That electric boogaloo thing is played.
 
2014-01-27 08:45:20 PM  
Cool.  The first one was pretty dang good, and I enjoyed it much more than I was expecting.  The previews made it looks like it was all about Rebel Wilson, and I just find her abrasive and annoying, thankfully her actual role was much smaller.
 
2014-01-27 08:48:34 PM  

Mmmmm. Elizabeth Banks.

fark. yes. this was the most satisfying and awesome movie ive seen in a decade. i cried and cried and loved every second of it and i have a whole playlist of movie scenes i watch All THE TIME. OMG the singoff in the alley? its everything i wanted college to be in my dreams. i think this is like Drumline for white people.
 
2014-01-27 08:48:41 PM  
I was hoping the original was more tongue-in-cheek. It seems like it started that way, but became fully bought into the a capella thing later on.

it was better than The Sing Off at least.

Nonsense. You're only saying that because people have been making that same joke for the past thirty years.

O, the multitude of ways in which I would like to disappoint her.

I would hit it so amateurishly the king of England would just as soon get a new sword rather than go through that whole metaphor with the stone again.

How about we dump this whole a capella thing and go for a 90 minute three way between Annas Kendrick and Camp and Brittany Snow?

This. My wife dragged me to this one. I had no interest and was actively trying to make excuses as to why I couldn't go. I ended up really liking it, so much so that I think I've watched the Blu-ray far more times than my wife has.

Plus, it supercharged my thing for Anna Kendrick.

I never even knew it was a movie until my wife tuned to HBO to watch it.  Like you, I've probably seen it more than the wife.  Cute movie, decent mix of music, humorous and doesn't hurt to have 3-6 cuties in the lineup.

She's not topless at all, but she plays essentially the same type of character on "Ground Floor" on TBS.

The scenes with Elizabeth Banks and the poor man's Fred Williard in the original were painfully bad.

willfullyobscure: i think this is like Drumline for white people


This. I think this must be true, and explains so much. I started watching it because there was figuratively nothing else on, and ended up loving the hell out of it. Never would've guessed it.
 
2014-01-28 01:13:42 AM  
This is one of those movies where watching the trailer actively works against most people's desire to see the movie.  It's cut like a teen singing comedy in the vein of Glee.  And yes, the movie open with what appears to be a contrived rivalry between the boys and girls acappella groups.  However if you pay attention to the judges commentary, the dialogue is pretty smart and jaded for what you're expecting ("Women are about as good at acappella as they are at being doctors").

Then IT happens.  I'm not going to spoil it.  But let's just say what happens right before the title credits roll should completely dissuade any doubts you have about the movie.

Hell they even mock Glee with a line about they're not there to solve any teenage angst or confused sexuality.

I'm sure if you asked nicely she'd give you a bag of her discarded toenail clippings.

Maybe some plucked nose hairs & bonus boogers to go with it.
 
2014-01-28 02:04:45 AM  
Haven't seen the first one, but this might be interesting.
However, I am going to have to insist that this film contain at least 8 Elizabeth Banks/Anna Kendrick shower and/or tickle fight scenes.

Do that, and it will outgross all the Star Wars movies combined.

My wife and I got to meet Elizabeth Banks in Maui on our honeymoon. My wife and I's honeymoon that is, not Ms. Banks and I.

She was there for the Maui film festival to show off a movie she did with Chris Pine which was actually quite good.

Anna Kendricks and I hang out quite often...at least in my head...

Yup.  Despite what one poster said above, Pitch Perfect is basically Glee in movie form.  And like Glee, I can tolerate it but it's not something I would actively seek out to watch.

The leader of the boy group
The rivalry with the old boy group
