song from that moviie from the group is "We Got the World." I heard Kendrick sing a few times. They are the only good moments in the movie.
I will say the best part of the movie for me was the music.
I call it entertaining!
It does have it's funny moments, But the outcome is very predictable. The cameo appearance of the Packers didn't do anything for the movie.
Predictable but fun with great music!
