Pitch Perfect (2012)
Pitch Perfect SynopsisBeca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who'd rather listen to what's coming out of her headphones than what's coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect.
When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college a cappella. This could wind up either the coolest thing they'll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.
Loaded with new takes on old favorites to hits of right now that are seamlessly mixed together, mashed-up and arranged like you've never heard before, Pitch Perfect is directed by Jason Moore, who opened our eyes to the very misbehaved life of puppets in the surprise Broadway sensation Avenue Q.

Here's Everything Wrong With Pitch Perfect In 1 Video
Personally, I think that anything that Anna Kendrick ever touches or stars in can do no wrong. But it turns out that the good folks over at Cinema Sins don’t share my same thoughts on the actress’ work, because they’ve taken it upon themselves to rip apart Pitch Perfect ahead of the release of its sequel.

Pitch Perfect 2 Has A Release Date Which Means We Can Officially Get Excited
When is it too early to start getting excited about a movie? Well, considering I’m the type of person who is already amped up for Christmas 2014 (SANTA!), my answer has always been and will always be the second there’s a release date. Sure, such targets can and often do get changed, but a release date at least shows executives have put together a mental timeline and are serious enough to work the project into their long-term plans.

But they also quickly moved on to the bright side, announcing sequels for two of their biggest hits of the past year, and one of them a complete out-of-the-blue surprise that has earned a sequel they probably never thought it would get

Pitch Perfect Cast Will Reunite For A Musical Opening Number At The MTV Movie Awards
With Rebel Wilson set to host the MTV Movie Awards later this month, it probably wasn't too much of a stretch to hope that the movie-focused awards ceremony might acknowledge Pitch Perfect in some way, beyond the four nominations it received. Wilson scored two individual nominations for the film, which focused on a college a cappella competition. And so it happens, some of the film's cast will reunite on stage for a musical opening number that's sure to be aca-mazing.

The Top 10 Movies Of 2012: Mack's List
The following ten movies are the ones that have really stuck with me. They’re the ones that have gotten better with months or weeks of age and have separated themselves from the pack. Some of them will definitely be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards and others will not even be considered. Some of them you’ll probably agree with, and some of them will probably make you laugh and doubt my credibility.

Pitch Perfect Trailer Has Anna Kendrick Showing Off Her Voice
A movie that involves a cappella singing is probably an easy sell for me, but watching the trailer for Jason Moore's upcoming music-themed comedy Pitch Perfect, it was actually the cast that grabbed my attention first. That may have been the intention of the trailer all along as we don't get so much as a note from any of the characters for the first thirty seconds or so.
