Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are back for Pitch Perfect 2

When it comes to my musicals, I’m a little picky. Sometimes a movie can really overdo it, or the songs end up being a trifle bit annoying. Going into PITCH PERFECT, I knew that Rebel Wilson would win me over, and she did. Plus there’s the appearance of WORKAHOLIC’s Adam DeVine. Then there’s that damn “Cups” song! You end up becoming that person singing it in the car until someone...

Cool Videos: Anna Kendrick performs the "cup song" from Pitch Perfect in new music video

I still have yet to see PITCH PERFECT, the college-age Glee pic starring Anna Kendrick , Rebel Wison, Brittany Snow , and Anna Camp, but it ended up being a pretty big hit for the intended demographic (a sequel is currently in the works). In the film, Kendrick's character performs an a capella version of Lulu and the Lampshade’s “You’re Gonna Miss Me" which has spawned a cavalcade of...

Christopher Guest's HBO mockumentary series Family Tree gets a teaser trailer

I have loved every Christopher Guest movie up to FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION. When Guest abandoned his mockumentary style of filmmaking that originated with THIS IS SPINAL TAP, Guest lost that magic. Sure, FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION was okay, but it was no WAITING FOR GUFFMAN, BEST IN SHOW, or even A MIGHTY WIND. Guest, who hasn't directed a feature since FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, has decided...

Review: Pitch Perfect

PLOT: An anti-social college freshman reluctantly joins an all-girl a capella group and helps them on their quest to become the number one such group in the country. REVIEW: A capella singing gets the wry, hip film treatment you been waiting your whole life for in PITCH PERFECT, a predictable crowd-pleaser that is essentially what I assume a feature-length version of a...
