This weekend brings Pitch Perfect 3 to theaters, offering a different kind of musical opposite Hugh Jackman’s circus extravaganza in The Greatest Showman. So just in case you haven’t seen the first two installments of the a capella franchise, Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Chrissie Fit, Hana Mae Lee, and Ester Dean took the time to run through both Pitch Perfect movies in under seven minutes. It’s not as fun musically, but it’s a good way to catch up for anyone who has a friend dragging them to the final performance of the 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.

As usual, the MTV Movie Awards this year were pretty uneventful. The best bit happened right at the beginning when host Rebel Wilson got the majority of her Pitch Perfect co-stars to do an a capella opening. Yup, that’s right, the Barden Bellas and Treblemakers hit the MTV stage Sunday night to sing a medley of popular hits including Macklemore’s Thrift Shop, Eminem’s Lose Yourself and more.
Fans of the awesome 2012 film should really enjoy this. I know I did. Check it out below. Read More »
