Pitch Perfect

Pitch Perfect is a movie starring Anna Kendrick (Up In The Air, Twilight) about a  girl arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: a cappela singers. 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 college a cappella world.

At first glance, it basically looks like Glee in college and in some instances it is. But they get beyond that with better arrangements and better acting (cough Lea Michele cough* bad acting *cough). The movie is clearly catering to the demographic that watches a show like Glee but I think it can also be enjoyed by anyone that likes a good comedy. Everyone is hilarious in this, especially Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids, Bachelorette) who continues to be a stand out in every role she’s taken. If you just sit back and just go with the college angst and the sappy romance, you will thoroughly enjoy this movie. Pitch Perfect is in theaters now. 

Robert Pattinson Being Considered As Finnick Odair in ‘Catching Fire’

Francis Lawrence has some explaining to do. I was already upset about a new director for Catching Fire, the next book in the Hunger Games Series, but now rumor has it that he will be casting Robert Pattinson as the fan favorite character, Finnick Odair. Lawrence and Pattinson worked together on the lukewarm critically acclaimed box office bomb, Water For Elephants.

No no no to this. Pattinson is NOT Finnick. Finnick is very much a pretty boy character and that in no way describes Pattinson. Plus I just don’t want my Hunger Games franchise to be tainted with anything Twilight.

It makes sense though that Pattinson would want to jump on another franchise because his other credits that aren’t Twilight have pretty much been DOA. Water For Elephants was not actually not a bad movie but it wasn’t that good either and Remember Me was quite terrible.

Of course I’ll still be watching the movie if he is cast, but I don’t have to like it. Hopefully they’ll go with the better choices that others have come up with.
