Pitch Perfect 1 Bellas

Once you’ve seen a movie a few times, the main story just isn’t as exciting. Your eyes begin to wander around the frame seeking other details. You might find surprises the filmmaker put in there on purpose, or happy accidents, but either way, the best movies always find ways to reward a viewer over and over again.

A movie that definitely fits that description is the first Pitch Perfect. It’s an immensely entertaining and rewarding film that gets better with every single rewatch. Want to know why Pitch Perfect 2 just made $70 million at the box office opening weekend? It’s because fans watched the first film so many times, they were dying for something new from the characters.

Since its release, I’ve watched Pitch Perfect dozens of times and have gotten to a point where the big moments aren’t my favorites. Instead, I’ve become semi-obsessed with some smaller moments. Forty-five of them, to be exact. Some of these are tiny nuances in a performance, weird line deliveries, or an odd piece of production design. Others are funny lines, random asides, touching moments, or scenes that I look at in a different way than most people. Either way, add this odd collection of randomness with the obvious stuff, like the music, and you’ve got a fantastic movie that made a really great sequel.

Below, read along with what I feel are the most random, funny, under-appreciated and best Pitch Perfect moments.

Rocket Science Production Photos

Rocket Science

A stuttering teenager falls in love with the star of the debate team, and is asked to join her competitive world. We saw Rocket Science at this years Sundance Film Festival and loved it. In our review, we wrote: “Jeffrey Blitz has created the next Sundance classic. See this movie, see this movie, SEE THIS MOVIE.” It’s a mixture of Election, Rushmore, and Squid and the Whale. Anyway, Picturehouse has released some production photos from the film, check them out below. As always, left click for higher resolution.
