Movie Review: Pitch Perfect

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.
I finally saw this movie 2 weeks ago and had such a good laugh on it. I loved the movie, it was basically everything I expected it to have: nice songs and a good deal of comedy.

I heard about the movie because of the involvement of Elizabeth Banks and Anna Kendrick. Both great actresses and since Elizabeth also did a great deal of off-camera work, I knew I wanted to check it out. The first trailers I saw of it got me hooked, yep this one was to be one to see.

The story itself is maybe not super original and a little predictable, but I don't mind. I wouldn't have expected much different. The characters themselves are just great though. They all have something that makes you love them (or want to strangle them now and then ;)).

The songs is what did it most for me though, I loved the mash-ups they did. My personal favourite are the ones they did for the 'Riff Off'. As I liked the music a lot, I've been listening quite a bit to the soundtrack as well. The soundtrack, however, has a lot of "cleaned up" versions of the songs they sing in the movie, which works great.

Have you guys seen it? Liked it? Is the music your kind of thing?

  5. This was a good movie! I would have liked it more minus all the puke though, haha! =)

  6. Ooh ik wil die film heel graag zien!

  7. Everybody, except for Anna Kendrick, is funny and energetic and they all definitely make this movie a lot better than it had any darn right to be in the first-place. Good review Arlette.
